About Homo Machina
The biological puzzle game, Homo Machina is developed for mobile platforms by Darjeeling and co-produced by ARTE with art direction from Olivier Bonhomme, whose previous work includes “Californium”. Inspired by German physician Fritz Kahn’s illustrations and his bestselling 1920s book series “Das Leben des Menschen” (Human Life), Homo Machina invites players inside the human body over the course of one day. Represented as a gigantic factory, this body is staffed by an army of workers that must be instructed to successfully execute a series of daily human functions.
Homo Machina will be at Into the Pixel at the Concourse Hall.
A tribute to street art, Vandals is developed for PC and Mobile by Cosmografik. Created by a member of the street art movement, the game blends a stealth and painting game with iconic works from the legends including Keith Haring and Blek Le Rat. Players sneak past authorities and other deterrents in order to paint their latest work, which can then be shared over social networks. By collecting bonuses across 60 increasingly challenging levels, aspiring artists can unlock information and find out more about the history of street art.
Vandals will be at the IndieCade Showcase, West Hall #4100.
