Stocking Stuffer Alert: East Village Video Games

Video games aren’t just sold in the East Village, they’re also set in it! The Lo-Down reprints a piece that originally appeared on Review Fix, about video game designer Dave Gilbert. The East Village native has created games like “The Shivah” (it’s set mostly in coffeehouses in Tribeca and the East Village and “follows a grieving Rabbi around the Lower East Side in an effort to save his struggling synagogue”) and “The Blackwell Saga,” which “follows a psychic detective and her spirit guide all over the East Village solving mysteries.”
