One of today's main features is this 'Road To The IGF' feature, profiling and interviewing each of the finalists in the 2006 Independent Games Festival main competition. Today's profile takes a look at Ominous Development from Kalamazoo, Michigan, the developers for unique one-button game Strange Attractors, which is a finalist for the Innovation in Game Design award at this year's IGF. The developers' description of single-input title explains: "Strange Attractors is a single switch game. One button controls your fate as you use gravity to navigate the various two-dimentional levels avoiding hazards, slinging helpless spacemen through the void and gathering points." You can now read the full Gamasutra feature on the subject, including more information on this unique one-button indie title (no registration required, please feel free to link to the article from external websites).
