Been following this guy and his team for quite sometime now. Although I can barely understand anything he is saying in this video, I absolutely love the sounds and visuals.
Key Master, the story of Korey Kidler. An average teenager who suddenly receives keys to a mysterious mansion. So far the editing process is going quite well. Since I’ve improved in my drawing skills during the time, I decided to redo some of the pages to keep the artwork consistent with where I’m at now. The first book story is completely done, It’s just implementing certain scenes and updating some of the lead characters. Right now Korey and miss Nancy are exploring the mansion when they start to notice a few strange occurrences taking place. This project is definitely not easy but I’m glad that I’m finally in the last stages of completion. I think I even found a good track that helps describe the sense of accomplishment I’m feeling right now.
I’ll definitely have some more previews and updates very soon. Stay tuned!
Artists are at times stereotyped as stuck up, self absorbed, stubborn to their ways, people. It’s sad sometimes because there are talented individuals who are tagged with these ignorant titles before viewers actually get to know them. In all honesty, I kinda forgot where this post was going and how it is related to the image I created…. (shrugs* told you I wasn’t really good at this blogging thing.) Anywho, it’s not that artists do not care…it’s more so, if you’re not willing to try to view their philosophy and theories from their point of view, then why should they care about yours?
The hommie Negashi Armada a.k.a Blunt Fang (who was a part of my favorite indie group Supreeme Supreeme) has always been one of my favorite indie artist in the game. When the group decided to separate, Armada now Blut Fang, continued his poetry touring the states on a solo path. This is my throwback jam of the day, Lesbianic Blunt featuring Fat Tony. I enjoy the laid back humor yet seriousness in these rhymes… very V.illionaire steezy.
This GGR (Gotham Game Review) will be on Jade Cocoon: Story of Tamamayu which was released in 1998 for the Sony Playstation by Crave Entertainment & developed by Japanese programers Genki. Role playing games are absolutely my favorite style of video games and for it’s time, Jade Cocoon was an excellent play. If you enjoy games like Pokemon, Digimon, Zelda and Final Fantasy, Jade Cocoon is like a combination of all with a tribal like feel.
The story starts with you playing as the lead protagonist, Levant, who is the son of a great Cocoon Master. A Cocoon Master is one who can capture, raise and train wild bug-monster like creatures to assist and protect the village. Each minion is composed of an element (Wind, Earth, Water and Fire) and can be fused with other minions to create new creatures. In order to become a cocoon master he must first marry a Na’gi woman and then he can begin his Cocoon journey. The village is attacked by demons known as Onibubu, which cause many of the villagers to fall into a deep coma and here the game play starts.
For it’s time, the overall art direction and graphics are superb. The game uses pre-rendered backgrounds along with 3D polygon graphics to tell the story. I also appreciate the Japanese manga style art design used for the character profiles. The vibrant colorful Tribal like scenery is done really well with a fantasy jungle world that makes the story really come to life. At times the graphics especially the character faces can look kind of low res and blocky but given it’s time and 32-bit graphic limit, the game is executed quite well. The story line is enjoyable and keeps you anticipating the next outcome of the adventure. Unlike other RPG’s of it’s time, the game incorporates individual voice overs for all lead characters. If you enjoy playing classic RPG’s then Jade Cocoon is definitely one to add to the collection.
