It's an ever-changing island where the birds sing a pretty song and there's always music in the air. I scale peaks, mope around graves, chase frogs, am stalked by owls, and gaze at the stars dancing just for me. Proteus is my happy place.

IndieCade 2011: Proteus

IndieCade 2011: Proteus

Along with the various conventional video games that can be found at IndieCade, the festival has also been home to some specialty titles that emphasize art moreso than gameplay. One of these titles is Proteus, a first-person exploration game from British-based developer, Twisted Tree Games. I was fortunate enough to take a hands-on look at the game, while also observing the reactions of convention-goers that tried the game out for themselves.

IndieCade 2011: Award winners and inventive cooperation

IndieCade 2011: Award winners and inventive cooperation

One of the best things about this year's IndieCade is the particularly wide assortment of incredibly innovative cooperative experiences. Given that all those in attendance love videogames--or at the very least, have a healthy curiosity--an enthusiastic collaborator is always in within arm's reach.

It's indicative of the natural bonds that can develop when bringing so many talented game-makers together. "There's a really unique community of developers that come from around the world, sharing ideas," IndieCade CEO and founder Stephanie Barish explained. She told me that oftentimes, new development teams manifest as the result of the relationships that form at IndieCade. "It's just very, very exciting to be here and be part of this community," she said, "and to have the opportunity to show your work to each other, and to the broader public."
