Being as psyched as I am for Hover I had to go play Fusty's first game, The Secret of Space Octopuses. I was pleasantly surprised. It reminded of old school ps1 platformers like Wild 9 and Tomba. It's funny has a great art style, and the box mechanics are fun and keep you thinking where you can use one type or the other. But the thing I was really impressed by was Cédric Menendez's soundtrack. It makes me very excited to see how he and Hideki Naganuma may collaborate and mesh. I started playing on my phone but I am going to start over on my tablet so I can really enjoy the art. If anyone needs a fun game to hold them over till the alpha I would recommend checking it out. Links below.

iOS:

And don't forget to check out the OST on Soundcloud

https://soundcloud.c...space-octopuses

 

So did anyone else do the same as me and went and played this to see what a Fusty game gan look like?

Maybe some of you had played it beforehand?

Or do you just think all mobile games are garbage?

I looked at it but have never played. I forgot that I recently got a smartphone so I will have to give it a shot.

I tried it out, but i just don't like on screen tap controls so I did not play for long. I like the idea and the art style though.

Also, Secret of Space Octopuses and its obsession with boxes gave us ... the secubox!

 

Don't forget to vote for it on Steam Greenlight, so I can try it out with a real controller!

Cool, I didn't know about that campaign, I would love to see the game on steam. And I did notice some similarities such as the 2D art on the walls and of course the all the boxes. Mostly the Hover Box and the Juke Box struck me as something very 'proto-hover'.

Got it when I learned it's by the same team, and it's pretty fun. Sort of reminds me of Trine, where you can make boxes to solve puzzles with the wizard. 


If you die, don't come crying to me about it.

Any progress on the Steam Greenlight? Not sure how the program works exactly but this game deserves to be on Steam. It might even help promote the Hover Steam Alpha when it releases.

I doubt that there is a ready-to-go pc-version of this game. So actually releasing it might mean taking a break from Hover, which I suspect Fusty doesn't want to do right now.

 

But yea, these days all cheap crap imaginable gets greenlit. The poor games that started back when it was hard to get greenlit are buried under so much newer stuff that they have a hard time getting anywhere.

 

EDIT: My bad. The game actually is greenlit now. When did that happen?

I agree of course that Hover is priority but it is worth mentioning for down the road. You know, ''Buy the Hover Alpha and get Space Octopuses half off!". Something like that to help promote the dev team.

Tell the team not to issue death threats against Gabe Newell for waiting so long until pressing the button. I heard that doesn't go over too well :P

I think the only person here we'd have to warn not to do something like that is Xan.  ;)
