Horizon Shine: Watch The Secret Best Conference Of E3

It’s more or less over. In the wake of E3’s publishing behemoth mega-rumble, Los Angeles lies in ruins – buildings stomped flat like ant hills beneath the feet of roughhousing children. Microsoft, Sony, Ubisoft, EA, and Nintendo have all taken their rooster-like struts down the stage, and now millions lie dead or worse: in some sort of physical retailer, placing pre-orders. But that’s not everybody. One major player has yet to roll out its cavalcade of announcements, demos, and trailers. Last year Venus Patrol’s Horizon, the “alternative gaming conference,” quietly stole the show with wonderfully charming games ranging from Double Fine’s Broken Age to Capy’s Below to hole-based puzzler Kachina which is KILLING ME BY STILL NOT BEING OUT, DAMN IT. What lies in store this year? Horizon will begin streaming at 10 AM PT / 6 PM RPS time. Let’s find out together.

    Sweet, thanks for this. Now I don’t have to sift through it all to find something I think will be interesting

  2. InternetBatman says:

    Speaking of Broken Age, does anyone know when the second one is coming?

      Last I checked, I believe the goal was “end of 2014.”

    “She was sat in a cupboard,aged 20 wondering what to do with the res of her day, never mind the rest of her life.”

    That’s me right about now. :/

  4. Wedge says:

    I tuned in and there’s a video of some swedish guy from the 90’s sitting on his bed rambling about smoking in his game. Not impressed.

    • Rollin says:

      That awful video began autoplaying while I wasn’t even in the same tab. I got a fright and wondered why there was some man talking to me in my room.

  5. Dorga says:

    Wow, incredible conference, every game was interesting, all the while being incredibly spontaneous, MS and Sony learn a thing or two.

    • Frank says:

      Sony is well represented here, by Media Molecule (contracted from now ’til infinity) and Honeyslug (heretofore exclusive to Sony platforms).

  6. dontnormally says:

    I think I would prefer it if RPS would write up a summary.

  7. Frank says:

    Bah. I wish the Indie Fund would up its game so that Sony were no longer able to buy out good artsy folks for console exclusives. (In this video: Media Molecule, Honeyslug. Also: thatgamecompany)

    Tearaway looks great. If I had a Vita I’d certainly play it.
