Mind Dump 8-bit
While learning about the PS4 was great and everything the real lesson of that press conference was that the police aren’t there to protect us.
I’m constantly thinking about games and watching the Oscars last night got me thinking about art too. While increasingly cinematic games like Assassin’s Creed, Deus Ex, and even Warcraft seem like easy targets for film adaptations, my definition of an art game is still a game where the narrative of the interactivity is what matters.
Examples include: Frog Fractions, Curiosity, the Kanye West Twitter game, the upcoming Team Meat joint Mew-Genics and, of course, No-Apps The Game.
What if they made a summer camp where the kids could learn about game writing? That’d be weird.
Fire Emblem Awakening is pretty great.
