Every now and again I go to browse the ‘Gifs of games being worked on‘ thread in the TIGSource forums (The Independent Gaming Source community forum). I probably shouldn’t admit this but I’m not really there to scout out games. Sure, something cool might stand out and I’ll investigate further but the real pleasure is the pretty or interesting or characterful gifs. Perhaps I’ll find something broken but gorgeous or finished but puzzling. It’s about finding game actions which work as a repeating loop. I thought I’d gather some of my recent favourites here and share them with RPS readers. Please take this as an invitation to share back or pick your own favourites from what’s below.
I’ll try to include information where I can and a link back to the source in case you want to follow up the discussion or feedback.
