The Making of The Last Express (1997)

quote [ At left: bluescreen footage with special rotoscope-friendly costumes and makeup. We shot on 16mm, under super bright lights for fast shutter speed & to reduce shadows. Vintage 1995 technology! ]

Interesting making-of posted by Mechner himself. Thumb and quote is from a recent tweet.

There's more (like a game draft* in form of a screenplay) on the author's archive page. The Prince of Persia diaries are an especially interesting read.

Day Repeat Day

quote [ It?s an entire life simulator, leaping through the years between each chapter, as you meet people, choose how to interact with them, and then the life-long consequences of those choices. All the while playing match-3 puzzles to complete your day-job. ]

Review of a great gloomy game that offers a pretty satisfying ending which is a bit hard to find due to having numbered clues. It will make sense of the bizarre video montages though.

NORCO and the Ethics of Sabotage

quote [ If you're allowed to use self-defense against an armed attacker, what should you be allowed to do to people destroying the planet? NORCO doesn't answer that question, but it provides a space to think about it real hard. ]

I'm actually in the middle of reading Malm's book discussed, it's quite good so far.

The forgotten Sims game

quote [ SimCopter represents a very early glimpse at true sandbox gaming, especially in a 3D space. Crash your helicopter into a car on the street? You?ll need to grab a second bird and head back to the scene to extinguish the fire. Leave your helicopter in the middle of the road? Get ready to solve the subsequent traffic jam. ]

It felt like every 2nd song in that radio was Wagner, but then again: to great effect.

VAMPIRE SURVIVORS

quote [ a very dangerous drug ]

One-handed-game that's relaxing and stressful at the same time.

Zeitgeisty: has an extensive Wiki page, an itch.io demo (the original variant) and a spoilery stats wiki.

It's also the clone of an an Android app.

Quote via first RockPaperShotgun review. There's more.

Almost Pong

quote [ Press space (or tap the screen) to make the ball jump and hit the paddles for as long as possible. ]

To teasers from your sticky tricky pong

Ancient Board Games

quote [ Playing games is a great way to socialize with friends and pass time in an enjoyable way. Humans recognized this a long time ago before there was the Nintendo or the PlayStation. In the absence of video games, ancient humans played with sticks, bones and pebbles, until someone invented the dice and with it came board games. ]

So why have you got an array of board games under your arm

Karawan by bippinbits

quote [ Guide your Caravan in a crumbling world. ]

Very compelling little puzzle game. Like a piece of driftwood, with all the usual annoyances sanded off.
