Noio’s Kingdom is a surprisingly simple game, the mechanics consisting only of building and upgrading defense, hiring troops and those nightly waves of noodling trollfaces that try to destroy you. Nonetheless it has a certain something about it that easily keeps you playing for half an hour. The game’s atmosphere draws from the soft music and the slight variations in the daily sun light and moon-shine, sometimes it goes completely off-colour, intensifying the nightly urgency. This makes it one of the few games you keep making screenshots, simply because it’s so beautiful.
7dFPS happened quite a while ago and I didn’t look through all the entries, but somehow Super Hot must have slipped past everyone’s attention. A tweet by the faux Peter Molydeux fixed this.
Super Hot fixes a problem I have with FPS games, they are just too fast for me. I like my games at a reasonable speed and in Super Hot it only moves when I do move. Brilliant idea.
racing! vectors! colours! on a globe!
Follow it on IndieDB, might be released one day…
Eastward Quest has made an amazing journey and seems to come to a finish. A side-scroller hack’em’up game with all the particle effects, screen shaking and surely sounds that a fun game needs.
Just compare these two gifs from the very earliest and very latest development.
Thought I’ve played all ludum dare entries, did you? Nope, I completely missed this beautiful puzzle game More is Less by Atrax Games.
The colours you see in the puzzle are sand, liquid and other things I can’t really describe. Sometimes they react with each other. Your task is to get the stuff shifted and reach the counters on the side, so a yellow 70 means you need to get 70 sand off the screen.
Not at all game related but we do some love happy ascii art, don’t we?
It is a puzzler, you flip blocks by tapping them, with a tap also some surrounding blocks flip and block of different colour cause different flip patterns. Simple really but I had to surrender at the Wizzard level. Apropos levels, they do paint a story which is rare with puzzle games.
