This weekend we’re lucky enough to be exhibiting at the Caird Hall in Dundee for Dare to be Digital’s Protoplay Indiefest!
We’ve got our posters ready… but we’re not coming just armed with posters. Oh no. This is ISG we’re talkin’ bout, son.
WE’RE BRINGING GAMES!
HOORAY! BUT WOT GAMEZ? LET’S SEE!
We’ll be exhibiting Avoid Droid! Oh yeah! You get to play it on a big old screen way before anyone else will (we’re not releasing until 2014!) Here’s some of the modes you’ll be able to try…
DROID ARENA MODE:
The hard, fast, brutal arcade mode.
We’ll be running a high-score competition for this too, the winner gets to be in the credits as ‘AVOID DROID TEST SUBJECT A’. If you want to enter, we’ll write your best score down and put it up on the board behind us on a post it note. Keep checking back throughout the day to see if anyone’s toppled you!
CHILL OUT MODE:
Relax as Avoid Droid takes it down a notch, and takes you down the Blue Danube while endless waves of slowly drifting droids push you inexorably towards your impending death. In a relaxing way, of course!
There’s 50 missions to try in Mission Mode, each one stranger than the next. Fruit will run away from you, or fall from the sky like rain. You’ll grow twice the normal size, and shrink down to the size of a coin. And that’s just the start of the madness. Never a dull moment in mission mode, why not come try them all!
TIME ATTACK MODE
Die as many times as you like in 3 minutes of uninterrupted gameplay! Every time you die you’ll lose some points and the game will slow down a bit, decreasing your scoring potential. Watch a video of time attack mode here:
Good ol’ Frutorious will be there, hoping to reach a new audience! You’ll be able to play and download for free our TIGA award finalist game made out of plasticine, felt and pipe cleaners.
You’ll be able to play our early prototype of our arithmetic adventure RPG too! It’s only a very early prototype and looks very rough so we’ll not have it on display as such, but if you’re interested in seeing and playing our own take on an educational interactive experience, just give us the nod. Know what I mean?
AND THAT’S NOT ALL!
There’ll be FRUIT.
There’ll be FANS.
There’ll be SWEET SMELLS from nice smelling things.
But most importantly, we’ll be there! Charlie can’t make it, but he’s the Kaiser Soze of ISG. Not many people have seen him and those that do rarely live long to tell the tale. Mike, the Kobayashi to Charlie’s Soze will be there though along with the ISG entourage.
So if you see us, pop by and say ‘Hi!’ – ask us about the fruit thing! Ask us what we’ve got coming up next and what direction we’re taking ISG in the future! Talk to us about what it’s like to make video games the way we do…
We’ll see you in the Caird Hall on Saturday 10th and Sunday the 11th.
