I really miss going to games shows, y'all. Fortunately, I'm not alone. With their usual Pittsburgh location shuttered during the Covid-19 crisis, experimental arcade-slash-arts gallery LIKELIKE have taken their show online with An Itsy Bitsy Crisis - a digital exhibition of works created in Adam LeDoux's lo-fi game-making tool Bitsy, hosted in an online museum as pixellated as the works on show.

I've had a few cracks at the puzzle-platformer (I think it's a puzzle-platformer) since creator Loren Schmidt released it for free earlier this month, and each time find some strange new thing without quite understanding what I'm doing.It's not impenetrable, I'm sure, but I've been a bit exhausted and dim these past few weeks.…

IGF Factor 2010: Star Guard
