I was finally able to play Carrion at PAX East this year. It is a game in which you play as a red, pulsing, monster that slithers along the ground in search of biomass. It sounds a bit disturbing, but it really satisfied my itch to essentially be the creature from John Carpenter’s The Thing. You aren’t all powerful as the creature, but you do have some awesome mobility. This mobility is pretty seamless in gameplay and soothes you in moments of frustration when your red blob is on fire. It remains to be seen how big you can get and what the overall story will be, but damn if it wasn’t fun as hell.
