A Game Sandwich: Concursion

“Imagine a piñata filled with all your favorite games”, Concursion’s website suggests. Eager to comply, I closed my eyes and leaned back in my chair. A vision intruded like a mote into my mind’s eye – I saw Garrett hanging upside down from a tree as a masked figure beat him with a blackjack. Having disastrously misunderstood the concept of ‘piñata’, I turned my attention to a different image – a sandwich with my favourite games as the filling, the garnish and the bread. Great. Now I’m eating Garrett pastrami. Concursion aims to be just such a treat, combining genres into a single flowing experience. The video below shows top-down mazes, platforming, JRPG combat and side-scrolling shooting. That doesn’t cover any of my favourite games!

Did you see any of your favourite games? Although it will certainly be far more accomplished, the video makes Concursion look a bit like the sort of thing I tried to make in Klik N Play many years ago.

“Imagine if Turrican turned into Xenon half-way through a level!” I’d squeal to myself. And then I’d make Pong with a severed cartoon head instead of a (square) ball. Again.
