Tripleslash Studios, with their inaugural game “Magnetic By Nature,” is breaking all the rules when it comes to art and physics in video-game design. “The market is saturated by many of the same game concepts,” said Kyle Chittenden, a graduate student in the EAE program and game artist. “As an indie studio, we push innovation to broaden the entire game industry and to produce games that are new and fresh.” In the game, players can propel their automaton through colorful, art-deco-inspired environments using the magnetic fields from different types of magnets to avoid dangers and advance through the levels. Developed by a team of six artists and four programmers, “Magnetic by Nature” is equal parts visual treat and mechanics masterpiece.
