    In case you missed our live stream yesterday, here’s the environmental sprite artwork I worked on for Aegis Defenders!

    This area is the Energi Ruins location, an underground city of sort that has been preserved relatively well. You can see the process from the gifs - not really sure if I like the final color scheme but it at least evokes the right tone and feeling I wanted.

    A Rite from the Stars is a 3D Point & Click adventure set in a beautiful yet dangerous land, where you play a mute boy who has to master 3 trials (and a final one) in order to become a man and a legend.

    Your character (Kirm) will have to demonstrate that he is braver, smarter and quicker than he seems.  Each of the 3 trials in A Rite From The Stars has a different play-style.  ’Wisdom’ behaves the most like a normal point & click adventure, ‘courage’ allows you to call on your spirit animal in order to overcome dangers, while ‘spirit’ (our favourite) allows you to enter a the spirit world where you’ll be able to commune with some very odd things.

    A Rite To The Stars is shaping up to be a weird and wonderful Point & Click adventure with plenty of variety and inventive puzzle design that promises no pixel hunts, pointless walks or inventories.  Did I mention your spirit animal is a meerkat and that in the spirit world you meet a giant musical talking donut?

    Ninja Pizza Girl is a side-scrolling platformer inspired by Mirror’s Edge and the 16-bit classic Sonic the Hedgehog, with a story based on bullying, emotional resilience, and pizza delivering ninjas!

    In Ninja Pizza girl you play as a delivery girl in a cyberpunk dystopia where you have to deliver pizza in the shortest amount of time possible, all the while defending yourself from other evil delivery teens out to bully you.  The idea of the game actually came from real life where a young girl was learning kung fu and delivering pizzas, hence ‘Ninja Pizza Girl’.

    The parkour platforming of Ninja Pizza Girl focuses on joy and exhilaration, not a brutal exercise in masochism, making for a game that’s that’s easy to enjoy but tough to master.  We’ll have a stuffed crust with extra parkour, hold the anchovies.

  4. Project of the Day—How come no one told us that so much of adult life would be all about crosswords? There are people in the world that don’t leave the house until they finish their morning crossword. There are people in the world that won’t go to bed until they get that last word in there. There was even an entire Friends plotline about them. Crosswords: ubiquitous. Classic. There can never be enough. Fireball Newsflash Crosswords puts a unique spin on them though: they’re sent over email weekly, which means the puzzles reflect very recent news. It’s basically a hybrid of Twitter and classic word based strategy.

It Took Seven Years To Make An Indie RPG So Good-Looking
Its creator started working on Platformer/RPG Heart Forth, Alicia in 2007. The result is an aesthetically beautiful game with a complex story, a detailed world and what looks to be pretty damn fun gameplay. Sadly, it’s still not done.P
Inspired by the likes of Zelda, Xenogears and Castlevania (Symphony of the Night, specifically), Heart Forth, Alicia recounts tale of a young wizard-slash-warrior girl trying to save the world from ultimate evil.
On top of that, we’ve got the familiar metroidvania-RPG fare: a large, connected world, steady character progression, loot, side quests, crafting, and so on. There’s a little bit of that in the trailer above, if you can notice it while you’re gawking at the art.P
As I mentioned, the game is still unfinished, which is why it was put on Kickstarter—it already managed to collect over $3,000 in just four hours, impressively enough. That’s five percent funding. In four hours. I foresee a bright future for this one. Should the campaign succeed,Heart Forth, Alicia is promised to arrive on PC in one year, in May 2015.P
