RPS reader Ben Esposito writes to say “I’m a stupid intern at Dejobaan Games (AaaaaAAaaaAAAaaAAAAaAAAAA!!!) and after seeing what it’s like to make games with no money and no air conditioning, I decided to start doing it myself.”
Mr. Esposito’s new game, Nudo, has just been released (for free!) and provides about an hour of addictive, rewarding puzzling. Ben describes it as “a platformer on top of a rubik’s cube”, but as a professional games journalist I must categorise it as “game where you kind of move the level as well as the little man but with certain limitations.” To borrow a phrase from Kieron, it’s one of those games that’s much easier to grasp with a video rather than an explanation, so I’ve wedged a video after the jump.
Incidentally, I don’t know if Ben Esposito is in a relationship but I suspect he’d make a wonderful lover. Anybody who feels like fostering a crush can read his poetry here, and browsing his site reveals all kinds of other projects. He’s so creative! Mm. Anyway, Nudo. You can play Nudo here.
