Unravel Gameplay Trailer

Here’s another trailer for ya! This one’s also from EA’s conference, but strikingly different from the other games the publisher had on display. It’s a sidescrolling puzzle-platformer where you play a character made of yarn, who has to use that yarn to progress by tying it to places to jump across gaps, among other things. It looks really cute and it’s easy to tell that a lot of heart was put into it. Adding it to my ever-growing wishlist!

Mirror’s Edge: Catalyst Gameplay Trailer

I haven’t played the original yet, but I’ve always thought it looked really cool. First-person parkour sounds dizzying but awesome, and the fact that the sequel will be a fully open-world is really promising. It also just looks gorgeous. Definitely on my radar!

Star Wars Battlefront Multiplayer Gameplay Trailer

If this trailer is anything to go by, the multiplayer is going to be insane. You can play as either the Rebels or the Empire, and it’s basically a huge, all-out war. The perspective switches between soldiers on foot to pilots in X-Wings and even Luke and Darth Vader as playable characters. I am very excited for this game now.

Fallout 4 Release Date Announced

At Bethesda’s E3 conference tonight, they announced that Fallout 4 will be released on November 10, 2015 for Xbox One, PS4, and PC. They also showed off a TON of stuff about the game, as well as several other games including Doom and Dishonored 2, so be sure to check it all out. With everything they showed about Fallout 4, it honestly looks like it’s shaping up to be one of the best games ever made, and the wait was definitely worth it. You get a REAL Pip-Boy with the Collector’s Edition–need I say more?

Chronos Trailer

Here is an intriguing trailer shown at today’s Oculus presentation for an Oculus Rift game called Chronos. It’s about a labyrinth that only opens once a year, and the game takes place over the course of the life of a man who makes several attempts to finish it. His age has an effect on his abilities–for instance, when he is young, he is stronger and faster, but when he is old, he must rely more on his wit and magic. I must say it looks really pretty, and I’d be impressed if they managed to get this to run at the required 90 frames per second. I’m also not entirely sure how third-person would work in VR, but perhaps that’s because I’ve never actually put on the headset. (Though I can’t wait to get my hands on one!)

Fallout 4 Reveal Trailer

War. War never changes. (But it looks a heck of a lot better!)

Lazors (working title) Prototype Up!

I am happy to announce that I have uploaded a prototype that a partner and I have been working on this semester for our independent study on game design and development. It’s the first game we’ve made in Unity, and it’s supposed to kind of be like Portal in that you are in a testing facility trying to solve puzzles. However instead of a portal gun, you are armed with a laser that you can use to turn on switches and reflect off of mirrors. Give it a try!

Onomatopoeia Quest Update: Prototype Up!

Hello everyone! For my first post on my new website, I would like to announce that I have uploaded a prototype of the game I’ve been working on all year, Onomatopoeia Quest, for people to playtest! I would love it if you would take a few moments of your time to try it out and see what you think, as well as look for any bugs or qualms you might have with it. Feedback is extremely important in making a game better! I’ve been working on it alone for so long that it’s hard for me to tell if it’s any good or not. I’ve already submitted it to my senior project adviser for grading, but that doesn’t mean I’ll stop developing it. Now that I’m graduating college, I should have more time to work on my own projects, which includes this game. I hope to eventually turn this prototype into a full game with several dungeons and quest lines, which should be more feasible now that I have the framework.

You can download the prototype here (Windows only). Thank you in advance!

Bioshock Infinite Review

Perhaps this is a bit late—Bioshock Infinite was released back in 2013—but I only just finished it, and let me just say, all the hype surrounding it was totally warranted. For my final blog post I would like to discuss this amazing game and hopefully make you interested enough to try it out for yourself, if you haven’t already.

Little Devil Inside Trailer

This trailer put a smile on my face, not just for the gorgeous art style but also for the sense of adventure that it invoked. It looks like a love letter to the Zelda series with some Tim Burton mixed in for good measure. I can’t wait to get my hands on this game.
