Introversion Software UK (Uplink, Darwinia) did it again!

Glad to see they once more looted the 80s. War Games want's it's epic ending back.

So I think it's safe to conclude nobody did the genre any more good than Rez in the meantime? Frantic shooters on acid are not worthy.

*boots up Rez on a deamcast*

Nice game alert:

Knytt a very nice exploration game that gets its cues from shadow of the colossus, ico etc.. (Wee! crazy name dropping) ..

It's also very smooth looking and sounding.

Knos: I am! It destroyed my well-organized superstitions I grew up on with Another World - stuff that moves doesn't necessarily kill you? :(

Yeah it's .. almost unsettling at first. But then it gets very comfortable. I mean it's been a long time that I have difficulties coping with too much tension in games.

This one, like the one's it namedrops, has moments where you might just stop and look at the countryside, instead of running like an escaped prisoner.

tune (crappy quality :()
Chameleon, actualy I believe pixel, the author of cave story shares a lot of the same motivation with us sceners.

He also made available piston collage, a music making tool that is an alternate universe equivalent of karsten obarski's soundtracker. Sideways!

Cave Story is the best freeware game. Period.

Some footage of everyday shooter by Jonathan Mak.


Whatever.. Every Extend Extra, Lumines, Rez Geometry Wars, Parsec47

1UP: So it's like a sketch (...)

Jonathan Mak: There are other effects I want to do.. I don't want to go into a whole techno explanation.

1UP: Looks like a live action charcoal drawing

Jonathan Mak: Totally (...) You can do it in color.

All the effects are mixable. So what I want to do is at the end you can unlock this feature when you can throw up the effect board (...) mix the effects on and off.

So you can mix effects on and off in realtime cause that's really what it is

It's actually done by code, there's no sprites or models or anything. What you're looking at is mathematical functions pretty much.

I like using programming to make visuals (...) You can tell each of those explosions are the same but there are actually really different, the way like no two snowflakes are alike (...)

The gameplay is like that: all the enemies spawn randomly with a certain logic and same with the music. There's lot of chance in the game, a lot of randomness.

geometry wars has induced so many clones :D

(and it's prolly the cousin or grand-son of some older games...)
