Making of Guxt

Pixel, the very creator of Cave Story that is meanwhile also ported to the PSP, made not long a go a little shooter game called Guxt. To my surprise and our pleasure he gave a little insight into the making of Guxt, including screenshots and text documenting the process. Very well done.

Game recommodation: Schiffbruch

schiffbruch.jpg

A kind of adventure game of well rounded suspense and puzzling is “Schiffbruch”. Like the title suggests you enter a lonely island after your ship has been wrecked. Your mission now is to survive, discover the island, build tools and prepare everything for leaving the island. Although the plot and the gameplay is simple, the game is addictive and mediative with soothing and relaxing sounds, like a follow up to the golden age of LucasArts adventure games.

Download Schiffbruch.
Visit the authors website (embedded in fancy Java, that’s why no deeplink to the game).

Game recommodation: Sumotori Dreams

sumitori.jpg

Sumotori Dreams. Indeed a fun game with people made of bricks, physics made of fun and a very appreciated two player mode (on the same keyboard). It’s a sumo simulation where you have to battle your enemy by throwing him to the ground or put him outside the circle. There are gameplay videos available on the website (or in our video archive).

Crazy Patterns

Keys:
Arrow-keys, X and Y/Z

More a demo than a game is Crazy Patterns. It generates truly bliss bullet patterns and is not merely meant as a game, although it has some gameplay, making this a nice “in-between” application.
