Gaming Guilt: Sweatshop

Ooh, this is clever. It's the new free web game from Littleloud, they of The Curfew and Bow Street Runner. Like those, Sweatshop's noble aim is to expertly mate education and social conscience with smart and satisfying game mechanics. In this case, it's a canny twist upon tower defence games that also highlights the abject horror and terrible exploitation of sweatshop factories - and the…

Incredibly Thoring: Hammer Of The Gods

Apparently there's some comic called Thor. We've never heard of it. And now there's to be a movie based on the little-read book.* To accompany the film comes a little bit of PC gaming advertising from Littleloud, in which as Thor you must thwack enemies with the power of your might hammer. It feels like an iPhone game, and I'll bet my bum it is…

Night-time Story: The Curfew Less Wobbly

The Curfew's been in Beta for a few weeks now with all the four episodes running, but they've been a bit twitchy. However, as the end of its Beta approaches, it's basically in a good enough state for me to feel happy to link to it - which is pretty much what Curfewer in arms Simon Parkin said last night. As in, my saved game…

The Curfew’s Curfew Is Lifted

The Curfew, a free educational online game from Channel 4, launches today in Britain. The narrative-led investigative puzzle game is designed to teach political awareness, documenting as it does a near-future society dominated by an oppressive government, and asking the player to make decisions that reflect their own political opinions and meaningfully affect other characters in the world. The Curfew is developed by LittleLoud and…

We Are Watching: Curfew Character Teasers

We've previously discussed the graphic-adventure-for-web I wrote with Littleloud for Channel 4. Anyway, since then, they've lobbed up four interrogation-scene character trailers to introduce the main cast. And you'll find them below. Out towards the end of next month, and available free to play online to everyone. And I'm not saying any more to avoid spoilers. Yes.

Don’t Come Out 2nite: The Curfew

Videos of Littleloud's contribution to Channel 4's British Indies initiative has surfaced online. The Curfew is a graphic adventure set in the near future with a satirical Civil Liberties theme, built on the technology which powered the previous BAFTA-winning Bow Street Runner. There's a minor conflict of interest on this one, which I should probably make clear before progressing: I wrote it. So - er…

Not The Ted Hughes One

RPS had a splendid meeting today. Amongst our many conversation topics was the matter of conflicts of interest, and what should we do about them. Well, declare them, obv. And so I'm leaping at this chance to double down by posting this Unity-powered Iron Man webgame. Not only do I scribble comic stories for Marvel, but I've worked for Littleloud on another game. Oh noes!…

Cash Channel: Channel 4 Commisions Brit-Indies

Sometimes, the future creeps up when we're not looking. Part of me wonders whether this will be part of it. Channel 4, after some impressive successes with webgames like the Bafta Award Winning Bow Street Runner and the Tim Stone admiration winning 1066 have decided to spend a load more on making games, reports Develop. Key quote... The move is part of a £4.5m fund…
