- Regular GSW readers may recall that Vinny Carrella's column for Gamezebo is one of my favorite pieces of game writing on the web, and his latest, 'The Game That Changed The World', is no exception.

He explains: "There are these magic moments in life when a work of art seems as if it's sent to you by the gods. It hits you in just the right way at just the right time, and usually when you need it the most - Walt Whitman's Song of Myself, Bob Dylan's Blood on the Tracks, Francis Ford Coppola's Apocalypse Now, J.D. Salinger's Catcher in the Rye - and it's cathartic, it's life-altering. After you see them or hear them or read them, you look at things differently. You change. It happens most often to me with music or books, but in games it's rare. Yet it did happen. Twice."

And? "The first time was in 1992 and that moment is tattooed on my brain. I remember it so clearly. It was a little-known adventure game called Out of This World [aka Another World], from a French studio named Delphine. It came on five floppies. There was no manual and no tutorial. The box was cryptic and offered little in the way of assistance to my understanding of game-play or plot. I had no idea what I was about to play. I was taking a chance. Little did I know I was pulling the cover off a masterpiece."

Now, the second game that changed Vinny's world is Snapshot Adventures: Secret Of Bird Island, a brand new game that a) nobody has really spotted so far and b) Vinny helped produce, but I actually think that the Large Animal-developed title looks pretty darn interesting (a Pokemon Snap-styled bird photography casual game!), so I'm pretty convinced that this is genuine conviction on his part, rather than hyping. Nice.
