Kokoromi has today announced the six games selected for this year's Gamma IV showcase, the 'One Button Games'-themed showcase.

The chosen entries will make their debut at the Gamma IV party on Wednesday March 10th, and then be shown from March 11th-13th at the Gamma IV Pavilion on the GDC Expo Floor, with this part of the exhibition held in association with the organizers of the Game Developers Conference, the UBM Techweb Game Network.

The press release (with more information about the event) is as follows:

SAN FRANCISCO, March 7, 2010 – Montreal’s Kokoromi announces 6 new one button games.

Gamma IV, Kokoromi’s groundbreaking experimental videogame party, comes to San Francisco’s Mezzanine (444 Jessie Street) this Wednesday, March 10th, 2010. Kokoromi is pleased to announce six brand-new One Button Games, chosen from over 150 submissions, for this year’s Gamma:

Silent Skies by Spyeart
Poto & Cabenga by Honeyslug
4Fourths by Mikengreg
B.U.T.T.O.N. (Brutally Unfair Tactics Totally OK Now) by Copenhagen Game Collective
GAMMA IV - THE GAME by cactus
Faraway by Steph Thirion

This year presented a significant curatorial challenge for Kokoromi, given the exceptional quality and diversity of submissions to our “one-button games” call. The six games chosen demonstrate creative approaches to the one-button restriction, tailored to the unique challenges of Gamma’s “new arcade” format. Games will be displayed on large screen projections and set to music from Starpause (SF), Baiyon (Kyoto), Class Prez (ATX), and more.

From March 11th-13th, check out the One Button Games showcase at the Gamma IV Pavilion on the GDC Show Floor, presented in association with the Game Developers Conference.

On the evening of March 12th, come see One Button Objects, a collection of playful circuit hacked creations inspired by the Gamma4 theme, at Gray Area Foundation for the Arts (55 Taylor St. San Francisco).
