Gish Developer Cryptic Sea’s First Person Hockey Game [Free Beta]

While Cryptic Sea slaves away at the IGN/GameSpy Open House, developer Alex Austin trades his balls for pucks in this quickly thrown together, fun experiment. He says Hockey? took about a week to create. After seeing it in motion, I walk away surprised that the concepts of two games I play very little could combine to catch my interest.

For this reason, I post about this hockey game and publicly ask more devs to experiment with lesser combined concepts to give everyone new ideas to entertain. Check out the game in motion:

I’m hoping DIYGamer’s resident hockey fan (Geoff, I mean you) checks this out to give it a more in-depth impression along with you readers. Tell me what you think after you try Cryptic Sea’s free first person Hockey? title.
