Weekend Download №238
It's easy to tell what's on our mind this weekend: sleep, abstract experiences, and butler. The former because sleep is good. The middle one because rhubarb pie. The latter because Mr. Belvedere was a fantastic television show.
Schutll Noise (Windows/Linux, free) - A platform game where we really don't want to tell you how to play, as that kinda ruins some of the fun. Schutll Noise works with minimalism in a very challenging sort of way, dropping you in a world where you can walk and double jump and very little else. Colored materials affect you differently, such as red floors killing you and brown stopping you. Make it to the green goal by any means necessary. Be prepared to think way out of the box!
Dungeon Butler (Windows/Mac, free) - A turn-based puzzle game of sorts created for the Pack of Horrors game jam by The Bovine Perspectives. Moving from section to section in your master's spacious manor, interact with objects and pick up items necessary to clean the place up (you're a butler, after all). Pesky humans threaten to wake master from his slumber, though, so you also have to manipulate objects to keep them at bay. It's a short but unique game that doesn't take itself too seriously. Which is good, since the set-up somehow reminds us of Manos: The Hands of Fate. Note: Scroll to the third banner image on the following page to download Mac and Windows versions.
Zzzz-Zzzz-Zzzz (Windows, free) - Finally, a game about sleeping! Actually, it's more about the dreams we have when we're asleep. Ever dreamt you had a superpower but didn't know how to use it? Zzzz-Zzzz-Zzzz lets you live that experience and many more surreal moments as you work your way through level after level of puzzle platforming oddities. Here's some protips to help you get started: walk and jump. When you get stuck, try pressing Z. When you get really stuck, try other things. Like going back to bed or something.
