The Six Sides Of Terry Cavanagh

Super Hexagon is a videogame on the app store. 

It's loved, it's addictive, it's acclaimed - it's also insanely difficult - inspiring fierce competition amongst its players.

One of Super Hexagon's biggest fans and top players, EDGE magazine features editor Jason Killingsworth - will be coming face to face with its creator Terry Cavanagh armed with questions about its conception, creation and merciless design. 

Terry also takes pains to ensure that he's always at, or near the top of the Super Hexagon high-score table provoking fierce competition between the creator and his players. Following this session, Terry will be challenging you all (not least Jason, also an expert player) to a Super Hexagon tournament on the festival big screen.
