Feature: The machinery that runs the world

Priceless Play – 23 April

Ah, infrastructure -- that boring, beautiful thing. Infrastructure is what makes the world go. It is all the things we prefer to ignore when everything is going right - everything from roads to electric wiring to massive water filtration systems. As soon as there's a hiccup, however, that's when infrastructure reveals itself to be the all-encompassing lifeblood of the universe. And sometimes it seems games…

Catching Up With Eyezmaze: Grow Clay

I used to love the Grow games, that series of hyper-cute, hyper-inventive free puzzlers/animation treats from Japanese dev On, aka Eyezmaze. Then I grew up and decided I hated them. Put away childish things and all that. Nah, 'course not, I've just been busy trying to grow another lifeform. I was both saddened and relieved to discover that On hasn't exactly been prolific while I…

This ongoing collection of flash games is a funny series to post about, as it's so resolutely unchanging. What else can I say beyond "the animations are wonderful and unpredictable?"

If you're an old hand at these things, you might be a mite disappointed that the chap's still clinging to the same concept after so many games. Surely time…

MEET IN

A new webgame from On, creator of the impossibly cute Grow series, always improves my mood. As my mood is about to be battered by lurking on a train for far too many hours, MEET IN made for an especially fine morning treat. Unfortunately, it's another short one, but fortunately it's a neat new idea rather than yet another click-in-the-right-order Grow opus. It's superficially a…

Eight-Step Plan

I the Grow games. I really, really them , even though I'm the kind of guy who'd rather gouge his eyes out with his Big Daddy figurine than ever see, say, a Hello Kitty image again. These, though, are genuine, not contrived, Japanese cute. If you're unfamiliar with the concept, they're Flash puzzle games based around increasing visual reward. You select which one of a…
