Strange Attractors 2
This year at PAX we featured a hand full of really awesome independent games and we called it the PAX 10. We received a ton of entries and whittling them down to 10 was not an easy task. It was however a very fun task as it involved getting a bunch of our industry friends together in one room and playing games all day. We had a system set up so that you would “check out” a game, play it and then fill out a form that asked you to score it based on all kinds of different criteria. I played a lot of games that day obviously but one of my favorites was a game called Strange Attractors 2. It’s hard to explain why it’s so fun. Imagine a pinball table with a metal ball and you can manipulate the gravity of the various bumpers on the table to either attract or repel the ball. Even that’s not a very good explanation.
