It’s so close! PARTY ON THE 19TH is this Thursday!! Remember how we said there would be more announcements? We don’t know if you saw, but we announced a couple of musical guests. Our friends Shark? and DJ Big Black Poodle will be performing, yay!! Plus we confirmed Clement Shimizu’s amazing 3D Pac-Man, which was previously shown at the Babycastles Summit, will also be on display for the night. This is all so good!! There might be more news too, and we’ll let you know when we know. 
So this is clearly shaping up to be a really good time. We’re already asking for your help via your attendance, but we’re hoping some of you out there will be willing to help us a little more. We need some volunteers to help us get the venue ready for the party! If you have a couple hours you could donate to us we’d really appreciate it. Here’s what we need: 

Tuesday, we are looking for help picking up cabinets from NYU Magnet Center and The Silent Barn, then setting up cabinets, hardware, and a donations center in the space.
Wednesday, we are continuing the setup, decorations, and building a crazy skateboard lazy suzan for Thu Tran’s dinner party.
Thursday, we are looking for help with decorating, last minute details, door security, bartending, fundraising, and a generous few to help tear down the installation after the event.

If this sounds like something you could do, we’ve created a volunteer sign-up schedule so folks like you can and their names with the roll they’d like to take on. The entire Babycastles team will be working hard to get this all assembled, and any additional hands will be seriously appreciated.
Love and bowties!! ʕ•ᴥ•ʔ ʕ•ᴥ•ʔ

Do you know about PARTY ON THE 19TH yet? We may have mentioned it before….

Yesterday Syed went to scope out the space where we’ll be hosting PARTY ON THE 19TH, our upcoming party to support our Babycastles Gallery fundraising effort. As you can see, it’s really big and kind of cool looking. It also might remind you of the Showpaper Gallery space (that’s on purpose). Above is a video that Syed took to show the other Babycastles team members what the space looked like but we thought you might want to see too! We’re of course going to fill it up with cabinets and stuffed animals and weird stuff, but a look at what it’s like “before” is pretty cool too.

PARTY ON THE 19TH is going to be broken up into two segments. First we’re going to host a "dinner" (it’s giant hors d’oeuvrs so that’s kind of like dinner but also kind of not but still cool!) thanks to the generous time and energy of our friend Thu Tran. This is our first time doing something like this and we’re really hoping this is something you guys will be into. If you want to come to the dinner, it’s a $35 admission price but that gets you into the cool party that comes afterwards! If you’ve already signed up to become a Babycastles Gallery Member it’s only $25 for you! We hope you’ll be willing to try something new with us.  

PARTY ON THE 19TH is slightly a work in progress, and we may be releasing more details about what to expect as we get closer and closer to the night of the event. So keep your eyes here, on our Twitter, and on our newsletter for more info about what’s to come. (This is going to be really great you guys -EMi)

Woah hey, check it out we totally have a Tumblr!
Some of you may remember that we used to use this space for Babycastles staff to talk about cool games that they wanted to share with others. It was really cool and really fun, but unfortunately we kind of lost momentum with that project as we got busy with other things. We didn’t forget about this space though, and maybe one day we’ll be able to coordinate ourselves well enough to get that back on track! 
For right now though, we kind of wanted a way to talk to you guys about what we’re up to more often. We have our newsletter and our Twitter, but we realized that we have a lot more things to say and nowhere to write that stuff down. So we’re repurposing this area so that we can tell you more about what’s going on and what we’re planning. We’ve spent a lot of time keeping quiet while we were taking steps towards opening a permanent space, and now that we’ve got that in motion we wanted to share more details about the things we’re doing and the progress we’re making. We’re really excited about a lot of things, and we hope you’ll be excited with us! There might be a couple different folks writing here (right now it’s EMi, hi!) and there’s definitely going to be all kinds of information shared that you haven’t really seen from us before. It should be fun!

Before this post ends though, here’s a quick reminder that tonight DOUG WILSON (aka that cool guy who made Joust!) will be speaking at NYU Poly about Accelerometers and it’s going to be pretty cool. We’ll also be setting up our Donation Center (which you can see at the top of the post) so if you were thinking of becoming a Babycastles Gallery Member but also wanted to get out the house a little, we’d love to see you! 
Anyway, get ready for some cool stuff in this space :D

Babycastles Staff Picks: 3 in Three

gamedesignerben:

image

Our world is so much less magical than I wanted it to be. Like many teenage weirdos, I spent my adolescence grasping at the usual straws in hopes of uncovering one last portal to an adventurous, hidden, cooler world: tarot cards, auras, Wiccan girlfriends. All to no avail.

I want to tell you about a game called 3 in Three. It’s a puzzle game, not in the Free-To-Play, Bejewelled sense, or the Wander-And-Wonder, Myst sense, but the Mind-Wracking Eleventh Hour sense. That’s the book by Graeme Base, by the way, not the CD-ROM. 3 in Three was set in a world inside a computer, and follows the exploits of an adventurous digit, 3, and her efforts to explore and restore a virus-laden Macintosh.

image

Released in 1989, the development of 3 in Three would have been in parallel with the Cyberpunk movement in science fiction literature (Bruce Sterling’s influential short story collection, Mirrorshades, arrived in 1986, while Neal Stephenson’s novel Snow Crash debuted in 1992). Despite predating Cyberpunk’s transition to film, 3 in Three’s visuals were full of the black and neon, geometric landscapes that would form early “cyberspace.”

