Some awesome news finally starting to surface surrounding GameCity 7, the latest yearly festival taking place in Nottingham, October 20th through the 27th: Adam Saltsman & Robin Arnott’s Venus Patrol-exclusive game Capsule will be turned into “an exclusive theatrical presentation… with sensory deprivation elements taking place in a refrigerated area.”

Dubbed “the world’s slowest theme park ride ever”, GameCity explains that the so-called “Capsule Capsule” will see players “undergo special training on Earth before stepping into their spaceship to explore the dark, cold confines of space, battling dwindling oxygen and power levels while searching for answers to a slowly unravelling mystery.”

Venus Patrol Kickstarter backers & subscribers will probably immediately understand exactly how & why this is going to be amazing: the rest of you may want to consider a membership to the site for a copy of the game to better prepare yourself for the event later this month.

You can find more information about the Capsule Capsule at GameCity’s site, where there might also be some other interesting news coming in the next few days…

  1. I wish I could be there! I can’t believe they’re really doing the refrigeration thing. So rad. I’d like to see a Capsule bomber jacket for sale or something to commemorate the event

  2. Gamecity continue to be the best gaming festival in the UK. They do so much awesome stuff like this. Can’t wait to give this a play and freeze to death in a fridge in Nottingham.

  3. I’m still undecided about whether or not to go to this, 7 days is a long time to stay in Nottingham. . .
    I hope they release the schedule soon so I can plan what I want to see and arrange something.
    Also the game I made for the AGBIC jam will be shown there at some point.
