Lovely Puzzle-Platformer Evergate Hops Onto Kickstarter

January 16th - via: hardcoregamer.com
At this point it’s probably time to admit that there really is no limit to the number of ways one can travel across platforms. Jumping from one to another is standard but by no means the only process. There’s swinging, gun recoil, grappling, teleporting, and any number of other methods of transportation. The spirit in Evergate comes with the standard bouncy hop, but getting airtime necessary to cover the gaps between one stable piece of ground and the next takes far more power than even a legless ghost can summon. This is where its soulflame comes in, which is basically a beam of light that activates crystals. The effect is dependent on the type of crystal, and getting the right result requires very careful targeting. Line up a the beam shooting it through a crystal and into a platform beyond and you might swap places, or send a deadly pulse running up and down the beam to destroy everything it touches. The destructive effect is useful if there’s a barrier between the spirit and the crystal, but not so helpful if it’s got a clean line to a poor spirit that should have planned better. There are multiple types of crystals with different effects, and the platforming is as much a puzzle to figure out how to use everything correctly as it is a run & jump challenge. (Read More)

Listen to Hi-def Music While Listening to the World Around You

January 15th - via: yankodesign.com
Audio cancelation is nice. It’s nice, however, indoors. Step outdoors and audio cancelation can be a dangerous thing. I remember almost getting hit by a bus ten years ago because I had headphones on, and didn’t hear the massive vehicle heading towards me. That’s where immersive, isolated audio can be somewhat of a drawback. What’s the solution? A pair of headphones that have the ability to adapt to where you wear them. (Read More)

Why is Skyrim composer Jeremy Soule’s $121,227 Kickstarter symphony still not finished five years later?

January 14th - via: vg247.com
Jeremy Soule is a BAFTA winning composer with over 60 credits to his name. If you’re not familiar with his name, you’ll be familiar with his music. Jeremy’s scoring credits include The Elder Scrolls Oblivion and Skyrim, Guild Wars, the Harry Potter games, and many more. What you might not be familiar with is The Northerner Symphony, a Kickstarter project Jeremy launched in March 2013. Composing a symphony is no easy task, but Jeremy said the project would be completed in September 2013. Over 4,000 backers pledged over $121,227 to help fund the project – including five super backers who pledged $1,500 each. The problem is, the Northerner isn’t finished yet and many of the people I spoke to who backed it are worried it never will be. (Read More)

[COMING SOON!] Frontier Wars Preview

January 12th - via: waytoomany.games
There’s a particular niche in board gaming that I’ve always found fascinating: historically accurate wargames. A subgenre that I’ve personally found increasingly difficult to get into. The extensive playtime, subpar components and sometimes painfully slow gameplay have never piqued my interest. Yes, the thrill of experiencing victory after a 1-2 hour session of dueling cerebellums must be intoxicating. But I could get the same satisfaction playing a thirty minute game of my favorite digital RTS (real time strategy game). Well, that was until now. (Read More)
