DAYUM!!- Transfatty Lives

transfatty_lives

Several months ago one of my mentors Patrick Sean O Brien from my earlier days of my career released his Autobiography about his life after being diagnosed with ALS from its beginning stages to his current status. It’s a Jarring film but totally expected from Patrick who is a film maker through and through. I have been meaning to write this forward several times but have always been side tracked by work and my own life.

Patrick from the days, when I was fortunate to have worked with him was a total insanely creative film maker pushing all sorts of ideas and methods, he did many things which I thought to be WTF’s but he was always on point with what the audience at the time deemed edgy and also the producers who were willing to green light such said project. Aside from that he was not afraid to do films based on whatever the subject matter. I recall him explaining the three breasted DJ skit which I was commissioned to create the interactive website which would coincide with his DVD reel of something he called the Body of Transfatty another master plan which he explains in his feature.

The film is a wonderful adventure which I recommend to people who may have difficulty understanding the effects of ALS. Currently the video is available on multiple VOD site such as netflix, google play and probably apple-tv.

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

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).
