I’ve just had a quick play through of a rather interesting game. It’s called Gravity Bone, and it’s a very short (two levels) game based on the Quake 2 engine (which isn’t required to play) and focusing on espionage. It uses a brilliantly cubist style that makes up for what the engine can’t handle, and at the same time makes it seem like one big advert from the 50s. It’s kind of how TF2 would look if Valve had gone the whole way. It’s a bit crazy, and I’ve never seen anyone get that… violent over a few pictures.
It’s really rather brilliantly made. There’s no start up screen; it throws you straight into the game. The controls are what you’d expect, but in case you are new to games, they’re shown on some wonderful little in-game adverts. There are two levels, each with a rather simple objective, and involve little effort. The second level is by far the longer of the two, and involves some semi-tricky platforming, but apart from that it’s just interesting to play and experience it. You can download it here. If you do grab it, let us know what you think below.
