Heya!! Super III now has a Kickstarter!! You guys should go check it out!! I’ll be helping out with some of the artwork outside of the game (besides the op title screen thing).

Also here are some things I drew for Super III :0

Wall jumping and screen warping are the gameplay features in this 2d platformer. We’ve been seeing the art going around a bit but it’s really fleshed out into something unique and adorable. The kickstarter is up with an absolutely tangible goal amount. Best of luck to the team and we’ll check back in a week to see where they’re at!

Pumpkin Online Kickstarter Campaign

Upcoming MMORPG that takes the charm of Harvest Moon and infuses it with racial and gender equality, a game you can’t miss. There’s a small handful of games touching on the subject of Human Equality going around on the indie scene if you’re paying attention. For those who are into character customization, there are a few that include more in-depth options like Pumpkin Online allowing people to be who they are in-game. The kickstarter is up with a goal of $30,000 if anyone is interested in the project. Thanks for taking a look!

Getting into Icewatergames’ Eidolon, a post-human survival game with no explanation, just exploration. The hunger for finding diary entries on character accounts to this lonely paradise drives you through a solitary adventure as you hunt and collect food for survival, tinder to build fires to warm yourself, and discover a strange tale behind it all. If you thought finding evidence of human life would comfort you, you’ll find that it’s an entirely strange and archaic experience altogether.

If you haven’t already purchased your copy, here’s the link. The lands are vast and the soundtrack plays well over your lonesome trek through this stylistically minimalist world.

Gloomwood is a first-person adventure game set in a dark, procedural Victorian city. The game has some rogue-like elements (death will reset the city and all its inhabitants), but is altogether more focused on atmospheric/narrative elements than purely goal-based.

The cloaked denizens of Gloomwood wander the streets in various masks. Each type reflects the kind of behavior the denizens exhibits: the constable searches for criminal activity (but can be bribed), the doctor sells various apothecarial solutions, the priest heals those who have done no evil (and sometimes can also be bribed). Some denizens of the same type are non-hostile, others not so much.

When combat does happen, it’s quick and dangerous. A knife drawn from a cloak to cut your throat. Games can end quickly by venturing into the wrong crowd.

My intention has always been to create places that are interesting to explore for their own sake - without the need of quest objectives or markers. From the start, I’m just dropping the player off on a dock and letting them explore the city in its entirety, without any form of gating or key-hunting.

This looks insanely fun. As the industry moves forward, procedurally-generated level design (and sometimes other modular elements) becomes more prominent. We’re telling a story about a time we played a game that perhaps no one else in the world experienced when playing due to the randomly generated game content. We anxiously await a chance to play Gloomworld!
