Become the Monster in Pale Blue

June 6th - via:
Pale Blue is a Kickstarter campaign started a few months ago by Indonesian developer Tinker Games. Inspired by various super hero shows, they began to ponder more on the villains. We know why the heroes fight. But why do the villains? Why do they continue to fight no matter the risks? Do they do it simply because they’re evil? Maybe. But even evil has a sense of self-preservation. For these villains to continue to fight on, there must be a reason. Some greater motivation. After all, what do you do once you’ve destroyed the world? (Read More)

Pale Blue – even "evil" has a story to tell

May 27th - via:
The game industry has told the tale of valiant heroes time and again – determined warriors fighting to save mankind, eradicating all the monsters and all the evil that dare stand in their way: because, as we know, good always prevails. Not this time, says Tinker Games, an Indonesian development studio that now aims to take a look at the other side of the coin in their upcoming 2D side-scroller action game titled Pale Blue, where players control not the heroes, but the monsters. In Pale Blue, a massive corporation called COCOON decides that humanity has plagued the world long enough and is beyond redemption – however, in order to create the new world they long for, the old order has to be wiped out first. This is where *you* come into the picture, the monstrous result of COCOON’s latest research project. Taking on the role of an elite killing machine in service of the company, you embark on your quest to destroy the world itself and eliminate the heroes that would stand in your way – the project came to be known as Pale Blue. (Read More)

Pale Blue, devenir un méchant de sentai !

May 26th - via:
Lassé de voir les méchants de sentai (Kamen Rider, Ultraman, Power Rangers…) n'avoir pour seul but la destruction totale de la Terre, le studio Tinker Games s'est interrogé sur les intentions réelles de ces vilains, et ce qui pouvait faire que défaite après défaite, mort après mort de leurs sbires, ils continuaient le combat. La raison "parce qu'ils sont méchants" ne leur suffisant pas, les membres du studio indonésien se sont lancés dans la création d'un jeu, Pale Blue, dans lequel on incarnerait l'un des membres de ce camp, combattant divers héros. (Read More)

Kickstarter Weekly: Witchmarsh, Within and Pale Blue

May 22nd - via:
Welcome back to The Koalition’s Kickstarter Weekly. It’s been a while since I’ve been able to find a common theme between each of three games, and that trend continues this week, unfortunately. In the meantime, I found three different games that either take an existing genre and apply it to a new setting such as Witchmarsh, or create an unusual, promising hybrid of genres like Within and Pale Blue. However, I was THIS close to finding three interesting games whose titles began with a “w.” Oh well. (Read More)

Pale Blue And Ready To Come After You

May 17th - via:
We are taught to ignore the story behind the evil doers. When the baddies sweep in to do their mayhem, we expect a hero to step forward and fix up the entire mess. Humans are flawed, social, and emotional creatures but we seem to forget that mistakes will be made. But sometimes our actions get a bit ahead of ourselves and our passions get the best of us. And ill intentions take the world by storm and display the not-so-great portion of our culture, our beings. With this comes a population full of despair and contempt. (Read More)
