I found LD28 incredibly fun, not just because it was the first time I submitted my own game to the compo, but also because I made myself play at least 100 games to get a feel of the kind of stuff the community is making. The stuff you guys come out with is properly amazing. So for this blog post, I’d like to mention my top 6 favourite games out of the 100 that I played (both from the Compo and the Jam).

I’m a stickler for polish and “completeness”, as you can probably tell from my choices.

So in no particular order…

1. Underbyte

Shows what happens when you fall down a bottomless pit in Mario! Amazing platformer, and beautiful pixel art

2. The Pilot Jameson

This guy pretty much recreated Elite/X/space trading RPG. So much depth for a jam game!

3.  GRAIL

Beautiful art and gameplay that reminds me of Another World. Very addictive!

4. 1111 pt 1

You only get one took ultra literally. My favourite bit about this game is the player ship, comprised of every growing 1.

5. Jump Chip

Unique game mechanics and really really polished art, sound and music. Level design feels like its been playtested for months not days!

6. TITAN SOULS

4 extremely difficult bosses set in an open world reminiscent of Zelda and the Shadow of Colossus. What’s not to like?
