Incoboto Teaser Screen

I know I shouldn't do this so early, but it helps keep a record of my intent, and - believe it or not - giving an image public wings keeps me motivated.

So here it is: the first teaser screen of incoboto.

I'm trying something completely different, combining physics programming, my interest in generated content, cute-yet-unsettling moods and ambient music.

Game-play is really simple to control but has a lot of complex and chaotic repercussions.

I'm also going to be exploring the space between software-toys and games. Hopefully people will have fun with this even if they don't 'win'.

I'm also going to try and maintain a 'there are no bad things, only less-good things'. It'll be a challenge, but that's part of the fun.


  1. Cheating! That's totally the spaceship from Flaboo. Oh! Oh! they belong to the same universe maybe, a cross over? intertwining narrative paths! I love it!

  2. Think of it more as a homage: the way a Cylon from the original Battlestar appeared in the start sequence to The A-Team, or Robbie the Robot appeared in Gremlins. :-)

  3. LATE.....
    Looks great Dene! How's progress?
