    Joel on the day after his birthday A bacterial fungus has turned most of civilization into infected violent not humans I refuse to call them the Z word The Infected force Joel and his daughter from their home Racked with fear guards shoot and kill Joel s daughter as they seek refuge in one of the quarantine zones Fast forward 20 years Joel has become a smuggler and through a series of unfortunate events finds himself tasked with bringing 14 year old Ellie to the renegade group The Fireflies It s believed that she s one of very few people immune to the bacterial infection that has ravaged the world Their year long journey takes them from Boston to Salt Lake City making and losing friends and enemies as they travel The superb acting succeeds in immersing us into this very believable world as Joel and Ellie come face to face with the ugly truth that the surviving humans and not the infected are the true monsters The lengths that both of our heroes go through to not only survive but to complete their task is very telling It becomes clear that in Ellie Joel sees the daughter that he lost which gives him some semblance of the life he once had His love for this surrogate daughter makes life worth living and ultimately changes his perspective on what s most important in this new world y BebBJ LgbaI height 400 Kuumba Creativity Taking what s in our heads and turning it into reality creativity is one of the defining attributes of humanity Our capacity to turn the seemingly ordinary into extraordinary knows no bounds Games like last year s console release of Minecraft have continued to allow our imaginations to roam free We waited 5 years but the Kuumba game of 2013 Grand Theft Auto V Also on most people s game of the year shortlist Rockstar s Grand Theft Auto V is the sandbox game to end all sandbox games It s a story of redemption loss and friendships both old and new The main campaign s narrative tells the story of three lifelong criminals two of whom are just trying to making their way in the world Then there s Trevor Philips Trevor s a psychopath and degenerate but ultimately he just wants to be loved The game follows many GTA mission tropes but culminates in multi staged heists with each one being summer cinema blockbuster worthy While these things make the game great what keeps us coming back is the flexibility GTA gives gamers Yes the story is there but there is no sense of urgency to complete it immediately I ve spent many a session not completing a single mission but just seeing what I can do Skydiving from a chopper into one of the Los Santos resident s pools Do it Body surfing a dirigible It can be done An entire work day can be spent on YouTube watching GTA V stunt videos without seeing duplicates The possibilities are truly endless y hvoD7ehZPcM height 400 Imani Faith It surrounds us and penetrates us It binds the galaxy together That was Obi Wan Kenobi talking specifically about the Force but he could have easily been talking about faith in general Belief in something or someone even in deference to logic is what faith is all about We find strength in our beliefs Our favorite sports teams and our most altruistic superheroes are part of the foundation of our moral compasses What would happen if your heroes turned to villains Would your faith be stirred The Imani game of 2013 Injustice Gods Among Us Developer NetherRealm Studio set out to create a fighting game that takes place in the DC comics universe They were successful in their task but then went the extra mile by creating a story that justifies why it s okay for The Flash to fight Aquaman Like any good bizarro story Injustice Gods Among Us is set in an alternate universe where the Joker has convinced Superman that using a nuclear bomb on Metropolis was the right thing to do killing Lois Lane and their unborn child in the process Instead of showing contrition and being remorseful for his foolhardiness Kal El murders the Joker and decides that it s time for a new world order a Regime In shock and out manned Batman s Insurgency discovers a portal to an alternate universe finding the Justice League and beseeches them for aid The Justice Leaguers are given the opportunity to peer through the looking glass to see the goateed versions of themselves They re given a view of just how corruptible the power they wield truly is It helps to galvanize their belief in one another and to the cause of being a positive example for which humanity can draw y Ew6lQvgfs2I height 400 So there you have it 7 days for 7 principles using 7 games What did you think Did it make sense to you Do you agree with our list Do you think we re full of crap Let us know in the comments below Come say Habari Gani or any colorful phrase of your choosing Read More The SoundShapers Tony Tough October 31 2012 0 Comments The SoundShapers is a series of articles and interviews that spotlight a different member of the Sound Shapes community weekly Check out other posts here In this day and age there aren t many emotionally evocative and poignant stories told in gaming very few spark the imagination or tug at your heartstrings Without sounding too hyperbolic I believe the levels that TonyTough has crafted are some of the most beautiful art I ve had the pleasure to experience in a long time He has figured out ways to tell new and interesting stories and re imagined classics as well Red I first became aware of Tony via his level Red I was