CGDC8 Press Coverage


| Comments (4) | Views (6)

JayCGDC8 Theme: SandboxI just want to take a moment out of our regular review schedule to thank a few sites who were gracious enough to review game entries from our Casual Gameplay Design Competition #8.

The developers who enter these competitions certainly deserve all the attention they get, and it would be really nice to see this list expanded upon for future competitions.

PC World reviews several notable entries. Thanks, Laura!
"A casual game can relax your nerves or stimulate your mind. These great games were winners and notables in Casual Gameplay Design Competition #8: Sandbox."

Play This Thing reviews [Together]. Thanks, Matt!
"To all the diehard indie snobs out there spooked by the "casual" label: Don't worry. [Together] is an art game masquerading as a casual game..."
