Last week I've stumbled into a bunch of game projects that I found really interesting. And the most impressive fact is that all these projects are created by one man team.

The first one called [Inaka Project] where you play as a postman exploring the Japanese countryside, delivering letters and interacting with the local residents, spirits, and yokai. Developed by Inasa Fujio (a full time college student) on Unreal Engine 4, Inaka project quickly gain attention despite the unfinished visuals and little gameplay.

I wonder if it would came out before Kojima's Death Stranding? :D

For more info check out developer's Twitter, Patreon blog and game thread on Reddit.

Next one is Waycaster, a Unity powered platform-puzzle adventure about light and shadow developed by , concept artist and game developer from UK.

The look and feel instantly reminds me of Miyazaki's Laputa animation and games like Journey and RiME. Odd structures and strange mechanisms covered with lush vegetation, flying high in the skies... what else do you need? :)

Waycaster's Twitter and Nick Carver's ArtStation page.

And the final one is Star Wars Racer, a fan made Unreal Engine 4 project that actually blew me away... well, just take a look:

No bad for one man team huh? For more info check out Rob Jin's ArtStation page and Reddit thread.
Finally saw Bohemian Rhapsody, a 2018 musical film about the British rock band Queen. There was a moment, where the guys say "we don't want repeat ourselves, the same formula over and over" on their next album and it really stuck with me.

Hmm interesting... half of Deviantart think that comments are most important, yet we experience constant decline of feedback.
I wonder how many of you guys saw Cowboy Bebop? To me it's one of the masterpieces of storytelling, design and animation coated with exceptional soundtrack. A rare case of a perfect match, where everything fits into place from beaten-up spaceships to jazzy tunes. Beyond Ghibli recently put a really well thought retrospective on this animation classic, taking a look at it's rocky road to release and the lasting impact it's had on the industry:

Did you know that [film director] Shinichiro Watanabe's brief was only to create something with spaceships for Bandai to sell toys? And three episodes later Bandai bailed out, realising it won't be able to sell these spaceship toys.

Decades later we still haven't surpassed Bebop's magic. Even Watanabe's own Space Dandy (2013) didn't come much closer. It's fun and crazy sure, but you can't compare the amplitude and impact. Perhaps Firefly animation could do the magic, but that's another story...

How is your Astra Black comic coming along? It has been a while since it was given a new page, so is it still on the back burner at least?

Like I've mentioned earlier the story treatment is already written and I have roughs for the first chapter. It's still fun and I hope people will enjoy it - the only issue is to secure enough time and energy to give it a kick it deserves.
