Nostalgic Game Design for Horizon Chase

Horizon Chase is one of those games that brings back a lot of good memories, especially if you are from the generation that played the classic Sega Outrun or Nintendo's Top Gear. Outrun is the best reference because of the Ferrari. Another amazing thing about this game and game design is that I know the folks behind it, they are from my hometown, which makes me even happier. So for this post I just wanted to share the work that Rodrigo Bellão published on his Behance profile. I added the info he was kind to share with us.

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is my first try on the Witcher universe and I'm pretty satisfied with the quality of this game, which has an giant open world and dozens, even hundreds of hours of possible gameplay.

I've played it sometimes and it's pretty impressive how beautiful this game is.

Who doesn't love gaming? Almost everyone here was raised playing old school games in their Atari, Sega Genesis or Super Nintendo and I must say that it's super awesome to see those games back in other ways.

A little more than 2 months ago we had a great article about Mega Drive (Sega Genesis) game cover arts. Many people enjoyed it very much, and many asked for a next post: Snes cover arts. And here they are. Unfortunatelly, Snes cover arts are a little bit harder to find than the Mega's ones, but I've managed to find some cool ones. I really hope you guys enjoy these as much as I do.

Old School Game Cover Arts

Back in the day, the Master System, the Sega Genesis (a.k.a. Mega Drive), and the Super Nintendo would just make us over our heads... 16 and 32 bits were HOT stuff back then. Those bits would make us spend whole afternoons playing Mickey's Castle of Illusion, Desert Strike and many other games... and a great way to remember those days, is taking a look at game cover arts. While writing the Michael Jackson's Inpiration post, I ran into the old Moonwalker game cover art, and memories began to flow like crazy...

First International Trailer for Max Payne

It's been some time since I got this hyped in a morning. During my regular visits to First Showing (a must visit for all movie freaks), I ran into something I wasn't expecting: the 1st friggin' international trailer for the Max Payne movie. And I know the preview picture isn't from the movie, but from the game, but it's totally cool. I don't know if you guys realize who big this is. For those who were out to Venus for the past 8 years, Max Payne is a video game character, from a game called, uhn, Max Payne.

Awesome LEGOd Video Games

Yesterday we found about this 16 years old kid who made nice pics of old games in the real world, and it was quite funny. Today, following a potential series of game related posts, some cool pictures of "Legod Video Games". Ronn (or skinny coder), a dude from LA came up with the idea of building old games scenes with Lego, and the result is really something. Check these out! And we've also found a Flickr pool full of these... Hope you all like it. Cheers! :)

Old Games in the Real World

Probably one of the greatest things about design is when someone comes up with a good idea do revive old, cool games. What about a Mario Kart race going on in highway somewhere, or maybe Donkey Kong throwing stuff at Mario and Luigi from a real skyscraper? It was a really awesome idea, the person who came up with these is a real genius. Does anyone knows who did it? If you do, drop a comment! Enjoy and cheers!
