  • Depict1 (Wednesday Game Battle)

    A lot of people have been asking what a “Game Battle” is. In short: A Game Battle is a kind of battle, with games. We are holding this “Battle Of Games” on a Wednesday instead of the traditional Friday this week, for some reason. To that end, here’s a neat little puzzle platformer called Depict1. This game is not your friend. Probably best not to listen to what it tells you. View Media ›

    Fantasy of the Sord

    Here’s a delightfully retro platformer to help you get through the rest of Monday. Explore the world with your knight-shaped blob and kill some bats while you’re at it. Pixelation and spelling errors come standard.

    Bango

    A puzzle game and a platformer all in one. Each time you step on a block, it disappears. But the only way to get to the next room is to get rid of all the blocks. The whole thing is kind of Sisyphean and depressing. Protip: Turn down the sound or puncture your ear drums with something sharp rather than listening to the in-game music. View Media ›
