An earnest “Wolfenstein 3D”-like with some modern influences! The gameplay is fluid and immediately fun, the art colourful and full of personality, the music and sound design is great as well. It has a story too, which is slight, but kind of charming – you play as a time traveller chasing another time traveller through time. I like how it uses the time travel thing to justify its old school game mechanics.
BB is back (this time, with her sister ZZ) to explore a new mystery in the latest “… of the killer” game!
I don’t know if the plan is to eventually put these in some kind of collection or what, but if you’ve been holding off for that: I wouldn’t! Think of each game like an episode of a weird cartoon-murder-mystery series – you really don’t have to start from episode one. It’s time to jump in!
A fantastic parody of The Witness, made by someone who clearly loves The Witness. You explore a mysterious island and solve pen-and-paper-style maze puzzles. But it’s less about the mazes and more about what’s going through your head as you solve the mazes, you know?
This is a playable webcomic with a really expressive point and click interface! It’s a series of short dream-like scenes, which are part of a larger series of webcomics by the author called Onironauta.
Logjam is a lumberjack simulator – logs appear for you to chop, and you chop them, TWACK! Sometimes other things need chopping too. There’s a little timing challenge in chopping things just right, which feels really satisfying to master.
This is the newest game in Robert Yang’s series of games about gay sexuality – a series which includes, among other things:
Cobra Club: A dick-pic simulator about privacy and body image.
Stick Shift: A driving simulator about sex in videogames.
The Tearoom: A cottaging simulator about censorship and police surveillance.
These games are smart, funny, and incredibly well made! If you haven’t played any of them before, you’re in for a treat – I recommend checking out Robert’s blogpost about this one after you’ve played it.
(Content warning: This game has a penis in it, and you can see the penis.)
