“Soul Power explores ideas surrounding life and death; time and timelessness. The choices we make in life and their irreversible nature seem to stand in stark contrast to the infinite void that is death. In Soul Power I wanted to create a space where I could attempt to discuss the trials of life from a viewpoint on ‘the other side’.

But Soul Power is also a game. You’re a ghost, recently arrived in the afterlife. Talk to other ghosts and you’ll learn that you’re not the only one who feels a little lost. Help other ghosts discover their forgotten past and slowly you’ll start to reveal your own.

Frantic at times while demanding.

Skill and finesse, Soul Power offers some taxing challenges amongst all the ‘Soul-Searching’.

Soul Power is currently in the late stages of production and nearing completion. Developing the game entirely by myself has left me relatively blind to how it actually plays. While I’m definitely not trying to target the average casual gamer, I need to know if the first 5, 10, 15 minutes are straight forward and engaging. And if not, what exactly can I do to massage the gameplay to that polished state?”

Barry Collins

 

Redux is a First Person Shooter being developed by Barry Michael Collins using Unity3d.

20 years in the future, one man with his long time canine companion named Bounder has spent most of his life waiting for the right time, waiting for the Eldrich gods which now occupy earth to hibernate, giving him an opportunity to remove them and their influence from what remains of his home.
