DEVIL’S TUNING FORK

What if you saw the world with your ears? Devil’s Tuning Fork is a first-person exploration/puzzle game in which the player must navigate an unknown world using visual sound waves. Inspired by M.C. Escher’s classic optical illusion and the echolocation of dolphins, The Devil’s Tuning Fork allows the player to explore a new mode of perception through sound visualization.

As a mysterious epidemic causes children everywhere to fall into comas, one child wakes up in an alternate reality.  It is up to this child, the player, to determine the cause of the epidemic and save the other children trapped here.  By way of the devil’s tuning fork, a magical instrument that allows the player to perceive sound waves, the player must find all the children and successfully escape this alternate reality, thereby waking up from the coma.

Devil’s Tuning Fork was created over 6 months by a group of DePaul Students for the Independent Games Festival, in which it won the student showcase award.  A full playthrough takes less than an hour, which feels just about right as your eyes might melt if exposed to its visuals for too long.  It’s an unsettling, disorientating, beautiful first-person puzzle/platforming masterpiece.  Highly recommended.

SPEED CAT: SPECTRUM

Speed Cat: Spectrum is a fairly simple but addictive infinite runner where you charge headlong into the screen, picking up coins and power-ups and avoiding obstacles.  The whole experience is enhanced by the distinctive visual style, awesome retro soundtrack and your pulsing multi-coloured cat (everything is better with cats).

It’s a truly bizarre but addictive and enjoyable experience, that feels like Temple Run on Rainbow Road, with a dash of LSD and Cats!

HE-MAN – THE GAME

By the power of Grayskull, He-Man is back, with a bunch of friends and ready to kick Skeletors boney ass!   (Spotted by Kotaku)  This fan made game is an excellent 4 player co-op side-scrolling beat-em up featuring all your favorite characters (and Orko) from the classic He-Man cartoons.  The game is still in development, but the dev has released a great 9 level demo, featuring 1 boss battle.  Playable charcacters include He-Man, Orko, Sorceress, Man at Arms and She-Ra.  It’s great nostalgic fun, perfectly recreating the feeling of playing a classic arcade brawler and bringing the classic he-man characters to life (then beating them to a pulp)
