Weekend Download №160 Confession: every writer behind the scenes at JIG is secretly some kind of mollusc. We hide it quite well, wearing suits and blazers and little thingies in our hair. But when you watch us walk, you start to wonder if something's a bit off. When you see us dance, you're sure of it.

The Vault №16 They say that games are like cheese - they get better (and smellier) with age. I've got some excellent vintage games in my little corner of The Vault, and you're free to enjoy them...once you get past my nefarious gauntlet of traps! I've got pits, hungry tigers, mimes...my depravity knows no bounds.

Mobile Monday №93 A little alchemy to go with your high-speed car drive out of town? Maybe you're more the brainy type. You know, the kind that goes to space with other cosmonauts, vacuums the shuttle while some all-powerful being guides you to the surface of alien planets. Either way, we've got you covered. Provided "covering" you means providing you with Android games. Which, well, that's how we meant it, so... there!

The Vault №14 "Will you step into my vault?" said the joye to the JayIsGames readers. And there she stopped, because the idea of attempting to parody the entire poem was the scariest thing she'd heard of this Halloween season. Nothing else could compare. Certainly not these three games. Nope. No disturbing underbelly to any of THESE games. Just pure, innocent Tuesday goodness.

From mummified birds to pirate parrots to fish whose only desire is to submerge themselves in gooey pink fluid, we've got a fresh batch of video games that showcase animals doing what animals do best; being complete weirdos.

Mobile Monday №90 One day, I will release an iPhone game. It will be a game about writing articles about iPhone games. You'll have to play a ton of games, try to manage your rage when yet another burp/bikini/fart app appears, and cry tears of joy when something original appears. After selecting your games, you'll sit down and compose an article complete with gorgeous screenshots and flowery prose as an introduction paragraph. When you're finished, you can make a game about writing iPhone game articles in the game and start the process anew. It will be the greatest, most infinite iPhone game ever!

Weekend Download №156 Fooling around with the titles of this week's selection of games, I discovered something unusual. If you rearrange the letters, you can create the phrase "a decarbonised djinn met musing". Now, that may seem a bit random on the surface, but if you think about it (especially if you're a djinn who has had his carbon removed), you'll either go mad or realize it's kind of a funny thing. But, whatever... GAMES!

Mobile Monday №78 A proper Victorian gentleman never swears or loses his temper. He should never fail to raise his hat to an acquaintance, and if he should bump into someone or step upon a lady's dress, a sincere "Beg your pardon" should be uttered. Also, fist bumps are appropriate only when in the company of other similarly-bodacious gentlemen.

Atmosphir After an extensive beta period where the game moved from a download to a browser-based Unity3D experience, the 3D platform adventure game Atmosphir is open and ready for everyone! Fueled by user-created content, Atmosphir allows anyone to craft custom levels using a simple, thorough, and surprisingly fun editor.

Weekend Download №145 One of the games featured on this Weekend Download is a product of the GameJolt Indie Game Demake Contest, a recently-completed competition that tasked game creators to strip their favorite indie game of anything more complex than a few elements and scale it down to a retro size. The results were excellent, and you can find dozens more to play on the contest page, including some browser games!

Link Dump Friday №175 It's Friday, and what better start could you ask for your weekend then snakes, toes, paint, and locked rooms? The only thing that might possibly make this week's Link Dump Friday assembly better is strawberry pancakes. So we sent you some! Keep an eye out for the soggy envelope; you can thank us later.

Mobile Monday №77 Some things in life you take for granted. Some things are always there and you never even stop to realize how important they are to you. These things fill a gap that only exists when they aren't there, leaving you free to live your life without disturbance. That is, until the day your keyboard goes on the fritz and you have to use a funky backup from the closet. Oh, ergonomic bliss, how your comfortable shape has molded my soul! Also: games are below.

Weekend Download №144 It's not often you find songs with lyrics in a video game. It's even less common that those lyrics explain how to play the game. Man Enough does both of those and somehow manages to squeeze in an image of a manly moustache between each round. Be impressed with catchy expositions!!!

Link Dump Friday №174 It's Friday, and where are you, dear reader? If your answer is anything other than "Kicking back in my fuzzy slippers with my beverage of choice and reading Link Dump Friday to get me primed for the weekend", well, then I am very disappointed in you! (Other acceptable answers include "Rescuing kittens from trees", "Writing a letter in support of fair-trade products", and "Rocking out with Tenacious D".) THIS WEEK: pixels, robots, Minoto, and coloured self-aware squares with haunting gazes forever locked in a featureless black void and unable to cry out for help before they blip out of their cold, lonely existence. Exciting!

Dubloon could easily keep you busy until Monday morning rolls around, but Surphasm is unique enough to deserve your attention. Rein is a great diversion when you're ready for an adventure that won't take you a week to complete.

It's a fine selection of games that were carefully analysed to make sure they were perfect for you and not at all thrown together in a frantic five minutes before this article was due. I love you too much for that!

Different outcomes to the stories you are playing are nothing new, but it isn't often that the games are short and entertaining enough to encourage you to gather them all. It's interesting to play through several times just to see how your actions affect the game world. Two of this week's games feature different endings, and you'll definitely want to experience some of these alternate conclusions!

When you don't have to attract a certain demographic to plop down cash for your game so you can keep your massive studio in California air conditioned, you're free to have fun and call your game Mr. Heart Loves You Very Much, Squid Yes! Not So Octopus!, or Punishment: The Punishing! We love you too, indie game creators!
