"The electric things have their life too. Paltry as those lives are."
~ Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? Philip K. Dick (1968)
This was written at an age when computers were not yet widespread and the internet was just being conceived. It remains relevant nevertheless. Would you consider Pokémon and Tamagotchis as living electric things?
This is our philosophy at 5¼ Games.
When we set out to make a video-game, we are not simply coding a mere game, we are creating a living, breathing world with real, emotion-filled characters and involving, compelling story-lines which deliver to the player a rich, satisfying, fulfilling and relevant experience. In a sense, our games are our electric, mind children.
And they should consider themselves lucky to be born into such a rich and diverse family. Their parents come from all walks of life and cover a very wide range of the skills required in successful video-game rearing. Game developers, 2D and 3D artists, programmers, script-writers, music composers, marketeers and testers. All of us have come together in an attempt to raise to adulthood our fledgling ideas for video-games, and we are determined to see it through.
So don't ever forget that you read this cheesy page. Our games might be famous in the future! And if it doesn't live, well then again, who does?
