Banner [Used on Facebook] (1200x627)Gamers and everyone that loves a brain-teaser now can download Dreamgate Studios‘ cartoon art style, light bending, color blending puzzle game Light in the Dark for their iOS, Android and Windows smart phone devices. Initial levels are simple enough for children to enjoy but later stages are challenging for adults.

The game begins with the discovery that the cute babies of Totems; a colorful undiscovered species, have lost their way in an ancient labyrinth tomb. Gamers must help the children reunite with the parents.

Players must solve perplexing puzzles and avoid dangerous but equally adorable enemies including mummies and sandmen. Villains force players to make moves quickly as these treacherous opponents can end a level after a certain amount of time has passed or tackle parent Totems.

Tagged Gameplay #1 [Used on App Store]Gamers can swipe the screen of their mobile devices to move mirrors, which bend light. Players can also reposition parent Totems, which illuminates surrounding areas in one of three colors. Baby Totems are only reunited with their parents when basking in the glow of their own preferred hue. To create colors which are different from those emitted by adult Totems, players blend the light of the parents with each other.

To unlock all content in Light in the Dark, gamers must also spotlight stars on each level, in addition to the baby totems. The more stars players highlight, the more levels they reveal.

“The experience we gained working on X-Com, BioShock and Fallout gave us the technical lessons needed to make amazing games,” David De Margheriti, CEO, Dreamgate Studios, explains. “We could focus on developing a title that offered a range of play and interesting elements for everyone.”

Light in the Dark is available for $1.99 USD on the App StoreGoogle Play and Windows Phone Apps+Games Store. If players are stumped by a puzzle they can also ask for hints, which are purchasable via microtransactions.

Dreamgate Studios has numerous updates in the works, including new levels to showcase advanced strategy.

STFU Wil Wheaton, or I will Crusher You!

STFU Wil Wheaton, or I will Crusher You!

Wil_Wheaton_Photo2When Wil Wheaton re-emerged as someone who mattered, I was really stoked to hear what he had to say. His piece on buying a toy when he was young was an instant classic. Wheaton was able to ride the wave of “Geek is Chic” and, to many, should be elevated to geek godhood. His cameo appearances in very popular shows including The Big Bang Theory and Eurekahelped cement his growing power base. He…

Swift is the Anti-Cyrus, and Hilton is still WINNING!

Last week, my youngest daughter read me a Facebook conversation several of her friends were having that had to do with the new Taylor Swift video. One of her proclaimed Feminist friends had posted an article that I think was posted by Jezebel (don’t quote me on that) decrying Taylor Swift’s “Shake It Off” video as racist, because it only shows black women twerking. (Note: I didn’t say…

Attacks at SDCC Continues Alarming Trend of Assaults Towards Cosplayers

((Editor’s note: I did have stronger language in this article when I was first writing to show how I feel about these sub-human animals who would sexually abuse or victim shame another person is such ways, but out of respect for those women who agreed to contribute to this article I toned down the language a bit. But only just a bit.))
