A lot has been happening at Game of the Month Club and I think we are like 4 months behind on editing our videos but I wanted to share an unedited live feed from The Great Katamari Debate at Babycastles last week.

This was Damacy Vs We Love. It was well prepared and awesome.

127 BPM at Play NYC

14 Aug 2018, 9:42 pm

127 BPM premiered at Play NYC last weekend as part of the Graffiti Games initiative. This is a game about walking in New York City. It is both poking fun at and a love letter to New York and games themselves. This is the second game I made with Yuxin, Oath being the first. We got the initial inspiration from our friend Anton who believes New Yorkers have an average walking speed of 127 beats per minute. You can read more about it on my site and incase you missed it, you can download it now on our Itch page. You can finally bust out your old dance pad again. Nice.
