Unity Awards 2012 finalists Pulse and The Mask of Qi look rather nice
Two Unity Awards 2012 finalists, Pulse and The Mask of Qi, have emerged from Vancouver Film School’s game design program, and they both look rather good.
The first one, Pulse is a first-person survival-suspense where a blind girl must find her way through a cavern by throwing forest sprites called Makos: the sounds they make help her visualise the world and also attracts monster.
So far, the game is just a playable build, but the teams behind it, Pixel Pi, hope to releases it digitally on PC and Mac and are “keeping an eye on Steam Greenlight.”
The Mask of Qi [I so wanted to type The Mark of Kri for some odd reason - ed] is a third-person platform-actioner from Team Kronk which has a flying squirrel running and gliding around an alien world above the clouds. You can download the game or play it in your browser through here.
Videos for both games are below.
