Other IndieCade 2008 entries

I was looking around the web in search of my IndieCade competitors, and found cool stuff..

Here is a platform game called "You Have to Burn the Rope". It's about burning ropes and letting a huge candelabrum fall on a huge boss monster. Cool stuff! 

Another entry to IndieCade is ColorDots. This game is about order and chaos and being fast about cleaning up, which is an activity I usually try to dodge. But this game actually makes cleaning up a fun thing.

The game Errantry might also be an IndieCade entry. I haven't figured that out yet..

Back to searching for more competitors now..

Artistic Statement

Interested in the ideas behind Where-Is-My-Heart-game?

For the IndieCade release I wrote a few words about what my goals and intentions are, with this game. It all started with a hike in the woods..

The Relativity of Reality

I was studying the effects of different colors. With this color choice I got pretty close to a "swamp world" feeling. (Also it reminds me of the classic GameBoy colors a little.) 
I am playing a lot with color effects lately. As an example, when Gray is picked by the player, colors could drift to a specific configuration. With this visual feedback the player gets to see, how Gray views his surroundings. This is maybe one way to convey his biased outlook on reality.

Comic Panel Effect

Already played the demo? If you have difficulties, making heads or tails of the comic panel effect, then this older blog entry might help you understand.
In future versions these panels will actually have effect on the game-play. For the IndieCade release I'm afraid I didn't have enough time to add any of this in a convincing way.
