Virtual Reality and Social Games Dominate IndieCade 2016

IndieCade, the International Festival of Independent Games is usually held in downtown Culver City, but this year decided to host it at USC, at the University of Southern California’s School of Cinematic Arts. This year was all about Virtual Reality with over 25 games showcased throughout the the festival, including titles from Playstation VR. I had the chance to try out Psychonauts: In the Rhombus of Ruin and it blew my mind. Hopefully Double Fine will make a VR version of their next installment to the series Psychonauts 2. Other VR games that are worth checking out are Floor Plan, Giant Cop, and Cosmic Trip.

When arriving on Day 1 of IndieCade, I noticed a positive change in the attendees that differed from previous years. A large group young students and girls were interested in creating and programming video games. That was my highlight of this year.

In the SCI building, Intel Gaming for Everyone Pavilion embraces diversity in games with developers and organizations like the AbleGamers Charity (who helps make gaming controls accessible for people with disabilities), Code Liberation and Girls Make Games (women/non binary support groups for females in technology), and Game for Change (a movement to promote games with social commentary and education). One of the huge presentations at the pavilion was We Are Chicago. This year’s award ceremony was held at the Norris Theater with major wins from Hyper Lift Drifter, who walked away with The Jury Choice Award, Myst creator Rand Miller with the Trailblazer Award, and 1979 Revolution: Black Friday from iNK Stories with The Grand Jury Award.

So it Finally Had to Happen…

I’ve had to start backlogging photos on KillTheNewMedia.com to make room on the site for new galleries, since I have not yet been able to upgrade to a Premium Membership on WordPress. These will be available for $15+ Patreon subscribers, and links to the galleries will posted directly to Patreon.

HERES THE LINK TO KILL THE NEW MEDIA’S PATREON! – https://www.patreon.com/KillTheNewMedia

 

Cosplay and non-video game culture photos and editorials will be leaving the site first, and the best ones will go in my personal portfolio, which will be publicly available once compiled on a different site. Photos taken by other multimedia artists which need to be backlogged will also be available via Patreon, and posting them elsewhere is their choice to make. However, external links to the galleries they have posted will also be posted to Patreon for $15+ subscribers.

Some changes have also been made to Pledges. Any content that is not video game culture or counter-culture related will NOT be posted to the site, but these photos and editorials will be posted on Patreon for $15 subscribers with private gallery links. This includes convention, cosplay, and high fashion, as well as event and live performance photography.

IN OTHER AWESOME NEWS! I no longer have to attend physical therapy 3 times a week while working a full time day job. This sucked up so much of my time that I could have spent on the site and its content. After 5 months I finally have my life back and its freakin’ amazing.

So expect lots of new content!! I’ll be posting tons of stuff on the site and on Patreon and I’m so excited to share these last few months of music, art, chiptunes, video games, virtual reality raves, neon clothes, pokemon parties, metal shows, and general mischief.

Also, THANK YOU! So many of you have contributed to this site in so many ways. The pledges, the reposts, the video game party invites, the music download codes, the hugs. You’re all so fantastic and your contribution makes this project all the more exciting and really makes this an awesome experience. You da best. ❤

Soundtrack Lineup Announced for Music Puzzler ‘Chime Sharp’ – And it’s AWESOME

Publishing studio Chilled Mouse announced the soundtrack lineup for the upcoming music puzzler game Chime Sharp (or ‘Chime#’) today, and it’s pretty fucking awesome.

chimesharp

Grabbing a variety of artists involved in the electronic, experimental, and chiptune music scene to provide a brand new ambient and engaging playlist for the project, the music sequencer/Tetris puzzle game challenges players to rearrange blocks to be read as notes, which in turn remixes the melodies into energetic dance pop tracks.

The game will include 15 levels, with 15 new songs by the following artists:

I told you it was rad.

Expect to see it on Steam in late June!

It’s also time to renew KillTheNewMedia.com! I can’t believe it’s been a whole year since I’ve been doing all of this independently. ❤ I’ve been slowing down here and there while adjusting to LA and working in my social life and passions in-between, but pushing yourself beyond your ideas of limits really helps you grow and explore yourself and your practices, and I can look back over the last few years and tell that my abilities have grown so much, and still grow every day! This has been a really amazing experience, to say the very, very least!

If you’d like to support, I have a Patreon! Anything helps really, and all funds are used towards website maintenance, camera upgrades, travel, ect… Help me make this year amazing! ❤ – https://www.patreon.com/KillTheNewMedia
