Puzzler Altered from Glitchheart (DK, Aarhus) has a playable demo and should be launching the 12th of March 2021.

Gave the demo a playthrough and it's actually pretty good! Not a super big fan of the visual design. But the gameplay is sound. And that's where it counts.



Also out on itch.io

And now for a bit of gaming history with the Nintendo's Game & Watch series.

I'm a kid of the 80'ies and never owned one myself. :| But it was indeed my first digital game experience. Followed by the Commodore 64 and Amiga years.
But absolutely played Game & Watch games on my friends back in the days. A lot of them featured in this video from Nintendo Life.
Including the Game & Watch Table top - Popeye that a kid from my class owned. Those systems goes for prettysome nifty prices on E-Bay now a days.

Spotted another DK developed physical/digital hybrid game. EvoTag developed by IR Squad ApS.
Digitally enhanced laser tag with all the challenges that inherently comes with this type of concept. Let's hope it goes well for them.

Min tid på Deadline Games var pre-Total Overdose. Så hyggeligt lige at få lidt flere detaljer på Deadline historikken.
Eller jeg var vidst på kontoret i den tidlige konceptfase.

And also recently spotted a shit load of hyper casual releases from last year. From the normally very quiet @UmamiGames

Even more recently they did get quite the micro hit with ABC Runner published by Joypac on Android/iOS. 500.00+ downloads on GooglePlay. So well done! It's a brutal market out there.

Speaking of hyper casual @UmamiGames. The ball is rolling!

Tre danske spilentusiaster etablerede i april 2019 Umami Games med visionen om at skabe fremtidens mobilspil.

I januar tog de den amerikanske spilverden med storm med mobilspillet ABC Runner, som de sidste fire uger har ligget blandt de tre mest downloadede mobilspil I USA på Apples hitliste. Virksomhedens første investeringsrunde nogensinde fandt sted i februar, hvor de rejste 3,6 mio. kr.

Neon Knights - Humanity Erased

An early look at a super ambitious project from a new DK startup Eddaheim ApS. Currently in prototyping phase.

Looking good so far! @WILLAM and co!

Also nice so see a bunch of talent young people with AAA like ambitions kicking ass in Unreal. Best of the luck with the project!



The project seems to have started out as a short at The National Film School Of Denmark. And is now on the way to become a game.
Featuring Lars Mikkelsen.

DK release from Funday Factory.

Dice Quest
Image

Gave it a shot a few days ago. Well produced low calorie F2P grind. No forced ads as far as I could see.

The dice combat mechanics works pretty well with a few skills unlocked.
Not a whole lot of downloads so far?! A bit odd. Would have expected more at this point in time. Assuming they already had it perfectly tuned and monetizing well before full release.

Still no sign of their SYBO related game IPs.

Anyways! grats on another release to Funday Factory!

A Kickstarter has launched for DK project and cinematic platformer Vokabulantis from Kong Orange.
Featuring a ton of charming puppet stop motion animation and physical sets (photogrammetry scanned) by Wired Fly Stopmotion Animation Studio. Really nice stuff!

The goal is set pretty low (€70K) so it should be realistic to meet.. However I am wondering if it is just too low?! With the amount of people involved in the project. And the fact that this will take a loooong loooong time in development with DK salaries. Especially taken the really heavy iteration time into account working with a lot of physical assets and a projected 6-8 hours of normal playtime in the most basic package.
Felix the Reaper spent ages in development. This project will most certainly take longer.
I can only assume the Kickstarter is only a smaller fraction of a larger budget of what is required to bring the project to the finish line.
Best of luck with the Kickstarter. I have a hunch the campaign might go well with the quality at display. :)
Let's see! Nothing is given in crowd funding. And new IP will always face a tougher time to get noticed.

Update:
Featured in Troldspejlet & Co. (4:50)
https://www.dr.dk/drtv/se/troldspejlet- ... ard_236234
On a side note nice to see Troldspejlet has retured to a bit more low key format without the celebs and studio audience that they started out with in the & Co. format.



Updating with the http://kicktraq.com/projects/esbenkongo ... abulantis/
At time of posting (trending) has a very low accuracy but will refine over time.
