   The Bridge Beautiful Indie Puzzle Game
By Mahesh Pagar
Thursday, Aug 20, 2015 11:28



If you love puzzle games, The Bridge will blow your mind. It's artistic and it really explores its gravity defying theme the best anyone could have. The artwork of The Bridge and its dark music, keeps complementing each other.

The Bridge is Indie Game, its artwork is inspired from great dutch artist, M.C.Escher who is famous for mathematically inspired woodcuts, lithographs, andmezzotints. Which feature impossible constructions, explorations of infinity, architecture, and tessellations.

For The Bridge, Mario Castaneda has designed all of its artwork. It's designed and developed by Ty TaylorHe says, "I had a clear vision in that  I wanted the entire game to look and feel like you were inside of an M. C. Escher drawing. I felt that having authentic visuals in Escher's classic monochromatic style was the only way to truly marry the impossible architecture that comprises the puzzles in The Bridge with the surreal visual aesthetics."

The lead character looks like M. C. Escher too. Mario has done a phenomenal job with the visuals, the darker look grows you. You can clearly see that in its gameplay.

The Bridge definitely has this mysterious, dark and unsettling look overall. The Puzzle has no 'jump button' for the lead character, you have to find a way by tilting the world and moving the character around.

The Bridge has won numerous awards. 

It was released on steam in 2013. It's available on following platforms too. Microsoft Windows, Amazon App Store, Xbox 360, Xbox One, Wii U.

And 2 days ago, The Bridge got available for PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, and PlayStation Vita.

Aaron Blaise breaks down his approach to tackling a complex shot. He's talking about a hand-drawn shot, but this is essentially the same thing referred to as the "layered approach" in CG animation.

Looks like some 2D animators up at Ottawa's Mercury Filmworks (makers of the likewise well-animated Jake and the Never Land Pirates) are living the dream!

   Journey Beautiful Animated Short

travelled in Australia and created this beautiful short as a reflection of that journey.

Journey animation short is unique, fresh and leaves you wanting more. The live action visuals and animation blend beautifully. Most of the compositions look very cleverly planned. The thing I liked most is, you still somehow connect with the character. Background music definitely succeeds in building the intentional feeling of awe.

The overall concept of Journey so good, I would love to see full-feature in this style. It's really that good!
