I had an amazing time at Playcrafting’s Summer Expo. AMicrosoft NY’s headquarters,  500 people with a shared love for gaming, met to try out 75 games. I had a blast playing and watching others play games, that were in different stages of development. It was amazing to see the level of creativity amung video game developers. Left to me, if I was a developer,  I would chalk up a simple game plan and hope for the best. But there was unique thought in every game I saw. GENUINE unique factors! What’s amazing is that this experience was a two way street. The Developers were able to take away feed back from their projects, as gamers tested the waters.

I loved so many of the games, but I couldn’t put them all up.

Here’s a quick sum up of games to keep a look out for.  Enjoy and support the developers!!!

Awkward Date Game

This awkward date game teaches the value of working together. If you’re anything like me, even when I’m playing with a teammate, I tend to go about my own self involved agendas. But in this two player game, if you’re too far apart, there are devastating consequences. You can explode. Team work is needed to get ahead and the little mood heart in the middle lets you know, when you’re too far or too close. Smothering each other doesn’t work either. Sounds like the perfect first date to me.

Pollen

If I ever was reincarnated as a bug, I would want to be a butterfly. Pollen is an incredibly beautiful game full of rich and detailed visuals and you are a butterfly. But don’t think that you’re just flapping your pretty wings around in a blissful world. This butterfly must fight against killer plants and enemies. As you shoot off your enemies, your shooting powers develop.

Check out the video below for some gameplay. (music added to drown out the gamers in the background yelling)

Nyctophobia

An original horror game designed to target your worst fears. Nyctophobia leaves you deserted in the dark, scrambling to get a generator before your flash light runs out of juice. Your motivation isn’t only the consuming darkness, but the keeper, a shadow man, that is after you. That’s not the only way to die either, you can drown or step on a land mine, so the chances of making it out alive are pretty slim.

Check out this cool trailer:

Try not to die 🙂

Mobile Games

Gay Fighter Supreme

The first gay fighting game and a personal fave. The demo boasts that this game is considered offensive, immoral, and even politically incorrect, but I see it as poking fun and doing away with the negativity. Sprinkled with rainbows galore, Gay fighter supreme, is a street fighter style fighting game, featuring some not so average characters. Some honorable mentions within the playing roster are: a drag queen, a twerker, a man that could knock you into next tuesday with his boobs, and a fashionable fighter that will beat you with his overly priced birkin bag. This game is both hilarious and has some really good fighting features.  Plus, there’s also the added bonus of finishing your opponent with a GAYTALITY 🙂
