Intermissions


HardyDev’s first ever interviewee Adam Kuczek (that I talked to back in 2009) is sadly to busy working with the Wachowskis (on Cloud Atlas and Jupiter Ascending) to finish his own cyberpunk adventure game Butterfly. Nevertheless, he decided to create a gallery of artworks related to the world and story he envisioned. Have a look! (New images are regularly added)

Sorry, that you had to wait a few days longer for the results, but the good news is we added an additional copy of The Journey Down to the pool of prizes. So there are FIVE lucky people who’ll get their hands on them. And their names are:

Speaking of making games, above is a really awesome Making OF for a 2010 game By the Numbers by a man called AJA. I wanted to archivize this video for quite a while – most impressive both in terms of the tech developed on camera in a week, as well as in terms of the creator’s humor after several days without sleep.
