Yes, the Fan Expo was full of new, shiny technology and major publishers. We did play those games. We had a lot of fun playing through some of the independently made games from a variety of different developers. The Hand Eye Society – a Torontonian contingent of game journalists, developers and enthusiasts – had games on display showing off some of the local talent with a wide variety of genres and styles.
We sat down with Society co-founder and game developer Miguel Sternberg of Spooky Squid Games to discuss the local scene, indie games and a wide variety of other topics. You can download his games via his website (they are freeware) and be sure to check out more information about the Hand Eye Society.
