DragonBox Elements, a rich game that teaches geometric proof

02 June 2014 - 03:12 AM

We recently released our second game, DragonBox Elements.



Our goal is to convey the 5 big ideas in mathematics in less than 20 hours of game play.

  • Functions
  • Geometry (check)
  • Statistics
  • Algebra (check)
  • Numbersense

Our guiding principle is to design games that are inherently based on mathematics, as opposed to math simply tacked on to generic gameplay.


Would be more than happy to chat with anyone who has tried one of our games with their kid(s)!

Attack of the Gelatinous Blob - AI centric RTS game

29 November 2012 - 09:36 PM

Hello GameDevers! We'd like to share with you a project that's been sporadically worked on for about 2 years now in the form of multiple iterations.

The game is still in development. Public beta is expected out by the 3rd quarter of 2013. This is going to be a single-player RTS. As such the enemies, which will be mainly composed of urban civilians and the army, must be both challenging as well as entertaining. AI is a big focus for the game and will be achieved using GOAP techniques.

The game was first announced on IndieDB.org, and that is our main hub for continuous updates, in combination with Twitter. We'll do our best to keep threads like this one up to date though.

Thanks for reading! Now we'd love to hear how you like it so far, and what you might want to see or do in a game like this.

Otherside pre-alpha 1 available for download

Read original announcement

"Otherside" is a puzzle-platformer, currently in development by a group of 6 students from the Vancouver Film School. We've been developing this game for about 3 months now. After one week in full production, we are now ready to publicly release our first pre-alpha release. We will greatly appreciate any fellow game developers testing our game; it'll only take 5 minutes. In its current state the game is very buggy and it's got no end state. We're hoping that the gameplay elements implemented thus far are enough to convey the essence of fun in our game.

Otherside - A puzzle game made by (VFS) students

20 November 2011 - 04:19 PM

Introducing Otherside. This is a simple puzzle game still in early development. The core mechanic is cube movement, i.e. rotating, sliding and flipping cubes in order to create new paths to traverse through. After a few weeks in pre-production, our first prototype is available for play online. Additionally, you can view this brief walkthrough of our demo level, demonstrating all the types of cube movement available in Otherside.


Kindly post any bugs you may encounter to bugs.playotherside.com. Guest posting or registration is up to you.

Thanks for your time,

~ Team Hotsauce
