Today, while digging inside Little Big Adventure 2 backups, we found back some "high res" pictures from LBA2. Nothing new but it gave us the idea to make an Oripuzzle with them.
You might have already find Oripuzzle in the Fred's Lab. This is where you can find the file to download and print.
When I'm bored working on a game, I invent another one. Just for me, my family, sometimes my friends. To clear my head, I explore, learn, try... I have always done that since I discovered computers and electronics thirty one years ago when I was 15 years old. However, those unpretentious recreational activities, experimentations or practices, usually ended up on a forgotten hard disk or in a drawer.
But today, thanks to the web and all those different game devices, I have decided to open my toys' chest to share all my good memories and my most recent homemade with you. Explore FRED's LAB, play the games . You will enjoy them.
On the occasion of the 20th anniversary of the game "Alone in the Dark" I was invited at the Game Developper Conference in San Fransisco as a speaker to do a PostMortem of this game which was two so intense years of my life.
A lot of stress, it was difficult to focus on my pronunciation and what I have to say. At least I hope it was understandable and interesting as I uncovered anecdotes and some secrets that led this game to be the first Survival Horror 3D game.
Many thanks to Yaz0r for his welcome and help hand during this week ! (and for the picture too!)
By the way, I love this shirt... ;)
