DAYUM!!– HYPER LIGHT DRIFTER IS AWESOME!!!

1379510489-hyper-light-drifter

So Hyper-Light-Drifter a game created by Heart-Machine finally released for the consoles and its amazing. Fortunately I was one of the many that threw cash to get this project kickstarted. For a project that was kickstarted and end up being bearable is actually a tremendous achievement as there are a several projects I have witnessed that were total duds, some never saw the light of day. One of those titles I will mention in another post. As I was kindly expressing Hyper-Light-Drifter is an amazing game and is actually an indy production that looks as stellar as the Triple-A games of 80-90s generation with an equally more stellar sound track. The visual tapestry and the music composition adds a great layer of atmosphere and grounds the player in a stark but rich world. Another layer that completes this culmination of awesomeness is the gameplay mechanics. A game is useless without good gameplay design and mechanics. I highly recommend this game as a gift for anyone who likes to classify themselves as hardcore gamer. It’s not DOOM or any of the crazy insane indy games like MEATBOY but it’s up there.

One thing to be aware of this game expects the player to fabricate their own story as to how this world came by providing several visual aids, no text but pictures as a way to draw your own story. I am still unsure how I feel about that method of handling this game. Beyond that I am ecstatic that the game finally came out as I have been following this game for a while.

As I always seem to end this topics or mentions check out the game Available on Xbox, PS4 and PC(via steam).

THE DUDE DOES AN AMAZING JOB THAT I DON’T EVEN THINK I CAN TOP IT.

DAYUM!!–Cannon Busters: The Animated Pilot Official Trailer

canon-buster

So CannonBusters which seems synonymous to GunBuster a classic animation series but no relation dropped early this month which would be July 8th 2016. It was an amazing short by the Cannon Buster team – Lesean Thomas, Thomas Romain and the whole Satellite gang along with any other partner company and Artist that too part.
The music and animation blended beautifully, it had a vibe that simply screamed I wanted this damn animation made into a series.

Getting to the meat I am very elated that I supported the kickstarter. Was it what I expected and more? In actuality, I was unsure what to expect as I was not sure if the creator was aiming to follow what he started in comic which I also own. The comic as I briefly recall was most definitely a different take thus far but I am excited to see where they may go with this slight shift, again I am unsure if that was the original course, the creator can do whatever he feels. As for the look and feel this was a vibrant setting, not much is shown in terms of scale as this simply was the opening pilot or half a pilot as I would assume as it was only 15 minutes. Here is to hoping that this publicity affords them the greenlight to secure funding, as it does cost a great deal to produce this level of animation. If possible I would hope it was picked up by netflix as I have a love for how netflix works, then again this feeling is from a consumers point of view and not as a creator. Overall I would hope that the creators are benefiting from such a union.
