Rhythm Heaven, Live Acoustic Version



Nintendo dropped by the office recently to do a live-action demo of Rhythm Heaven. Here's where our own Evan Narcisse's choral training was put to some good use.

Having played through 99% of the import, I can say that it's even better than this acoustic rendition. I hear they gave free copies of the game to everyone who attended Iwata's GDC keynote. T_T

Origin Story: Where Is My Heart?


As I watched Gus Mastrapa and Ryan Kuo play Where is my Heart? at the IGF Pavilion at GDC, built by Bernhard Schulenburg and friends, I pondered the title. Did it have meaning? Was it purposely cute or melancholy for the sake of blatant self promotion?

I asked Bernhard (who was on hand to explain how this platformer inspired by Lost Vikings worked) how he came up with the title.
