Tim Garbos: Tim’s almost official “Fit Like a Glove” award show

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

For games that fit the device they were designed for so well that they can never be played on anything elseI will be giving awards to digital games that utilise existing devices so well that they can never be separated. What would GIRP, the keyboard-based climbing game, be without a keyboard?

Not the exotic stuff like console platforms, mobile devices or alternative controllers, but our ordinary, taken-for-granted things - keyboard, mouse, controller - that's rotting in a corner of our mind. We also look at games that uses normal input and can be played by huge crowds of people who show up at talks like this (you!).

When games use a keyboard, they mostly limit themselves to WASD and a few extra keys, but which game uses the most keys? What’s the best game only using the mousewheel?

I show the games on stage, play a few of them, argue and award the best in the following categories:

  • Best use of the keyboard
  • Best use of the mouse
  • Best use of joypad controller
  • Best game played by crowds
  • Best game for mouse wheel (Bonus category)

Winners get a comfy actual reality glove!
