Mobile Monday №150 RPGs and pretty physics games and... SONIC! So much to consume on this edition of Mobile Monday. So much. Sooooo much. Hmm. Maybe too much? Yeah, a bit. Maybe just pretend these three games are two games, one of which has an unusual growth on the side that looks, acts, and plays like a different game? That's not too much to handle is it?

The 99 Percent Bundle Bundling up indie games is what all the cool kids are doing these days, as is pricing them "pay what you want" while donating portions of the proceeds to charity. But here's something refreshingly different: The 99 Percent Bundle. This totally free collection of indie games aims to highlight some of the lesser-known developers out there, the people who continue to make the games they love and release them for free. It's sort of the indies of the indie community, and it's the perfect way to discover new titles you might have missed over the last few months.

Weekend Download №216 Hey—hi there! Welcome! Come on it, have a seat. Would you like a warm beverage? Cold one? Just a handful of games? All right, that's fine too. Although the hot cocoa is stunning... Anyway! You asked for games, and so you get them. One game to make you scratch your head, one game where you can shoot Mecha Santa, and one game where you can learn to be a thief. Game enough for you? No? Maybe some hot cocoa would fill the void, then?

And by "studio" I of course mean "a polite, sterile digital exchange because Jay vetoed my plans to demolish his house and build a studio where I would interview after being trained by James Lipton".

Letters In Boxes: The Basics Perhaps you've been wandering through the endless corridors of this website and found a "game" that seemed to be little more than a picture of gibberish text in a grid. "Surely," you think, "there's got to be more than meets the eye here." And there is! You've stumbled upon Letters In Boxes, a (usually) weekly feature here on Jay Is Games. If you love a good word puzzle with some tricky twists tossed in, you'll want to keep an eye out for new editions. But if you're new to the game and looking for instructions to get started, here's a little guide to help you out.

From a soul-searching sea monster to a bustling island, to stately women slugging it out for respect, these are all games that might be a little different, but are more than a little memorable and awesome.

Weekend Download №213 As much as designers and players would love it to be true, games don't appear out of magical elf dust. They take hours, weeks, months and years to create, stitching together every line of code and every piece of artwork. To that end, many programmers and studios have taken to releasing alpha and beta games to drum up support, snagging players early to help with feedback and bug reports while the developer gets to continue drinking coffee and coding. Everybody wins, and we get more games, better games, and games at a more rapid pace!

The Vault №67 It's Tuesday, which means another trip down to the JIG archive vault to dig up a few games from years ago that our newer visitors should not miss out on. This week I've picked out a few quirky little puzzle games that will thrill and delight you. No, really. Just give them a try and you'll see...

Mobile Monday №143 Mobile games are strange, aren't they? On the one hand, they shouldn't be so complicated you can't get into them while, ahem, occupying the lavatory. On the other, they need to have enough complexity to keep you from doing your homework the night before it's due. There's no right or wrong solution, just a collection of gameplay concepts that either works or doesn't quite work. We're proud to report that every game we feature on Mobile Monday works quite well, the end result being lots of late homework assignments but no time wasted in the loo.

The Vault №60 I can't get no.... satisfaction. I can't get no... gaming action. But I try! And I try! And I try! And I try!... and I realize that I can probably just look to the JiG archives for all the games I could ever want. Take that, double negative! This week in The Vault we've got three action games that are sure to fire your imagination.

Mobile Monday №136 Subtitles: what do they add to your game? In the case of Samurai Bloodshow, they add about 30 letters, a trip to your French dictionary, and some artistic imagery. In the case of Sprinkle, they tell you exactly what to expect from the game. So, in the spirit of game subtitles, this edition of Mobile Monday has a subtitle. Mobile Monday: it's got games you can play!

If you're a fan of the site, you're probably familiar with one of them in particular, but all three are fantastic little tales ripe for the picking. Or clicking. Whichever.

The Vault №58 Some times while gazing up at the celestial firmament, I realize that, out there in this big world of ours, there are thousands of unlucky 8 month-olds who have never experienced a JiG Casual Game Design Competition. It's a tragedy really. And while those poor tots might not be required to wait too much longer, we can takes some comfort in the 9 previous CGDC iterations each provide more than the daily requirement of epic that growing children need. This week, the JiG Vault features some personal favorites from past competions. Future entrants take note: you've got some tough acts to follow.

The Vault №57 The visual technology of gaming is advancing at a pace like never before, reaching heights of graphical complexity never before seen. Developers no longer have to use programming "cheats" to create 3D effects... but still we respect the skill of those who wanted to and did. This week, the JiG Vault features three excellent pseudo-3D games from our archives. It may have been five years since their graphics were cutting-edge, but fun is timeless.

Still, when I get the urge to be a heroic guitarist, a revolutionary dancer, or an elite agent of beat, no one can stop me from having the volume go up to 11. To quote Dire Straits: I want my JiG! This week in The Vault, lets give a round of sound for three games whose awesome audio is music to my ears.
