For A Song: MirrorMoon EP Expands, On Sale

By Adam Smith on February 4th, 2014.

To coincide with a week-long Steam sale, the enigmatic MirrorMoon EP has expanded its repertoire of planetary structures, adding objects that pay homage to various games, including Kentucky Route Zero and Gone Home. It’s entirely possible that I made a huge mistake when I allowed this one to slip off the frighteningly extensive list of games that I intend to play. I did noodle around with the prototype, which introduced the puzzling concept hinted at in the game’s title, but have only visited the full release a couple of times. It reminds me somewhat of Starseed Pilgrim, in that it lacks guidance or instruction but is constructed around concepts of puzzle and play rather than being a ‘go for a walk’ experience. The game is currently £4.19 through Steam, a 40% discount that firmly plants it in actual EP territory.

Fly Me To The: MirrorMoon Is Smart, Mysterious, In Beta

By Nathan Grayson on August 8th, 2013.

By John Walker on July 18th, 2011.

And no guns!

In January this year (yes, I actually checked before posting about something) Alec brought us news of Fotonica – a first-person free running game that was played via Unity in a browser. Some things have changed since then, and the game is now downloadable for Mac or Windows, playable in full screen, along with a ‘pay what you want’ offer if you’d like to give the developers, Santa Ragione, some actual real money.

No Mirrors, Lots of Edges: Fotonica

By Alec Meer on January 18th, 2011.

It is important that you play this. It’s free, so you’ve got no excuse. Not even that you’re colourblind or deaf, because it’s designed to be playable regardless of colour or audio cues.

Fotonica is loosely an auto-running game, in the vein of Canabalt or Robot Unicorn Attack, but with tasty dollops of Mirror’s Edge and Rez mixed in to create something hallucinatory, abstract and balletic. And all with one button.
