I made a list of games you should play!

1) printΒ this poster out

2) and as you play your final games,

3) find their thumbnail in the mosaic and cross ’emΒ out!


You may enjoy finding my own game in there too… PukeMan! πŸ˜‰

Happy hunting πŸ˜€

(UPDATE: a blog post reportingΒ recent attempts at improving the mosaic making algorithms)

    (5 min later)

  22. What a fantastic idea! great job man!

  23. This is awesome, I remember seeing the mosaic from one of the previous LD’s. Glad to see it’s still a thing :) I think I see mine… very close to the center, about 5 or so away. But it’s kind of hard to tell… *squints*…. is there a higher resolution version of this? The pixel artifacts make it difficult to see the details.

  24. Zarkith says:

    Sweet! I managed to find mine! πŸ˜€

    Good thing I started from the bottom row or it would’ve taken ages.

  25. hellforge says:

    We found our Game after a wile πŸ˜€ Awesome idea!

  26. rojo says:

    Always cool to see these!

  27. Adreqi says:

    Found mine at (35;38).

  28. TheBigShot says:

    Awesome found mine in there :)

  29. hexagore says:

    Oh thank goodness. Finally found it. I thought you’d defeated me this time… I need more contrast in my screenshots, obviously πŸ˜›

  30. Hey found mine on the far right! πŸ˜€

  31. Hyoga-3D says:

    Yeah! after awhile I found Space Boy.

  32. scumbly says:

    Sweet, found Monkey Pop! (Just to the left of the “N”)

  33. Bitterdeath says:

    A high resolution poster size of this would make an amazing wall piece. Oh and I found my game! :)

  34. Techblogogy says:

    I’m wondering, how did you get all of the thumbnails?

  35. igorfelga says:

    Found The Calcannon! Great Job.

  36. jayson says:

    Great thanks. Found our game AgentQR also :)

  37. funisfun8 says:

    Was mine one of the ones with the broken thumbnail? I can’t find it. I searched the entire image and deleted the pictures in paint.net as I went. Did I goof somewhere?

  38. Timm638 says:

    So we should play all games?
    I found mine and it isn’t very… qualitativ.

  39. Jezzamon says:

    Question: How did you download the screenshots? A html scraper?

    I ask because I was thinking of looking at all the thumbnails and giving them ratings, and also to get ideas of what makes a good thumbnail. I haven’t put any effort into trying to do that yet though.

  40. Filoox says:

    I found mine “Mosquito attack” ! Great poster.

  41. Deozaan says:

    After going row by row, I finally found mine. If you go down from Pac-Man’s mouth, you’ll see two that stand out. One looks like a tooth, and one just above it appears to say “DUPE”

    Mine is one up and to the right of the DUPE image. πŸ˜€

  42. Lyxilion says:

    Great ! I think that my game is in (13;-2) if (0;0) is in top left :)

  43. AlcoTk says:

    Seeing my game in this poster made my day! :)

  44. HunterAugust says:

    Nine down, eleven to the right is mine! This is pretty awesome!

  45. ruerob says:

    One thing I love about LD is your images and the search for the games I’ve played on it. Mine is (17;11) if (1,1)is the top right corner! Great picture!
