The beauty and drama of video games and their clouds

quote [ "The problem is they've almost got it right here, but they should curl down rather than up. Other than that, it's Fluctus." ]

Interesting if a bit dull observation on different game clouds

Warner Bros. leave developers feeling "sick and dizzy" as more Adult Swim games are being delisted

quote [ There are many other games that are at possible risk, however, including Desync, Kingsway, Mega Coin Squad, Obllitus, Pool Panic, Rick And Morty: Virtual Rick-ality, Rise & Shine, Super House Of Dead Ninjas, Super Puzzle Platformer, Traverser, and Zenzizenzic. ]

Moves like these hit hard in the midst of other crass cuts. They're delisting stuff that came in through other aquisitions. Thumb is Super Puzzle Platformer ?still a great game (which in this case luckily is also available on GOG)

Evolve Incremental

Mindless clicker game I read something about. Still clicking in it's early stages but maybe you're a more dilligent clicker than myself.

Kero Blaster

quote [ it's like mega man but instead of having a robot dog you work for minimum wage ]

Coming back to this game, it deserves more recognition. Apart from being funny, sensible, etc. it's very much a nicely crafted miniature experience.

Created by Daisuke "Pixel" Amaya of Cave Story fame this packs 9 languages, chiptune music (with PxTone) and a second, equally long campaign in very lean 8.5MB.

You probably need to like jump'n'run games ? it's very playable on many platforms including mobile. Link goes to wikipedia, quote is top Steam review.

Mystery Case Files

quote [ Following its release on November 18, 2005, Mystery Case Files: Huntsville broke all previous casual game sales records by over 100%, selling over $1 million worth of digitally distributed (downloaded) copies in under three months. As a result, it moved into the top 10 sales positions on all major casual game distribution websites. ]

The common hidden object game formula is rooted in a single, successful title from a Serbian outlet repeated ad infinitum. I actually don't mind, but the ones on are a little more diverse.
