The You Testament is Matt Dickie's final game, end of a nearly ten year career of one individual who does all the programming, art, and design of all of his games, and has produced them with rapid proficiency. This title takes all the lessons he's learned about flow and fun, and then distorts them in order to achieve something altogether more meaningful.
The You Testament has you playing a historically unknown disciple of Jesus the Christ.
Dogs in the Vineyard
Tabletop Tuesdays: No Country For Old-School Gamers
|Submitted by John Mc on Tue, 08/12/2008 - 03:14.|
Out on the frontier, a group of religious pioneers struggles to make lives for themselves. The Faith faces freezing winters and blazing summers, but the greatest threat to their survival comes from within. You play one of God’s Watchdogs, tasked with holding the faith together in the face of sin, heresy, and demonic influence. The Dogs ride from town to town rooting out pridefullness and false doctrine, exorcising demons, dispensing justice, and keeping the Faith together. Their word is both law and gospel, but with ultimate authority comes ultimate responsibility.
Ze Frank's Life Games
Games as Epigrams
|Submitted by costik on Thu, 07/17/2008 - 00:57.|
On occasion, I've referred to five-minute games that have an emotional impact (like The Crossing) as the gaming equivalent of tone poems; these games from Ze Frank are more like quips or epigrams -- five second games with a bit of a sting. You kind of have to play all three to get the point.
