Brothers and sisters: like most games writers, I spent the morning tooling around my empty mansion, wearing a dressing gown and carrying a cane, and plotting a complex vengeance on those who would prey upon the weak and fearful. Over at Modojo, John Bedford’s clearly a little more eccentric. He was up early chatting to the people behind Bad Hotel.
You should read the results, if you have a minute. It’s fascinating stuff, detailing the arty backgrounds of the Lucky Frame team, and explaining quite a bit about the game’s sophisticated use of sounds. Bedford: he’s one of the good ones.
That’s it. Off now to try and make sure my gas-powered grapling gun shoots straight. Also, my cats are fighting.
One last thing: the main news out of Gamescom, as far as I can tell, is that Super Crate Box is coming to the Vita. Buttony!
