RIP Ralph Baer
I really, really hate writing obits. I really do. But I take it as a personal honor to be able to say good things about the men and women I respect, whether in this industry or just in my life, and Ralph Baer is the reason all of this exists in the first...
Generic Jack is a 3D running game developed for iOS where the player has to manoeuvre the central character Jack through a dangerous and challenging obstacle course. The player uses buttons on screen to jump over and slide under any incoming and potentially dangerous obstacles. Each level has its own silly theme and setting, allowing the player experience to differ from level to level with new obstacles and environments to get used to. The name ‘Generic Jack’ is pretty ironic, as the situations he gets into are far from generic. The game also takes influence from the highly addictive and stylized platform game The Impossible Game, where the player is vulnerable to anything that slows momentum and is then set back to the latest checkpoint.
