I feel blessed to have uncovered the perfect salve for my worsening hangover, just as the right time. Splume, a beautiful little puzzle game that I found thanks to the perpetually high-quality bloggery over at IndyGamer, is just the right mixture of increasing challenge and neat design to soothe my poisoned body. It was designed for some game design competition and you have to install their web-browser plug in to play. I have it on reasonable authority that this is an okay thing to do.
So it's a kind of Tetris-Peggle physics 'n' matching game. Eyeballs watch, music plays, things drop and squish. You'll like it. There's even a level editor and a bunch of exquisite user-made levels. And there goes my afternoon/evening.
Should note, this is the work of Matthew Wegner who runs the excellent Fun Motion blog, dedicated to physics games. - John
