Big congratulations to CoCo & Co for their win at this Independent Games Festival Student Showcase for Way! My praise is coming a little late, but don't read too much into that - this is a game that is very much worth a few of your precious Earth minutes.
I went into Way without really knowing anything about it, and I'd recommend you do the same. Don't read any descriptions, don't watch trailers; just play this super clever game.
Way was up against some serious competition, but of the dozens, maybe hundreds of IGF Student Showcase entrants I played this year, I don't think any other so deftly balanced enjoyable play mechanics with artsy subtext.
Chris, Cynthia, Walt, Hugo, Paulwei, and Katherine - I tip my hat to all of you.
