Comics vs Games as a whole explores the convergence of the two worlds of its namesake, and we have once again reached out to cartoonists to offer their unique takes on the subject of electronic entertainment. But this year we are presenting video games, which are currently moving into three dimensions via fancy tech, in the same manner that comics perfected over 50 years ago.
Attract Mode is proud to present the works of Mariel Cartwright, Steve Courtney, Ashley Davis, Kyle Fewell, JovoVe, Kris Mukai, John Pham, Asif Siddiky, Kelly Smith, Shuji Suzuki (Ventla), Babs Tarr, Jesse Tise, and Mikko Walamies.
That’s not all: Bento Miso has commissioned three games that pair comic artists with game makers, with cutting-edge virtual reality tech added to the mix. You’ve all heard that the Oculus Rift is the future of video games, but did you know that it’s the next big things in comics as well? TCAF 2014 is proud to present Toronto at large their very first chance to see the next big step in art and technology.
The collaborations are:
