Worry about experimental games, 'Out of Index 2022'

The game festival 'Out of Index 2022, OO!', Which focuses on creators' thoughts and experiments rather than marketability and popularity, was held at All That Mind in Munrae-dong, Seoul on the 3rd. Smile gate Stop Indie has been an official sponsor.

'OO!' Began in 2014 as a festival for creators who make games rather than players. 'OO!' Is a game event that shows a game full of question marks and is looking for an exclamation mark.

Park Undying, a developer of the planning team, summarized this year's experimental game trend as a game that plays outside the monitor. The play does not stay inside the monitor, but the player moves the body and plays the game according to the mission. For example, six players listen to the song and dance, and five people listen to the same song and one other. I find someone who listens to other songs and finds it.

The reason for encouraging experimental games is to prevent the fixation of the genre. OO! The planning team regards the rebellion of experimental games as a fixation of the genre, not a commercial game. Cookie Clicker was also a relatively experimental game when it first appeared. Unlike the existing games, it was simply clicked, it was fun to see it. 'Cookie Clicker' was fresh, but gradually became a genre and the name 'Clicker Game' began to be known. For now, fresh clicker games are hard to think of.

OO! The planning team selected 10 experimental games of the year after self-examination. Judging criteria are games that can give people a new shock and inspiration. As a result, the keyboard, mouse, out of the controller, out of the monitor, and the experimental games that are not tied to time and space are OO! I filled the exhibition hall.

Park Undying developed OO! He regretted that he tended to decrease the experimental game recently. Abstract, but in the past, some developers have released a very wonderful experimental game. This work will enter the index. As this process passes, the emergence of experimental games gradually decreases, and more and more fixed games. The planning team is thinking about why the experimental game is decreasing. And waits for the emergence of a new experimental game.

Experimental games have a declaration. The developer made a work and declared, This is a game! Park Undying, a developer, said, Then, is it not a game? Is it just a game that can't be made?
