- MADDEN IS OUT TODAY, BUT WHAT’S NEW? WE HAVE THAT INFORMATION HERE! »
Regular listeners will have heard of Gamercamp before because we’ve talked about each Gamercamp, with the team behind it, since the first Gamercamp. New listeners should know that Gamercamp is a large gaming festival that happens each year in our fair city. Our friends on the Gamercamp staff tell us that over 1,000 people attend their festival annually, and that they are expecting this year to be no exception.
Now you may be asking yourself, “why should I care about Gamercamp?” Well on Tuesday of this week, Gamercamp festival director Jaime Woo announced Ken Yeung, lead programmer of the award-winning Super T.I.M.E. Force, and Pat Redding, lead game designer of the highly-anticipated Splinter Cell: Black List, and artists from NYU’s No Quarter exhibition as the latest talent to join the 2012 roster.
If that doesn’t get your mind racing, you should know that those Yeung, Redding, and the No Quarter exhibition are just the tip of the iceberg. They join already announced industry professionals like Deus Ex: Human Revolution lead writer Mary DeMarle, Papo & Yo creative director Vander Caballero, and Dyad creator Shawn McGrath.
You can go to the Gamercamp website for more information, but we can tell you right now that attendees will have over 25 presentations to choose from at Gamercamp. There will also be roughly 30 new or in-progress games to play. This will include the NYU’s No Quarter Exhibition that is curated by Charles Pratt. No Quarter will be set up at the Gamercamp Social, and will consist of:
- A) BaraBariBall, an Indiecade-nominated Super Smash Brothers-inspired sports game by Noah Sasso
- B) Guts of Glory, a post-apocalyptic card game created by Zach Gage (SpellTower)
- C) Drunk Dungeon, a large social board game by Margaret Robertson
- D) Hokra, an Indiecade-nominated abstract sports game by Ramiro Corbetta
- E) At a Distance, a critically-praised art game by Terry Cavanagh (VVVVVV)
- F) Deep Sea, a unique and immersive game involving a gas mask by Robin Arnott
- G) Recurse, a motion-sensor game by Matt Parker
- H) Nidhogg, an award-winning fighting game by Mark Essen
