Award for best videogame title goes to "aliensthatlooklikescrillex.tumblr.com"

This past weekend was Art Hack Day and by far, one of our favorite entrants comes from a team of employees from image-sharing community start-up Canv.as.  The title is:

“aliensthatlooklikeskrillex.tumblr.com”

Yes, that’s the title but also the name of the actual tumblr that’s about the game. I know, I know, marketing as tautology. It’s, naturally, a schmup which allows one player to pilot the ship while the boss ship is controlled by the DJ:

Aliens are trying to communicate with us through dubstep, we interpret these actions as hostile and go on the offensive. Destroy the aliens.

Man vs. DJ. A fight for the ages. Here’s live footage from the event:
