In another of today's articles, regular columnist Jim Rossignol takes a look at the latest goings-on in esoteric game topics for 'The Esoteric Beat' column, including looking at VR for insects, screaming and 'weird cliques'. In this extract from the new column, Rossignol looks at a new French art exhibit/game which has an interesting approach to high-speed racing action: "[The title is] a racing game in which the screams of the crash-helmeted players power the vehicles. The loud they scream, the faster the racing vehicle travels. For maximum incredulity, check out this video demonstration. (950k MOV) We're vaguely expecting to see a Nintendo DS conversion of this in the coming year..." You can now read the full Gamasutra column on the subject, including fresh looks at faking reality for crickets, innovative Flash adventure games, and much more.
