Crayon Physics Indie Game Released Today and 9 Theatrical Movie and Short Film

Thursday, January 8th, 2009



I wanted to let you guys know that a great indie game came out today called Crayon Physics. Crayon Physics was created by one-man developer Petri Purho of Kloonigames. He is famous for developing games on his own in the very tight deadline of one month. I saw him give a talk at GDC 2007 and he showed off a lot of his indie games that are available for free download. They were very simple games that were fascinating and a lot of them could have easily been expanded into full games if given more time. Well he has done just that with Crayon Physics. The game is a much larger project than the usual fare from Kloonigames and will set you back $20. Check out the videos of the gameplay.

If you like the soundtrack of Crayon Physics it is available for free download.

On another note I was talking with a co-worker and we started to discuss what books or movies would make a great game. He told me about Shane Acker’s 9. 9 is a short film that was getting a full length theatrical release and is being produced by Tim Burton.

This is the original award winning short film.

Does that beg for a game or what?

2 Months: Star Wars Vs. Star Trek, Super Mario Level Mod and Flash Game Sonny

Thursday, December 18th, 2008



So today marks the second month since the resurgence of LimitlessUnits.com. I continue to enjoy writing and working on the website and I am learning something new almost daily by doing so. You can look forward to a lot more from LimitlessUnits.com in the next month. Over the next week or so I’ll be traveling to visit family and the site may not be updated as often, but I’ll continue writing on the trip and hopefully build up a backlog in which to draw from. For now I’ve got some movies and a couple of flash games that you shouldn’t miss.

I know this is a little older, but if there’s a chance you haven’t see it yet, it’s pretty awesome.

Star Wars Versus Star Trek

This is another old video, but again if you haven’t seen it it’s great. The commentary by the player is the best. This is a great showcase for using the player’s expectations against them and what not to do in game design taken to the extreme.

As promised I bring you one of the best flash games I’ve ever played and one that is so intentionally bad it wraps back around on the scale. The first one is Sonny, a surprisingly deep flash RPG where you play as a super zombie, who has lost his memory. The best part about Sonny is that it is free. So what have you got to lose?

Sonny Free Flash RPG Game

This is the intentionally bad flash game. The game is called The Worst Game Ever and its tag line is “where spare time goes to die.”

My Student Films 2: EverQuest Documentary and Guilty Gear Isuka Trailer

Saturday, December 6th, 2008



As promised in my first “My Student Films” entry here are some more of my student films.

This EverQuest documentary was created about a friend of mine a number of years ago. This video was originally shot right after the release of the first expansion for EverQuest, Ruins of Kunark, which places it around September of 2000. He is a charismatic and very intelligent guy (these qualities come across on the screen), who dropped out of high school due to his addiction to the MMORPG Everquest. Please forgive the awful camera work. This was one of my first videos that I had ever shot. I learned a lot in its creation.

This is a video that I worked on along with a few others while at Sammy Studios for the Guilty Gear Isuka game for the PS2.

My Student Films

Friday, November 14th, 2008



I have never really uploaded any videos to youtube before. So I decided to dig up some of the videos I made during film school a number of years back and set about uploading.

Lifted
Lifted is a car chase digital video shot with a few friends of mine over the course of a few weekends. It almost serves as a Ford commercial with both a Ford Focus as well as a Ford Mustang participating. The shoot took place on the freeways and streets of San Diego. Enjoy!

Tripod
Tripod is a group student film that we made over a few days of shooting. It was shot on 16mm film and was an attempt at telling an entire story from the perspective of feet.

I’ve got a few other self-made videos I can share still so I’ll occasionally upload some more and post them here in the future.
