Alexey Pajitnov, the genius that created Tetris, has just given mankind a brand new and quite analog game: Stitch & Cross. Stitch & Cross, a sewing racing game, uses only a needle, thread and fabric as input device and was good enough to overshadow Harvey Smith's (of Deus Ex fame) storytelling The Tailor's Daughter needle & thread game and David Jaffe's totally unrelated to God of War (or God of War II for that matter) entry. Entry? Yes, entry. At the GDC Game Design Challenge, no less. A challenge that Alexey Pajitnov apparently won.
Intrigued? Good, that's a healthy response. Thankfuly there's more to read over @ Gamasutra.
