Catburger Game...

Is an experimental indie video game Beau Blyth and I created in two weeks.
Basically you build your own catburger by competing another catburger. The more food your catburger eats, the bigger it becomes and the slower it gets. The catburger which gets the frist 10 ingredients wins.
The music in the game is Beau playing banjo! There's also a button he made which you can press your kitty and make it meow! (be gentle, or your cat might throw up all the food at you in the end.)

Below is a video from the opening night of the Game Over show:

Game developed and programed by Beau Blyth.
You can downlload a demo to play at home with friends from Beau's site (curretly PC only) or stop by GR2! Check out the show, buy some art, books and prints. There're 2 arcade machines set up for multiplayers.

Game Over 2012 at Giant Robot / Video Game Themed Art Show

Together we can play Mario's Picross "3D"

I've been so addicted to Picross 3D recently. Super fun game that I couldn't put it down! I've solved around 122 puzzles so far in the last two weeks. Picross theme art was the first thing in my mind to make for this year's Game Over at GR2.

I was pretty excited about this year's event. Besides making an art piece, I also worked on an indie video game. I team up with game designer/programmer (also a very talented self-taught artist!) Beau Blyth to creat a new game for the Art X Game series collective. Even tho we only had two weeks to work on it. It was a pretty special and great experience. I will post more about the game in the next post.

Here is the art piece I made for the show:

Handcut bits made from the leftover wood I collected after frames and panels making.
Wood is a special and important nature resource and material, please do not waste wood or papers. Always save scrap wood for later use, they will be super useful, we never know.
