If you are visiting this site for the first time, you may be wondering what we’re all about here at Dyad games. Well, we have put together some frequently asked questions that no-one has asked us yet. So grab some Ramen and let’s have a chat.
Lee: I’m not really sure to be honest. Oh Wait, I remem…
Alex: We were at our friend’s house and both of us were playing flash games on our laptops when we came across a game called “Gangsta Bean 2.” We both found it incredibly hilarious and awesome all at the same time. We started joking around about making our own game.
Lee: Needless to say, us joking around led to us actually following through with a couple ideas that we had.
Lee: Like, how did we come up with the name?
Alex: We seriously didn’t have a name for like the first year. It wasn’t until a week and a half ago on January 15th, that we agreed on the name dyad.
Lee: We mainly chose it simply because it means a group of two.
Lee: I create the majority of the graphics you’ll see.
Alex: And I make it all work.
Lee: Pretty much.
Alex: But i mean we both collaborate on ideas. Sometimes though, we’ll fight over something really small for a long time until we reach an agreement. And for some reason it seems to always be about the size of an object. Like whether a target should be 50 pixels or 42.
Lee: Or that a certain rocket launcher is way too large for the character to carry and should be sized down.
Alex: Lee, now is not the time to discuss this.
Orie: Hey guys.
Lee: Oh hey!
Lee: Guys, this is Orie. He chimes in with fancy artwork as well as animation goodness.
Alex: Blizzard and Valve are incredible. Valve is always keeping in touch with thier community in Team Fortress 2 with mods, addressing the community and all around analyzing character classes and balancing the mechanics of the game. Blizzard uses time and effort to produce outstanding visual and core elements.
Lee: Ready for some cheese? It’s these guys i work with. Both of them have helped push me artistically for so many years. Whenever I’m in a creative rut, they always seem to have the right piece of criticism and encouragement I need to keep me going.
Lee: I would have to say the games that I grew up on. I would spend hours at a time playing the early Tony Hawk series. Also games like Starfox 64, Rogue Squadron, and then finally my favorite game through high school, NBA Street.
Alex: Same here, definitely Super Mario Bros. series along with the Mega Man series. So if our games start to seem impossible, it’s probably because of Mega Man.
Lee: Orie, what about you?
Orie: Halo. Halo. Oh, and Halo. No, but lately I’ve really enjoyed Titan Fall.
Alex: We’re currently all over the place at the moment.
Lee: There is a fifth dimension beyond that which is known to man. It is a dimension as vast as space and as timeless as infinity. It is the middle ground between light and shadow, between science and superstition, and it lies between the pit of man’s fears and the summit of his knowledge. This is the dimension of imagination. It is an area which we call the Twilight Zone.
