Note - after a week hiatus due to the Global Game Jam where I made something, I'M BACK!

Concept Hunter - Walk To The Door

You wouldn't think a game jam game inspired by the windows interface is gonna be good. Though the execution is lacking the idea still caught my eye.

I Won Something!

2015-01-17 04:47:46 by KOKOStern

There was no Concept Hunter episode posted yesterday. Sadly I couldn't find the time as I wasn't really home the entire day. The good news however, are the reason I wasn't home - I was at the GameIS 2014 Award show, where I won the Best Student Game of 2014 for my game Ambi!

I got all kinda of prizes, including a crate of beer!

The entire event was during the day, and I spent the night celebrating with friends.

Concept Hunter will return next week hopefully on schedule.

 

Have a great day!

Concept Hunter - Letters From Secret Santa

A wonderful example of combining story with mechanics in a very powerful way. Each on its own is ok, but together they are incredibly engaging.

The Student Perspective

Concept Hunter - Perspective

A Unity student game is exactly my kinda game. There are a lot of issues with this platformer, but also a ton of heart!

No CH this week

2014-12-27 08:39:22 by KOKOStern

Sadly there will be no Concept Hunter this week. Here is a list of my rather shitty excuses:

  • I'm a bit sick with my voice not working properly.

  • My main monitor died so I only have my secondary one.

  • It's already a day late.

  • I have family over and can't record in peace.

  • I'm personally frustrated by all of the above.

I'm really sorry for letting people down but I rather just rest up and calm down, I want to be able to go to work on Sunday.

I promise to be back in shape for next week! Hopefully...

 

Have a good day!

Experimental Wording

2014-12-02 13:47:50 by KOKOStern

Concept Hunter - Onomastica 2

This one is just about as experimental as it gets. In such a case we can only look at it and think of the possibilities.
