I went away for a couple of weeks and somebody turned the games industry back on.
El Shaddai is a wonderful thing. It's brimming over with hyperactive creativity, as stylistically varied and interesting as any game of modern times. It's also totally insane, something that I really hope will help it make an impact on the charts when it belatedly comes out over here this Friday.
"Calm and soothing" isn't exactly the most common design aesthetic among the creators of game booths at the Tokyo Game Show - which is perhaps why UTV Ignition's booth for El Shaddai: Ascension of the Metatron stands out so prominently.
