V1rus

V1rus is a bit of a strange hybrid action/arcade game by the good folks at the Digipen Institute. Imagine racing down tubes but controlling your vehicle in the same vein of Tempest and you’ll be on the right track. I can say there are unfortunately some issues with this one, but it still might be […]

Bontago

Check out award-winning, block-stacking strategy/physics game Bontago by the students at Digipen. An interesting and surprisingly simple premise, stack physics-enabled blocks of random sizes and shapes to mark your territory as you progress toward the flag at the center of the arena. Your opponents will be doing the same, so it’s a race of quick […]

Perspective

Today we’re checking out another awesome Digipen game: Perspective. This one is a little tough to describe, but rest assured it’s a very innovative take on a first-person puzzle platformer. If I had to put together a couple of references, I’d look at it like a fusion of Echochrome and Portal. Check it out at […]

Chrono Disfunglement

Chrono Disfunglement is another outstanding offering from the talented people over at Digipen Institute. It’s a third-person puzzle platformer that gives the feeling of a mix of Portal, Blinx: Time Sweeper, and a little Psychonauts. The premise revolves around using time manipulation to solve puzzles by affecting only one object at a time. The game […]

Nous

What is Nous? Well, it’s another awesome game developed by students at Digipen… we know that much. Beyond that, well it’s a little tough to say. This game is definitely pretty far on the experimental side of things and seems to focus on an AI that doesn’t know what it’s purpose is, so it’s puts […]

The results can be quite interesting and unique. There are some amazing visuals and a very colorful and accessible presentation. See how far you can last and how many […]

Void

Nope, don’t make the mistake… this game is just called “Void”, not to be mistaken with the episode I did a long while back on “The Void”. Void is by the students at Digipen and it’s a quite brilliant little first-person puzzler. Using special spectacles your player can actually see into the past and use […]
