Thirty Flights of Loving is a first-person adventure video game developed by Brendon Chung's video game studio, Blendo Games. It was released in August 2012 for Microsoft Windows and in November 2012 for OS X. The game employs a modified version of id Software's id Tech 2 engine—originally used for Quake II—and incorporates music composed by Idle Thumbs member Chris Remo. An indirect sequel to Gravity Bone (2008), it features the same main character, an unnamed spy controlled by the player. The game follows the spy and two other people as they prepare for an alcohol heist and then deal with the aftermath of the failed operation. Unlike Gravity Bone, Thirty Flights of Loving employs non-linear storytelling, forcing the player to piece together the narrative. Thirty Flights of Loving was developed as part of the Kickstarter campaign for the revival of the Idle Thumbs podcast and includes a free copy of Gravity Bone. Thirty Flights of Loving received generally favorable reviews from video game journalists, scoring 88 out of 100 on the review aggregator Metacritic. A follow-up, Quadrilateral Cowboy, is scheduled for release in 2014. (Full article...)
