Thread: Middens

  1. #1



    Middens is a super cool, collage-esque game made with RPG Maker.

    It's made by John Clowder, his blurb on the game:

    ""Collage is the noble conquest of the irrational, the coupling of two realities, irreconcilable in appearance, upon a plane which apparently does not suit them." (Max Ernst)

    Middens is an exploration game using collage and original pixel art in tandem that takes the perspective of a drifter traversing a veritable x-zone. Roving its interminable wastes the nomad chances upon a sentient revolver beside an ominous pile of remains.
    The pistol offers its exploit in exchange for a pledge of inextricable companionship. Espousing to be the player's conscience the dubious weapon directs the drifter to a nearby outpost wherein the story further unfolds.

    Despite its appearance as a wasteland the rift is home to many strange denizens---
    some volatile and others ineffectual. Whatever their disposition the pistol represents the choice to engage them or to spare them. Aggression and passivity have their appropriate times with rewards and consequences being granted to both paths respectively.

    It's pretty neat and John is quite thoughtful. What do you think of the game?

    An interview with him:
    A podcast with him (~24:00 in ) which has interesting things like influence of collage, eastern philosophy on his game, as well as talking a bit about his creative process:

    He's also making a new game.."Moments of Silence", which has a kickstarter:

    Googled it and the art for this looks amazing.

    Is there much of a story? (Without giving away spoilers.)

    yeah, sort of - there's a definite setting (though it's a bit of an abstract setting), and sort of a narrative with the main character and its gun.
