The dust has finally settled on VERSUS (fyi, work from that show will be available for purchase via the shop in the coming weeks). But there’s another event that Attract Mode was also recently involved with that’s worth taking a second look at: Comics Vs. Games.
Earlier this year, we were honored to be invited on the behalf of the Toronto Comics Arts Festival and the Hand Eye Society, to take part in a historic event that encompassed both Toronto’s red hot indie cartooning and game dev scenes.
TIFF Nexus documented the event, and produced a short film that recently debuted at this year’s Toronto International Film Festival, just a few weeks ago! Where the Creative Jam games (which were originally inspired by ARTXGAME, our first collaboration with Giant Robot) were on hand and playable once more.
As noted previously, that’s where I first came across Cumulo Nimbus, which eventually made its United States debut at the Fangamer X Attract Mode show in Seattle. For those interested in seeing more from the Comics Vs. Games opening from this past spring, I posted a report with plenty of pics on my blog, which can be seen here and here.
Select pieces from that particular show will also be available via the Attract Mode shop very soon as well. Btw, and I know this old news, but we’ve been mighty busy on our end, so better late than never: They Bleed Pixels, by Miguel Sternberg (aka my Comics Vs. Games partner in crime) recently came out.
Perhaps you’ve heard of it already; it blew up like crazy, upon its long-awaited arrival (and justifiably so). But if not, grab your copy today!
