Resonance unveiled

It was quite obvious that Vince Twelve of independent (and usually freeware) adventure game developer xii games was up to something, but he just kept refusing to let us in on the details, let alone on the intricate script. Yes, despite having him face the Spanish Inquisition twice, complete with comfy chairs and soft cushions.

Then, all of a sudden, he just went on and admitted that: a) xii games has been working on its first commercial game since May, b) the name of the game will be Resonance, c) a very experienced team has already been assembled and d) the first -of hopefully many- developer's diary is available right here.

Now, in case you feel you need to know more and can't be bothered to read said developer's diary, here's a lovely interview with Vince by yours truly and this is the last game he came up with. Apparently, 't was none other than the critically acclaimed, brilliantly named and wildly innovative What Linus Bruckman Sees When His Eyes Are Closed.

  1. I'm downloading that "Linus Bruckman" game right now. It looks pretty cool.

    Oh, and the name is badass too.

  2. It definitely is. Hope you enjoy it. Both storylines too...

  3. Our chief weapon is surprise...surprise and fear...fear and surprise.... Our two weapons are fear and surprise...and ruthless efficiency.... Our *three* weapons are fear, surprise, and ruthless efficiency...and an almost fanatical devotion to the Pope.... Our *four*...no... *Amongst* our weapons.... Amongst our weaponry...are such elements as fear, surprise.... I'll come in again.

  5. I confess!

  6. Hah! Knew you would...

    Always a pleasure!

  7. ..... the blogging muse is with you oh greatest of gnomes... as mr.download monkey has pointed out what an extraordinary series of quality posts....

  8. Your devotion to Vince xii is laudable... When he's a big name in the world of commercial games development, I trust he's gonna slip you a couple of quid...

  9. Ah, but Father, I'll be so ridiculously rich by then, I'll probably be producing Vince's games. Then again, I might just end up selling fried peanuts in the streets of Montevideo... One can never tell.
