Feature: GDC 2012 Gems

The Bleeding Edge: Experimental Gameplay Workshop

One of the annual highlights of GDC is the Experimental Gameplay Workshop (EGW). Although not a workshop, and featuring the nonsense word "gameplay" in its title, it's an excellent afternoon of developers showing a big crowd some of their more esoteric ideas.

If you were lucky enough to be following RPS's Twitter account last night, you'd have seen the live reporting of the 2012 IGF awards in full, glorious detail, as they happened, live. It was amazing.

My brain aches with the pulsing throb of a piece of think-meat that has been sorely overtaxed in the last 36 hours. It’s not that I’ve been contemplating the great mysteries of our time, I’ve just been playing an awful lot of computer games. Nearly 300.

This Is Indie: The 300 Game Pirate Kart

Adam's planning a longer post on the IGF Pirate Kart's multifarious and hopefully delightful content, but the download was taking ages and he had to go drinking with Lewie P (thus, the Northern England contingent of RPS represents). Mr Smith will hopefully be your more expansive guide tomorrow, but in the meantime it seems only right and just to at least advise you of this…
