DEATH WORM 2.0

By Alec Meer on July 28th, 2010.

We all loved DEATH WORM. DEATH WORM! It’s one of the first indie games we ever posted about on RPS, and mentioning its hallowed name remains the only known way to make Jim Rossignol use an exclamation mark.

Free browser game Worm Food is not DEATH WORM 2.0, nor is it officially related to DEATH WORM, but it is a lot like it. Probably too much like it, to be honest. Still: death worms.

Rise And Rise

By Jim Rossignol on January 25th, 2008.

Wired’s Clive Thompson has written an entertaining piece about the rise and rise of the Indie gaming scene, and what it means for “top game” lists:

Two years ago, I wrote my first column celebrating the best indie games: small, offbeat titles, programmed usually by a single auteur and given away for free. I figured I’d make it an annual affair. For 12 months, I’d scour the net for independent games that had a spark — some innovative bit of design or gameplay — and gather a list of the top 10. But I’ve decided it’s impossible.

He’s wrong of course, because Death Worm is best. Man, I love lists.

Lists Are Useful And Fun

By Jim Rossignol on August 11th, 2007.

Especially when they’re lists of the best fifty indie games out there, as compiled by TiGSource.

As ever I’m awed by the diversity of the stuff the PC indie scene generates, and I impressed myself with the number of games on that list I’ve actually played. It also reminded me to pick up a copy of Penumbra. I know, I know – your mum has played more games than me.

Actually, the best game on that list might just be Death Worm. (The Vista convert app is here.)

DEATH WORM!
