  • Social CaterpillarSocial Caterpillar —February 23, 2014— Social Caterpillar is a refreshingly original game about introversion, and goes about demonstrating what it's like by modelling the game's mechanics from it. Conversations with other characters take on the look and feel of an old-school RPG battle, but instead of attacking you're presented with some bizarre shape pattern or geometrical design and must use the [arrows] to navigate the conversation by choosing the appropriate shape or pattern in response.

  • Octodad: Dadliest CatchOctodad: Dadliest Catch —January 30, 2014— What started as a crazy student project has grown into a crazy indie game. Octodad: Dadliest Catch by Young Horses continues the mad premise first showcased in the 2010 tech demo, adding a storyline and loads of new environments to stumble around in. What should be a series of ordinary tasks end up being wacky hijinks in the world of Octodad. Think of it as QWOP in a 3D world and you've got a good idea for just how mad this game can be.

They have to be crafted one ingredient at a time, working their way from concept to prototype to playable alpha and eventually full release. This week's games are all early versions of games that are still baking in the oven. Not that you actually bake donuts or games, but you get the picture.
