Chasmic Rush – A Mazing 3D Flyer – iPhone Gameplay Trailer Released
I thought long and hard about what to release as a video trailer for Chasmic Rush.
I looked at videos of several other iPhone games on Youtube to see what kinds of tactics they use in a trailer to build up a sense of excitement:
- telling a story with lots of fancy transitions, interspersed with gameplay
- playing lots of really loud music
- big words to show controls
- showing graphics that have nothing to do with the game
In the end I decided to simply show the gameplay, with the slight twist of rewinding back at the beginning to communicate that the Chasm is a finite maze, and you have to fly through it.
The goal is to offer players a unique challenge over and above “Infinite Runner” style games, in a carefully designed maze that balances out positive and negative space which makes it more interesting to play.
Hope you like it.
