Energy Hook - Cool new indie game in development

Energy Hook's Kickstarter Page

Got a chance to see this in action and to hear a talk from the developer, Jamie Fristrom, at the Seattle Unity User group last night. He worked on Spider-Man 2 at Treyarch and has done some games for XBLA and PS Vita. His latest game is a Unity-powered little gem. Looks very fun and you can see the Spider-Man DNA spliced liberally into the game mechanics. Worth a look and if you can spare some cash, help him keep his project going.

Great looking game. I hope he gets a lot of support and makes the game he wants to make.
That Unity Game group sounds like a worthwhile social experience.

It definitely is, Ellis. I always learn something new or make a new connection at the Unity User group. My good friend Brandon Wu spearheads the User Group and he puts a lot of work into getting speakers, booking venues, etc. Found out last night Seattle has the most active user group, according to a representative from Unity.

I could fib and put Unity on the resume. I managed to load a sandbox of a proto-game I worked on. It's probably going to be the happening development tool for quite awhile.
I've got all the Tornado Twin's tutorials.
