Some recent gifs and stuff

Been posting a lot of random gifs and picture of Constellation recently. Let’s put them all in once place!

Alistair Aitcheson leant me one of his Codex Bash buttons to show Constellation at Now Play This last weekend. It’s amazing! Hit the big blue button to make stuff happen. It’s a genuine puzzle to figure out how to release this thing without a big blue button to smash.

Colour cycling! I think this is probably the last filter (there’s 20 total, now)

Game was missing hands, so I added hands.

Hello

Goodbye

Later Play This

Gosh, it’s been busy here recently. Two weeks ago Ruari and I showed State Machine at the Leftfield Collection at EGX Rezzed. The week after that, I showed my other game, Constellation, at Now Play This, a festival of experimental game design here in London.

Both festivals and both games went down really well, but I am now extremely sleepy. I think in future I will try to avoid debuting two new games at two different festivals on consecutive weekends.

So, what’s next for Constellation? Hopefully a release, and any day now!

Constellation is basically a game where you type in anything you can think of and the game tries to respond to you, so in theory I could work on it forever – but after seeing people play it last weekend, I feel like it works better as a game with a tangible size, one that lets you play with a set of elements that you get to know well rather than one that tries to let you explore infinity.

Coming soon!
