Way Too Casual: A Podcast <br />about Flash Games! The JayIsGames staff along with FlashGameLicense have finally gone mad and decided to start a podcast! We call it Way Too Casual because, well, that's what we are. The bi-weekly episodes will focus on casual gaming news, events, reviews and lots more. We have some great surprises planned for future episodes. It's a great way to keep up on the biggest browser game releases and current events in the world of casual gaming. All while you go on your morning jog!

Casual Gameplay Design Competition #7! We're pleased to announce a very special Casual Gameplay Design Competition, one focused entirely on interactive fiction! For CGDC #7, we're calling on IF authors to craft one-room games incorporating the theme "escape". It's text-only this time around, so you can spend your time polishing puzzles instead of pixels. Full details are below, so fire up your Z-code compiler and get to writing!

And the winner is... Our 6th competition today comes to a close and we are here to honor all of the games that were entered, as well as award a few prizes, too. The "explore" theme proved a formidable challenge, while one entry captivated and moved the indie games community with its tiny worlds of pixel art.

Mobile Monday Puzzle games YAY. I like puzzle games because they are puzzles. I also like them because you can play them really fast. I also like them because you do not have to play them a long time. I like puzzle games on the iPod Touch because I can play them laying down on my couch. I also like apple pie ice cream.

Link Dump Friday This week on Link Dump Friday, we give thanks. Thanks to aliens for always trying to steal our cows. Thanks to robots who help us succumb to the beat. Thanks to bunnies with eerily photogenic smiles. And thanks, most of all, to the men, women, and alien hive-minds of the casual gameplay industry for bringing us games and not enslaving our race.

Mobile Monday OMG IT'S SPACE ACE! We've come a long way from starry-eyed kids standing in a sticky-floored mall arcade drooling over the beautiful images on the screen. And you could "play" the game! With just a quarter! Now a pile of those quarters will buy you the game outright, a portable version you can have and hold and cuddle all the day and night long. Sticky, candy-covered floor optional.

Mobile Monday Some classic games from several platforms have made their way to the iPhone, making pull-out-of-your-pocket-and-play much easier than before (laptops aren't so pocket friendly). Vector Park has finally dabbled in the iTunes App Store, and a familiar Facebook game also makes its iPhone debut. OH! And there's Worms!

Weekend Download Ohhhhh, sometimes I can't get enough of that old-school retro-styled CRT TV in the living room playing games when I'm supposed to be learning my multiplication tables goodness! An incredibly low-res Quake-inspired game is a heavy dose of nostalgia, but pile on top of that a short Lucas Arts-style adventure game and an unofficial sequel to a near-forgotten NES title, stick a Post-It note on the front, and you've got a recipe for a relaxed weekend.

Link Dump Friday This week on Link Dump Friday: "They want me to do WHAT?" Be awesome in a helicopter, blast water at helpless roly-poly critters, defend a forest using heavy artillery, and more! It doesn't have to make sense to be fun! In fact, we highly recommend a daily dose of the nonsensical, the ridiculous, or the just plain weird.

Mobile Monday The iTunes App Store just turned one year old, bringing over 13,000 games to mobile players who like to keep their fingers busy smudging their handheld devices. Of course, not all of those games are worth your time and money, which is why Mobile Monday highlights the best of the best each week. We'll play the duds, you just go and have fun!

Weekend Download The Experimental Gameplay Project has returned! Originally started by Kyle Gabler and Kyle Gray, the site encourages rapid prototyping of new gameplay concepts in a short period of time. World of Goo began as an experimental game called Tower of Goo, so you can see how much creative potential an idea like this has.

Link Dump Friday This week, Link Dump Friday encourages you to forget the past, don't worry about the future, and live in the moment! Incidentally, this moment contains evil militant teddy bears, how not to behave as royalty, a lesson in pityin' foos, and more. In fact, the only thing better than this moment will be next week's moment! But for now, let's just cherish the time we have together and... wait, you're playing games, aren't you?! Are you even listening? *sigh*

Weekend Download: <br />Soooo Close Edition Our goal is to bring you only the games that are worth playing, meaning most of these titles are left in the forgotten realm of Didn't Quite Make It land. This is especially true with downloadable games, as it's a bit more of a commitment to buy a game than just click on a link and play. Some games look good, play well, and are entertaining enough to be featured, but for one reason or another they just didn't make the cut. Here are a few games that are, by all rights, excellent titles to play, but for one reason or another didn't quite get their own review.

Link Dump Friday This week in Link Dump Friday: the arcade! Bastion of fun and hope for young and old alike in an urban wasteland? Or secret lair of an ancient race of mole people from deep within the earth's crust? Unless you tune in this week for plants, turrets, swords, and more, you may never know. And Jay will get all the high scores to himself. We can't have that, now, can we?

Mobile Monday While I'm a big fan of retro games, developers have yet to convince me that a touch screen is an adequate replacement for a physical controller. With a touch screen you get no tactile feedback, and I feel that ruins many iPhone games. This week we have several titles whose controls are better without d-pads and buttons. And believe me, that's a tough fact for me to admit!

Mobile Monday Big game developers continue to flock to the iTunes App Store to offer portable versions of some of their best-known games. Electronic Arts is no stranger to any gaming platform, and some very recognizable titles can now have a home on your system. The prices aren't always as friendly as they could be, but sometimes it's worth a little extra cash to get the glitz and glamor a large studio can provide.
