Indie devs and artists unite for Comics Vs. Games


7:30 PM on 04.30.2012



If you are in Toronto this week, you might want to scoot on by the Comics vs. Games exhibition, hosted by TIFF Nexus and led by They Bleed Pixels creator Miguel Sternberg. The main draw of the event is a set of five games, each co-developed by a duo consisting of a game dev and a comic artist. The games, as showcased in the video above, range from a Victorian-era, turn-based RPG to a twin-stick shooter starring Elvis Presley, Jimi Hendrix, Amy Winehouse, and Tupac Shakur.

In addition, the exhibition features an art showcase, hosted by game culture shop Attract Mode. Guests include Ashley Davis, Chris Furniss, Zac Gorman, Maré Odomo, Cory Schmitz, and others, contributing pieces based on Comix Zone, Journey, Gitaroo Man, Uncharted, No More Heroes... you name it!

The Magic Pony gallery will play host to Comics Vs. Games through May 3, after which the Toronto Comics Art Festival will take over on May 5 and 6.

Starbound update includes new race, new combat, new universe

Wow. It has been a long time. I thought that maybe I had missed a stable update somewhere along the line, but by Chucklefish's own admission, this is the first one since last March. To take a step back, development on Starbo...more

Samurai Gunn gets free big update, Mac release

Samurai Gunn is great. It's a mainstay in my living room, especially with the backwards compatible PS1 taking a dive (no more convenient Bushido Blade). I also gave it a 2014 game of the year award even though...more
