Bonny Doom – Hillary Cleary

Saturday, December 12th, 2015


Hillary’s house has just burned down. Amidst the turmoil of emotionally turbulent teenage thoughts, personal objects from the conflagrant material world have entered into a funky paradigm of human consciousness. It is the player’s job to expunge these objects from her thoughts, and restore the natural disorder to this particular cognitive universe. Not a JRPJ.

You are a human in a terrarium being farmed by a giant extraterrestrial eye. Trapped in a maze of ugly fake trees and fungus, you listen the sentient creatures that speak to you about your fate, but ultimately your only choice to give in to the alien being and rise.

Nicaragua – Lauren Amorese

Friday, December 11th, 2015


Nicaragua is a world navigated using the right and left arrow keys. The visual world includes a watercolor styled countryside with rolling hills, dirt roads, and trees. The world is explored through a bus, which rolls past small animations of animals and people. There are a few elements of magical realism, seen in the paper cranes that are flying and the live pinata. The audio in the world is all local. The forests have bird chirping and rainforest noises, the school has a party song, and the pigs oink.

Interesting articles about Game Art and Design

Monday, November 2nd, 2015

I was browsing the other day and came across a couple neat pages. First, Game Art Tricks, a blog which talks about the technical tricks behind game graphics. A lot of the stuff is too in-depth to apply to this class, but I think it’s a really inspiring site because it shows really creative solutions to complex problems.

Game Art Tricks, by Simon Schreibt

And here’s a really interesting article talking about the development of Shadow of the Colossus. If you haven’t played it, it’s a (really good) game which deals a lot with worldbuilding and creating immersive experiences. Again, most of the actual content is too technical (and outdated, since the game was developed for Playstation 2 and game technology has come a very long way), but it has some neat stuff.
