Hey backers for the past month or so we’ve been sitting on the news that Octodad 1 was accepted into the Fantastic Arcade showcase. Now the bomb has been dropped from on high a top the Fantastic Fest news feed and we can share some cool things with you. Fantastic Arcade is a game festival which is still pretty new. Last year they featured games like Enviro-Bear 2000: Operation: Hibernation, FEIST, Monaco, Machinarium, Nidhogg, Braid, Canabalt, and many many others.
We here at Young Horses feel so utterly and completely honored to be featured among the great titles in this year’s festival. We were lucky enough to be featured in the festival’s main competition where we’ll be sharing some arcade space with such monstrous titles as: Capsized,Faraway, Fez, FRACT, Jesus VS. Dinosaurs, Radical Fishing, and Skulls of the Shogun. There are also 13 other great games being featured at Fantastic arcade: Banker’s Dozen, Bit Pilot, Deep Sea, Dyad, Hohokum, Insanely Twisted Shadow Planet, Lost Mars,Murder Dog IV: Trial of the Murder Dog, Owlboy, Salome, Superbrothers: Sword & Sworcery EP, They Bleed Pixels, and last but not least Ute (A game for adults).
