Third Episode of Adam's Venture ships - Revelations
In Adam's Venture 3: Revelations, you get to experience a flashback Adam has to earlier events in Oxford, which have set his adventure into motion. Left for dead by the megalomaniac Clairvaux leader in Solomon's collapsing palace, Adam relives his first meeting with Evelyn and their expedition to the small French town of Luz. Templar secrets, powerful corporations and the importance of keeping a promise all fight for attention in his feverish mind. Will he come to his senses in time to save Evelyn and the day? It's up to you in this third installment of the episodic series. Congrats to Iceberg and Vertigo!
Journey of Moses is 'first Bible-based Facebook Game' from Hexify
So we just caught wind of a new game that appears on Facebook called Journey of Moses.
The social game is in the social game genre that has been so popular in the last couple years and after playing it for a while I'm pretty darn impressed. The art is cute in the same vein popularized by Zynga and the story looks to be a faithful retelling of the Life-and-Times of one of the Bible's biggest heroes.
The game starts off with a short cut scene showing Moses in the basket and Pharoh's daughter pulling the basket from the Nile. Next thing you know young Moses is scrambling through his room looking for his royal uniform because 'Grandpa' has summoned him for a special mission - find out why those lazy slaves are causing delays!
The shop responsible is Hexify based in the Bay Area. That's a new name to our ears and only lends credence to the notion that there are a lot more Christian developers out there that we just haven't met yet...we'll reach out and see if we can't get an interview or something.
Meaningful Gameplay Game Jam: Creating Gameplay With More Meaning. August 12-14
The first game jam has been organized for August 12-14, thanks to the openness of a club called Iowa Game-Dev Friendship. The goal of this game jam is to explore meaningful gameplay through developing several prototypes of a mechanic or other game element and then critically analyze the prototypes and share the result.
In addition to being hosted on-site at BitMethod in Des Moines, Iowa, USA; it will also be hosted online. I’m still working out the details, but it will most likely involve setting up a UStream and/or video conference. Will Canada has a post about the game jam on his site, too. Spread the word!...
