Star Mazer DSP Gets Halloween Update

Posted on October 26, 2016 by Rae Michelle Richards

Indie rogue-like shooter Star Mazer DSP, developed by our friends at Pixel Jam & Imagos Software, is receiving a special update and contest just in time for Halloween.

A special game mode titled Boss Rush Mode challenges commanders with chosing their top pilots and guiding them to victory against 3 difficult versions of pre-exiting bosses. Those who successfully complete this challenging limited time event will have their name etched on the newly minted leaderboards and entered into a contest to be featured in the game. Boss Rush Mode will only be availably until October 31st so you’ve got aproximately 4 days to leave your mark or forever lament not being able to be featured in Star Mazer DSP.

Here are the prizes on offer for those who make it to the top of the leader boards:

Ace Pilot Grand Prize
Add a complete custom First name, Middle name and Last name to the name pool for DSP pilots!
Plus win the Official Starr Mazer T-Shirt from Fangamer

Wingman Runner Up Prize
Add a complete custom First name, Middle name and Last name to the name pool for DSP pilots!

The Top Dog Third Prize
Add a custom First name, Middle name and Last name to the name pool for DSP pilots!

Star Mazer DSP is currently available through Steam Early Access for $9.99 USD and will be playable at next week’s Day of the Devs presented by Double Fine in San Francisco CA.


GDC 2016: Interview With Nicole Stark From Disparity Games

Posted on March 17, 2016 by Rae Michelle Richards

Ninja Pizza Girl

An entire family make up the development team over at Disparity Games and I got the chance to sit down with Nicole Stark from the team to chat about her family’s company, representation in indie games and learn a little bit about their first title Ninja Pizza Girl.

Nicole was the recipient of a GDC Scholarship through #IneedDiverseGames and we also had time to chat about what it’s like to travel all the way from Australia to attend GDC for the first time.

Their first game, Ninja Pizza Girl, is already available on Steam. Here’s the official description:

Ninja Pizza Girl is a serious game about self-esteem, bullying and resilience – and pizza delivering ninjas! Its deeply-woven story follows Gemma, a sixteen-year-old girl working as a pizza delivery ninja for her father’s independent Pizzeria.

Check out the video interview in the embedded player below and look out for more coverage from GDC 2016 later today.
