Mobile Monday: Quiet, Please!

qp0

Haven’t you ever wanted to get away from it all?  To just turn off the outside world and find some friggin peace and quiet?  Sure you have.  We all have.  Unless you’re some kind of freak who needs constant noise to feel safe, like that weird guy who lived below me once.  Damn, he was annoying.  Anyway, tangent, sorry.  Peace and quiet.  It can be hard to find, and it is the goal in this week’s Mobile Monday game, a quirky little indie gem called Quiet, Please!  Read on to learn more about it.

ThatGameCompany announces independence after raising $5.5m

journey

In a mighty, Herculean effort, thatgamecompany, best known for their quirky titles Journey, Flower and Flow, has managed to raise $5.5 million with the help of a large investment from Benchmark Capital. This kind of moolah will enable the developers to become totally independent. And what does this mean? Potentially no more PSN exclusive games. Good news for Xbox fans, perhaps not so good news for Playstation fanboys wanting to keep the unique experiences the developers are known for creating only for PS3 owners.

You were once one of many.  A proud working clan, you made sure that your great city ran smoothly, and stayed safe.  But one day, invaders appeared.  Evil entities, driven by a thirst for death and chaos, they slaughtered your clan.  But death was not the end for you.  Your spirit, a vengeful shade made flesh by unknowable arcane forces, has returned to the city it once loved.  Populated by the gruesome horde that took your life, your singular purpose is to wipe out every last one of them.  Oh, and did I mention all of that takes place inside […]

Press (Kick) Start: A look at some creative endeavors on Kickstarter

kickstarter

Tim Schafer is a God. There I said it… as have five hundred other video game journalists. The work of Mr. Schafer as a mere mortal, which has to date encompassed the years between 1967 and last month, was far and wide some of the most creatively interesting and amusing work in video games this side of the Uncanny Valley. Of course, all this changed after his announcement that his next game would be funded using the Crowd Sourcing model, better known as crowdfunding. “What is crowdfunding?”, you may ask in a overly whimsical tone. Essentially, it is where people […]

Mobile Monday: Bullet Time HD

BulletTime

I’m a commuter in New York City.  There are several methods of completely avoiding the Jesus people, the beggars and mariachi bands.  My favorite of these involves a pair of headphones and my iPhone.  Luckily, I just spent some time immersing myself into Kiloo Games’ new overhead shooter title, Bullet Time.

Sins of the Flesh Review

sinsofflesh1

I was browsing through the Xbox Indie titles and saw Sins of the Flesh, a new release by Silver Dollar Games.  The name itself sounds rather sinister, and when I took a look at the tagline, the game intrigued me even more; I had the feeling there might be something more to it than I presumed. My intuition was right, and I was pleasantly surprised by this inconspicuous game.  Sins of the Flesh is not long, nor is the gameplay complex, but the game shines in its story and atmosphere.
