    Some under-the-radar favorites

    Hey all – wanted to share a few cool games I’ve run across that I haven’t seen getting a lot of mentions on blogs and whatnot:

    Tiny Worlds by Lidfrid

    Fling your planetoid between the orbits of larger planetoids, collecting material and mass along the way. Accompanied by a weird-but-catchy acapella soundtrack.

    Love in the Time of Fishbowls by octaviogood

    Match fish by their mating calls, with a fun / thought-provoking story between successive generations of fish.

    Antopia by pgil

    A zelda-like with an excellent soundtrack. The queen is dying – find a sword and go kill some spores and stuff.

    Cruel Space by Stalker_23b

    Probably the best graphically I’ve seen so far. Hop between planets buying upgrades and annihilating various meatboy-looking creatures.


    Also thanks for all the positive feedback on my game Microbial – for those who haven’t checked it out,  it’s a weird 3D rendered action/puzzle game with 40 levels of cells, viruses, polyps, and a tumor megaboss:


    Hope to put together a post-mortem in the next day or two for it.
