Last night I went to the Playcrafting NYC March Demo night. I got to meet quite a few people including the creators of several games recently released and currently in development. All of the games were awesome, and it was really nice to meet the people who made them. I think my favorite of the night was the card game: Bycatch.
A game about remaining invisible to both yourself and to your predators. The game has an awesome camouflage mechanic, dynamic difficulty, branching paths, and generative soundscapes.
A card game that employs your phone's camera for surveillance, Bycatch sees each player control a nation on the hunt for suspected terrorists. Players try to locate suspects hiding abroad using drone surveillance, and eliminate them with drone strikes. Meanwhile, they must shelter their citizens from the attacks of their opponents.
A short first-person adventure game and takes place in one giant area with multiple nooks, crannies, and even some hidden passages. Due to being circuitous, the game can be explored from any direction at any pace.
Gay Fighter Supreme -
A satirical take on 2D sprite-based fighting games from the 90s, Gay Fighter Supreme features character types from within the LGBT community. Fight your way through foes to be crowned supreme! The only colors in this rainbow are black and blue.
Bunny Love -
An endless runner that takes place in Bunny World, which has been ravaged by the evil wolf gang. Only two bunnies survived, Bun Bun and Twitch. It’s their job to repopulate the world with bunnies using the power of love. However, the wolf gang is hot on their tails. Do you have what it takes to protect them on their journey to Carrotopia?
All in all, I had a great time at the Playcrafting Demo Night, and I am currently thinking about attending another either the April Demo Night or the April Spring Expo.
I'm a Game Designer and Developer. I will be posting about my progress on different projects and about events I attend.
