Jeff Minter, the man behind the upcoming aural-psychadelia-turned-video-game, Space Giraffe, kicked off the Independent Games Summit, here at GDC just a short while ago. He talked at great length about the upcoming game, and you have to admire the man's desire to differentiate himself from the rest of the development crowd. He seems absolutely hell-bent on doing things his way, and while we have no idea how successful that route may be, in this case, at the very least, it should make for an interesting development cycle.

Towards the end of his speech, he covered the idea of games as art and how they could possibly capture the hearts of the mainstream, and he firmly believes it's possible. Of course, he would prefer that the mainstream come to accept games such as his as art, as opposed to the multi-million dollar iterations of Madden that EA expels every year or so.

Also, on a personal note, I desperately want to hide things in Jeff's beard. Like, tiny race cars and army men and stuff like that. It's off topic, but if you had seen the man's beard, you'd understand.

Have you played Rhythm Doctor?

How have I missed Rhythm Doctor? We gave it a brief mention last year, but I guess I missed that. The first I heard of it was last week at GDC. Walking past the IGF booth, I saw a guy with headphones on, bobbing his head while mashing a huge button. Curious, I walked over. I saw an on-screen cardiograph and a little samurai bobbing its little head. I was hooked from there. more

World of Tanks in 2014: Mobile MMO, new PC engine, console updates coming

I met with Wargaming boss Victor Kislyi last week in a dark, quiet, private meeting room on the GDC expo floor on an early morning following what was probably the biggest party of the week. The chief executive looked surprisi...more
