So, I managed to rate 100 games and I wanted to share four games which stood out for me not by mechanics or gameplay but by the unique experience I had with them. They weren’t even much fun most of the time but great in their own ways. So, let’s go!

One of these “mood” games, but it does so much right: Awesome pixel graphics, awesome (and tasteful) post-processing, awesome audio design and … it has a cat.

Minimalistic but very dynamic (!!! this makes a huge difference) graphic design, dense audio and a very clear tutorial made this stand out for me.

The game is kind of bad. But wtf the graphics, especially that warped perspective. Not a game I want to win LD but surely one I can’t forget.

I have a confession to make: I don’t like most of the 3D Ludum Dare games, simply because it’s too hard to create a pleasing conventional 3D environment in that time. I loved this game, because it took stuff that’s technically very easy to do in 3D and created something unique and aesthetically pleasing.

 

This was my very personal pick of the 100 games I rated. If you haven’t played it yet you can also try out my game Ballkeeper.
