This could be considered a continuation of yesterday's post...
Jenova Chen is a student in Interactive Media at the University of Southern California School of Cinema and Television. He has designed two of the more interesting games I've played lately.
His first game to attract attention was called Cloud. In it, you play a young boy who flies around gathering up clouds and redistributing them in the sky. It's really a sort of zen-like experience.
His latest work is called Flow. You start off as a simple microorganism swimming in a blue sea. The object of the game is to eat and evolve, while trying to avoid being eaten.
Both of these games seem simple at first glance, and that's what makes them so impressive. The controls are intuitive and the concepts are easily understood.
I'll be keeping an eye on Jenova's blog. It will be interesting to see what he does after graduation.
