Grey

Today we’re checking out another game from the Global Game Jam 2015. Gray by developer Jovcem is a first person puzzle/platformer/exploration game where players must use stretchy cubes to solve traversal puzzles leading to a lighthouse off in the distance.

The Womb

Today we’re going to have a look at a rather unique first-person exploration game called The Womb by developer Outlands. We’ll explore a “womb” to find bits and pieces of writing with which we can begin to assemble a narrative with hopefully some kind of message for the player. Check out The Womb for “pay-what-you-want” […]

Night Tune

Today we’re going to check out Night Tune by developer Pol Clarissou. Essentially this is a “listen to music and nod off to sleep while in the passenger seat of a car” simulator. It’s a wildly specific thing, but I found it very pleasant and I figured at least a few of you out there […]

I’m Null

*Mature Content Warning* Today we’re going to check out I’m Null by developers Zak Ayles, Devin Horsman & Robin Arnott. I like to think of it as an interactive virtual art installation with some emergent qualities. There might be other real players, maybe there aren’t… it’s tough to tell. Sometimes you can explore the world […]
