Students eh. Nothing better to do than come up with an interesting new game concept that’s hip and down with the kids.
Shouldn’t they be drinking cheap booze and watching re-runs of Columbo all day.
Anyway.. this it Tag: The Power of Paint. And it’s just been awarded Best Student Game and Student Showcase at the Independent Games Festival.

John Taylor’s Film The Blanks blog is an awesome experiment to abstract and / or reduce film posters.

Great concept and excellent design work.
