Belgian experimental video game developer Tale of Tales has released its new game, Fatale:

Fatale is an interactive vignette in realtime 3D inspired by the story of Salome.

Explore a living tableau filled with references to the legendary tale and enjoy the moonlit serenity of a fatal night in the orient. Fatale offers an experimental play experience that stimulates the imagination and encourages multiple interpretations and personal associations. (Tale of Tales: Fatale)

Death of a column, birth of a movement

Two years ago, I wrote my first column celebrating the best indie games: small, offbeat titles, programmed usually by a single auteur and given away for free. I figured I’d make it an annual affair. For 12 months, I’d scour the net for independent games that had a spark — some innovative bit of design or gameplay — and gather a list of the top 10.

But I’ve decided it’s impossible. (Wired)
