SZA, singer
SZA, singer

"Open Arms" is a song by American singer-songwriter SZA (pictured) from her second studio album, SOS (2022), featuring American rapper Travis Scott. It is one of the album's guitar-backed acoustic ballads, exploring a style of music that departs from SZA's usual R&B-leaning sound. Her deceased grandmother, whose vocals were in the album preceding SOS, appears in the song as a way of paying tribute. With lyrics about trying to stay with an ex-lover, "Open Arms" is addressed to a subject whom the narrator eventually leaves to fix her self-esteem despite persistent feelings of attachment to him. Upon release, it charted in the United States, Canada, and Australia, and it peaked at number 67 on the Billboard Global 200. The song is SZA's fourth collaboration with Scott, whose uncharacteristically gentle delivery on his verse was received positively by critics. A solo version was released in January 2023 as a track on the website-exclusive digital edition of SOS. (Full article...)

The Nuovo Award is given at the Independent Games Festival (IGF), an annual event that takes place during the Game Developers Conference, one of the largest gatherings of the indie video game industry. The award is given to honor "abstract, shortform, and unconventional game development which advances the medium and the way we think about games". It was designed as a way for art games to compete with traditional indie games. In the thirteen years since its debut, 99 games have been nominated as finalists, while 79 games have been chosen as honorable mentions. Fifteen games have won the Nuovo Award, the first being the platformer Between (2009), developed by Jason Rohrer (pictured), while the most recent game to be awarded is the role-playing video game Betrayal at Club Low (2023), developed by Cosmo D.
