Indie Hour - The Howler

Feast your eyes on the beautiful hand-drawn environments and then wipe them as you laugh at Ed and Jess' efforts playing this voice-controlled ballooning puzzler. You will see how video games can make us cry on this episode of Indie Hour!

Two commentators trying to narrate a game which is controlled by the volume of their voices = some really hilarious interactions.

Interesting concept. Normally I already have problems with games because of the sound, most of the time I use headphones, this would be a game that I'd very rarely be able to play (at least using the voice mode, and without voice mode this game is pointless imo.)

Also, it may just be me but I'm really getting tired of "beautiful hand-drawn environments". To be honest if I wasn't told that these games are hand-drawn I wouldn't know. Which begs the question, does it even matter how it's drawn? The only way I could see it matter to some people is if they have something against computer technology, but then these are computer games so that doesn't really work out.

I think it does respond to pitch, I noticed the balloon rising faster when Jess was "singing". The game looks fun and silly, looking forward to trying it out probably because you two made it look so entertaining and terrifying at the same time. :)

@skipper1993 @InquisitorCrox Well, I'm a professional games journalist so I doubt you'll "see it" any time soon =]

You'll catch more flies with honey, you know.
