“My inner Rez fanboy wept at the sight & sound of Myriad.” (From The Attract Mode Archive: #070)

by Matthew Edward Hawkins

The following post originally appeared on attractmo.de, on August 12, 2013.

Basically, when someone says something is like Rez, I wake up and pay attention.

Erlend Grefsrud’s Myriad doesn’t necessary appear to share the same exact gameplay, nor aesthetics, but the influence is unmistakable. For those interested, you can learn more over at IndieGames.com.

Back to the subject of Rez, that’s how I came to know Jake Kazdal, i.e. the only white guy on staff; my interview with him for Gamasutra from back in the day is still a favorite of mine. Anyhow, it’s also why I’m so proud to have the latest from Jake, GALAK-Z, at the upcoming Fangamer X Attract Mode!

The official launch trailer has just been unveiled, and again, it’s not quite like Rez, but instead feels a lot like Bangai-O and other efforts from Treasure. Which totally floats my boat as well…

One last thing: does anyone know the status of both Planck v.1 and The Flight?
