Indie Game Revolution opened November 8th at Seattle’s Experience Music Project.

The exhibit features a ton of playable indie games, including the critically acclaimed Gone Home. Another standout was Roflpillar, a game where you control the movement of a caterpillar with a controller attached to your waist. Players lie down in colorful sacks and put their heads in a small tent. A screen on the roof of the tent shows the game, and the player rolls from side to side to direct the caterpillar towards delicious apples.

There are also developer interviews and timelines detailing the history of the game industry. Whether you want to play or learn, Indie Game Revolution is a definite must-see.
