Michael Brough Is Corrypting Us All

Michael “Brog’ Brough, the cleverbrain behind Glitch Tanks and Vertex Dispenser, has gone and made a free puzzle game for you and me, on Mac or PC. It’s called Corrypt, and it’s got one of those simple game mechanics that grows up through the levels to produce brain-curdling complexity as you go on. Nor is it simply about puzzling – there’s a map to explore, and creatures to encounter and help out with their woes. As is typical with Brog’s work, it is lo-fi and beautifully conceived.

And even there’s even Some Noise. (Which made me laugh out loud.) Go play it.

    I really liked this. I ended up trapping myself though. That plus the music (is it music? I can’t remember) began to drive me up the wall.

    Holy crap, this is really difficult. I got six mushrooms before I got stuck on a particular segment.

    Tip for when you inevitably get stuck: Backspace lets you go back in time.

    I like Glitch Tank, I’ll be sure to check this out

    It is pretty wonderful. I got through it thinking “I really don’t like sliding block puzzles much, but it’s by Smestorp so it’s bound to do something interesting eventually”, and it does.

    I ended up in a glorious mess on my first playthrough, and can feel I’m going to end up making a lot of screenshots, notes and maps.
