Jonathan Lester from dealspwn.com met us at GamesCom and spent a significant amount of time in our booth, talking to our students and playing the games. They’ve just published a review and they’re saying some awefully nice things. 🙂
The Indie scene is one of the last true bastions of creativity left in the gaming industry after years of reprocessed sequels- and it doesn’t get any more independent than Gotland University.
It’s a Swedish game design school that holds an annual student competition, and as such, they’re free to explore new concepts and art styles without constraints from publishers and the sequel culture. The competition winners have the opportunity to show off their wares at Gamescom as well as various cash prizes… and frankly, they’ve crafted some immensely promising experiences.
Pay close attention, because these three unsung games are quite unlike anything else you’ll see in the show.
