Evil Eye (Free Online Game you can play in your browser) (Physics Puzzler) V.1

evil eye shot title

Click on the Image above to play the game.

I have decided that before I program my epic RPG, I should do a few simpler games first. First up is ‘Evil Eye’. Guide the eye to the blue pad! The intinal release has 16 levels and can be compleated in 10 to 20 minutes depending on how good you are with puzzle games. Try to get the lowest score by blitzing the game. The lower the score the more epic you are. If people like this game I will continue working on it. I will ads more levels and a leaderboards with fastest times in the future.

Please note. This game has NO ads, in app purchases, or any other freemium bs.

This game will work in any browser, even mobile phones and tablets. Note: you need a phone with a decent size screen to play this. I would recommend playing on a computer or tablet.

Features:

16 Levels

Nice graphics

Timer for speedruns

Gravity based puzzles

Can play the game on any browser

My Favorite Video Games of All time! (as of 8-2014) (And Now For Something Completely Different)

cols4i

Fan art doodle  of Shadow of the Colossus #4 by Me

These are the games that I love and had a great impact on me. These are games that I have played many times (It is extremely rare I will play a game more then once). Feel free to recommend to me any awesome games in the comments section. Please don’t ask me why I didn’t put ‘your favorite game’ on this list but feel free to recommend the game to check out.

Also forgive my crazy grammar and lousy journalism. I’m an artist, not a novelist. I am also tired. I will learn English one day. This list will be updated when I learn to read.

So let’s start the countdown:

11- The Elder Scrolls: Morrowind

Fantastic world design, and a deep leveling system made this game a addiction! I got to play as a scaly lizard, few RPGs give you that option.

10- The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past.

Long before Elders Scrolls, this was the first action RPGs that made me feel like I was exploring a world. The ‘Dark World” was a pleasant surprise. I’m certain there is a dragon in there somewhere..

9- Super Metroid

I love open games that let me explore, Metroid was one of the first to get me addicted to ‘metroidvania’ genre. It also has Ripley in it, a space dragon.. don’t say anything..

8-Final Fantasy X

I was torn between which FF game to add to this list but Final Fantasy X won out with it’s fantastic story and ‘sphere’ like leveling system. The soundtrack still haunts my soul. It also has dragons in it (I am sensing a pattern)

7-Deus Ex

Deus Ex was the first shooter that made me realize a shooter can be deep and more the just putting bullets into everything. (I want dragons!)

6-Bio Shock

Has one of the greatest plot twists in any video game. My mouth dropped to the floor. (Wheres the dragons?!)

5-Amnesia: The Dark Decent

One the few games that truly terrorized me. The face of the monster is so horrifying I will never get it out of my cranium. (There is no dragons in it, disappointing… This joke is starting to dragon..)

4- Super Mario Kart

Mode 7 never looked so good. I can still eat ‘Rainbow Road’ for breakfast. (Bowser is kinda a dragon turtle thing..)

3- Dark Souls

Brutal but fair, a fantastic game that acutely improves your gaming skills You will die a lot but it is far from impossible. I’ve Beat it twice so far.  I still use Mega Ornstine’s name as a swear word. (ps: it has a dragon it. Note to self: seek medical help)

2- Chrono Trigger

A great story with fantastic music, and a cast of characters you actually gave a damn about. To bad they botched the series with the sequel. (Here be dragons!)

1- Shadow of the Colossus

A deep emotional game with fantastic atmosphere. The more colossi you kill, the more you question if you are doing the right thing. The game fills you with guilt from slaying these majestic beasts. If you don’t feel guilty  killing the 13th colossus, you have no soul. The music is truly haunting. I’ve played this game at least 10 times, I still feel guilty killing the Colossi to this day. I still hate the @#$# horse. (If there was a dragon in it, I would pay it to eat the horse) AGRO!!!!!!!

Honorable Mentions of commercial games that I think are fantastic:

Dark Souls II – If Demon Souls and Darks Souls had a baby – This would be it’s offspring.

