  1. Last year during the Tokyo Game Show, art directors Baiyon of PixelJunk Eden and Dan Paladin of Castle Crashers met for a brief discussion of their artistic influences. As it turned out, they had a mutual fascination with the Kunio-kun series, best known for the super deformed characters in River City Ransom and Super Dodge Ball. Now they find themselves in the similar circumstance of being far along into production of an ambitious, experimental title. PixelJunk Lifelike and Battleblock Theater have yet to confirm release windows, but here we get an early indication of what to expect.

    Welcome to Nobuooo.com's game-inspired Kickstarter initiative.

    I'm Jeriaska, the founder of the videogame music news message board. Recently I had the chance to film a series of interviews with prominent game designers and composers in Japan. The purpose of this Kickstarter project is to create from this footage a DVD series whose subject is the creative context of videogame music.

    Outside of the interviews, this project has also entailed filming live chip music performances for Nullsleep's Collapsed Desires tour for a separate DVD. In addition, Spanish developer Locomalito is working with our site to create for their game Hydorah a 2-disc CD soundtrack and remix album.

    You can follow our progress at the below address:

  4. Video artist Raquel Meyers debuted her independent game THE GREAT ADVENTURE OF WH-T-V-R earlier this year in Berlin. A collaboration with multimedia designer Bram van der Poel, the experimental game comments on the medium by introducing players to environments whose goals don't add up. Finding the discs and feeding the dogs never quite leads anywhere and inevitably defeat comes at the hands of the great monster of “W-RKC-MPL-T-.”

    In the above video Raquel VJs for Tokyo-based chiptune musician Saitone of VORC Records. The performance of "Thriller 8-bit Tribute" took place at this year's Tokyo Blip Festival. A DVD compilation of the visual artist's, titled "Useless, Yet Crucial," is planned for release in early 2011.

  5. On Sunday Alex Neuse, CEO of Gaijin Games, joined a panel called Project Next with Jonathan Blow (Braid) and Ian Bogost (A Slow Year). The sneak peek given by the company was of Laserlife, a conceptual game project departing from the retro sprite graphics of the Bit.Trip series.
