As you may know, I enjoy video games. (I don’t know many people who don’t, actually; a conversation for another time!) That said, one of my great friends James Booth is working on an actual video game, called BiT Evolution. While still up-and-coming, the game intends to celebrate gaming tradition while providing a unique gameplay paradigm that both changes the mold and reminds gamers of the craft’s past. You can check the website out right here to learn more, and to hear from the developer himself.
To those wondering, BiT: Evolution is a platforming adventure game that follows main protagonist BiT through an ever-changing world, with a visual aesthetic that reflects the game’s mission of showcasing the early development of gaming. The team of programmers, artists, and designers working on BiT: Evolution are talented folk – all experienced in their roles – with a great vision worth following. Follow the game’s Twitter account here.
To the left is some of the initial design for the first level, which pays homage to the Atari-era of gaming.
This game, which exudes passion and potential, deserves your attention. I sincerely recommend supporting these fine folks by visiting their website and, when the Kickstarter shows up, donating to the cause.
Until next time!
