Free, Friendly, Fabulous: Scarygirl

Browser-based, hook-handed platformer Scarygirl has been released (and is currently being crushed by the weight of internet traffic). It turns out to be a highly accomplished, preposterously beautiful little game: it’s a kind of perfect collision between the best children’s books and cream of 16-bit era platform puzzlers. The puzzles are splendidly intricate, it’s full of weird little details and flourishes, and the artwork – by master illustrator Nathan Jurevicius – is simply magnificently colourful and charming throughout. Clearly you must stop reading my blather and go play it without further ado.

Via the awesome Indiegames blog, who reckon it will be free to play too. Blimey.
