Videogame art show parties hit New York and Toronto photo

The good people at Attract Mode have not one, but two big gallery shows for you to have. The first is No Quarter 2013, which opens this Friday at NYU's Game Center at  the Tisch School of the Arts, 721 Broadway on the 9th floor. So what's going to be there? Well for starters, there will be gallery art based on games like Nidhogg and Deep Sea on display,  and brand new games by the likes of Sophie Houlden (Swift * Stitch, Leaper) and Bennett Foddy (QWOP, Winner Vs. Loser) for the playing. The event is being sponsored by the Brooklyn Brewery, so there will also be beer. It's free and open to the public but you may want to RSVP. 

The second show is planned for less than a week later in Toronto. Comics Vs. Games 2 features all new games-based artwork from Natasha Allegri (Adventure Time) Zac Gorman (Magical Game Time) Lindsay Collins (Cat Girl Without Salad) and many more. The show opens on Thursday, May 9th at 7pm at #100–862 Richmond St W. It's the start of a larger event from Bento Miso called Bit Bazaar, featuring exhibitions by Drinkbox, Christine Love, and tons of other beloved videogame types. Why not make a whole weekend of it? It's like PAX Canada, except it wont cost you 20-50 hamburgers worth of your hard earned cash to attend.

It's classy fun times for people that want the good stuff.

Review: Pneuma: Breath of Life

Pneuma: Breath of Life is, through and through, a creationist tale. There's no theory of evolution, carbon dating, or Darwinism to cause debate. It's one god and the world that he brought into existence mere seconds earlier. As it turns out, being the only inhabitant of a world is a dull affair.more

Y2K is a surrealist fantasy told through the lens of a Murakami-loving hipster

Y2K began with protagonist Alex Eggleston returning to his his hometown from college. I watched him gaze out of bus windows until the scene shifted to him sharing a seat with a man in a panda costume. This was jarring enough to give Alex reason to look completely shaken and offended, and as the jaunty soundtrack suggested, should have felt super quirky and weird. It didn't.more

Slain! is an homage to a particular kind of gothic, gory classic

We are not wanting for loving pixel art in this nostalgia-fueled retro renaissance, but Slain!'s Gothic horror manages to stand out the same way the sort of off kilter Altered Beast or Castlevania still do. Before "pixel art...more
