Speaking of Flashbang, I’ve been remiss in mentioning their latest prototyped game they’re showing off via their Blurst Blog: Crane Wars. While the game was only a few days into development (and the video above shows a more intimate look at internal meetings pitching additional gameplay ideas and direction), it’s already being driven down a road very pleasingly reminiscent of Rare’s Nintendo 64 underdog hit Blast Corps meets more tangible physics.
In the spirit of even further openness, Flashbang have also already uploaded one stage of that prototype to the web, which you can play here and send feedback to the studio. Flashbang’s Matt suggests the trials below:
Re-stack the buildings. Try to make a giant tower!
Pick up buildings and chuck them at other buildings.
Ram through buildings and watch them gib!
Try to carry a building carefully through the town.
