McPixel dev’s Mosh Pit Simulator is going to VR hell

Please understand that I am humourless. I have no patience for fun, jokes, japery, antics, shenanigans, tomfoolery, or banter. I’ve surgically served my face’s smiling muscles and developed a workout routine to pump the frowners. I am no fun.

And yet — mercy me! — I laugh like a drain watching snippets of Mosh Pit Simulator [official site]. It’s an upcoming VR game from McPixel developer Sos Sosowski, pushing bugs and glitches to the extreme as interfaces fall apart in your hands, flailing mannequins destroy a city, and a dinosaur warps and whips and trashes a kitchen.

The Magpie Collection: Odd Bundle Replacing Stolen Stuff

Berlin’s A Maze festival is pretty great, so I hear. Unfortunately, as will happen when hordes travel to a big event, a fair few people had stuff nicked this year. Laptops, phones, passports, and so on totalling 17,000€ were yoinked by dastardly scoundrels, so a group of indie folks are trying to raise money to buy replacements for the unfortunate.

People like The Stanley Parable‘s William Pugh and McPixel‘s Sos Sosowski are working on The Magpie Collection, a bundle of ten specially-made games along with art, music, and other stuff. You’ll find it on Indiegogo.

Stomp Stomp Stompolution: McPixel Dev’s Stomp It Up

STOMP STOMP STOMP.

McPixel is a wonderful little jolt of a game, as much an excuse for silly things to happen as it is a puzzle game. McPixeleer Sos Sosowski’s latest game skips straight to the silliness, with none of that slouching nonsense. Stomp It Up is made to be played on a dance mat. Oh sure, but can play on keyboard if you don’t have one on hand, but tapping away won’t be nearly the same as jumping and stomping along to the enervating and highly irritating soundtrack.

Pixel Prioritised: McPixel Steam Greenlight Interview

McPixel has exploded onto Steam and is the first game to reach Valve’s storefront through the Greenlight process. There’s a feature about the indies and Steam coming later, courtesy of Nathan who has been visiting Fantastic Arcade where he was witness to a Valve panel all about Greenlight. I didn’t go to Fantastic Arcade but I did wake up at 7.30 this morning, endure the difficult commute from my bed to my computer and put on my Serious Journalist Hat. Primed and ready, I sent a list of very important and serious questions to Sos Sosowski about being the Armstrong of indies: the first man on Greenlight.
