IGF Factor 2014: Gorogoa

By John Walker on March 11th, 2014.

In today’s stop-and-search inspection of the IGF Award finalists, we grab Jason Roberts – creator of Gorogoa – out of the line, fling him against the wall, and pat him down for answers. Gorogoa is the spellbinding story in which four windows can be rearranged to create new pathways, which is essentially magic.

Hands On: Gorogoa, A Puzzle Game About Pictures

By Graham Smith on December 4th, 2013.

Let me explain this to you.

Stop. Look. Listen. Think. Gorogoa is a puzzle game which is part room escape, part jigsaw, part comic book, and in which your every action re-contextualises its imagery and expands your perception. It is serene, mind-expanding and best of all exciting.

Let me explain more. This makes no sense until I’ve explained it more.

Watch: Binding Of Isaac-Ish Wizard’s Lizard, Promising Indies

By Nathan Grayson on November 20th, 2013.

Pictured: Cyberpunk death competition Gunsport and creator Brandon Sheffield TOTALLY SELLING OUT to Doritos and, um, Pabst Blue Ribbon. In an art gallery.

I recently attended a San Francisco indie event called Good Game Club, and it was, er, good. There were games as far as the eye could see… well, except for where the walls were dotted, spotted, and blotted with art. It took place in an art gallery, though, so that – arguably *a little* more so than rows of clickity clacking PC game terminals – kinda goes with the territory. While there, I came across a few especially tantalizing standouts, so I decided to snap some quick (and, let’s face it, not particularly pretty) videos of each. Soon I will transform RPS’ videos into truly unique, attractive snowflakes (read: they’ll probably all just be hosted by cats), but until then enjoy some raw, gritty-as-a-mouthful-of-cat-litter¬†Guerrilla¬†Video. The games on display include the Binding-of-Isaac-ish (but with a dual-world twist) Wizard’s Lizard, gorgeous-looking story puzzler Gorogoa, local multiplayer retro cyberclash Gunsport, and minimal wonder Videoball.

Windows 2013: Gorogoa

By Alec Meer on October 12th, 2012.

the more I think about it the more I realise the Terry Gilliam comparison I made was nonsense

If Terry Gilliam was a bit more of a softie and made videogames, they probably wouldn’t sell very well and would be increasingly disappointing as he got older. They might also look a bit like Jason Roberts’ Gorogoa, a rather pretty, painterly take on the middleground between room escape games and point and click adventures.
