It’s like Where’s Waldo on LSD
Over seven years ago, a visual artist began a lifelong project. Now, the ForeverScape has become a painting 18 stories tall or longer than Titanic. It started as a ballpoint ink drawing and evolved into a vast, colorful psychedelic landscape. Some parts of the visual epic poem are downright grotesque. The piece is complex, evolutionary and full of dark humor. The creator, Vance Feldman, promises to keep adding to the piece for as long as he can. After a successful Kickstarter campaign, the artist hunkered down and developed the app himself.
Shortly after the 1.0 release, Vance discovered that users explored the artwork for long periods of time, so he decided to go the extra mile and create a game. He worked evenings and weekends to create the gameplay, characters, dialog and levels. Made entirely by one person, the game is like a window into his warped mind. The artwork is so vast, even the artist has re-discovered hidden objects while creating the levels. There’s always some little surprising sub-plot within the bigger scene.
The Evil Eraser Gang is hot on your tail. Snarky, and potty-mouthed animated characters goad you along as you explore over 1,000 pages full of crazy scenes and objects. The Hidden Object genre usually avoids such risqué territory and the Mature Audience rating this game deserves. It’s dark, even menacing sometimes. You have a time limit to help Finder Freddy collect a set of items. With each level, you progressively move through the world and discover objects in new scenes that blend together. The game can be quite challenging at times; boosters and clues are there to help you when you’re stuck. You don’t even have to play the game: users can freely explore and even leave comment tags on the artwork like Google Maps, or even read the Artist’s comments and find links to videos of him creating certain sections.
