For those who haven’t tried it yet, I highly recommend the videogame Hoard! Available for PS3 and Steam for both Mac and PC, Big Sandwich Games has just released an expansion for it cleverly titled “Dyanmite Roll” on the Steam platform.
I actually did the score and sound design for this fantastic game. Working with Tyler Sigman was a pleasure and I had fun extensively play-testing this title. I think the thing that impresses me the most, besides the awesome gameplay, is that I never actually got bored of it. I would venture to say 99% of people I know working games will eventually loathe the title they are working on by the end (at least a little) due to sheer repetition. This one never managed to wear thin for me, not ever, and continues to be one of my favourite games to this day. 🙂
So if you’re cruising for a fun, quick, addictive game that also works well in groups — be sure to check it out!
Oh yes, and IGN gave it their “Best Quick Fix” award for 2010… Still not convinced? Here are some nice things that Ars Technica had to say about the game.
