So, we have been busy scouring who will be exhibiting and 5 games We think are worth a note are;
- RIOT – Civil Unrest: A game that explores the flash-points in public demonstrations
- Line Wobbler: A great 1d Dungeon crawler game, with a brilliantly innovative control interface.
Man or Goat: Pure comedy. iOS game which requires the player to discern whether or not the sounds they are hearing are that of a Man or a Goat!
Quiet as a Stone: A beautiful and atmospheric exploration and building game. A visual and audible treat.
Kill Box: Investigates the implications behind Northern Pakistan Drone strikes.
As well as the aforementioned games we are going to be delving deep into the Rezzed and Leftfield arenas. Plus we’re really looking forward to catching some Cosplay, some of the costume design, i’m sure will be stunning.
