As I mentioned last month, our next big Cryptic Sea release is an "album" of retro inspired games that will play kind of like tracks on a cd called No Quarter. My current favorite of the bunch is a game we have code named "gun" (it's not going to be called gun).
The basic story is as follows:\
Hitler survived and relocated to a remote island where he cloned himself 1000s of time to form a small society of Hitlers hell bent on world domination. You play as Vinko, a Russian secret agent sent to save the world.
The Hitler clones come in varying forms of degradative states ranging from the mentally retarded and horribly mutated to the super elite. I threw together a video of the beta (2 weeks in) from a few days ago, some of you might appreciate seeing a work in progress (rag doll Hitlers FTW!).
We submitted No Quarter to the IGF this year, it's still extremely early but the goal is to update it as we go, so fingers crossed that the judges check and we make it in.
The current track listing so far is: (Note that track titles are not final)
1."gun" (Mario + Wolfenstein)
2.Trivium (Tetris + Physics)
3."epic flail" (Missle Command + Rampage)
4.Hext (Scrabble + Hex board)
5."tree" (Art game + Sim)
6.Odyssey ( Lunar Lander + Awesome )
I'll post more info and screens from each game next week on the Cryptic Sea blog, but till then play A New Zero, it's fucking awesome.
