  • 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?

    … on Steam and can be purchased during that time for £1.04 thanks to an 85% discount. If you enjoy pool and your answer to the question in the headline is ‘no’, this is the perfect time to take a look. Since my review, the game has received plenty of updates and the latest version adds UK 8 ball rules, a walkaround camera, lots of fixes and a Box…

  • Freeware Garden: ESC Ape

    … three, themed worlds (Prison, Freezer and Hell?) is accompanied by jolly chiptunes and sneakily flanking enemies. And, to cut what would have been a pointlessly long story short, I openly admit that though I haven’t managed to play a FPS for more than an hour in over ten years, this one was too silly and simple for me to put down. I even finished the thing. …

  • The Tentacles Of Time: Kelvin And The Infamous Machine

    … How pleasing that a game about time travel should have such a perfect sense of timing. Kelvin and the Infamous Machine is a point and click adventure in which an inept research assistant must skip through time, inspiring great inventors and artists to fulfil their historical roles. It arrives on Kickstarter shortly after we cast our eyes over…

  • Recreating Crimescenes Virtually In Photobomb

    … Jam. As a Media Peace Officer, we roam around reconstructing a bombing scene using government tracking data and photos scraped from social media, trying to identify the bomber. And then we execute someone. It’s a fine game. Look, I’ve made a video explaining it: Or here are some written words repeating what I just said, for if you can’t watch video…

  • Section Nein: Ghost In The Shell Online

    … a bit like Blacklight with the addition of the license that the earlier free-to-play effort craved. There are some neat touches, particularly the use of the Laughing Man logo as a censor bar, but nothing about the video suggests GitS: SAC: FCO will stand out from the free-to-play shooter crowd. Except for the license, of course. And it’s…

  • Slot Together Wooden Insect Models In Zen Build

    … for as I’d grow mighty frustrated if I had to try every piece every way. That said, the experience would be more faithful if it let me put a part in the wrong slot the wrong way around then end up complaining that it’s broken because I can’t attach the antennae anywhere. Zen Build’s only got arthropods right now (‘insects’, it says, with its tarantula…

  • 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…
