DO YOU LIKE THE BURNING FEELING FROM STARING TOO LONG AT SCREENS? HAVE YOU EVER THOUGHT TO YOURSELF "YOU KNOW, THERE'S NOT ENOUGH AGGRESSIVE GLITCH AESTHETICS IN MY LIFE"? DO YOU LIKE SURREAL STORIES AND FUN GAMES? CAN YOU GIVE ME YOUR CREDIT CARD?
I'm Daniel, lead here at Forward Instinct, a team of creators spread out throughout the USA, who make games together. You may know us from:
DAEMON, a wild 3 day Cyberpunk LARP that blended together AR with squad based combat successfully funded through Kickstarter and played by 100 people who all didn't realize we were recording the insides of the headsets for sweat analysis.
DAEMON: The Documentary, a 2 hour movie documenting the process behind bringing DAEMON to life and how it all went down, including that one time I tripped and ate shit in an alley.
MIDNIGHT ULTRA, a hazy, nightmarish trip across the desert hunting witches, as featured in Rock Paper Shotgun. That magenta game people complained "hurt my eyes too much" and "only had one giant yeti whose eyeballs exploded so you could climb inside its skull to fight its alien tumor brain".
We've been around since 2015 and have had our work featured in Rock Paper Shotgun, PCGamesN, PC Gamer, and Next Reality News. We love making weird and eerie games with innovative aesthetics and rock solid, fun mechanics. Typically, our games usually come from unexamined niches, landscapes, characters, and points of view to facilitate intriguing stories and art direction meshed with gameplay from our favorite classic games and experimental, bleeding edge design.
We hope you enjoy our games and tell your friends. Thanks so much!
-The Forward Instinct Team.
