FACT: A Dark Room was one of last year’s most bemusing browser games. Initially, it seems like a survivalist-themed Cookie Clicker or Candy Box, a mouse-mauling series of numbers that rise toward the impossibility of infinity. Not so.
FACT: There are four hundred and six Match 3 games released every minute. They’re mostly released onto app stores rather than the wilds of the PC so you might not have seen all of them, but they’re out there. They’re mostly identical except for the manner of thing that must be matched – sometimes it’s gems, sometimes it’s fruits, very occasionally it is (probably) gonads.
FACT: Double Speak Games, developers of A Dark Room, have released a Match 3 game that is different to the rest. It’s called Gridland, it’s free and it will make your Thursday soar.
