No Concept Hunter today

Being sick is one thing, but taking medication that makes me sleepy and prevent my brain from working is another.

I'll pass on trying to sound coherent and instead link to the YT playlist of Concept Hunter.

Enjoy my very first episode, recorded almost two years ago (Jan 2013). It's a little embarrassing but hey you gotta start somewhere.

See ya next week,

Education or not?

Concept Hunter - Transmission

Transmission hasn't decided if it's an educational game or not. It also hasn't decided if it wants to be played or not. It has completely decided to look beautiful doing either.

Concept Hunter - Bond Breaker

A prime example of a great education game, that not only plays well as a game in it's own right, but also teaches you science!

What's in a Game?

Concept Hunter - March

With this one, we go into the fun debate of what constitutes a game. Is any interactivity enough, or does it have to mean something?

Ghost Lag

Concept Hunter - Trappy Tomb

Really cool mechanic of ghosts implemented poorly really distracts from the core of the game.
