The thrilling video games and interactive experiences on show at PLAY18
Final week, I as soon as once more attended the annual PLAY pageant in Hamburg, Germany. Alongside workshops and informative talks, the occasion included an exhibition of latest and unreleased experimental video games and installations. As you’ll anticipate, propaganda, fascism, and intrusion into the personal sphere have been matters addressed by most of the video games on present, however some have been extra whimsical and fantastical. As at PLAY17 with the memorable “match as controller” recreation, video games that do not use a typical controller have been out in full power.
Through the occasion, I popped into the exhibition corridor a few instances to play and observe the video games on present. I used to be delighted to lastly play an excellent chunk of Not Tonight, however because it obtained plenty of protection only a few months in the past, I’ll depart it out of this record. Sadly, I haven’t got the house to speak about all the good video games on present, so listed here are a number of highlights.
