Indie Arena Booth 2018 Film

As we’ve written before, we have been at the Indie Arena Booth this year not only to promote space.games.film, but also to produce the aftershow film of the booth.

Here is the review of this year’s appearance of the Indie Arena Booth at Gamescom. It was an exciting week with great games, creative people and an incredible team spirit. Of course, it was especially nice for us to meet familiar faces from space.games.film again, for example Rockfish Games, who once again where an exhibitor for Everspace. We have to mention Andreas Suika especially, who welcomed us with his awesome team and made us part of the booth as the very first indie film there.

My personal indie highlights: Patrick

Besides our promotion for space.games.film, I, too, had the chance to check out some games. Here are my favorites:

1. Neo Cab

A mix of Cyberpunkt / Film Noir, which at first caught my I with it looks, but when playing it, it blew me away narratively. As a taxi driver in a neon colored sci-fi world you meet different passengers und get lost more and more fascinating and sometimes bizarre conversations.

2. My Child Lebensborn

The subject matter of the Lebensborn children in Norway is being brought to you in this game in a very sensible and emotional way. You witness the tragic situation of a child, which is being exposed to the prejudice and hostility of its classmates and neighbours. The child, which was fatherd by a Nazi soldier, longs for the truth about its father. As the player you have to take care of this child and also speak out the painful truth. I never thought, that a tabletop/smartphone game could move me like that.

 

3. Edna & Harvey: The Breakout – 10th Anniversary Edition

What, that old piece? Yes, definitely! This indie game, which 10 years ago was the cornerstone for one of the biggest German developer and publisher. Beautifully remastered Daedalic gets this title out to PC and the current console generation. Besides, creator Jan “Poki” Müller-Michaelis remained faithful and visited the Indie Arena Booth a few times. For me as an old adventure-lover, this is one of the highlights of this years Gamescom.

In the cinema of the Cologne Game Lab and ifs the premiere of our documentary about space games, space.games.film, took place on the 23rd of August.
