Crowman and Wolfboy hijacks my brain with darkness


7:00 PM on 04.14.2012



If you watched this year's That's Adorbale video, then you already know that one of my favorite things about PAX is the people. The other big selling point of the event is the games, but not in the way that you necessarily think. 

What I love about PAX is that it's the only event that really gives me the special feeling I used to get when visiting a brand new, real life Video Arcade. Back in the 80's and 90's, gamers would travel miles across the country to find the arcades that had the most rare and unusual games. Stumbling upon these types of games for the first time in the wild would elicit amazing feeling of discovery, something that I'm not sure that anyone who has brought up on the Internet can fully conceive of. It was like spotting a shiny Pokemon for the first time, only more awesome, because it was actually happening in your life, and not in a virtual plain of tall grass.

That's how I felt when I literally bumped into Crowman and Wolfboy on the show floor while headed to an appointment. I wasn't expecting to make friends with an all new black-and-white cartoon platformer about escaping from inevitable death, but there it was. It was like the first time I saw Chiller, only not as terrifying. It felt great. Via la Video Arcade! Viva la PAX!
