It’s Friday! And at least here in Los Angeles, it’s hot and sunny, so I decided to put together a tiny list of songs to listen to while hanging out with Dante and playing some 3DS. (Hat tip to Diego Garcia for making most of these show up in my SoundCloud stream.)
Recommended 3DS games to play while listening: Tappingo, Pilotwings Resort, Aero Porter.
Our friends at Area 5 are finishing up their Kickstarter for Outerlands, a “6-episode doucmentary series on the people and culture of videogames.” I think it’s fair to say that if you are reading this post, Outerlands is exactly the kind of thing you are all about. Cory and Phil are even helping out with art!
They already reached their funding goal of $210,000, but more funding equals a better series (even more episodes). So get to it!
Beau is an expert at crafting excellent “let’s all play a game on the couch together” experiences, and Samurai Gunn is by far his best yet. It’s extremely simple to pick up and play, but offers deep reaction-based choices for the expert rōnin.
That Doseone soundtrack!
We’ve been playing early versions of this game all year, and I can’t wait for all of you to join in on the fun. It’s my favorite game of the year, and our go-to game whenever friends/enemies come over.
My buddy and game design mastermind Steve Swink just launched a Kickstarter for SCALE. Look how pretty it is!
The game is all about scaling the size of objects up and down and exploring the environment. In its early state, there are already all kinds of crazy things going on.
Is anyone else getting flashbacks to that episode of The Magic School Bus where the Frizz takes the class on a trip inside Arthur’s body?
I played an early build, and I’m super excited to see Steve + team finish this up and mess with all my preconceptions of how a 3D environment can be explored! I’m ready to shrink the whole world and put it in my pocket.
You have 4 weeks to grab your copy of SCALE for $10. Check out the trailer below!
