PEAKS board game
Peaks is a board game of skill and luck for 2 players where the objective is to match black and white sides of triangles
before the other player. However only 2 of the triangles sides are visible at any one time leaving an air of mystery
to other side. Players take turns to roll a dice which gives them an amount of points to spend per turn.
A list of moves for varying costs are used during the players turn, moves include; turning, swapping, stealing triangles etc.
PlayHead is a puzzle platformer which uses a video player interface to control the flow of time.
There are a lot of puzzle ideas to explore here.
Early web prototype available here:
Cross stitch animation tests. We are working on an editor.
Dislectek is a unity plugin which allows developers to quickly and easily add Dyslexic friendly text to speech options to their game.
For years dyslexic players have been ignored but their struggles are real. It's estimated that as many as 1 in 5 people are dyslexic.
This means that if you have lengthy dialogue, tutorial text, hidden notes or item descriptions 20 % of your potential audience may just
skip that content.
OUT NOW to the Unity asset store and itchio for Windows, Mac, iOS and Android.
