    Flight Fit VRは「美しい景色と音楽の中で身体を鍛える」というのをコンセプトに作られた、以下の3つのトレーニングがら構成されたVR作品です。Dragon Fit VR はドラゴンと空を飛んでいるうちにスクワットの辛さが緩和され、知らず知らずのうちに太ももの筋力強化を期待できるでしょう。Chair Absは、吸い込まれそうな美しい空と雲の中で清々しい気持ちで風を感じるでしょう。円盤のどこに隙間があるのか、夢中にになって飛んでいるうちに腹筋や太ももの疲れを感じにくくなるでしょう。障害物にぶつかるとライフが減っていきます。進んだ距離が表示されるので日々何メートル進めたかを確認できます。Plank in Heightは自分でプランクする目標時間を設定出来ます。普通なら床しか見えないプランクですが、この作品では海が真下に見え、鯨が現れます。その動きを眺めているうちあなたが設定した時間はあっという間に過ぎるはずです。三つの作品ともに、ゆったりとした動きでできる運動、美しい景色、心地よい音楽を心掛けました。年齢を問わない運動ばかりなので、是非多くの方に体験していただきたいです!

    VITRIOL is a personal project by Martin Pichlmair (co-founder of Broken Rules, known for Old Man’s Journey; see vertical-progress.net) and Charlene Putney (writer of games like Divinity: Original Sin 2 and NUTS; see alphachar.com). It is a narrative word puzzle game where only your wits can help you escape a bureaucratic nightmare. Level by level, you rearrange a mosaic of letters to find hidden answers within the words and progress through the story. Think of a crossword puzzle where the clues are part of the solution.There are word games where you move individual letters around, but few are narrative games. There are puzzle games that use language in creative ways, but very few require you to use your language brain in combination with a spatial challenge and storytelling. As far as we can tell, no other game with this combination of mechanics exists.VITRIOL is a game for readers and writers, for wielders of language. Our main innovation is that we use the elements of language as puzzle pieces. Every word puzzle has intended solutions but there are many ways to reach those solutions. Language is used like clay in our game - you re-make meaning from the raw materials provided as you progress.We were initially inspired by the mundane horror of filling out forms while moving country. We wanted to explore that feeling of “bureaucratic fear” and see if we could transform it into confidence. We want players to initially feel the sludgy, swampy mire of bureaucracy weighing down upon them, before realising by the end of the game how free they are to express themselves, realising that they have choices and agency in the narrative of their own lives.

This is a game where the consequences of your actions matter. If you decide to do something wrong or unethical, such as stealing the cash register from a local merchant, or breaking into a villager's home, the characters in this game will remember that and treat you differently.Although there are many collectibles and platforming challenges for the player to discover in the non-linear open world of Mr. Sleepy Man, the focus is on the overall experience of the game, the little moments, the funny scenarios you happen to find yourself in.

    The Story:A trans-dimensional life form explores the universe. Through the enormous amount of knowledge it accumulates, it doubts its own existence. Fleeing the intensifying feeling of loneliness, it gets lost on Earth. In the process, it penetrates deep into the consciousness of a civilisation that is helplessly overwhelmed by its own permanently changing reality and its technical developments. One day, the life form plays the 5-dimensional game "Bullets are round so their thoughts can change direction.", and an idea emerges that changes everything.The Background:I started working on this game over 9 years ago with a collage of works from beeple, Paul Robertson, Joan Cornella and 20 other different artists. I love 2D games very much, also because they allow an infinite number of facets graphically. Thus, two-dimensional games go far beyond 3D games. Especially in a shmup, I thought it was possible to break new ground in the genre. That's why my sense of time and space dissolved during the development of the game, which with its thought "Bullets are round so their thoughts can change direction." over all these years

Game has a single player and local multiplayer mode. Puck off came in 3rd in an international Big Indie Pitch competition. Judges drew a lot of connections to Rocket League, which was one of the inspirations in game's design phase. They also were quite certain that our target group isn't just the hockey fans we were mostly aiming for, but other gamers who are drawn to the fighting aspect of it.

    「時間が逆行する世界で、過去の自分と協力し、脱出せよ」をキャッチコピーにしたパズルアクションゲームです。各ステージにはポータルがあり、中に入るとステージの時間が逆行し始めます。時間が逆行した世界では、壊れた箱や割れたガラスが元に戻っていきます。そして、ポータルに入るまでの自分の動きも逆再生されます。ポータルから出たプレイヤーは、その過去の自分と協力しながら逆行世界のギミックを解き、脱出を目指します。このゲームで最も重要なのは、逆行世界での考え方を習得することです。例えば、「箱を落として、扉を開けた」あとにポータルに入ると、逆行世界では「扉が閉じて、箱が上にのぼっていく」という現象が起きます。プレイヤーは、逆行世界での出来事を想定して準備しなければギミックを解くことができません。つまり、順番が反転し、逆の出来事が起きることを想定してプレイする必要があります。このゲームをクリアした後には、逆行世界での考え方が身に付き、世界の見え方が少し変わってきます。もう一つ重要なのは、過去の自分の存在です。初めは、過去の自分に苛立ちを覚えます。自分が押してほしいタイミングよりも早くボタンを押されたり、ギミック解除の順番が違ったり、あるいは役に立たない馬鹿な動きをしていたりするでしょう。しかしプレイを進める中で、過去の自分との連携がうまくいくようになり、最後には、最も頼れるパートナーが自分であることに気が付くはずです。

    Learn a fully functional symbol language by interacting with three different cultures that settled on an active volcano! Collect and apply phrases and words you may not immediately understand, and discover that language is an expression of humanity.Eloquence is a point and click narrative exploration game that features symbol language puzzles. You learn to understand and eventually express yourself in a symbol language. The languages found in Eloquence are living and are used by the characters inhabiting the world. Test collected phrases and words on NPCs and study their response, to find out what symbols you are speaking mean.Each of Eloquence's languages contains varied linguistic features that can be found in natural languages from all over the world. There is no writing in the game other than the symbol languages. The game uses visuals and sound to enhance communication with the player.The game’s setting is a fictional, unspecified volcanic island in the Pacific Ocean, on which three cultures shipwrecked sometime the 8th or 9th century. This means that the language is mostly centred on physical matter (such as food, tools, and buildings) that are easy to capture in symbols and icons, instead of the digital elements and intangible ideas of our modern day times.You play as an alien that crash-landed just off the shore of this volcanic island, which is about to erupt. Find your way to the top in time to neutralize the threat. If you die, your time anchor resets you to when you just crashed, giving you another opportunity to ascend the volcano using the linguistic insights and skills you acquired during your previous run.All conflicts and obstacles in Eloquence are cleared via communication instead of violence. Eloquence furthermore has the mission to show that languages differ far less than you might expect.We want Eloquence to start a discussion on language and its place in the world - which is actually a discussion about what makes all of us human.
