Meet The Team: Quadrilateral Cowboy’s Single-player Co-op

I'm always keen to see what Brendon Chung, the one-man Blendo Games, is up to next. From Flotilla to Thirty Flights of Loving, his games tend to reveal systems and stories in fascinating flashes and leave players the freedom to figure it all out, and they always have such a sense of fun. Apply all of that to low-fi cyberpunk and oh my, yes please.So…

Let’s Blather All Over… Quadrilateral Cowboy

Quadrilateral Cowboy is a game I've been watching with great interest ever since Thirty Flights Of Loving creator Brendon Chung first debuted it last year. It's about hacking, but not via irritating minigames or jargon-your-problems-away Hollywood magic. Instead, you learn basic (albeit fictional) code and take down everything from laser grids to gun emplacements with a twitch of your fingers and a wriggle of your…

Watch The Indiecade Quadrilateral Cowboy Trailer

Blendo Games' Quadrilateral Cowboy fills me with 8-bit feelings. The latest trailer of the archaic hacking game (aka "Twentieth Century Cyberpunk") has the kind of charm to it that few games can truly claim, complete with its totally lo-fi look. The latest trailer details some of the technologies you'll be interacting with as you perform your dial-up espionage.Go take a look.

Will You Blendo? Latest Humble Weekly Is A Smasher

Not sure we've posted about the Humble Weekly Sale yet. This is because all we enlightened souls on RPS all dispute the concept of 'weeks.' It's an artificial tyranny imposed upon us by the secret world government in order to keep us from the independent thought that would allow us to realise there are in fact 417 days in a year. The world leaders spend…

Another 20th-Century Cyberpunk: Quadrilateral Cowboy

Last century's best science fiction tropes really do seem to be the water this week, with Blendo Games putting out a trailer for Quadrilateral Cowboy that subtitles it "20th Century Cyberpunk". The gentle trailer of infiltration and hacking is explained like so: "When you have a top-of-the-line hacking deck armed with a 56.6k modem and a staggering 256k RAM, it means just one thing: you…

Scouse scoundrel David Valjalo gets taken on a tour of one of 2012's indie highlights, Gravity Bone follow-up Thirty Flights Of Loving, by creator Brendon Chung. Together, they unravel the myriad movie and game references buried deep in this short, sharp burst of first-person, spy-themed adventure.

Blendo On Quadrilateral Cowboy, Experimental Games

"Twentieth Century Cyberpunk." That's Quadrilateral Cowboy's elevator pitch, but "hacking that's not just some awful minigame" would work just as well. I played Blendo's latest during PAX, and my heart grew three sizes that day. Also, my brain turned into a copy of William Gibson's "Neuromancer." I quite like it, is what I'm saying. Afterward, I sat down stood in a deafeningly loud convention center corner…

Hacking Done Right: Quadrilateral Cowboy

I think I have every right to consider myself a master hacker. I mean, videogames told me so. Let's look at my qualifications: I can arrange electric pipe mazes, solve obnoxious word matching puzzles, and make my way through colorful, LED-hued node spiderwebs. That's right, governments of the world. You know you want me to lock down your security systems for you. Nice and tight.…

Dear Videogames, Stop Telling Me Everything

When I beat the absolutely wonderful Thirty Flights Of Loving over the weekend, I had precisely one immediate reaction: “Wait, what just happened?” I cannot even begin to tell you how much that excites me. But then I decided to write an article about it, largely because one of my greatest passions in life is defying nonsencial figures of speech. At any rate, Thirty Flights…

30 Flights Of Loving review

Like its predecessor Gravity Bone, Blendo Games' Thirty Flights of Loving is a short-form tale of cool criminals in a cuboid world, told from a first-person perspective with a hyper-compressed, non-linear narrative that focuses only on the drama and comedy, not the filler. Here's what I made of it.

Boney Fide: 30 Flights Of Loving Arrives

I'm currently pretending to be a robot who turns into a big red lorry, otherwise I would be ALL OVER Thirty Flights of Loving, Blendo Games' mini-sequel to the incomparable Gravity Bone. Folks who helped start Idle Thumbs' kicks have already had access to this tale of cuboid, supercool spies for a little while, but it's now available either direct from the dev or via…

Gravity Bone’s Sequel: Thirty Flights Of Loving

Hooray! A sequel to Blendo Games' delightfully inventive cubist spy mini-opus Gravity Bone. Thirty Flights Of Loving appears to be dripping with the same visual and sonic style as its most excellent predecessor.Double-hooray! It's being made in conjunction with the good folk behind the newly-resurrected and much-missed Idle Thumbs podcast! Lob 'em $30 via Kickstarter to help them get their show back on the road…

Level With Me, Brendon Chung.

“Level with Me” is a series of conversations about level design between modder Robert Yang and a level designer of a first person game. At the end of each interview, they collaborate on a Portal 2 level shared across all the sessions – and at the very end of the series, you’ll get to download and play this “roundtable level.” This is Part 4 of…

Wot I Think: Atom Zombie Smasher

Released a couple of weeks ago and picking up a good buzz amongst People Who Know, Blendo's Atom Zombie Smasher is a high-speed kinda-strategy game about the end of the world, and one government's attempt to stop it. You're the government. Stop it. I'm the games reviewer. Here's what I think.I didn't smash anywhere near as many zombies as one might have expected. This is…

Atom Zombie Smasher Is Out, Also Demo

The heroic Blendo Games (Gravity Bone, Flotilla) have released Atom Zombie Smasher, which is a game about killing zombies. But no wait come back! - don't judge things by the zombies and the really unattractive screenshots. Instead take a look at the trailer below, and then, warmed by the light humour within, head over to the Blendo site and download the demo. I think you…

Undeathcon: Atom Zombie Smasher

Flotilla and Gravity Bone clever-brain Brendon Chung's taken the lid off Blendo Games' latest project - and it's a zombie game. Wait, wait, wait though: Atom Zombie Smasher is marching its horde somewhere enticingly different to the brain-splatting norm. This isn't about skulking through the streets with a shotgun. This is a strategy game in which you genuinely have the tools to defeat the apocalypse.…

Fortissimo: Air Forte

Blendo Games latest project has just been released. The makers of micro-indie FPS-joy Gravity Bone and turn-based space-fleet-battle game Flotilla have let Air Forte out into the world. It's - to quote the site - a "high-altitude game of math, vocabulary, and geography". In other words, an educational game where you zip your plane around to select the answers. Features co-op, adventure modes and... oh,…

Motherships Ahoy: Flotilla Out With Demo

As many people have wrote to say, Blendo Games' Flotilla has been released. You can get the demo or buy the full game for ten dollars on their site. I've only managed to have a quick crack, but it marries random generation to the playfully cool presentation of his previous Gravity Bone to a turn-based game of tactical-space combat. The only sad thing about this…
