First-Person Fiddler: Magenta Sunset’s Minute Interactivity

By Alice O'Connor on September 26th, 2014.

Oooh!

I’m a prolific first-person poker. Let me loose in a level and I’ll try to press, pick up, inspect, use, turn on, turn off, and break everything. Nothing pleased me more than a good bathroom until I saw Magenta Sunset’s car. A new(ish) trailer for the first-person adventure game shows a little of what creator Joe Wintergreen calls “minute interactivity”–winding down windows, opening the glovebox, playing with lights, plopping your suitcase into the boot. Also it’s driveable, cruising down forest roads and across neon deserts. And that’s just the game’s transport. Me, I’ll shut up. You, you’ll watch this.

Like A Rolling Stone: InFlux Rolling Out

By Cara Ellison on July 24th, 2013.

Katamari dreamtime
Lovely roll-em-upper InFlux is ready to roll out, and you can help put it on Steam too. It must be lovely to be a ball. Imagine just rolling around in a paddling pool, for example.

I’m Rolling, I’m Rolling, I’m Rolling, I’m Rolling-nerrrr: InFlux

By John Walker on October 3rd, 2012.

Ever since I couldn’t get past the third level of Marble Madness, I’ve found a real affection for rolly-ball games. Even Super Monkey Ball! So I’m intrigued by a project from Aussie devs, Impromptu Games: InFlux. It’s a puzzle platformer, of sorts, in which you roll a small ball around what looks to be extremely varied locations, defying and embracing gravity. It looks at once calming and complex – just like me! You can see a bunch of footage below.

Ballin’ Outta Control: Balls Gone Wild

By Lewie Procter on February 13th, 2011.

No testicles were harmed in the making of this game
Ballin’ Outta Control is a lovely looking ball rolling game by Impromptu games, of Velociraptor Job Interview Simulator Pro fame. It has a mix of natural environments and weird greenhouses filled with abstract shapes and physics based puzzle platforming. I wonder whether this ball is friends with the ball from The Ball, the Monkeys from Super Monkey Ball, or the Marble from Marble Madness…

Trailer cleverly hidden beneath. Read the rest of this entry »
