Dork Shelf and Gamercamp make media partnership official!
Gamercamp, the little games-festival-that-could, returns for its fourth annual outing in the city. The brainchild of co-founders Mark Rabo and Jaime Woo, Gamercamp is a celebration of everything related to games and the people who make (and play) them. With keynote speakers representing games ranging from AAA to indie, Gamercamp Lvl 4 aims to be the most ambitious iteration to date.
Toronto’s Jonathan Mak and Shaw-Han Liem have finally released Sound Shapes, their attempt to further blur the line between video games and music. We’ve already spoken with them about how the project materialized and heard about Mak’s possibly surprising opinions about building a game with traditional platforming at its core. But how does the game actually… shape up?
We had the chance to speak with game designer Jon Mak and musician Shaw-Han Liem earlier this summer, to discuss their new game Sound Shapes. While an extremely loud demo of Dyad played behind us, we talked about their process, Mak's hatred of platformers, the game's musical backbone, and much more.
