Gaming Gifs That Make Me Grin

It was time for a dive back into the TIG forum thread featuring gifs of games being worked on. Some are from games, some are feature ideas or tests or character animations. I like dipping in and seeing these tiny snapshots, either to take me to new games or simply to be lovely things in their own right.

Here are my current favourites:

The above game is Flip Flow

A charming mole from Riv Hester.

BEES! by Forstride

Lovely colour palette on this wilderness shooty gif from LobsterSteve’s GBJam game

I rather like the slantyness of this bullet hell project.

This is like having a snowglobe in the middle of a forum thread!

Lovely dice effects for digital role-playing system, TaleSpire.

And a gorgeous hand-animated character from LUNA – The Shadow Dust to finish.

    Loving the bounce of those dice, but the mole is very cool too… some other intriguing gifs in the post he made for that too.

    That shmup looks amazing! How has it taken this long for someone to come up with that effect?

    I’m perpetually delighted by the stuff that crops up on tigsource. Thanks for shining a light on more of it.

    Props for those being actually gifs instead of embedded webapp monstrosities. Also for the selection of course, but that goes without saying.
