Today’s spotlight is a bit different from my usual pieces as it is for a book. Collecting For Dragon’s Lair and Space Ace is as complete a collection as possible on the various versions, artwork and paraphernalia associated with the classic series from Rick Dyer and Don Bluth. While the series may not be huge in the public eye today, there is still a lot of love for Dirk.
One of my favorite indie studios is Cryptic Comet, headed by Vic Davis, the studio has put out several mechanic rich strategy titles in the last few years. His latest title: Occult Chronicles is now available for beta buy-in and I had a chance to try it out.
When I normally post these spotlights on Kickstarter projects, they’re about a game that looks like it will be something unique. And while today’s project may not be for a game, it looks unique nonetheless.
Good character design in a horror game can be just as important as the monsters coming after the player. Over the years we’ve moved from regular people to supposed one-man armies making it harder to feel scared.
But today’s spotlight for the kickstarter: Among the Sleep, looks to take things back in terms of character design with one of the most vulnerable characters yet — a two year old child.
