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.

Strafe is the goriest, most realistic shooter of 1996

I am tempted to just post the email we got about Strafe (stylized as STRAFE®), because it is a masterpiece of videogame marketing. With phrases like "not for the faint of heart" and "we understand if our game is too real...more

Ironically, the Kickstarter for Hollow Knight looks solid

I have had my eye on Hollow Knight for a few days, but had not yet pulled the trigger on highlighting it. It is a pretty 2D action game (though the color palette is a bit muted for my taste) starring some sort of insect-pers...more
