Above is a new screen from developer David S. Gallant’s upcoming game ‘I Get This Call Every Day’. Gallant is a Canadian Game Dev, with a wonderful sense of humor, a knack for style, and an awesome list of flash games. He’s easily contactable on the Twit spaces and is a real friendly fella.
Regardless of all my pimping out of a great, accessible, and sexy dev, he is making the game pictured above. It is a point-and-click based around his government job. You work as someone who handles phone calls from the citizens of Canada, where you have to deal with the ridiculous monotony and paperwork associated with working in a bureaucratic system. I think I got that right, or at least was close to the main message of the game. Regardless of that message, it promises to be as hilarious as a game only David could make.
I am most excited about the personal aspects of the game. Indie games are not only an opportunity to create a video game, but also are a means for personal expression. I know, from conversations with David, that he honestly believes with the accessibility of indie game dev programs we will begin seeing more games involving personal expression. David’s new game, ‘I Get This Call Every Day’, is a fantastic example of letting others experience one’s life through personal expression, and I appreciate the willingness to be open with one’s daily life very much.
So check out David on Twitter, play his games, and stay tuned for updates on ‘I Get This Call Every Day’. I know I will be anxiously awaiting its release.
