It’s not always easy to create a good protagonist in a video game. With Perception, though, The Deep End decided to make its protagonist blind, which offered its own kind of challenge. The final product, though, is a fun adventure game that offers a unique gameplay experience. In an interview, The Deep End’s Amanda Gardner discussed the unique challenge of bringing the game to life, as well as talked a little bit about the background of the company.
Hang on to your hats, comic book fans. DC Entertainment has teamed up with Archie Comics to bring the ultimate girl power meet-up in a brand new series, Harley & Poison Ivy Meet Betty & Veronica. Paul Dini and Marc Andreyko will serve as writers for the series, with art by Laura Braga. “It’s the sort of offer you scream out ‘YES!’ to before your eyes reach the middle of the email,” Dini said in a press release.
It might not seem like a good idea to make a protagonist in a video game blind, especially with games being such visual mediums. Yet The Deep End Games created Perception, which somehow takes that concept and makes it work. Perception uses the idea of echolocation, which gives the protagonist a cane that allows the player to “see” its surrounding environment. It’s a brilliant idea and serves as the main focus of gameplay.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
