Bellular Hexatosis: Porp & Neotenomie’s Strange Sights

Offer me the chance to step inside one of Porpentine's worlds and I'd laugh, cry, shed my skin, then run screaming into the woods. I can't say I'm not curious about her alien landscapes, cruel societies, lost people, and strange loves, though. Good news! New technological advancements mean you can now virtually peek inside 3D recreations and experience emotions in a controlled environment before safely…

Hell Labyrinth: Crypt Underworld Kickstarting

Crypt Underworld [official site] is a sequel to Crypt Worlds, a free game described as a "reflecting pool of the futility we all experience". You can download that right now for a taste of the trashy deconstruction, which plays out like a nightmarish first-person RPG in which nothing really matters until your actions bring the world to an abrupt halt. The sequel is already in…

That's a bit weird, given how funny and interesting and unsettling and probing our former Live Free Play Hard columnist's games are. Well, now I can cover most at once. Porpentine…

A Chiming Desktop Chum: Music Friend

Music Friend (Fallen Sprite) [official page] is pretty much what its name suggests: a musical little friend. Made by Brenda Neotenomie (her behind the soundtrack to Porpentine's With Those We Love Alive), it's a free musical diorama of a sprite (from Lily Zone's Crypt Underworld) gently rocking out to soothing music on a rotating planetoid. I've enjoyed having it open in the background playing music,…

Physically Interactive Fiction: With Those We Love Alive

One of these symbols I drew on my arm is a lie. With Those We Love Alive tells you to draw icons on your body to represent key choices and reactions, see, which is a lark until you realise you're marking and changing yourself in response to cruel and oppressive things. One icon represents something I like to think about myself, but know isn't true.…
