GAME NIGHT 11
I WANNA BE THE GUY GAIDEN | WALKER
SATURDAY, OCTOBER 20, 7-10PM
I Wanna Be The Guy Gaiden by Michael “Kayin” O’Reilly: The sequel to the most difficult game sensation I Wanna Be The Guy. A platformer that takes sprites from games of your childhood memories – and you may not have seen this one coming – kills you with them.
Walker by Blake Fix: An impressively large platformer with beautiful sprite art, a whimsical sense of humour and a single-button control system. Playing as the titular Walker, you embark on a grand quest to… walk somewhere, in a mostly forwards/rightwards direction! And jump on stuff! Facebook event. >>
