On Cephalapods And Other Matters
Indie type Miguel Sternberg sends word of a new batch of games at Toronto-based Artsy Games Incubator (which I initially read as Arsey Games Incubator). These include a multiplayer sequel to his own Night of the Cephalopods, which I do like very much. The two-player game, Cephalopods Co-op Cottage Defence, sees "a lady scientist, her clockwork valet" - which looks like a cat in a hat and monocle - defending their cottage from floating evil octopi. Use a shotgun to kill the cephalapods, and a hammer to repair the barricades. Can you survive until dawn? Probably not if you're playing two-handed like me. Best wait for housemates to turn up and play. In the meantime, go browse the rest of the Artsy games.
