Fantastic Contraption: Why A Cat Is 100 Times Better

While at GDC I had the opportunity to sit down with Colin Northway, one of the creators behind the excellent VR remake (and the 2D original) Fantastic Contraption [official site]. We talked about how VR worked differently compared with traditional game design or, to put it less mundanely, why a walking cat dispensing sticks is better than a menu system. While at GDC Adam really…

Fantastic Contraption Video Mixes Reality And Virtual

It's hard to demonstrate virtual reality games in video, because most of the good ones depend upon them being viewed through a headset and not via a flat YouTube embed. This latest footage of Fantastic Contraption [official site] finds a good route though by alternating between video captured in-game, in-headset and via a secondary camera looking at the room which blends real and game footage…

Fantastic Contraption Coming To The Vive VR Headset

Fantastic Contraption [official site] is returning as a room-scale VR game built for Valve and HTC's Vive headset. The original game was a 2D browser-based puzzle game about creating a device to carry a ball towards a goal, but creator Colin Northway is now re-building it as a virtual reality experience in which you build similar devices in 3D. There's a trailer below.

It's called Art To Play. The idea is that instead of paying £6.99 you make an artwork relating to the game which has taken at…

Grappling Jellyfish: Deep Under The Sky Trailer

Colin Northway made Incredipede, a game about building a walking-and-climbing creature from muscle and bone. Rich Edwards made Pineapple Smash Crew, a bright, explosive squad shooter. When their forces combine, it turns out they form Deep Under The Sky: a single-button game in which you play a jellyfish who swings around in the clouds of Venus. It's out now for $10 direct from the developers.…

Feature: "You can now replicate QWOP in Incredipede"

Exclusive: Incredipede For Steam Trailered, Discussed

Incredipede was one of last year's most delightful surprises, and you should feel ashamed for not playing it. The grotesquely adorable creature constructor was not, however, without its flaws, and creator Colin Northway has no trouble admitting it. Now, though, Qwozzle's got her tiny yet mighty sights set on Steam, and she'll be completing her dogged climb into Newell's house of wonders (and hopefully apples)…

Impossible Creature: Incredipede

Left to steer the good ship RPS on my own today, I was feeling a little grim. Jaw set, lip slightly curled, brow furrowed, coffee cup crushed by my feeble fist: you know the look. Then I watched this footage of Incredipede ('a game about life and feet'), the next offering from the creator of Fantastic Contraption, and now I keep giggling to myself and…
