Games as interactive art
The Independent Games Festival took place at the end of last month in San Francisco, along side GDC. The finalists are listed on their website. The games that impressed me were the ones with really stylized art, each could exist as an artistic installation even without any interaction so I imagine playing them would be even more inspiring.
The Unfinished Swan — shoot ink to reveal the landscape.
Feist, a beautiful looking physics-based platform game.
Blueberry Garden, a surreal ‘art’ sandbox game — kinda creepy!
