Dyson on Bytejacker!

Now this is very nice. Anthony Carboni and co. host a web show dedicated to reviewing and promoting indie games, and the show does it with gusto and a nice professional sheen. It is called BYTEJACKER and I have embedded the current episode at the top of this post.

They genuinely love games and review them fairly, in my opinion, so I decided to drop them a line about Dyson the other day. As it turned out they knew the game anyway and decided to include it in the current Monday episode. The Monday episode introduced three different free indie games, people can then go on an play them an vote for the one they like best on the Bytejacker blog. The THURSDAY show will then take the game with most votes and review it in more detail as the “Free indie of the week!”

Have ago at the three games yourself and pick the one you like best! :-)

  1. Good job! Dyson is a good game and deserves to be highlighted and shared. (I still need to play the latest version, but haven’t had time recently).

  4. Hello, yep the Mac version is still not out yet. I’m having trouble getting it working. You can try it out for yourself if you like - just download the Linux version and try to run it using Mono. It might go a bit funny though. My main reason for not announcing that it might work is that people have been having bugs with the mouse and stuff, so until I can get it packed into a .app and know that it’s working, then I’d like to refrain from an announcement.

  6. Wow! I enjoyed this game immensely over the holiday break. The smooth minimalist look and feel plus the ambient music by milieu kept calling me back to play even though I beat all 5 levels. My seven year old was also mesmerized by the game prompting discussions with her ranging from math/exponential growth, biology and ambient electronica music. She asked when she could get her own computer to “play cool games like this”. She will serve the mother-tree well.

    Keep up the great work guys. My family and I are looking forward to any and all updates!

  7. Mechtronika,

    Thanks for the extremely nice comments, we are adding more music and deeper features (But keeping it fairly elegant we hope) so I hope the future versions will entertain you and your family even more :-)

  8. Guys, I think you hit the nail on the head. This is very close to a game concept I’ve been developing for years and I think it’s killer. There’s a real need for an abstract RTS of this type. Think modern chess. I have some ideas I’d love to share with you guys and I’m an experienced game developer too and would love to help you guys out if you need it - especially with an online component. Have you guys looked at that yet?

  9. Yes!! Finally I can get to say that I’ve had a beer with an IGF finalist!
    Actually I can say that I’ve had a beer with three of them!
    Kian and Erik are really nice guys, be sure to take good care of eachother!

    Dyson deserves this.
