…It’s TGI Friday: Tag: The Power of Paint?

Tag: The Power of Paint

Tag: The Power of Paint is an innovative first-person puzzle platformer that requires you to paint the world around you with special paints as you work your way towards the goal.

Each color of paint gives you a different ability, with green launching you off the surface, red giving you a speed boost, and blue allowing you to stick to the surface, and you can combine them for even more powers.

Recently, Tag was awarded the Best Student Game and Student Showcase awards at the Independent Games Festival, and best of all, it’s free, so you have no excuse for not checking it out.

…Ruby Tuesday went ka-boom?

Apparently Ruby Tuesday thinks it’s pretty clever.

After promising to blow up one of their restaurants to symbolize their commitment to change, they “accidentally” blew up a neighboring restaurant while broadcasting the whole thing live on the internet.

In addition, they’ve issued an apology letter on their site to the restaurant that they blew up:

Ruby Tuesday Apology Letter

Thankfully, plenty of people happened to be there with camera in hand, and YouTube is now filled with commercial sized snippets of first person viewpoints; all appropriately tagged, described and titled to lend that extra bit of authenticity to the whole thing.

Don’t think you can hide from me though Ruby Tuesday, because I can see right through your shenanigans.

…The Unfinished Swan needs paint?

The Unfinished Swan

The Unfinished Swan is unfortunately (and ironically) unfinished, but the idea is fantastic: You’re in an entirely white, first person world and you’re armed with a paint gun. To get around, you must splatter paint on everything in front of you to help navigate the unusual garden.

Right now they’re looking for a graphics and physics programmer, so if you think you can help, be sure to check out the site, but if you’d rather just sit back and watch the magic happen, then check out the video below for a preview of what’s in store:
