Synesthesia explained with the lovely Gordon Midwood


3:00 PM on 01.03.2013



Last week's Sup, Holmes? (now available on iTunes) was mired by multiple technical difficulties, but we still had a fine time of it. Did you know that if you create a game in your spare time and it wins an IGF award, you may be able to get the UK's Channel 4 to help finance a PSN game about a shark made of paper? I sure didn't!

Gordon also teased the release of Derrick the Deathfin on another platform for 2013, talked about how he hates steam (the form of water, not the online game distribution service), his plans for a new rhythm game, and a lot more. He also taught me all about synesthesia -- the art of evoking a visual image with a sound, or vice versa. It was with this goal in mind that he created Lilt Line, the game that put him on the map. Speaking of Lilt Line, now that dub step is so fashionable, I wonder how the game would do on the PS Vita and 3DS eShop? Make it happen, Gaijin Games!

Thanks again to Gordon for sharing his insight and amazing sense of humor to the program.Tune in this Sunday at 1pm PST/4pm EST when we welcome Beau Blyth, creator of Samurai Gunn and LA Death Disk to the show. If you like killing your friends in videogames, then Beau is a guy you should get to know.

How to correctly play Crypt of the NecroDancer

I've been playing Crypt of the NecroDancer, and now I fancy myself a pretty amazing player. The game hits Steam's Early Access program in just two days, and so I figured I'd impart my wisdom unto any new players who may be out there by making a hawt tipz video.more
