Mini review on the Indie Game Magazine

Posted in reviews on January 28, 2011 by glpeas

The Indie Game Magazine have done a mini review, and they generally liked it, saying that the ‘…puzzle gameplay feels fresh…’. They also had some criticsm, they weren’t too keen on the simple graphics and sound, but they do round off by saying that the game is definitely worth trying.

Steven Hurdle reviews BlindGiRl

Posted in reviews on January 13, 2011 by glpeas

Steven Hurdle has undertaken the admirable mission to buy and try an indie game from the Xbox Indie Game Marketplace every day. His only criteria are that the game must be good, and it must NOT be in the top 50 download chart. He’s going to keep going until he runs out of games.

Today, he has reached his 64th game, which is BlindGiRl. He liked it a lot, saying that it ‘…stands out as a title with plenty of innovation..’.

Read the full review, and be sure to support Steven’s quest to give the indie channel some much needed promotion.

The art of BlindGiRl

Posted in development info on December 15, 2010 by glpeas

BlindGiRl’s visuals combine the procedurally generated graphics of wave propagation and echolocation with the original, hand drawn illustrations of Elly Walton.

Elly is an established illustrator working with UK & overseas clients including The Guardian, The Independent, The Times, The Big Issue, FHM, PC Pro, Macformat, and Sky amongst many others.  Her unique and wonderful style was one that we really liked and thought would fit the BlindGiRl project perfectly.
