    A game about fluids with a liquid dubstep soundtrack? Am I imagining things or is that a next-level pun? This game seems really cool.

    I used to work with one of the producers of the Harry Potter Quidditch game. That was 2011, so 7 years after that video and 6 years ago. Funny thing seeing someone you knew pop up in a Demo Derby.

    @zandravandra: That's great. Ludum Dare has a system that's something like that. It favors exposing games by people who have rated others games a lot and have few ratings themselves. Itch even has a p...

  • Frump posted a message on the post Endurance Run: Shenmue - Part 26.

    At the beginning I was definitely stunned and on the "wow this game is awful" train. By the end though, I grew to love this tiny world with its wooden, paper thin, sub-anime characters and loose cours...

    @johnymyko: I did, I searched a bunch. Most were sans-serif. The only commonality I noticed was that fantasy themed games specifically use a lot of serif fonts. I think that's the key.In terms of font...

  • Frump posted a message in the forum topic Japanese use of Serif Fonts. on the General Discussion board

    Do you have any specific examples? I definitely haven't noticed any overuse of serif fonts for roman characters. Looking at many japanese and japanese localized games I own they use sans-serif just as...

  • Frump posted a message in the forum topic What do you want to see in future open world games?. on the General Discussion board

    Less open worlds in general unless it's really core to the design and style of the game. You can have expansive game environments without being an open world of mostly pointless empty space. Tons of...

  • Frump posted a message in the forum topic Ranking of Zeldas. on the The Legend of Zelda board

    Considering that I haven't gotten anything done by myself in previous Giant ROMs I'm going to just focus on doing some art. If anyone wants to team up, I primarily do 3d art and can hack it with pixel...

  • Frump posted a message on the post Quick Look: Song of the Deep.

    It occurs to me I haven't played an Insomniac game since the Spyro series on PS1. Since then nothing they've made appealed to me very much. This game doesn't seem like any exception.Also as a Canadian...
