Monochroma is the first title by Istanbul-based Nowhere Studios (thanks Wikipedia!) and despite it’s humble origins, the developers had some fairly lofty goals for the game. On the Steam page, one of the early bug updates says that they (Nowhere) want Monochroma to be considered as one of the best platformers of all time. Meanwhile on their official website they are no less reserved as they describe their game as a “deeply visual, intellectual and emotional experience”. So if it sounds to you like these guys are aiming high, then you would definitely be very right about that. Whether they’ve succeeded is, of course, an entirely different matter.
It is that time of week where once again I delve into the grim and gritty business of video game news. It’s a cut-throat world out there, a game eat game world. A world in which only the fittest and most awesome games survive. And Call of Duty of course (OOoooh! ZING!). But seriously, it’s not really that bad (well not for everyone) and we’ve got some pretty interesting bits and pieces of news to regale you with today. Also I want to make it clear that the above video is indeed sort of relevant to this post as you shall find out later (if you read through this!) So, what’s new Gamers?