Cyberpunk provided my teenage self with one last vector for arcane mysticism: computers. Sexy boxes of daemons and light, operated by console cowboy-wizards, tools for both self-enlightenment and world domination.

image

Can there be a less Cyberpunk-toned game about the world inside a computer than 3 in Three? Our heroine, 3, is cast as the only sane woman in a world gone mad. In working to restore the system via a series of logic puzzles, hints are provided via running commentary from 3, who displays the put upon straight-man wit of Adam Scott’s character Ben Wyatt on Parks & Recreation. Gone are noir’s shadow, and the techno-shaman’s fetish.

image

3 in Three tames the wilds of cyberspace with the order of a spreadsheet. It reminds us that every sorcerous dragonslayer eventually winds up a practical magician, whether that means controlling the elements to avert village droughts, or exploiting fundamental physical forces in a controlled reaction to power a closet light bulb.

I eventually gave up my doomed rebellion against mundane reality. Perhaps I finally started to see that there were things about the world that dedicated weirdos could change without magic. Or I discovered that there was no Wiccan girlfriend who could transform my world better than I could transform myself?

image

3 in Three is free these days, but you’ll need either a working computer from the 90’s, or an emulator. The designer, Cliff Johnson, has instructions for getting it running on Mac and Windows.

Babycastles Staff Picks: Slave Of God

gamedesignerben:

image

I want to tell you about this game called Slave Of God. It’s by a guy named Stephen Lavelle who also made the puzzle game English Country Tune. He’s the kind of guy who will make a game and just call it whatever.

Slave Of God is the sort of game that makes some people ask “is that even a game?” which usually just means that it’s reminiscent of Myst, which was definitely a game, but was also incredibly commercially successful, and that sort of tacit popular approval gives you a lot of leeway.

image

When you finally leave school and head out into the world of adulthood, one of the difficult things you have to learn is how to make friends when there’s not a scheduling computer throwing you into a room of strangers with similar interests every few months. I left school and fell directly into the world of AAA console game development at Electronic Arts, which left me with no free time, just outside of San Francisco, where I knew no one, so it took me nearly a year to figure out that I needed to own my own social life. I had been getting more into hip-hop recently, so I decided to go clubbing.

image

Every weekend, I would take the N train all the way from the Outer Sunset where I lived to Milk, a small hip-hop club notable for being directly across the street from what had once been a bowling alley, but is now Amoeba Records, which if you’re unfamiliar, is one of the best record stores in the country. Once there, I would stand awkwardly in a room of strangers who all seemed to have come in groups (I always went alone, since I didn’t know anyone to bring with me). Saying nothing, I would wait until the music got too loud to talk to any of them, drink a vodka Red Bull, and dance by myself until close.

image

I did this every weekend for a year. The music was cool (Diplo and Prince Paul came through regularly, which was awesome), but I wasn’t solving my fundamental loneliness problem. Today I still have very mixed feelings about the whole thing. I legitimately enjoyed the dancing, but it was also an incredibly isolating experience to be around those other dancing people, but feeling like I couldn’t interact with any of them.

Slave of God is like that, but it’s free, which is a lot better than a $10 cover ($7 before 10pm).

Babycastles Staff Picks: The Thrill of Combat! Randy Balma Municipal Abortionist? Mark Essen
image

Back in — oh I dunno, spring 2007 or thereabouts? — I visited some college friends of mine who were living in NYC and throwing a launch party for what would become TripleCanopy. There was a bunch of stuff there, I dunno, drinks, it was at some big artist co-working space in Brooklyn so, art? There was a show by The Tourettes and people were trashing about in the front room where that was happening. There was also a dark room in the back with some screens, and one of the screens was this game thing with really lo-fi graphics and helicopters and crazy tilting skyscrapers in the background. I played it a bunch but mostly it was plowing into skyscrapers with the helicopter. A few beers later I got into a conversation with Thomas Beard about it, this film curator guy, he was saying yeah, this is The Thrill of Combat, it’s by this guy Mark Essen out of Bard. You know him? No, who is he? Oh he’s a guy, he makes games. I’d never heard of him. I mean, I’d been playing games all my life, but….chess, poker, River Raid, Shining Force, Baldur’s Gate, Wizardry 8, Call of Duty, Project Gotham Racing. PC, Sega, Xbox. I had no idea about any of this “indie game” nonsense, what? who?

2012, I’m sitting in Games 101 at the NYU Game Center and Charles Pratt is talking about Flywrench, the Messhof masterpiece. Abstract action game. “Best game ever made”? Yes, probably. Flywrench! So good. Who is Messhof? Mark Essen. This was after I’d looked him up online in 2007 and downloaded Randy Balma Municipal Abortionist and didn’t even realize for 5 years that there was more than one level to it. It’s like, when you fall in love with someone, do you really wanna know everything there is to know about them?

Babycastles Staff Picks: Asphyx

Games often make us feel — or at least talk — like our avatar is an extension of ourselves. “Dude, wait up, I need to eat this mushroom to recharge my mana points.” But what might happen if a game reversed that relationship and asked you to imagine that you’re an extension of your avatar?

Asphyx, a platformer by the prolific Droqen (creator of Bennett Foddy’s favorite game, among many others), embodies one answer to that question. It’s a straightforward, generic platformer — you run, you jump. Ho-hum. Sometimes you miss a jump or a platform crumbles or you flip the wrong switch, and you end up underwater. When you’re underwater, you can’t breathe…. as in, YOU can’t breathe. You-the-player, not your avatar. The game doesn’t try to enforce this; instead it just tells you that “if you happen to die while playing Asphyx, you agree not to hold Droqen responsible, and also admit that you’re terrible at the game.” It’s a kinky cousin of Doug Wilson’s B.U.T.T.O.N. — why do you feel compelled to follow these arbitrary, abusive rules, exactly? 

Also, there’s gotta be a bad joke about immersion here.

Play it for free and at your peril at droqen.com.
