Global Game Jam Cologne 2012 Round Up #1

As you noticed, over the last few days my blogging ground to a halt due the preparations for Global Game Jam 2012. Now that the dust has settled, let me tell you of it. It was epic! It was the biggest Global Game Jam we organized so far. We had almost 60 participants. We can’t [...]

TRAUMA Version 3

I recently released a new update of TRAUMA. The major update is improved image filtering. Something that some people commented on. TRAUMA runs at a pretty low resolution. I can’t really boost it without a lot of effort. But I was able to increase the quality of how the images are being scaled down.

Left: old and [...]

Watch Drive

I know I’m late to the party about this. But the movie hasn’t come out in Germany. So technically, this is still hot news. Drive is a great movie. You probably should watch Drive right now. Why aren’t you watching Drive. Ok, watch the Trailer at least:

I haven’t come up with this one-liner, but the best [...]

Spielen Sie nicht den Helden

Eine völlig sinnfreie Idee: Ein Videospiel, bei dem man mal nicht den Helden, sondern einen unbedeutenden NPC spielt, der dann natürlich kein NPC mehr ist.

Man steht morgens auf, geht seinen vorgegebenen Path entlang (nicht mehr als zehn Meter) zur Arbeitsstelle (wahrscheinlich eine Schmiede), führt die einzige Animation aus, die von den Programmierern vorgesehen wurde (schmieden) und trottet abends wieder zurück ins Bett. Am nächsten Tag beginnt alles wieder von vorne. Tage, Wochen, Monate, Jahre vergehen, und dann… kommt der Held vorbei!

Was folgt, ist das Highlight des Spiels: Man darf endlich seinen Satz sagen!

Ich hab gehört die Thrakeruskeristen sind schon vor den Toren der Stadt!

Der Held zieht wortlos weiter, nur um wenig später erneut aufzutauchen, diesmal schleichend. Als loyaler NPC lassen wir uns natürlich klaglos beklauen. Und wieder ist ein Tag vorbei.

elmur-scnclr-screen techno video

Two scnclrBleep-Videos are available at Elmur.net. Elmur is an open video-collaboration-platform, that enables public video-screenings around the world. Everyone is invited to host a screening event, where he or she can show whatever is available in the Elmur-videopool – trying to establish a new global positive perspective on sharing, caring and art. If you wish to support scnclrBleep and the technoid aesthetic and idea behind it – vote or comment over at Elmur: Video1 and Video2. You best watch it fullscreen.

Thanks a lot and maybe seeing you at one of the next public screenings!

Ending Catherine

I recently finished Catherine. At least I declared for me I did. Normally, I would attempt to get at least the majority of the achievements. But after witnessing all the endings, I decided to draw the line. The Babel challenges turned out to be a painfully difficult even on the easiest stage. The babel mini [...]

Stop Co-op Piracy

The philosopher’s stone of many game enthusiasts is how to bring their significant other to enjoy games with them. I am no different in this regard and my GF had to endure multiple experiments already. But expect from the occasional freak side-effect I remain unsuccessful in enkindling in her the kind of enthusiasm for the [...]

Backlog Update 6

Time for another backlog update. I finished another 4 games. With one game (Penumbra: Requiem) carrying over from the last update, this completes yet another quintuple.

Torchlight Apparently the only game that I was planning to play trough in the last update. I enjoyed it a quite a bit. It filled a sudden craving I had for [...]
