Triangles!

I’ve started making triangles, see. Four months into unemployment I got slightly jittery from not doing any graphics at all for the whole period, and into various geometric shapes. I thought “there must be a tool for this by now”. Found two, IsoSketch, which is a nice isometric sketchpad for iPad, and Hexels, an excellent (if layerless :D) variable grid painting system. It outputs nice .svg:s which can then be used in Adobe’s offerings.

Hexels Pro has custom shapes and grids. Yum.

That got me into sketching again, which got me into thinking about a first person geometry trip adventure game. Which can be seen as a dangerous thing. Since this is one of those ideas that wouldn’t be worth stealing, I’ll lay it out for you:

Our protagonist is a rather square fellow, living large at his apartment. He has clicked one of those “earn money by surfing the web” -banners and is now making his living surfing the polygon waves of d√∂nerweb. Then an envelope appears on his doorstep, containing experimental pentagonal and hexagonal drugs to supplement his doctor’s triangle medication order. In a moment’s lapse of thinking our low-poly protagonist takes a pill and is transported into a penta(hexa)gonal mirror world.

The controls, which are a bit QWOP to begin with, turn into jelly. Rising from a chair demands a quick time event. He must find his way back home, fix his thumb that got cut off by a stray triangle and … well, take the rest of those experimental polygons. Oh yeah, the dialogue (and mostly monologue) is all sung by a Vocaloid and there’s a karaoke-style subtitiling. Sometimes in geometric language. Yeah.

Some things you can't steal...

Yeah. Some things you can’t steal. I should probably get a job. :D
