Stage 2: Record of the Delphi

Have we really not done one of these since 2010? Hopefully this makes up for the absence... I know it was just as much of a roller coaster ride (to hell) as the previous ones. Matt and I have been working on this for a while- we hope you enjoy watching it as much as we did making it.


The original plan was to debut this on YouTube for loading and sharing purposes, but we still haven't solved the frame rate and audio sync issues (we'll repost when we do). Massive thanks to Glen Schricker for helping out. As always, we owe so much to Rich Vreeland and the music of his one man army, Disasterpeace for allowing us to pillage his catalog. He is a symphonic assassin.


Here we go... Passcode: Record of the Delphi.


Edit: Now on Youtube.

  4. WHOA, that was really cool! Who did the voices for the speaking parts? It was really cool to see a block communicating, I've often wondered what their deal was. Kudos to you both for an awesome Passcode!!

  7. Wow. Well done with the added voice clips, the pacing, and the overall mood of this one! The question is, what will happen next? Will the Delphi return? Will other forces use this as an opportunity to strike? The possibilities...

  8. Oh man. The Super Metroid style really got me - I'm a little teary-eyed now. A lot of that emotional feel is timing everything to Rich's way great music which is this giant, active matrix of all 8-bit melody from my childhood! If you want more of that, you NEED this album - http://disasterpeace.com/album/fez . Listen to "Pressure" with good bass and speakers far apart to feel like you are inside a massive, rotating machine!

    Crap, I thought I'd have to be playing some Battletoads there for a second! You bastard! :P

  9. Still kind of blown away by this, will have to view it a couple more times. But two things come immediately to mind:
    - it's great to see the 8-bit art again, particularly the Armovors in that style. Nice work, Marc!
    - the Delphi have a master? I thought *they* were the master of all space/time. Dang, this just gets deeper and deeper.

  10. Wow, I'm blown away by this.

    You guys do such a good job at setting a story its unlike anything any company is doing. Unless you count toys from TV shows, except Matt and Co pull off a much better execution.

    I will say that out of all of the Passcodes this one was the easiest to show my girlfriend and for her to follow along. Congrats to the whole team on a successful release.

  11. Oh, that was too cool! Wonderful music - and the voiced elements were a real treat in the mix! Great work, gang.

    And I'm so glad I managed to grab an Armorvor & Rey before they sold out. :-)
