Textual/Technical: Two Games On The Page

Links for two different games arrived in my inbox recently, both of which use the printed page as a backdrop. In the case of super-hectic shooter Scraap (above), it’s simply a page of text for the background, but in the case of Fig.8 – a browser game on Yo! Arcade – you are piloting a bicycle through a printed technical drawing, and the type is the obstacle. Scraap is a simple scrolling shooter of the most derivative kind presented in a fresh way, while Fig.8 is a beautiful concept, and it captures that oddly dry abstraction of technical drawings in being rather dry and placid. Both games end up being a little infuriating, but it’s fun to see designers playing around with different art-styles in this manner.

You can get Scraap here, and play Fig.8 here.
