A Glitch In Time: DEIOS

Interactive album

Sometimes a game is so startling in appearance that I don't want to know how it plays lest the illusion of something new be shattered. DEIOS is such a game. It looks like the game equivalent of something like William Basinski's Disintegration Loops, a collection of ordinary things degraded to the point of abstract anxiety and mechanical melancholy. DEIOS is intentionally degraded though, every glitch hand-crafted, and it looks wonderful, like a cross between Sword & Sorcery EP, Another World and something else entirely. More images and video below.

You now know as much about how DEIOS plays as I do. Glitchscape exploration with bouts of single-screen god-shooting action? Sounds about right.

Available now, DEIOS can be yours for a minimum payment of $4.98 in Australian money. You'll receive an hour and a half long album for your dosh as well.

Thanks to Indiestatik.
