If the IMGA has a category for “the weirdest game of the year”, it must be Plug & Play.
Plug & Play, Weird But Surprisingly Emotional Game
This unforgettable surreal game play with plugs is created based on the identically titled film by Michael Frei, which has received numerous awards and has been showing all over the world.
According to Mario von Rickenbach, each animation frame was finger-drawn with an integrated touchpad of a laptop. Some other fingers have been involved in creating this game.
When the jury members first looked at this game, people laughed and applauded. They found out that this game is “entertainingly gross”, which is kind of hard to be seen among mobile games.
We are impressed by the originality of the style of the game, as well as the weird ( Mario thinks this word is reasonable) but fun thoughts delivered by its developers. It is surprisingly addictive that once you start to play, it could be so hard to stop, and you always wonder what will happen next.
Some people even wonder why this game exists. But in the meantime, this weird game actually has received lots of awards and compliments from gamers as well as industry experts. It is always important to award intelligence and creativity.
Plug & Play is nominated for Excellence in Innovation this year by 12th IMGA jury members. Discover more games at: http://www.imgawards.com/awarded-games/12th-imga/
