ANNOUNCING: THE GAMES

March 7th, 2010 by cloo

Gamma IV comes to San Francisco’s Mezzanine (444 Jessie Street) this Wednesday, March 10th, 2010! We’re in an extra powerful scramble to make sure this is the best Gamma yet.

Meanwhile, we’re pleased to announce the six brand-new One Button Games, chosen from over 150 submissions(!), for this year’s Gamma:

  • Silent Skies by Spyeart
  • Poto & Cabenga by Honeyslug
  • 4Fourths by Mikengreg
  • B.U.T.T.O.N. (Brutally Unfair Tactics Totally OK Now) by Copenhagen Game Collective
  • GAMMA IV – THE GAME by cactus
  • Faraway by Steph Thirion

This year presented a significant curatorial challenge for us, given the exceptional quality and diversity of submissions to our “one-button games” call. The six games we ended up choosing demonstrate creative approaches to the one-button restriction, AND are tailored to the unique challenges of Gamma’s “new arcade” format. Games will be displayed on large screen projections and set to music from Starpause (SF), Baiyon (Kyoto), Class Prez (ATX), and more.

Also, don’t forget that from March 11th-13th, you can check out the One Button Games showcase at the Gamma IV Pavilion on the GDC Show Floor, presented in association with the Game Developers Conference.

And for more Gamma fun, come see One Button Objects on March 12th, a collection of playful circuit hacked creations inspired by the Gamma4 theme, at Gray Area Foundation for the Arts (55 Taylor St. San Francisco).
