I can't think of a game that wouldn't be improved with the addition of a scream button.

Those hand animations on the DJ really do it for me. :)

Sir, if you could refrain from telling people to make "some noise", it'll be good for the whole neighborhood

Sweet webisode, keep 'em coming

Internet Explorer? Why not one of the dozen or so other browsers that are out there? I always have about 5 different browsers installed, since Chrome, Firefox, Opera, Seamonkey and Lynx all have issues with some websites or plugins, but usually not the same ones.

First game reminds me a little of Teleglitch with the top down view and creepy space station wandering. Just a little slower paced.

What's the name of the second game? I don't think it got mentioned. Hipsboard?

No idea, Patrick didn't mention the name. But looked pretty funny.

@patrickklepek: In the first game ("Stasis"?), you were over-thinking the Sanity mechanic with questions like "Why would my sanity go up when I see a dead body?"

Your sanity goes down when it's dark. Your sanity goes up when you're in a lit room. The dead body was under the glow of red lights, so your sanity went up. Hopefully, as the game progress, the mechanic gets a little deeper.

Hey! @patrickklepek, nice episode.
I had the same problem with chrome, and after much investigation, I discovered that the solution was to start chrome as administrator, I think windows upped the security, so its having some read write privilege problems. Hope it works for you too, because I wouldn't wish internet explorer upon my worstest enemy.

@patrickklepek I think the brain meter in the first game was related to being in the dark.

That last game looks a lot like Hyper Light Drifter

The first game looks a bit like Teleglitch. Did you ever play that, Patrick? I think it might fit in the 'daily roguelike stream' format.

@purplespandex

No kidding man that game needs an anti scream button. XD

Yeah. Patrick said that in "some ways it reminded [him] of HLD", but for me I couldn't see anything but an attempt to capitalize on a lot of the praise surrounding HLD's style.

I mean, all they had to do was maybe ditch the poncho thing or go for a different protagonist design altogether in order to distance themselves a bit more from the comparisons that will likely dog it.

That lovecraftian boss enemy was pretty dope though. I really like its design.

@fushichou187: It is the pixel blockyness of everything and the thin legs. Ya I saw the part where Patrick mentioned that after I made the comment.

FYI the issue with Unity webplayer is that Chrome will block plug-ins that use too many resources. You can go into the tools -> task manager (or press shift-escape) and kill the Unity plug-in task. Then if you refresh the Unity plug-in will work.

There is a unity web plug-in only game (battle star galactica online) in their forums they suggest that Firefox is best for the Unity web plugin.

I credit Amnesia and its sanity mechanic as single handedly revitalizing the horror genre for video games.

As for mental illness insensitivity, I don't think so. I mean, I am a mentally ill person myself. I don't take offense if a game handles loss of control and ramping panic as a player mechanic. I'm more offended when a game chooses a specific mental illness to portray and gets it wrong or makes light of it.
