Today the program for the 2012 edition of Tweetakt Festival has gone live. I just wanted to draw your attention to the great games I selected to be put on display at the main festival pavilion:
- Fingle by Game Oven; like Twister for your fingers with a Barry White feel.
- Hokra by Ramiro Corbetta; two-versus-two player minimalist digital sports game with more depth than you’d think.
- Johann Sebastian Joust by Die Gute Fabrik; a deceptively simple physical game set to music by Bach that makes inventive use of PlayStation Move controllers.
- Room Racers by Lieven van Velthoven; racing game played on a course made with physical object placed on the ground.
You’ll notice all of these are multiplayer games, and many have an openness to them that allows for inventiveness and creativity from players. That’s a sort of theme that emerged while working on the selection with the folks at Tweetakt. It’s very different from last year, which involved many installations.1
These will all be playable from March 23 to April 1 on the Neude square in Utrecht, the Netherlands. If you manage to visit Tweetakt, I hope you’ll enjoy playing.
- That’s not a value judgement, just a shift of interest on our side. [↩]
