This isn’t Aquaria-related, (or the big announcement, that’s still coming!) but a side project of mine called Célu is going to be part of the Gamma 256 event happening in Montreal today. If you’re in the Montreal area, and you’re reading this blog right now, and you’re not already going (haha) - you should go check it out! Also, a bunch of people that worked on testing/improving Aquaria will be there! (Steve Swink, Daniel-D. “Guert” Guertin, Brandon McCartin and Noah Decter-Jackson [who worked on the game a bit back in the stone ages!])
Basically its a showcase for games made with 256×256 resolution or lower and use the XBOX360 controller. You can check out the full list of featured games on TIGSource.
I’ve been wanting to make a game partly inspired by Le Petit Prince for a while. Célu is kind of like that, but its not all that I wanted it to be yet. I’m hoping that once Aquaria is done I’ll be able to go back and flesh it out a bit. (I’ve only been able to spend ~4 days work on it over a couple months so far)
It also has music by yours truly! You can grab the music in MP3 format here.
