Cell: emergence Demo Emerges From… Its Cell? I Dunno

By John Walker on February 8th, 2012.

Hopefully this image will clear it up.

Cell: emergence, the experimental medical shooter puzzle… thing from Deus Ex writer Sheldon Pacotti and his team at New Life Interactive (who really sound like they should make Christian games), is out tomorrow. And if you want to try to get your head around one of the most peculiar games in recent times, there’s a demo. I’ve been having a play of it, and will speak my thoughts about it when it’s out. But I can assure you while it’s not as complicated to play as it appears, it’s every bit as strange. It will be on GamersGate amongst others from tomorrow, where it will cost the peculiar price of £8.05. Take a look at the demo – it’s well worth a look.

Insane In The Membrane? Cell: emergence

By John Walker on February 1st, 2012.

This is in your tummy RIGHT NOW.

You may remember that a few months back we told you about Cell: emergence, the extremely peculiar-looking game from Deus Ex writer Sheldon Pacotti’s indie team, New Life Interactive. The fantastic voyage is a pixelly exploration of cellular defense, that looks equal parts fascinating and bemusing. Referencing classic games like Defender and Missile Command, and alluding to RTS themes, the experimental project asks you to protect a membrane via manipulation of the medicinal voxels. I’d suggest that watching the video below might explain things better, but I’m fairly sure I know less about the game having watched it. It’s something we need to play to get our heads around, and the good news is it’s out on the 9th Feb, via GamersGate, Impulse, Green Man Gaming, Playism and Desura. And there will be a demo on Tuesday.

Cell: emergence Is Voxelly, Confusing

By John Walker on August 11th, 2011.

Well, I don't think this requires any further explanation.

You know what’s good? When the writer of the first two Deus Ex games announces he has an indie project coming out in a couple of months. That is what is good. Sheldon Pacotti is the man behind the peculiarly capitalised Cell: emergence, which is news that Eurogamer brings us as having been announced today. Which is odd, since the video has been around for a couple of months now, and the game was announced in September last year. Maybe there was a long-delayed echo? But we’re hardly one to mock them, since we didn’t cover it back then either.
