There will also be the chance for all attendees to vote for their favourite Showcase game in the People’s Choice Award – voting slips to be provided and awards presented to the winning developer in a ceremony closing the conference at 5pm on the Thursday.

  • The Dream Machine by Cockroach - a point & click adventure game on PC with characters and props made out of materials like clay and cardboard. You play as a couple who've just moved into a new apartment and discover that all is not as it seems.
  • Kairo by Locked Door Puzzle - an atmospheric 3D exploration and puzzle solving game on PC. Enter this lost world and slowly uncover the true purpose of Kairo and fulfil a great destiny.
  • Skulls of the Shogun by Haunted Temple Studios - this arcade strategy game on PC is an invigorating cocktail of 1960's flavoured sorcery, arcade button mashing pace and turn based strategy.
  • Amoebattle by Intrinsic Games - a real-time strategy game developed for the Nintendo DSi. You are a microbiologist with the ability to control amoebas and you must use strategy and wits to defend the microscopic world!
  • GliD by Spiderling Games - a single player exploration game on PC in which you play as a small robot tasked with exploring and restoring an abandoned world.
  • Orc Attack by Casual Brothers – a beat’em up multiplayer game for PC, Xbox 360 & PS3. Take the role of a funny and somewhat grubby Orc warrior, who needs to help his mates to recapture their ancestral lands.
  • The Swapper by Facepalm Games - an ambient puzzle platformer, it features game mechanics centred around the main character's ability to create clones and swap consciousnesses with them.
  • Fate of the World by Red Redemption - a PC game that uses scientific models as a backdrop to a challenging and thought-provoking strategy simulation.
  • Creavures by Muse Games - set in a world with beautiful phosphorescent colours players will take control of five miniature mythical creatures to help them solve mysterious platforming puzzles.
  • To-Fu The Trails of Chi by HotGen – an iPad game where the player's main objective is to reach the mystical Fortune Kitty - however, more experienced gamers will enjoy the optional challenge of collecting the game’s 300 emblems.

Congrats guys!

Please post something. I hope there is a reason why I put this in my bookmarks. I love the idea of playing as a spider and making structures with thread, and would like to see maybe a tiny clip to keep me hopeful?

No it's far from dead, we've just been very quiet online as we just wanted to focus completely on the game.

Thanks for showing us that, it looks awesome, I can certainly see some similarities but GLiD plays completely differently. =)
