MODSORK Morphs into Mobile MMOG

You may have been wondering why the game’s not out yet. I’m happy that I can finally reveal the real reason: I’m modifying MODSORK into a massive multiplayer online game for mobile devices (MODMOBMMOG)!

Mock Up of MODMOBMMOG, or: MOCKMODMOBMMOG


This will take a moment, but it’s for the best: “This needs online multiplayer if you want it to sell”, an experienced 18-year-old intern at a publisher told me at a game conference last year after he had seen and thoroughly analyzed the game for two minutes. That got me thinking. After all, the game is all about doing things with two hands. Now imagine how much fun it will be when instead of one person with a single pair of hands there’s dozens of players with hundreds of hands controlling the game!

Taking this concept to mobile was just the logical final step because why not. It will be so great, so great, believe me. So please just bear with me a little longer as I make these small changes. After all, the beauty of indie games is their artistic freedom to change course mid-project, right? Thank you for your patience and support! 🙂

MODSORK at Gamescom’s Indie Arena Booth

The world’s biggest game show is right around the corner and MODSORK will be part of it! 🙂 Thanks to the lovely folks from Indie Arena indie developers from 18 countries will share a cozy megabooth in hall 10.1, booth A-031.  For now, here’s the teaser trailer:

Current MODSORK Champion plays live on Twitch

Tonight at around 10:30 p.m. CET  Seldell will play the current prototype on Twitch.
 
Watch him progress into the late, unbalanced stages of the demo where frenemy waves have names like “DeathWave” and “AnythingGoesWave” and when multipliers can’t go any higher because I never expected anyone to get this far in the demo version! 😀
 
The stream is in french and will likely feature other cool indie games, too. It will be rebroadcast ( in case you miss it ).

Anniversary: Fantasy Basel; Other News

It’s hard to believe it’s already been a year since the first time MODSORK was playable at a public event, last year’s Fantasy Basel. Of course I’ll also participate in this year’s edition of the event next week to celebrate this anniversary. Yay! 🙂

It would be great to meet you there (again)! Once more there’s an exciting line-up of Swiss indie games, so make sure to check out our corner in hall 1.1.

In other news, I’m currently working on an exciting new power-up system as well as more fundamental changes that will allow me to create new game modes and music more efficiently.  If all goes well, the basics of the new power-up system will be ready for Stunfest in Rennes (FR) later this month.
