The Week of October 28 2018
For centuries, mankind has traveled the land to raid dungeons for riches and glory. This is not their story. You are Skully, an enchanted skeleton, living in the deepest part of the dungeon. You awaken to the terrible sound of the alarm bell, letting you know that intruders have been seen within the dungeon. Joined by your helpful bat companion Imber and armed with magic, you exit into the sewers of the dungeon, sword in hand, to begin your hunt. Why are they here? No intruders can be left alive to tell of this place.
Synther is an FPP simulation game with adventure-like, detective elements set in a futuristic, open world. The game has innovative, Commodore 64-like graphics, remindful of early 3D games and DOS applications.
The Pedestrian is a 2.5D puzzle platformer that takes “puzzle platforming” literally. You play as The Pedestrian (aka the male bathroom symbol) who works at the restroom sign along with his beloved (the female symbol). When she disappears, you must escape your day job and embark on a perilous journey where you piece the “sign world” back together to make it through.
