Tim Schafer

You’re already attending this year’s EGX Rezzed, of course. But if you haven’t yet booked your ticket to That London so you can play all them lovely games, here’s a piece of news that should cause you to get on that, post-haste. Double Fine’s Tim Schafer – he of the simian islands and the tentacular days – is going to headline the event, taking part in a Q&A with Eurogamer editor Oli Welsh, along with meet-and-greet sessions throughout the three-day shindig. That interview’s happening at 12pm BST on Friday 13th April, and will also be streamed live on Twitch, if you can’t make it to Rezzed.

EGX Rezzed 2018 unveils Leftfield Collection lineup

The best part of EGX Rezzed, the London-based games event in April run by our corporate siblings, is always the Leftfield Collection. I don’t know if The Man will allow me to say that, but it is. Come at me, The Man. Meet me in the car park and bring HR to referee. Leftfield is the showcase of smaller and stranger games curated by Feral Vector head honcho David Hayward, and it always has a pleasingly wide range of games. The Man today announced this year’s Leftfield lineup and yup, it’s a goodun. The fact that I don’t recognise half the games myself is exciting. Go, see, play, find out. Read the rest of this entry »

Hey, devs! EGX Rezzed 2018’s Leftfield Collection submission are now open

Hey, you: do you make video games? If so, nice. Thanks. Thank you for the video games. Keep it up. A follow-up: perhaps consider submitting your game for inclusion in the Leftfield Collection at EGX Rezzed in London next year. Rezzed is a games show organised by our adoptive corporate parent Gamer Network, and Leftfield is the best bit. It brings together, and I quote, “independently developed games and game-like projects that often defy genre classification.” Perhaps your game might fit? It’s free to submit games to the Leftfield so mebbe give it a think. Read the rest of this entry »

Battalion 1944 is bringing the fight to EGX Rezzed

Battalion 1944 [official site] managed to get onto my good side within seconds of poring over the website for details. It does that by dispensing with buffs and unlocks, in an attempt to deliver a purely skill-based multiplayer shooter. It looks cracking too, with tight maps based on actual WWII locations. The proof, as ever, will be in the pudding though, and you’ll be able to taste that pudding at Rezzed next week. Square Enix Collective will be bringing the game and its developers, Bulkhead Interactive, to the show where you’ll be able to join in 4v4 matches.

I’ll be playing beforehand and will let you know how that works out next Thursday, both on the site and in person should you see me at Rezzed.

Paradox are bringing devs and games to Rezzed

in my experience, paradox always arrive by blimp

As long-time readers will know, I don’t believe there’s any possibility of a party unless someone brings a strategy game to the dancefloor. This year, EGX Rezzed is going to be party central. For the first time, Paradox will have a presence at the show, in the form of three playable games (including the just-announced Steel Division: Normandy 44’s multiplayer) and two developer sessions. They’re both on the Friday, with Cities: Skylines up first at 12PM and Stellaris following at 2PM. In the former, you’ll hear Colossal Order’s CEO on continuous development post-release, and working with a large community, and in the latter Stellaris’ game director will talk about the first year post-release, and the major expansion, Utopia.

Blocky Boris Announces London Games Festival

Updated to add a bit more about how the funding/investment is expected to filter along with regard to the UK games industry outside London.

The London Games Festival is being revived and will take place in early April. April 1-10 to be precise.

The festival is part of a wider three-year programme and aims “to do for London what Fashion Week has done for the fashion sector”. More on that in a moment but I guess the festival itself will only be guaranteed for those three years then?

Oi Indies: EGX Rezzed Leftfield Collection Submissions Open

I think the best thing about Rezzed, (now EGX Rezzed) is the Leftfield Collection. In the midst of a busy show floor of flashing lights and expensive backdrops is a corridor of indie games. Yes, that corridor is always too narrow, and yes, if only the devs would put more effort into decorating their section of wall, but don’t underestimate what that space is: it’s free space to games that would otherwise never be able to afford to appear at a high profile gaming show. And if you’d like to see your game appearing there, you can now apply.
