Weekend Download N°261
This edition of Weekend Download is out to mess with you. A serious art game. A game about clubbing baby seals. A game that might as well be made by a troll. Go ahead, download and play. Seriously. Go for it.
Olson's Journey (Windows, free) - Olson's Journey is a tiny adventure game with three scenes and a single puzzle. Solve the puzzle, then see what happens. The game is so short you'll think you've been trolled. Then you'll realize there's Olson's Journey 2 and Olson's Journey 3, which makes the brevity a bit easier to swallow. The cardboard and paper set pieces also make it worth checking out!
Fictions (Windows, pre-alpha) - A short pre-alpha build designed to showcase the in-dev project titled Somewhere, Fictions is a surreal first person exploration game that makes about as much sense as eating soup with chopsticks. The basic goal is to sneak up on people and possess them, allowing you to experience the game's world as a new character, seeing things through their eyes. It's very bit as much a piece of interactive art as a game.
Inuit (Windows/Mac, free) - Oh boy, call the political correctness police. Inuit is an arcade game that's all about clubbing seals. You can't actually kill them with your club, just, you know, knock them into things that will kill them. See how many seals you can vanquish in each level and how fast you can do it. Low-res pixel graphics make everything less controversial!
