Guide the little parcel to its destination! But instead of controlling the parcel, you control the level itself, using a series of pinball-esque switches.
A short and accessible digital boardgame about guiding the USA to zero emissions by the year 2050. By Molleindustria, who’s been doing this sort of thing for a long time and is really great at it.
Videogames are amazing at helping you understand how a complicated system works. Nothing beats the act of just playing with the pieces yourself, and seeing how it all fits together! The path to a zero emissions future is gonna require a lot of juggling – and, uh, not getting sidetracked by the Nuclear Fusion pipedream, maybe.
An education puzzle game about paying for stuff with coins, so that you end up with as few coins as possible remaining in your pocket. “Many tourists in Japan gather a truly absurd amount of coins. Last year 17 tourists drowned in Tokyo bay, unable to swim, burdened with excess coinage”, or so the game claims!
It’s weird (and surprisingly fun) to have to take a step back and manually think through this process that we do all the time without really thinking about it.
Ahhh, it’s a new sunil broughlike!
Sunil mentions on his blog (where he’s written a very nice post about this game) that he takes a week off work each year to make a new game for 7DRL – last year he made Mosaic with Corey Hardt, which was one of my favourite games of the year. The year before, he made Escorial, which I also loved. So this is quite a hat trick! Highly recommended.

I recommend reading Eevee’s “gradually-unfolding list of tips” once you’ve played through the level!
