Overview of all the great games which were exhibited onsite at the Game Dev Days Graz 2018.
Kemono Heroes - Daniel Pellicer Garcia
Join 3 friends in an arcade-platformer game like those you used to play in the arcade rooms. Every character has different abilities and there are different weapons to unlock and upgrade. You’ll also fight giant monsters at the end of each world, beat them and reach the final boss before the time goes up and the curse becomes permanent!
Subwords - Klemens Strasser
Subwords is an exciting mix between a trivia and a word game. Words are split into fragments and you have to put them back together as fast as possible. The words in every level are bound to a certain topic, so you need to have knowledge about the topic to succeed. The topics range from general knowledge like animals and fruits to more specific fields of study like European countries, classical composers and greek mythology.
With over 25 topics, the ability to get hints and to change language, Subwords will help you to improve your knowledge, your spelling skills and may even help you train a foreign language.
Crazy Goose Run - Richard Puhr
Crazy Goose Run is an endless runner in which you are playing as a skiing goose and must escape from a hungry polar bear closely behind you. If you steer, your fluffy but fierce enemy will follow your directions. Snowpiles can slow yourself down, but also the bear. You should try to avoid the bear running into icy passages as it speeds him up and brings him closer to you, the goose, and you might end up as X-Mas dinner.
Pixel Soldier - Anton (Accidently Awesome)
Pixel Soldier is a fast-paced game about fighting frantic bosses, while quickly dodging their attacks. Disregard gravity while walking on walls and jumping from one side of the room to another. With a minimalist yet dynamic 4-color aesthetic that doesn't distract from the pure arcade action gameplay.
All You Can Eat - Aleksandar (Gamechuck)
All You Can Eat is a unique interactive comic that blends the mechanics of playing a game seamlessly with the experience of reading a comic. In the game you take control of a man so lazy he decided to quit his job and just spend his life inside an All-you-can-eat diner.
Stage Balls - Laurens
Challenge your reaction, precision and strategy with Stage Balls. Be fast enough to match the balls of the same color as they fall.
game over - Christof Ressi
'game over' is a simple tile based 2D game engine for prototyping/developing small experimental games, e.g. for art installations or performances, with a strong focus on interactive and procedural audio capabilities. It can be scripted in realtime (also over network) and runs smoothly on small platforms like the Raspberry Pi.
VR Giants - Wolfgang Tschauko
VR Giants is a local multi player coop VR game that makes use of one player’s body to extend the level for the other player to explore. The big player is called Goliath and is controlled with a VR set. David is the small player and is controlled with a gamepad.
Goliath’s body can be used by David to cross abysses or reach higher platforms. David is tiny and is highly vulnerable to fire, spikes and other dangers. Goliath must protect David so that he can collect coins and keys that lead both players to freedom. - https://vrgiantsgame.com/vr-giants-2018-gallery/
