Terry Cavanagh (VVVVV, Don´t look back) stellt grad in New York bei der “No Quarter” exhibtion sein neues Spiel namens “At a Distance” vor. Schade, dass solche Sachen immer so weit weg sein müssen. Erste Erfahrungsberichte und der Trailer machen schon recht neugierig.
My friend and I were amongst the first few people to get their hands on At a Distance. We eventually gave up and other people replaced us, people we communicated our experiences to. As the night unfolded, even more people joined the discussion. Strangers mused over the purpose of the game, the methods, the things that they uncovered. Bewilderment formed more of a communality than alcohol ever could. What made it special was that it wasn’t really just backseat gaming. More often than not, the players were actively looking for help or participating in the discussion. It was a fascinating experience; video games seldom come in so communal a shape.
