New consumer videogame show W.A.S.D has revealed the complete lineup of indie games that will make up W.A.S.D Curios, which is a slice of the event that will let devs showcase their goodies for free.
There are 13 projects for you to play if you head to the Tobacco Dock in Wapping, London, from April 7-9. You could play Albert Wilde: Quantum P.I., which is about solving murders, flirting badly, and, perhaps, discovering a wormhole to another universe. You’re also a cat, which is quite ideal. You’ve also got a virtual and mixed reality project called 7,100 AD: Air that explores world building after a six mass extinction through the embodiment of a wild bee.
Initially revealed in February, W.A.S.D Curios is part of a new consumer videogame show that will run during the London Games Festival this year. The name of the game is to allow indie developers a platform to show off projects that “sit outside the mainstream; that do things a bit differently”, as the show’s blog announcement explained at the time. But what does “different” mean? In this case, it could apply to games that aren’t far along into their development journey, toy around with what it means to be a ‘game’, or even something that uses innovative or non-traditional controllers.
If you’re curios about the full lineup, you can find it below:
- 7100AD: Air – Studio Yambe Tam