struck initially by its screenshot a worried depiction of Red Riding Hood I did a double take because I hadn t really seen anyone make lifelike portraits or images in Sound Shapes before seeing Red So I jumped in and was treated to an awesome show of craftsmanship ingenuity and cleverness While playing the age old tale I observed objects being used in ways I hadn t thought of before and narrative pushed out in a storybook format It really gave me a new understanding of how the game could be used to tell stories and provided a little insight into how Tony s mind worked With its number of plays and likes you can see why it is a community favorite The Ninja part 1 I had expectations of awesomeness going in Tony again stepped his game up and did some really smart things with perspective that I hadn t seen before By making things smaller on the 2D plane it gave them the appearance of being a background element It gave a faux foreground and background to this level fleshing it out even more and adding depth to each panel The story of a ninja warrior getting revenge against a rival family because of a death isn t new but Tony s telling was fresh because he figured out how to implement ANIMATION within the Sound Shapes engine by making a flipbook in his levels My jaw totally hit the ground A stick figured ninja flipping through the air and stabbing his adversary sounds simple but I don t even want to know how he brainstormed that out It shows both how innovative he is and how flexible the engine was It opened up a whole new way players could think about building their levels Nightmare on Church Street I bypassed this level at first but after reading our interview and how glowingly Tony talked of it I had to take a run through Funny enough after playing it it became my favorite Being a huge horror movie fan this level spoke to me Moving from a dark cemetery to a haunted house sets up most of the platforming but use of certain elements that form beds pianos and chandeliers is what impressed me so much Even with the well done callbacks to horror greats like Freddy Kruger Psycho and The Ring the real standout of this level is the music It s thematically on point but also has just enough pulsating beats to keep it funky At the time of this writing a couple of absolute plays have come from Tony Walk in the Park and his Halloween Themed level Trick or Treat I might discuss these more in depth at a later date but I will say that Walk in the Park was a visual and auditory delight It evoked the same feelings I had when I played Journey for the first time Trick or Treat has a special animation in it that still boggles my mind I won t spoil it for you but you must play it Sr Tough also gave us some insight into how he goes about making his levels and other thoughts on the game TSP Give a little background on yourself and why you decided to play Sound Shapes TT I am a manager of a healthcare consulting company focusing on online application website design I have an engineering degree and have always had a passion for music and graphics which is the reason that I have always loved computer games even now over the age of 40 I have always loved sequencers and own a Korg and play mostly by ear Sound Shapes was a perfect fit for me for my love of music and 2D platforming I actually was in the early stages of developing a similar game when I heard Sound Shapes was going to come out and they went above and beyond the game I wanted to develop TSP How do you plan out your levels Music first or art TT I always start off with a song I want to make great music first Once that is done I think of a theme that goes with the song and start to develop the graphics and artwork around the song TSP Do you make your levels on the PS3 or Vita TT Vita only Having a family it is hard to get in front of the TV so most of the stuff I do is late night or lunch hour at work TSP What are your favorite levels that you ve made and why TT My favorite levels I have made are my story levels I like to engross the player with a story so they are excited to see what is next I typically like to throw some curve ball in my story so that there is some sort of surprise either in the story itself RED and my latest level NINJA or in the way you exit the level The Egg and the Beanstalk and Nightmare on Church Street Each of them has a reason why I love them I have a very specific style I used when designed these levels in that I like to make them look 3D even though we are in 2D platforming world This way the level itself is like a puzzle thus making it uncertain in what can you step on and sometimes tricking the visual sense due to the 3D look I haven t seen many have a similar style A good example of that is in my Egg and the Beanstalk level When going down Church Street sometimes you are not sure what you can jump on and what you will fall through It was the first one I created and has a special meaning to me Not to mention the surprise ending I made which was hiding the exit which wasn t seen too much when the game first came out My other favorite is Nightmare on Church Street which I tried to make as if the beanstalk level continued to the right of the beanstalk I love this level for its graphics its eerie theme its adventure to solve its way out of the level and the music I chose for it The NINJA level I just created is a very cool concept I thought of when I made my Descent level I used this approach to make