Up for the Seumas McNally Grand Prize at this year’s IGF, Osmos is all about flying around space collecting energy balls to beef yourself up. However, in order to move around, you need to sacrifice part of your self to gain momentum.

An alpha demo is available to download from their official site. Give it a whirl and see what you make of it. I personally didn’t see what all the fuss is about, however it is only a demo, so I’m going to hold my tongue until I get to try the final version.
