In the "don't miss this game" category I'd like to nominate EPHEMERID this week.
It's a musical experience unlike anything else and it's so good.

Is this a game or more of an experience? I watched a couple if videos, but I found it hard to tell.

More of an experience but it's a very good, well made experience. Beautiful, even.

Only 6 levels in and taking it slow in case it goes too quick. Each level once completed is accessed via a portion on 12 inch vinyl that is accessed by spinning the vinyl. That alone is worth the entrance money for me. Took me about 30 minutes to do 6 levels and I fear that there may only be twelve - one for each inch of vinyl - although I'm keeping my fingers crossed that it's a double album as most concept albums used to be.

I haven't played the final version yet (though I did buy it), but I played this at SXSW and it was incredible. It's more an experience than a game, but like listening to your favorite album, it's one you can have over and over again. Highly recommended.
