Star Swim continues ceMelusine’s dreamy East Van EP

Following prophetic visions and ghostly bartending, the third atmospheric oddity in the vignette ’em up East Van EP [Itch page] is going swimming. ceMelusine, who you might also know from his work on Glitchhikers, yesterday released “nighttime pool simulator” Star Swim. It wanders into a closed community swimming pool in the wee hours to wander around, maybe splash about, and perhaps sink into another world. Two years since the East Van EP started, I’m pleased knowing ceMelusine is still working away and weird new things will arrive in my inbox when they’re done. Read the rest of this entry »

Who Are You? Glitchhikers Devs Open Book Of The Dead

I am Khalfat, They of the Written Word, deer-skulled and carrying a stake and an inverted crucifix.

Ghostly Bartending In Summon The Apgrod

That's one Spooky Sour and a double whoOoOOOoOoOoisky

You may have mixed cocktails for dogs, but have you served spirits to spirits?

You’ll eyeball proportions of spectral fluids to mix and meet their orders, which may or may not be contributing to the summoning of The Apgrod, whatever that is. It’s the second game in the East Van EP [official site], a collection by ceMelusine of Glitchhikers makers Silverstring, and it’s out now. I like it.

Prophetic: Glitchhikers Chap Starts Game “EP” With Oracle

Do you really want to know?

These dreamy summer nights continue. Today I’m casting procedural prophecies and rolling my eyes back to watch surreal visions in ΘRAΩLE (and that’s the last time I’ll stylise that), spinning forecasts from words like “Knots”, “Earth”, and “Promises” then interpreting dreams of temples, trees, and dagger-pierced hearts. It’s too hot but I can’t stop staring at this gorgeous polygonal fire.

Oracle is the first game of East Van EP, a planned collection by ‘ceMelusine’, one of the folks behind lovely dreamy night game Glitchhikers. £1 gets you Oracle and three games yet to come.
