Interview JaJitsu

Indie Developer Interview: http://www.sharkarmstudios.com/2010/02/jajitsu-interview.html

Here is an interview that I (Nate) did with up and coming indie game developer Jason Boyer also known by the alias, JaJitsu. Jason is working on a few indie games right now, most notably a game featuring a boy embarking on an adventure guided by a mysterious squid called “Jables’s Adventure” You can read the interview at the Sharkarm Studios blog here.  I plan on conducting and releasing a new indie game artist interview every week.

Beautiful Games (Part I)

The Endless Forest: http://tale-of-tales.com/TheEndlessForest/ By: The Tale of Tales

A Massively Multiplayer Game that lets you play as a deer and allows you to explore the environment and interact with other users. This game has a different spin from most games in the same genre; All human forms of communication are eliminated, which forces players to use the “language” of the deer. The game aims to create poetic game play instead of the more common game mechanic of challenge.

Ridiculous Games (Part I)

So part of our hobbies include playing crazy amazing games.  These games poke fun at some of the cliches of videogame culture and strive for a quality similar to B-rated movies in cinema.  While they use over-the-top humor and graphics, the games are filled with unexpected content. Plus, they are just plain sick and full of epicness.
