Behind the Dangerdesque
Introducing the "roomisodic" gaming model, and available to play for free.
ATLANTA, GA, December 5, 2008 - In this age of calculator wristwatches, who has time to play a game for hours at a time? Videlectrix™, leading developer and publisher of 8-bit games with good graphics, is announcing their plan to twist the industry sideways and otherways with the introduction of their groundbreaking "roomisodic" gaming model. Unlike so-called episodic gaming, roomisodic gaming allows the player to explore an entire room, guaranteeing at least several minutes of quality entertainment!
With multi-pixel graphics, an innovative WASD control scheme, and looping midi music, each Videlectrix roomisode promises to take the player one screen deeper into a somewhat intriguing story. The first roomisode, "Behind the Dangerdesque," is now available for free at www.videlectrix.com. Filling out paperwork has never been so action-packed!
"We've seen other gaming formats come and go -- punch cards, 5.25" floppy discs, SyQuest discs, you name it," says Videlectrix's CEO, who we think is the one with the blond mustache. "Now we're on the cutting edge with roomisodic, a model that's here to stay!"
Against legal advice, he went on: "And don't believe anything you hear about the integrity of our 8-bit containment field breaking down and spewing radiation out on innocent players. That's a load of tall 'tales' perpetuated by some other -sodic gaming company." Videlectrix's other employee could not be reached for comment.
Videlectrix are already famous for using computers to make video games such as the Trogdor arcade classic, the next-gen text adventure Peasant's Quest, the side-scrolling platformer Stinkoman 20X6, and the unforgettable Color Television Calibration Cartridge. The Big V (as Videlectrix sometimes likes to be called) is pleased that the roomisodic model will equip them to break free of their supposed corporate partner Telltale Games, who occasionally claimed to listen to their input on Strong Bad's Cool Game for Attractive People.
Since the beginning of organized time, or shortly thereafter, the 'Trix, as they are sometimes known, has been at all four fronts of the electronic video gaming industry, providing lo-res entertainment to parents and children alike. In the early years, The Big V got their start by typing numbers into calculators and then turning the calculators upside down to form words. In 2003, they partnered with Homestarrunner.com to release the arcade peasant-masher Trogdor!, followed by several other 8-bit hits.
