10 Mississippi is a stop motion game about a day's routine, played over and over and over and over again. Exploring life's interstitial moments - drinking a cup of coffee or waiting during the morning commute or composing an email to an old friend - the player learns more and more about the character, despite every day remaining exactly the same.

10 Mississippi plays with the taboo of film envy in games, crafting an experience by browsing through kinetic photographs. Played from a first-person perspective, each photograph is an intimate invitation to a lonely 20-something woman's world.

The game features the song "Full Screen" by Adult Mom.

Meet Alea, a little musician exploring an ocean of sound. On her adventures, Alea carries a guitar that can be played in many different ways. Through this, she can interact, improvise and duet with objects and creatures in the world. Everything responds in key, forming a musical conversation.

The game's soundtrack is procedural. It aims to give every island a special musical character by controlling tonality, key, modal movement and sound intensity. An automated music engine mutates the soundtrack over time, creating unique and evolving soundscapes. It creates its own melodies and chord changes, as well as adds algorithmic and prewritten rhythms. Using her guitar, Alea can also contribute and change the music.

Alea's Island began development during an artist residency program in 2016, and is an international collaborative project between game designer Jon Tiburzi and electronic musician Terrane. We hope that it sparks interest in exploring, creating and communicating through music and sound.

All The Delicate Duplicates is a short single player first-person narrative game that toys with the concept of time: reality isn't stable or linear here, but unfurls across a storyworld that bends, flexes and (in some instances) duplicates.

_Story_
John, a computer engineer and single father, inherits a collection of arcane objects from Mo, his mysterious relative. Over time, John and his daughter Charlotte begin to realise that these objects have unusual physical properties – and that the more they are exposed to them, the more their reality and memories appear to change.

_Main Mechanics_
All the Delicate Duplicates is a PC game - containing a non-linear 'Back [+Forth] Story' – that uses familiar FPS game mechanics to allow free roam around (often surreal) interactive environments. Using a mouse and keyboard and/or gamepad, players explore objects, diaries, journals, newspaper cuttings, mobile phones, laptops and other items left behind by the work's characters, helping to piece together an elastically fragmented storyline.

Berlin, November 2089: The Cold War never ended. For 150 years both sides have used time manipulation technology to observe and counter each other's every move. Now this fragile state of affairs is approaching a breaking point, as a rogue nuclear strike will send the world into turmoil. Both sides have scrambled to send agents back in time to find who is behind the attack and how to prevent it. If they fail, the whole world will turn to ash, forever.

All Walls Must Fall is an isometric tactics game where actions happen to the pulsing beat of the music. You control time travelling secret agents as they jump and loop through a single night in the city of Berlin. Using a pausable real-time system, carefully plan your decisions and use powerful time manipulation abilities to your advantage, as you carry out your mission in the shadows or in plain sight. Levels are procedurally recombined, giving All Walls Must Fall a highly replayable campaign structure, while still offering individually crafted components and set-pieces.

All Walls Must Fall takes inspiration from genre classics like X-Com, Syndicate and REZ, as well more recent indie games like The Banner Saga, Braid, SUPERHOT and Crypt of the Necrodancer.

Have you ever been so sad you couldn't get out of bed? So transported by a piece of music, you felt like
you could see into the heart of the composer? So guilt-ridden you never wanted to see the sun again? Of
course you have – or at least something like that. You're human, and you experience a wide range of
emotions, some minor and some paralyzingly major. In Anamorphine, memories of the past and the emotional baggage that come with them all deeply affect our main character's psyche, and you'll discover how they contort his perception of the world as you explore his painful memories.

Tyler, a young man in post-traumatic denial, revisits a succession of milestones that define his relationship with his wife Elena. She falls victim to an accident that robs her of her livelihood and emotional outlet. As Elena quietly slips into depression, Tyler's mental turmoil warps his past as he struggles to come to terms with his guilt and inability to help her. Told with no dialogue or action button, Anamorphine's narrative comes together in Tyler's dream-like memories, contorting and bleeding into each other through his mental state. Will you confront the past and try to find a way to move on, or will you let your inner demons consume you?