Animation appear on the screen Very cool concept and I haven t seen it done before in Sound Shapes It reminded me of being a kid when I used to use those stapled flip books and draw animation one page at a time TSP What is your favorite level you ve played and why TT My favorite level initially was probably And I to fire by jordanbuster Reason being it was that level that gave me a lot of inspiration to do my levels in such a way as to trick the end user with some sort of surprise It also had an amazing sound track But to be honest I really don t have favorite levels I have favorite artists that I constantly look out for The community for Sound Shapes is unlike any other I have experienced such a great group of people all wanting and willing to help each other I have to give credit to Daftbomb as he is a true inspiration amongst all Sound Shapers not only in the levels he creates but the willingness to help others He really made this experience great for me personally because he pulled together a group of great artists and AMAZINGLY SKILLED PLAYERS such as TheBeejAbides Gezouten Gannon767 DigitalJ88 Jool2306 Sunset Panther Old Poptarts MidguardDragon Vengeful Torture gasssst Milkmaniac and many others which I m going based on memory and sorry if I left any out I list them here so other users out there can find some great levels via their username TSP Any tips or tricks that you ve learned TT Yes many tricks I ve learned But here is my humble advice 1 As I mentioned I always build a great song first many screens long keeping a theme in mind sometimes 2 I love using very very low bass I do this by hitting the Start button using MINOR scale and bring down the Octave to 6 usually I also use VERY SLOW tempo This is a very good tip because I seem to be able to fit more song into a loop Especially since I can use the Sound Shapes drum objects which can record more beats per frame then the standard sequencer loop which only can hold 16 notes 3 I like to use the sound shapes flowers a lot to add notes to a screen before the user even collects coins The nice thing about the flowers is that you can make very long sequences Like 32 notes worth before they repeat Maybe even more And they give the environment a nice sound even if the user doesn t select coins Flowers and other Sound Shape objects can be hidden by Black and White Sound Shapes use that to your advantage A nice technique for what I call 2 for 1 or even 4 for 1 use is placing an object such as a flower near the edge of your screen Any adjacent screens that the flower flows into even by extending its stem will also play that object s sound So you in essence can have the same note or group of notes play on multiple screens as long as they spill over into that screen It can save you some entities if you max out the number of entities on your screen more on that later 4 I like to add a lot of checkpoints and not frustrate my end player Yeah I ll make it tough to find the exit using clues but the playing itself I don t want to piss people off It s about having fun and solving a mystery or enjoying the story with my levels 5 Lots of detail with the background images Using a background color so that the background images pop such as the purple background 6 Never use any sound shapes tools that yell words or sayings or are very loud It usually just annoys everyone 7 Close all gaps and areas around all screens so a player can t slip out of the game and lose the moment 8 After I build my level I go back to my song and cut and paste my screen of notes about one screen above my graphics I want it in Then I can simply hit L1 and select all the notes and drag and drop them down to the correct spot without having to figure out how to create the song again 9 Use the Multiple select option L1 button on Vita and hold it down while selecting stuff to be able to copy and paste multiple items at a time ADVANCED TIPS 1 You can download a previously published file off of the sound shapes server by hitting TRIANGLE just prior to playing it online You can only download levels you create Note if you download your level from the server you will NOT see it in your editor To see it simply pretend to create a new level in your editor then exit out and you will see the original level you downloaded in your list of levels 2 ONE OF THE BIGGEST TIPS I CAN GIVE AND ONE I HAVE SHARED WITH AS MANY PEOPLE AS I CAN IS SAVE FILE MANAGEMENT I realize it s not regarding level design but important nonetheless Early on I lost a ton of work because I got a corrupt save file Doesn t matter how many times you back it up if your file becomes corrupt YOU LOSE EVERYTHING Every level you have stored on your Vita that you created gets wiped out FYI I never use

Zelda like game called Hack N Slash in which the main game mechanic is hacking all the variables of the objects in the world Want to make a block puzzle easier Change its push value Want to get rid of a pesky enemy Change its variable to friendly as opposed to aggressive I had no idea what to make of it until I saw it in action take a look below I remember the days of Game Genies and code books The

be really interesting to experience especially recalling the heaviness of the main game Riley even in the short clip feels like she has a command of herself in a way that is way beyond her years and should compliment Ellie s already well established character Anyone who has played the The Last Of Us knows
