Following what I can only imagine must have been a really disappointing discussion — one that apparently saw a licensing deal fall through for the four artXgames featured at Giant Robot’s Game Over/Continue show — the process begins of getting them out into the public for free.
First up: Saelee Oh and Anna Anthropy’s PC game Octopounce, just released via Anthropy’s site, and probably the most successful game of the four for a social, slightly drunken, multiplayer event.
Anna adds on that note, though:
The game was designed for big social events with lots of people: if you play by yourself it’ll probably be boring. The way we ran the game was to hook four game pads up to it (I put a sticker on each one of the color of octopus it controlled).
