26.08.13FAN GAMER X ATTRACT MODE PARTY @ PAX


For the second year in a row, Capy is super proud to be a part of the FAN GAMER X ATTRACT MODE Party. It has amazing art, games and music. For details including time, location & RSVP, CLICK HERE!

This year, all of you cool kids will get a chance to play SYNCHROMA, developed during Capy Jam by our own Renaud Bédard & Nicolas “Qiqo” Stephan.

This is the first time ever that a Capy Jam game will be played by anyone other than us at Capy or a select few superfriends! Exciting/scary! We asked Renaud to share his thoughts about Synchroma, and here’s what he had to say:

Synchroma is a short game developed during Capy Jam by myself (Renaud Bédard) & artist/animator Nicolas ‘Qiqo’ Stephan.

While I would like to pretend that this concept was our vision from the beginning, in reality we had no idea what the heck we were actually making until very late in the process (as Jams tend to go). We knew that we wanted to create an “obstacle course” style game, and specifically one where the controls fight against you, as you simultaneously fight to survive. After the four days we ended up somewhere between Canabalt and QWOP. Sort of.

In Synchroma, the player controls a glitchy black cube, but without any indication of how to control it. It’s a game about physical memory, and how much finger gymnastics you can memorize/perform under the pressure created by big red spiky rolls of death coming at you.

Perhaps the best thing is that we suck at it exactly as much as any player. Does that make it a rogue-like-like-like? Or does that just mean it’s wickedly challenging and more than a little ridiculous?

Give it a shot at the FAN GAMER X ATTRACT MODE Party and feel free to tell Qiqo what you think – he’ll be there!

On top of having a crazy/enraging/fun game, Capy artist/animator extraordinaire Kelly Smith will have this amazing Journey-inspired piece showing in the gallery (and available for sale) alongside TONS of other amazing artwork:

I know we’re super biased, but we love this event. You should come hang out with us.

23.08.13CAPY @ PAX: SUPER TIME FORCE & SUPER MERCH!

08.08.13PAUSE


Hey folks! It might seem like ages ago, but E3 was crazy for us. Phil Spencer walked out on stage at Microsoft’s press conference in a Capy shirt and introduced a teaser trailer for our newest game, BELOW. Later that week we showed another trailer for Below as a part of HORIZON (which was the greatest). The reaction from fans, press and colleagues was amazing – we’re so glad that you’re all as excited about Below as we are.

However, because of the way the game was announced & discussed in the press, there was naturally a little bit of confusion after the dust settled. And that confusion stuck around. So, to clear things up, we wanted to take a quick second and answer your number one question:

Like many games on stage at E3, Below will be available on the Xbox One first. Then, after a period of time, CAPY can bring it elsewhere. It’s always been this way.

We’ve said it many times before, but it is worth repeating: working with Microsoft Studios has been great, and they deserve real kudos for putting our dreamy roguelike-inspired game of exploration and discovery in the spotlight at E3… and we are certain they’ll continue to do more of that going forward. This clarification is about answering our fans, and shouldn’t reflect negatively on Microsoft or Xbox One – they’ve been the biggest CAPY supporters out there (and also lets face it: Titanfall and Halo are going to be crazy delicious game magic). The Xbox 360 has been a great home for marquee downloadable games, and we believe this is something that will continue, and grow, over the years on Xbox One.

At CAPY, our goal has always been simple: Create unique, beautiful video games that we love… and bring them wherever there is an audience (and ideally, a great controller) to play them. This is our goal with Below. This is our goal with Super TIME Force. This will be our goal with whatever crazy idea we do next.

Thanks for listening/reading and apologies for any confusion. To all of our fans: Thank you for your support. We appreciate it so so so much.

From Nathan Vella & Kris Piotrowski, on behalf of the crew here at Capy.
