What's this? HopFrog's brought us this shiny and colorful exploration game with resource management and crafting elements! Thrown together in just a couple of weeks for the GMS2Jam, Forager has all the animation and sound effects you'd want to make for a thoroughly enjoyable gaming experience, and it's even procedurally-generated for maximum replayability. Explore the landscape, find resources, build facilities and learn to build new things! There are trees to harvest, stone and minerals to mine, treasure chests to find which give not just cash but your choice between permanent upgrades, and fish and herbs for replenishing your energy. Then build discharge stations to help you mine automatically! We thought more people deserved to hear about Forager, and we'd love to see what it could become with even more development!
While making my way through the net, looking for flash games to play, I've found this little gem. The game Rullo by Elihu Gideon and developed by Crescentyr, is one of those games that follow the concept of simple rules, but challenging game.
Note: this game has been reviewed in August. One week ago, the developer and Akkad published an iOS and android version of the game with more features.
It's the winter of 1972. In Rusty Lake's latest instalment of the disturbing Cube Escape series, the protagonist rows across the lake to a strange cave full of weird and wonderful goodies, including a dog (how long has it been in there?) and an unfortunate diver who needs your help.
Fans of the series will recognise Rusty Lake's signature surrealist style and weird creepiness in this latest game. After entering the cave, use the mouse to explore your surroundings and collect items to help you escape. The puzzles are a mix of utilising items and mini-game style puzzles, which keeps things interesting. There are a few gruesome moments, so be prepared for that if you are a little squeamish.
Welcome to the trichromatic puzzle world of Theihe's Color Me Young Kaleido. You will discover steps, portals, and any number of traps out to get you. Your main ability is changing the color of the backdrop, causing elements good and bad to fade into the background. Your objective is to navigate to the box-like element and complete each level, progressing to the next. The game uses standard platform mechanics, with [WASD] or arrow keys to move around. Number keys (1, 2, 3) change the background color but be careful not to morph straight into a hazard! In some of the later levels, it is possible to irreparably mess up, which is where a quick reset [R] comes in handy.
Common theme for this week is poultry. Really. You are not escaping a poultry farm, but some domestic fowl is involved in each game. In the first one from daba you are a huge and apparently very clever rooster. In Yonashi´s game you find a rooster´s figurine in the laboratory during the escaping process. And in beautiful Kamotokamotokamo´s game you have to fulfill some tasks for two cute duckies.
Have a good time and enjoy!
BOO! Did I scare you? No? Well not to worry, FMStudio is here with a new chapter of their Forgotten Hill saga that will fill you with proper terror. But before we go further, you might want to get in the mood by playing the first two games in this haunting series: Forgotten Hill: Fall where you had the brilliant idea to invite yourself into a house with the lights turned off and its continuation, Forgotten Hill: Puppeteer.
It's a familiar story for many of us old enough to have lived it. Mae Borowski, 20 years old and newly a college dropout, returns to her hometown of the formerly prosperous mining town of Possum Springs in Western Pennsylvania, only to find that the train station is closed and her parents have forgotten to come pick her up.
Have you ever had the experience of an impending feeling of dread after taking an exam? That lead weight in your stomach telling you that you probably flunked? One course of action might be to study better for the next exam. But if you're Gideon, you have a friend Joe with a far more radical solution: summon a demon to do your bidding and make your teacher, Ms. Rage, give you an A+++ on your exams!
Carmel Games delivers their usual mix of colorful graphics, wit, and puzzles in The Ritual - Part 1. You'll need to think outside the box, pillow, whatever, to track down the three needed ingredients and summon the demon. And if this just isn't enough for you, well, stay tuned - rumor has it there is a part 2 along the way!
If being a cuddly adorable creature just isn't enough for you, how about being several? Aladar presents Eatvolve, an indie action game about augmenting yourself with the biological characteristics of the creatures around you — and which may or may not be intended as a depiction of how we become like the people we socialize with. Thwomp the creatures around you and you'll get a particule effect which imbues you with their particular form and abilities: nab that butterfly to gain some colorful wings, or that beetle for some nifty chitinous headgear that can help you get through stone. As you take on the qualities of the local fauna your form gradually shifts, and it's done on such an authentic piecemeal basis that the transitions are smooth and seem viable, and pretty cute too! We've included a few examples of what you can become in the main graphic for this review; they don't all appear in Eatvolve at once, but you can also come up with plenty of other possibilities through trial and error. This game is available in Pay What You Want format, including free. If you enjoy the game, show your support for the developer who made it by paying what you think is fair!
This week, MayMay wants you to locate that elusive USB that always seems to go missing at the bottom of your junk drawer. TomoLaSiDo has stolen a couple of key components of your bicycle. And Amajeto thinks your culinary skills could use some work, so they've sent you off to cooking classes.
Remember that cringe-worthy thing you said to that really important person that one time? How about the time you took a tumble in front of your entire school? Or when you slept through your alarm and were late to a job interview?
Wouldn't it be great if you could manipulate time and make those moments disappear?
Are you ready for a treasure hunt? I sure hope so, because ExperaGameS has prepared a pixel adventure game for you. After less than ideal navigation of messy swamps and barely escaping savage cannibals, you arrive at the crypt of the leech king to claim your prize! But before adventurer Konrad Meridian can even finish his string of bravado about his exploits, a metal gate slams shut trapping you, the player, inside. Take on the puzzles inside to look for the legendary treasure - and just maybe make an even more daring escape!
Hi! Another week is over and a new Weekday Escape is here! Three escape games for a break from responsibilities or just for fun. It´s time to dive into the world of cupboards with highly secured drawers and the world, where the most valuable commodity is a screwdriver. Go ahead!
Tototoroom´s Button Escape is an escape from a hotel suite, probably 5 or more stars hotel, considering a jacuzzi.
Appgoya´s Mystery Meeting Room Escape is an escape from a dull place, where you surely want to escape from.
The last game, Spiritual Escape´s Orbit Escape, is almost full size escape game. Definitely not 10 minutes, you need more time to get through this one!
Have a good time and enjoy!
How long you haven´t played proper escape game? Well, yes, there was a new Tesshi-e recently, but except for this one? It was the Christmas Tesshi-e, right? Not many big escapes these days, really. I´m not complaining, I´m just a little sad as a big escape games fan. Luckily, some designers still do them and KamotoKamotoKamo is one of them.
