Hubris is a singleplayer experience in the same vein as Dear Esther or The Graveyard in that it strives to provoke a set of emotions through minimalist mechanics. Hubris, in particular, attempts to instill a sense of the sublime. The technique attempted to evoke this feeling is a gradual escalation of scale and scope, so that at each subsequent turn the player says "wow."

Sites have posted about Hubris, my response to its response, and a potential future.

I'm amazed at how much attention Hubris has received. Two articles have already appeared on some pretty cool sites!

I'd had the file sitting around for some time and figured I should try widening its audience a download or two when I uploaded it here. It's just a standalone level, after all, and there's not much to it. But apparently releasing it here was a good idea!

In any case, some people have been asking for a more polished future release with more content and a menu interface. I'd personally like to see it released in a more manageable file size, though I think this is currently a limitation of UDK. However, at the moment I'm busy with other projects and activities (mainly university) so I've not considered a future release. But spring break approaches, who knows how I could make use of that time?

If you're interested in following me and my other projects and want regular updates, you should check out my Design Blog or my Twitter.



i bookmarked your blog, glad you are responding to the suggestions of the users - i'll have a look again when you've added some sort of menu. "But spring break approaches, who knows how I could make use of that time?" well, well... would be nice if you'd continue that project - it deserves the spotlight imho! :)
