Juiced And Spruced: Making Better Games

By Adam Smith on May 28th, 2012.

Indiegames notice that Crayon Physics Deluxe developer Petri Purho and Martin Jonasson, creator of Jesus vs Dinosaurs, talked about tweening and juiciness at the Nordic Game Indie Night 2012. What’s your favourite sort of juice? Orange or mango maybe? Or more likely it’s jaunty music, uncannily large eyes that blink on impact with projectiles, and a little bit of delay and wobble. Confused? All is explained in the fifteen minute video. Purho and Jonasson have built a simple Breakout clone to which they can add layers of ‘juice’ and you can play with the program yourself.

Humble Grumbles / Bundle Of Joy

By Alec Meer on December 21st, 2011.

Reusing this picture means I don't have to type in all the names of the HB4 games again. I SO CLEVER.

Good news and less good news from the Humble Bundle camp today. The happier end of the bargain is that purchasers of the current Humble Bundle 4 now get the base contents of Humble Bundle 3 (i.e. VVVVVV, Crayon Physics Deluxe, Cogs, And Yet It Moves, and Hammerfight) added to their pack. That’s if they’ve bought HB4 already. If they haven’t, they’ll have to beat the average price to get the bonus goodies. The average price is currently $5.17 million.

None More Bundley: Humble Bundle 3 Is Go

By Alec Meer on July 26th, 2011.

Yes, you worked it out from the pictures. You're incredibly clever. Can I marry you?

First there was a Humble Indie Bundle. Then there was another Humble Indie Bundle. And now, there is a third Humble Indie Bundle! So it goes.

Yes, the pay-what-you-want pack that has brought welcome funds to indie devs and philanthropic organisations alike (not to mention giving gamers a fat pack of splendid indie games for bargain prices) has returned for a new Summer of fun. But which splendid indie games are in it, exactly? I’m glad you asked.

You know what to do…

Crayon Physics: Pay What You Bloody Want

By Alec Meer on January 8th, 2010.

Goo did it. Radiohead did it. Even educated independent PC videogames do it. This time, it’s Petri Purho’s Crayon Physics deluxe – yours for however much you care to pay for it. 10p or 10 pentasquilliongillion Venusian sex-dollars, whatever you feel it deserves/are comfortable with. It’s a strategy that worked out pretty well for 2D Boy when they did the same thing with World of Goo last year, despite the vast majority of folk offering insultingly but inevitably low tithes. Be interesting to see if it plays out as profitably for Sir Purho; while his game certainly isn’t the out and out triumph that Goo was, it’s a fun and inventive science’n’creation puzzler that’s certainly worth a punt in this mega-deal. Which lasts only until January 15th, so hurry.

In other Super Indie Game Deal news, if you preorder both Natural Selection 2 and Overgrowth at once, you get ‘em both for pretty much the price of one. More on that in tomorrow’s Bargain Bucket, and videos of all three games I’ve whiffled about here are below the cut.

Crayon Physics Demo

By Jim Rossignol on January 12th, 2009.


Last week I talked a bit about the excellent Crayon Physics Deluxe, and if that interested you in the slightest then you should probably take a look at the demo, which Kloonigames have posted up over the weekend. A splendid illustrative slice of the game, it gives a much better idea of where the concept is now, rather than the tech demo released ages back. Have a play, you might like it.

Wot I Think: Crayon Physics Deluxe

By Jim Rossignol on January 6th, 2009.


The winner of last year’s $20,000 Seumas McNally Grand Prize at the Independent Games Festival was Crayon Physics Deluxe. Finally, on January 7th 2009, we are able to buy the finished game. Has that extra year and financial aid helped the hand-drawn physics puzzler maximise its potential? Or did Petri Purho end up eating all the crayons and sitting in the corner? Having played that finished version, here’s Wot I Think.

Do Some Draws – Crayon Physics Beta Demo

By John Walker on December 23rd, 2008.

I made this!

The cuddly joyful happy place that is Crayon Physics Deluxe now has its beta demo available for anyone who’s pre-ordered. Which you really should have. You can do so here. This early behind-closed-doors demo from Kloonigames’ Petri Purho contains the first 18 levels of the game, along with access to a limited version of the level creation tools, letting you set your own challenges. It’s the first chance for people to get their hands on the Deluxe version of things, and see quite how many leaps and bounds forward this is since the original Crayon Physics.

Crayon Physics Deluxe Pre-Order – At Last!

By John Walker on November 11th, 2008.

Let's play on the seesaw!

I first played Crayon Physics Deluxe just under a year ago, when sniffing around the IGF entries, and adored it. Then the waiting began. Finally, nearly a year later, Petri Purho’s Seumas McNally Grand Prize winning creation is available for pre-order.

IGF Winners Announced

By John Walker on February 21st, 2008.

The results are in, with the winners announced for the 2008 IGF Awards.

Stolen banners are our stock in trade.

The standard of entries this year was just stunning, and when we’ve tried to pick out our favourite of the top prize entries, it’s been impossible. For us it came down to three. Audiosurf has taken over our lunchtimes (and mornings and afternoons and evenings) this week, and is obviously a triumphant achievement. Crayon Physics Deluxe is so charming and serene, while letting you feel like a wizard as your drawings come to life. And World of Goo evoked memories in us of the first time we played Lemmings (a high compliment indeed). Winners lie beyond.

Crayon Physics Deluxe

By John Walker on January 18th, 2008.

Crayons. Crayons, crayons, crayons. Crayons!

In conclusion, crayons are great.

By John Walker, aged 30.

Also great is Crayon Physics Deluxe, which kindly Old Man Eurogamer let me spend an afternoon playing this week. You can read it by following this passage of tantalising text:

There’s something sublimely magical about drawing something and having it come to life. It’s like being Penny Crayon without the squawking horror of Su Pollard providing your voice. Combined with the childhood pleasure of the thick, comforting lines of a crayon, you’ve got a puzzle game that hurts your brain while making you feel warm and safe at the same time.

And play the free previous version here.
