Something about the theme of minimalism has really brought out the creativity in people. The quality this Ludum Dare is through the roof. Here’s a few of my favourites so far.

A very fun nes-style platform game where the main character loses abilities as the game progresses. Excellent use of the theme, a fantastic art style and wonderful music.  There was a bug in the original game but it’s since been fixed in the post-compo version.

Very nicely polished game with lots of attention to detail. There are some great little nods later in the game to classic arcade games.

Join takes a very simple idea (snake) and builds nicely upon it to create a unique action-puzzle game. Quite difficult but still lots of fun.

Another game with a very simple concept but really nice execution. Very pretty visuals and nice sound design.

I have no idea how such beautiful animations were created in such short time but somehow Joe and Rob did it. Well worth a look.
