Concept Hunter Going on Hiatus

2015-06-19 09:02:21 by KOKOStern

The past two weeks have gone by without a Concept Hunter episode and for that I apologize. Last week I had an actual excuse - I had both top wisdom teeth removed and had a bloated and painful face without the ability to talk properly.

This week though, my excuse is much more lackluster, I'm flying out tomorrow night for a 6 week workshop at MIT. It's not a very good excuse to not have an episode this week - packing, but it is a great explanation on why we're going on hiatus until August.

I'm gonna be making games over at MIT and plan on having some sort of videos on my Youtube channel, but I'm not sure to what extent yet, hopefully that sounds at least mildly interesting as a substitute to concept hunter.

Thanks a lot for reading and keeping up with the show. People's support and enjoyment means everything.

Have a great summer!

Concept Hunter - Fathom

Fathom has all the bearings of a great metroidvania waiting to happen, solid basics and a unique mechanic. Luckily it's going to be developed further.

Worp Flow Speed

Concept Hunter - Worp

Worp almost makes it into the realm of Super Hexagon flow inducing games. It's missing something, but it's hard to put your finger on.

Shape Folding? Yep...

Concept Hunter - Shape Fold Animals

Super simple, no progression, and yet I played through 60 levels. Sometimes things just work, but it does raise questions.

Almost Rougelike

2015-04-24 11:35:29 by KOKOStern

Concept Hunter - REGEN

A great attempt at a Rougelike with a few issues. With a bit more polish and content this could easily be a proper 5$ game on steam.
