SUPERHYPERCUBE

SUPERHYPERCUBE is a VR “first person puzzler” with classic controls and intuitive shape-matching gameplay. You control a group of cubes and rotate it to fit through a hole in a wall that is constantly moving toward you. Each time you fit through another wall without crashing, more cubes are added to your cluster. Head tracking is critical in the game – as your cluster of cubes gets bigger, you will need to lean around it to see the hole and quickly determine what rotations to make. Stay alive as long as possible, and add your high scores to the ranks of players around the world! The game was released on October 13th, 2016 for Playstation VR.

SUPERHYPERCUBE is a game by Kokoromi Collective, whose members include Damien Di Fede, Phil Fish, Heather Kelley, and Cindy Poremba.


MOUNTAIN

MOUNTAIN is an ambient procedural mountain simulator. It generates a virtual mountain based on drawn responses to three questions. From that point on the only interaction you have with the mountain is to move the the camera around and play little tunes on a keyboard.

MOUNTAIN has received excellent coverage in The Atlantic, Wired, Gamasutra, and LA Weekly, among others.

MOUNTAIN costs only $1 and is available for iOS as well as for Mac, Windows, and Linux via the MOUNTAIN website.

Portraying The Terran Condition:
An Approach To Simulate A Civilization

Portraying The Terran Condition: An Approach To Simulate A Civilization is a First Person Research Shooter.

This 7D (backwards compatible to 2D) world simulation depicts six different key events in the history of Terra (“Earth”), a low-tech civilization that self-destructed several aeons ago. Based on the relatively few biological and cultural artifacts, a team of multi-AI minds was able to recreate a stunningly accurate depiction of this ancient civilization.

Download: Windows or Mac

This game was created for Fuck This Jam as part of my 2012 residency with monochrom at Museumsquartier Vienna.

Glee.


An audio-driven game, written in Processing, created by Kokoromi. Pulsers are spawned in reaction to the sound going into the game and the player can move them around the screen using physics-based powers. Various enemies will also appear to prey on the player’s Pulsers. Glee. was my first serious foray into audio programming and became the catalyst to starting work on Minim, my Java audio library. Play it.

BOOM BOX

The boombox dude hanging out on a platform.
Created for the TIGSource A Game By Its Cover competition, and winner of a Best Audio Badge, you control a character in a 2D side-scrolling world and collect Jams, which you can then play to build up a sweet tune. There are other boombox dudes in the world who will jam with you when you are playing what they want to hear. The goal is to simply collect all the jams in the level and then just jam out with them. Play it or watch a playthrough video.
