About MediaShake

@MediaShake 

We are honoured to have been accepted for Tranzfuser. When we started this project we would have never imagined we would have so many opportunities to share our vision and chase our dreams. We believe that thanks to all the people that believed in us, we can develop our ideas to their full potential and are excited to let the world play our game and enjoy it.

About the project

Project S.A.M. is a 2D pixel art rogue-like centred around skill-based exploration. Together with your trusty companion SAM (Scouting Automated Machine), you will be among the first to set foot in the abandoned outskirts of the Zion, the city that isolated itself from the outside world for millennia chasing technological progress. But, as the explorers of Zion will soon find out, progress always comes with a cost. Will you be able to survive and find out all the secrets of the outside world? Or will you perish trying?

As Falmouth University Graduates who have been working together for three years now, we are so grateful for this exciting opportunity to push our team of six to the next level. By combining the magical and the natural, we are trying to create engaging, exciting, and immersive gameplay that tackles environmental issues. Our goal is to create a game that is both beautiful and didactic.


About the project

Set up as a third person, adventure game, SAI takes you into a mystical forest under attack from multiple onslaughts of machines harvesting from this once holy place. As a Druid, called to protect the forest, you must harness the power of the land and uncover its dark past. In a world of magic, mystery, and destruction, the remarkable Heart Tree stands at its core. Save it at all cost.

Paper Pirates: Ghost Ship is a digital social deduction game for a team of four to ten players. The team need to sail their ship to shore, keeping hold of all their treasures. The catch? The ship is haunted, and the ghosts are trying to throw all the treasure overboard! Players connect to the TV with their phones, so everyone can play, and when you think you’re on to a ghost? Time to throw them overboard! Don’t make a mistake though – every innocent pirate thrown overboard comes back to haunt someone anew… How well do you trust your friends?

About the project

A story of discovery, as four characters find themselves in a world where beliefs become reality under the effects of the Hypochondrinomicon. It doesn’t take long for our heroes to discover the dangers of the book and its effects, as monsters born from illusions, and humans who have fallen victim to them come forth. The choices you are given will bring your heroes closer together, or create rifts between them.
You will outsmart your enemies with the game’s unique puzzle-based battle system, where you must strategise your attack based on the enemy’s moves.
