Mutazione from Die Gute Fabrik will be free on the Epic Store March 12-19

Update: Hmmm.. I honestly don't know about the game. I guess it's a acquired taste and simply not for me! Award nominations and steam players who bought it seems happy. So that's great! :)
Personally after about 9 minutes in I didn't feel like continuing (And it's completely unfair grounds for judging the entire production. Which I am not). The aesthetics is sort of nice in it's own quirky way. But honestly I was just super bored. :blush Characters and dialog was just not enough to keep me interested. I'll take (as recently played comparable production) Forgotton Anne over this any day. Even with all it's troublesome issues.
But give Mutazione a shot while it's free and see if it's a match for you. A large plus for controller support in an adventure game! yay!

And a bit more from LEGO Super Mario reveal.
I know a few people who are working/have worked on the product.
Personally not really sold here. But the kiddo might be ;). Looks like 15 minutes of gimmicky fun before hitting the dust shelf. Like Nintendo LABO.
Also looks like there will be smashed LEGO pieces all over the place from basic use when the kiddos gets theirs hands on this.
And "Squario" doesn't look that hot. :|

Broadly people on the internet just want proper Mario minifigs it seems.
All in all it doesn't look like a super home run. But I'm sure it will do pretty fine in sales.
Let's see how it pans out! And maybe it is actually genuinely fun?!

LEGO Builder's Journey
Out on Apple Arcade

I missed the DK release from december last year. From the LEGO owned company Light Brick Studios in Copenhagen.

It looks very pretty puzzler! Let's hope it makes it to more platforms.

Amplify Occlusion is now free on GitHub. It has been deprecated on the Asset Store
We used it in Broken Lines. Nice results! Latest versions looks even better. Looks far superior to Unity's built in AO solutions.

I'm not sure if it works with the newer rendering pipelines (URP (formerly LWRP) and the HDRP) though. Unity's own AO doesn't even work in 2019 or 2020.1 beta last time I checked. Unity honestly feels like performing open heart surgery with a spoon and a rubber hammer at the moment. :|
But will test it out!

Figment from Aalborg based Bedtime Digital Games will be free for a limited time on the Epic Store. So get ready and grab it when and while you can!

I don't know how the deal with Epic is structured by the way. If developers are compensated with a fixed fee or a per download/account add compensation?
Anybody who can enlighten us?



March 26 - Apr 2

The Adventures of Gorm from Ree Animation now as a free playable demo.

I'll give it a run before I'm off to bed. :)
Update: Must play with a controller. It's VERY early days (3'ish years in development). Lots of bugs and unfinished things. But yeah it's my kind game type. It shows early promise! It'll probably be a whole lot of years before (if) it releases. Hope so! :)


Ronnie also has a Patreon account if you'd like to support the developer.

3dsmax 2021 new features... not the most impressive release from a gamedev perspective.


However some of the stuff (Currently in beta) they are working on seems to cater a it bit more. AI based unwrapping is certainly interesting.
