Jaime Woo on LVL 4

Gamercamp, the little games-festival-that-could, returns for its fourth annual outing in the city. The brainchild of co-founders Mark Rabo and Jaime Woo, Gamercamp is a celebration of everything related to games and the people who make (and play) them. With keynote speakers representing games ranging from AAA to indie, Gamercamp Lvl 4 aims to be the most ambitious iteration to date.

With its pulsing palette of neon streaks of light and adaptive soft-techno soundtrack, Shawn McGrath's Dyad looks a little out-of-place when compared to other Sony offerings such as Starhawk or Resistance: Burning Skies. But its unique flavour and psychedelic presentation are exactly what makes it stand out from the crowd.
