Games

Man I don't even know where to start with games. Ludum Dare 28 was last weekend so we had an influx of cool, small games this week. Game jams are a great opportunity to experiment, share and sometimes just get yourself out of a game dev rut.

I'll first make note of patrickgh3 because Spirit Cave is an interesting game that wasn't getting a lot of response on the front page, although the reviewers like it. Probably another case of the thumbnail not catching eyeballs as well as others on the page.

  • Spirit Cave

I'm out of time to keep listing stuff right now but hopefully you have time to check out some of what is here and follow your favorite artists and developers!

Ok need one more? Why not check out all the comics by ChazDude? He posts them on his blog, but if you follow him that will show up in your expanded feed.

I expect to post before Christmas but just in case, Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!


This is the game JohnnyUtah and I have been working on.

Way to go! Such honorable initiative must be rewarded with eternal subscription! :D

Just noticed btw that you can no longer un-favorite/follow a user/submission by toggling that hearty icon, you are instead redirected to your 'favorites' pages which for my part contains hundreds of entries and takes much longer to load, there with the task to again find said user/submission. Why this change? At least I don't think this was how it worked before? :/

I expect to post before Christmas but just in case, Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!

Merry Christmas!!!

Huh. I could have sworn I was already following him.....whatever. I'm following him now.

I loved those! They were even some of the first submissions I can honestly remember giving a 5 to for the longest time.

Whoa thanks for the shoutout, Tom!

I think ProfessorSoap has to be one of my favorite new artists here since Blown Minded came out back in August. It's also always great to see short films that do well in the festival circuit, like Breadheads, make their way to Newgrounds.
