If you haven’t played these games yet, PLAY THEM. I don’t hand out 5’s for Overall very easily, but each of these games earned it and are the only ones I’ve given them to thus far.

1. Hot Diggity by DragonXVI


Simply amazing! This ain’t your typical driller game people! As you dig farther and farther to escape the Devourer of planets, you can collect ore to upgrade your ship with four different parts. Learning how to balance ship structure, piece selection, and your heat levels has a subtle but deep strategy to it and was fun and engaging for me; the game has been up in my browser for about a week now.

2. Deep Blue Home by Jools64

The overall level of the presentation, polish and execution is what sold it for me. The unique underwater physics and the creative use of a small set of moves is just great. It may not be the bastion of innovation, but its spot-on atmosphere and vibe coupled with its simple gameplay makes for such a well-nailed experience.

3. Substratum by Ian McLarty

Do NOT let the strange visual effects fool you. It may be hard to explain, but this surreal puzzle platformer forges a strangely compelling atmosphere backed by interesting puzzle mechanics that can be challenging to wrap your head around. Despite its bizarre style, I found it surprisingly hard to put down! Just play it for yourself to see what I mean.


So go on. What are you waiting for? Play them.

And if you haven’t played mine yet, give Sub Terraria Zero a go-round too and let me know what you think of it as well. Thanks!