Metal Gear Solid – A ‘solid’ entry in the series. derp derp.

Kings Field VI (A 3d Dark Souls no one has ever played)

Silent Hill 2 – Men with Pyramid heads scare me

ICO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! – It’s like shadow of the Colossus.. minus the colossus…

Half Life – The Freeman will save us all!

Devil May Cry – Dante might not cry but you will.

Final Fantasy 6 – Still better then FF7

Final Fantasy 9 – Its like six but it’s nine!

Final Fantasy 7 (PS1 version) – I love it but it’s still insanely overrated.

Dragon Quest (It has dragons in it YAY!)

Portal – The cake is truth.

Castlevania : Symphony of the Night -One castlevainia to rule them all!!

The Dark Spire – A love letter to Wizardy

Chrono Cross (A love-hate relationship)

Braid – Your a monster!

Limbo – Doing silhouettes before silhouettes where cool

Resident Evil 4 – Fantastic game, made the GameCube worth buying… what!? they have a PS2 version as well?! GRRRRRRRRRRRRRR!

Halo 3 – Only because JD will kill me if I do not list it here.

Halo 3 ODST – A Hub based Halo!? Someone pinch me! I must be dreaming!

Metroid Prime Trilogy – Metroidvaina in 3d

Pokemon Mystery Dungeon – A rouge-like Pokemon. Sign me up!

Wizardry 5 (SNES) – This game still drives me crazy

Mega Man Legends 2 – Hey! There is Metroidvaina in my Mega Man!

Skyrim – I only like it because it has dragons in it… Seriously.

Omimusha: Warlords – the ending was ‘eye popping!’  lol!

Super Hexagon – Dark Souls: Arcade edition

Kings Quest 4 – when point and click adventures where for manly men (and women)

Wolfenstine  3D – Basically Doom.

The Secret of Monkey Island – I miss Lucasarts :( Curse you Disney!

Commercial Games I do not like:

The Call of Duty games – Gives ‘repetition’ and ‘hand holding’ a new meaning. Multiplayer is fun though.

Any mobile game made by EA – Lets just hope your not a whale.

Halo 1,2, and 4 -So sue me fan boys.

GTA 3 and GTA 4 – How can ‘perfection’ be so boring?

Final Fantasy 7 (PC)- I was unfortunate enough to buy the PC version, it is a buggy mess. It’s nice to see Square Enix care about it’s PC fans (Sarcasm). Still leaves a sour taste in my mouth

Every Angry Birds sequel – The casual Call of Duty. It’s a shame Angry Birds is a one trick pony.

Candy Crush Saga – Whale manipulation simulator. (MMM TASTY!)

Any Sonic the Hedgehog game after 3 – I gave up on the blue bomber years ago.

And that’s it. You might not agree with my selection of games that I love and hate..and I respect that. Let me know what your favorite game is and why.

Monster Concept (Wip) and other concept doodles

mon-alien-finished-5

I was trying to boost my concept work. Still have some work to do on this one. I’m getting better at painting creatures. A good animal anatomy book does wonders. Also in this post is a design for my co protagonist named Alex. He is a dragon want’s to be a human (a inverted otherkin :D) and can transform himself in one for a short amount of time.  He is.. awkward and has trouble fitting in with either humans or his kind. some armor for females. and  very cool monster concept

I was commissioned to draw a sheet of action poses. This is one of the funnest commissions I have done so far. Gar is one of the best clients I have worked with.

Here are the roughs:

Artwork as Stone Draken

I did a experiment and joined a few popular galleries under the name Stone Draken. I was bored with my name (Maugryph), people are having trouble remembering it, and I wanted to see how people would react to my art under a new name (aka. not knowing who I am). It was positive, however after a few weeks I came to the conclusion that the name is stupid and closed the gallery. (wasted $2 purchasing the domain name ) here is the artwork I did in those two weeks. I also did two requests for some reason. Why? because I’m an idiot. I’m still figuring  our a new name.
