Going To EGE? Hit The Indie Arcade!
This isn't a suggestion. It's a demand - a plea for you to throw off your preconceptions and explore one of the finest experimental gaming experiences if you're planning on hitting the Eurogamer Expo this weekend. Snuggled in the centre of the Indie Arcade (which is worth loitering around thanks to an outstanding lineup) lies an exceptional project from Terry Cavanagh, the creator of smash hit VVVVVV. It's a piece of interactive art that's frankly unlike anything you'll ever play.
The game itself is called At A Distance... and that's all I can tell you. Knowing anything about it will utterly destroy the entire point of the proceedings - and though I'll be reviewing it shortly, I'd urge you not to read it.
Skyrim, Battlefield 3 and the Playstation Vita are all worth playing... but they'll all be with us in a couple of months. At A Distance will probably never see a retail release - so just go and play it. Be sure to hit up the other indies if you have time!
