E3 isn't just about the big, triple-A games, there are also plenty of indie games as well.
Yesterday I wandered over to the quiet indiecade corner of E3 to check out Snapshot and talk to its two man development team, Kyle Pulver and Peter Jones.
The game is a side-scrolling platformer with a unique twist. At any time, you can take pictures of objects in the environment to capture them, and then re-release them from the photos to assist you in completing the levels.
For example, you can take a picture of a walking purple elephant and then re-release it, by positioning the photo on the screen, to help you push a heavy box onto a button switch. You can then recapture the elephant by simply taking another photo.
Meta Quest Pro
The Meta Quest Pro centers on working, creating, and collaborating in a virtual space.
The same mechanic applies to moving crates, doors, and almost anything in the level. You can even stack items into a pile and snap a shot to hold multiple objects in one picture.
Gameplay is made more challenging with "no photo" zones and limits put on how many photos you can hold at a time.
The game is currently a PC demo that Kyle and Peter are showcasing to gain enough support to make a full blown version of the game, hopefully on multiple platforms.
"Snapshot" has unlimited gameplay possibilities and I can't wait to see this game progress.
