    • Happy Kitty, Cat Petting Simulator 2014, Purr Purr Purr

      By Cassandra Khaw on November 9th, 2014 at 5:00 pm. I miss having cats. Four years ago, I left home and became a professional itinerant, leaving my felines in the care of rich strangers. Today, I am bereft of cats and so, you shouldn’t take me as an unbiased source when I say, “Oh, god. Cat Petting Simulator 2014 is the best thing I’ve seen in a long time.

    • Mournful Meandering: Press E To

      By Alice O'Connor on November 11th, 2014 at 9:00 am. If you’re jacked into the ludosphere, you’ll probably have seen folks tittering about a funeral scene in Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare with the button prompt “Press F to Pay Respects”. Yes, it’s an absurd prompt from a daft story with the emotional depth of a bedpan, but is the idea entirely unworkable? Starting with a si ...

  • 2D Survival Shenanigans: MiniDayZ

    … for free. It might not prepare you for a couple furious that the paint-mixer’s out of a particular pigment, but a top-down 2D take on Bohemia’s zombie apocalypse survival sim comes close to the experience. MiniDayZ has all that DayZ survival jazz – zombies, a big world, looting, weapons, stats like blood, body heat, and hunger to balance, crafting…

  • Sunday Morning Cartoons: S For Surfing

    … never discover the value of boredom. Just look at S for Surfing – a free first-person platform about riding cubic waves high into the sky, bouncing off dolphins and balloons and pullin sikk tricks. I am thoroughly awful at playing it (with my old, aching hands), so here’s a video from the makers: Sikk tricks indeed. It was made for 7 Day FPS…

  • Saturday Afternoon Reading: The IFComp Winners

    … By Alice O'Connor on November 22nd, 2014 at 5:00 pm. Right, five o’clock. Early Saturday afternoon. You’ve watched your cartoons, you’ve had your walk – haven’t you? – and a nice big lunch, so it’s time to settle down for a spot of reading. I say this as someone you trust to guide your personal development, of course. You’ll draw today’s…

  • Musical Wandering: Porapora

    …, then a seven-course lunch once we’re all back. Don’t pout. Oh, at the very least, do go for a virtual walk. It’ll still enrich you, and might help you shake your grumps off if you’re playing the delightful Porapora. Porapora is a free walking simulator created for 7 Day FPS by Flex Roman and Héloïse Lozano. We wander around a colourful forest, leaves…

  • Have You Played… Pool Nation?

    … By Adam Smith on November 21st, 2014 at 3:30 pm. Have You Played? is an endless stream of game recommendations. One a day, every day of the year, perhaps for all time. Pool Nation is my favourite felt-top ball-bothering game since I spent a summer with Jimmy White’s Whirlwind Snooker back in my Amiga days. This weekend, it’s free to play…

  • Freeware Garden: ESC Ape

    … By Konstantinos Dimopoulos on November 21st, 2014 at 11:00 am. You’d think that creating a retro FPS in the vein of Wolfenstein seems like a simple thing to pull off, what with the power of today’s tools and all the game design experience of the past 20 years. Yet ESC Ape is one of the select few first-person shooters of this type worthy…

  • Recreating Crimescenes Virtually In Photobomb

    … By Alice O'Connor on November 20th, 2014 at 8:00 pm. You only have one shot in Photobomb, but you might not have had enough time to identify which suspect is guilty before firing it. Justice is swift and crowd-pleasing in the dystopian future. Photobomb’s a free game created by Milkbag Games for both 7 Day FPS and the Procedural Generation Jam…

  • Section Nein: Ghost In The Shell Online

    … By Adam Smith on November 20th, 2014 at 2:00 pm. The trailer for (deep breath) Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex: First Connection Online gave me that Syndicate feeling. Not the same Syndicate feeling that Satellite Reign gives me, alas, but rather the troubling memories of the 2012 FPS-capade. All of the details seem to match. A beloved…

  • Slot Together Wooden Insect Models In Zen Build

    … downplayed that later issues cost far more than I could ever afford, leaving my childhood shelves covered in jigsaw-cut wooden mantis limbs, T. rex skulls, stag beetle carapaces, and Eiffel Tower crowns. Twenty years later, I might finally complete one, thanks to Zen Build. It’s a free puzzler about assembling wooden models, and I cannot finish…

  • Freeware Garden: Jet/Lag

    … By Konstantinos Dimopoulos on November 20th, 2014 at 11:00 am. Procedural dungeons weren’t created solely for the RPG-style hacking and slashing of monsters and that’s why Jet/Lag is being labeled a hyper minimal rogue-like-like-like. It might take place in some of the noisiest, most randomly generated dungeons possible, but there’s nothing…
