Play these Games…

Thursday, May 2nd, 2013 9:25 am

First of all, I finally hit my goal of playing and rating 10% of the games submitted: 235 games (yeah, I rounded up). Phew.

So many amazing games. I thought I’d suggest a few games that I’d like to see get more votes and that I haven’t seen featured:

We Dreamers

A game that kind of defies drescription. The best I could think of was: MMOP (Massive Multiplayer Online Poetry).

 

 

 

 

 

 Mystic Door

A beautiful platformer where the world forms around you. Plus adorable character animation. Left me wanting more.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 Less

An interesting game, where the narrative changes depending on what you choose to throw away and when.

 

 

 

 

 

There is no they

A simple game with complex themes.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Pursuit of Happiness

A game where narrative and mechanics flawlessly intertwine.

 

 

 

 

Mind the Gap

Brillant minamalist strategy game.  Don’t be deceived by it’s early slow pace.

 

 

 

 

 

CLRS

It’s a Paint-’em-up. Enough said.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Priorties

Minimize the unimportant things in your life. It hit home for me.

 

 

 

 

 

 

First, You Take A Potato

Behind the humor lies a powerful message. I’d recommend not reading the comments to avoid spoilers.

 

 

 

 

 

I just wanted to say thanks again to everyone for the wonderful games and thank you to everyone who makes Ludum Dare possible. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

 

Some Recommendations

Saturday, May 12th, 2012 4:05 am

Finally have rated 10% of all games and wanted to bring some attention to some entries I don’t think have enough love yet:

Tiny Colony

A delightful mash-up of ant life simulation, RPG and light strategy.

Zephyr

A beautiful, relaxing game. Also a good example of arcade mechanics fashioned for casual players.

Nineties Hollywood Hacker

An interesting game in two stages: stage one is where you fit together a series of circuits (ala Pipemania). Stage two you enter the circuits and must navigate yourself through the levels you have laid down, battling enemies, etc.

On Another Scale

Less emphasis on gameplay and more on the experience here: a beautiful, dreamlike world to navigate from one end to the other.

Tiny Worids

A super-fun word game take on the theme.

The World of Marceline

Again, this is less about ‘gameplay’ and more about an experience – in this case, the Holocaust. Very emotional.

Tiny’s World

I dare you to play this to the end AND NOT end up singing slong or collapsing in a heap of giggles.

Orbiter

Like a lot of other entries, this is towere defense that takes place on a tiny planet, but this one stood out to me: though maybe not as action packed as some of it’s bretheren, it has a chill, lego-esque vibe that resonated with me.

Extensionism

A moody puzzle game where the goal is to literally extend the borders of your tiny world.

And in the interest of shameless self promotion try my game, Tiny Planet:

9 out of 10 commenters agree that it will make your eyes bleed.
