22 games make it to the show floor from over 275 submissions

EGX Rezzed, London’s premier video games event, today revealed the list of games that make up this year’s Leftfield Collection. EGX Rezzed, in partnership with BAFTA, is a key event within London Games Festival and takes place at Tobacco Dock on the 7th-9th April.

The Leftfield Collection, sponsored by SEGA, gives indie developers the opportunity to showcase their games for free at a major consumer event. The Leftfield Collection has a long history of bringing a wide variety of games to public view; from small hobby projects with unique control inputs to beautiful and interesting commercial work. 2015’s Leftfield Collection included Her Story, the critically acclaimed detective mystery by Sam Barlow and Taphobos: An Immersive Coffin Experience a VR game which tasked players with escaping from a real world coffin.

Over 275 games were submitted to this year’s Leftfield Collection with the final selection of 22 a typically eclectic mix. Knife To Meet You, from a team including the developer of the hugely popular Line Wobbler, is a custom hardware game featuring a real knife.
