It is said that games nominated in the IGF competition
immediately become ghosts, haunting the memories of journalists and the creaky attics of Twitter, but without any true corporeal form. This year's list
is less spooky than most because many of the nominees are available right now and others are just around the corner. Enter 7 Grand Steps
, the new game from Mousechief, of Dangerous High School Girls
fame. The game received a nomination in the Nuovo category and, having spent a few December nights absorbed in it, I reckon it richly deserves its place. A demo is now available, so you can download that and then agree with me. It's a game about family, legends and traversing history. Video below.
