Think you've got what it takes to climb to the top of SineWave Tower? In honor of the release of Radical Spectrum Volume 2, AI and publisher New Reality Games are offering a cash prize for the first 10 people to beat the game! That's right, you can actually MAKE money playing our new game. All you need is a way to record yourself playing, an internet connection to upload the video, and a PayPal account. The contest will run until July 26th, 2018, 1 year after release.
FIRST TO WIN - $25
THE NEXT NINE - $10
The Rules: All you need to do is record yourself playing the game, and upload the video to YouTube. The video MUST show the beginning of the session and go through all the way to the end. You may use the Save & Quit option to pause your progress. Do not edit it out if you do, include it as part of the video. If we notice editing artifacts in the gameplay, you will be disqualified. You can use any character and power-up available in the game. Audio is not necessary. Please don't cheat with video editing software! It would be most uncool of you.
Once the video is uploaded, email with the subject line "contest submission", and simply put the link to the video in the body of the email. Once it has been verified, we'll contact you and create a post here on our website, as well as Facebook with the announcement. You will be able to include a message and/or photograph with the post if you wish. We will then promptly send you the money via PayPal at our expense should any fees apply.
The AI Mission
Autonomic Interactive is a video game lab dedicated to creating great games with great stories and helping to usher in the next paradigms that will define future generations of gaming. But all great journeys begin with a single step. Our first step, Radical Spectrum Volume 1, deputed on Steam, iOS, and Android in the summer of 2016. Our second, Volume 2 of the series, was released in the summer of 2017. We are now hard at work on Volume 3, which we hope to release in the summer of 2018.
Starting from nothing gave us the idea to cut our teeth by looking to our progenitors for influence. The Radical Spectrum series is inspired by the history of gaming itself. Each one represents an era of gaming, taking great concepts and building on them with a unique color-matching mechanic and a developing saga. Volume 1 took some cues from Space Invaders. Volume 2 moves forward to more descriptive arcade games like Donkey Kong. For Volume 3, we are looking at the late NES era/early SNES. We are paying homage to these developers while attempting to learn the same lessons they did while delivering something that feels classic and familiar yet modern.
As we continue this trend, we will pass by what modern gaming in just a few years and have to create new paradigms, which we are entirely prepared for. When we have acquired the resources and the knowledge our path will grant us, we are poised to bring audiences something they've never experienced before. Storytelling in games is still in its infancy, and we are here to help it grow up and explore what it means to be an interactive experience.
Autonomic Interactive isn't just a developer, it's a mission. A mission to blow open the doors on this whole video game thing, and maybe even help define the future.
