Antbassador is a physics platform game by Kevin Zuhn and his team that has been declared the winner of the Ludum Dare 30 72 hour "Connected Worlds" game jam. It stars a giant top hat-wearing finger trying desperately to make a good impression on a colony of ants, and often failing. The QWOP-style comedy of political frustrations may not be for everyone, but it has more than it's fair share of hilarious ant-tics.
Play as the Schicklgruber brothers, two boys in a trenchcoat and silly mustache as they stumble and flail their way first to greatness and then to crushing, history-changing failure. Not for those who feel there are some things you just don't joke about.
You Are Not A Banana: Chapter 1 is a game about everyday life. It was built by Brian Cullen and is filled more than its fair share of humor, tossing the supremely average protagonist into a series of mudane situations made extraordinary by the puzzles and arcade sequences you'll complete in order to make it through the day. It's a bit like Super Amazing Wagon Adventure, only you get to play as a banana for a bit.
It is the year 1959B. You are Polyblank, spy extraordinaire. In Necrophone Games' first person comedy adventure game, Jazzpunk, you are tasked with a variety of missions from infiltrating the Soviet Consulate to doing something involving a mechanical pig. Each mission will take you into a strange new world with an overabundance of objects to interact with. How are these missions connected? What is the big picture here? Is there one?
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.
Lights... camera... URK. Lottie's got a problem the night of her big stage audition, and she's not willing to go down without a fight. Sarah Morayati's snappily written interactive fiction piece about teenage girls under the limelight suffers slightly from some unintuitive puzzle design, but is easily carried by a memorable cast of characters and some genuinely funny storytelling. Broken Legs is an over-the-top and snarky adventure worth a look from anyone who has at any point ever been a teenager, stereotypes aside.
