Uplift: The Game, The Name

Small Uplift image

Perhaps something like this?

Working on a game concept: codename Uplift.

Where did the name “Uplift” come from? There are a few reasons, that make sense.

  • One of the main mechanics is lifting large blocks of stone and earth.
  • It involves elevating unintelligent creatures to intelligence, technology, and civilization.
  • It is intended as a step between Minecraft and Fledgeling, an attempt to raise the expectations of gamers without attempting any mind-breaking leaps.

Further details forthcoming!

About dudecon

I'm a Christian, one of the "crazy fundamentalist" ones perhaps, depending on what language you speak. As an engineer by trade, and an artist, computer wizard, and musician in the off hours, I keep pretty busy. Plus I'm married with kids. Life is good, even when it is hard. People tell me that I think too much, but I can't think of how that's a bad thing. People also tell me I'm scary. Occasionally they tell me to stop singing so loudly. If you really want to contact me, you can try e-mailing dudecon on my old fashioned Hotmail account. Or tweet dudecon on twitter. Or come to my house some time. I'm sure you can find me if you keep trying.
