Jack King-Spooner wishes us a weird and frostbitten Christmas

Technically this was released last Christmas but it feels every bit as fresh and relevant now as it did then. Media-collage-abusing developer Jack King-Spooner (creator of Dujanah) wishes to share with us the tale of three shepherds on a long winter's night, awoken to share stories gifted to them by the heavens above. And it all begins with the most grungy, urban retelling of The…

Hupsi is a musical children’s picture-book for the digital generation

Whether you're an old and creaky adult or a precocious tyke that has somehow found themselves on this dark and scurrilous corner of the internet (Run while you still can! Crawl if you can't!), you should give Hupsi - an interactive musical storybook from 5pm Kids - a look as your free browser pick of the day. It'll put a smile on your face, I…

Type stuff and see what happens in Constellation

Forget 'God Games', because Super Hexagon creator Terry Cavanagh has come up with something that that shows you what it's really like to be a deity. Constellation is a free game with a five word premise: type stuff, see what happens. You can run it in your browser, and while it's designed to be played at events I've been having fun poking at it on…

Just build Sandcastles in Vectorpark’s latest

It's grim to have sunset fall while I'm still working, so I sacked off the afternoon to cheer myself building virtual sandcastles. I build sandcastles up out the sand, I admire my little castle village, then the tide comes in and washes them all away, and I start over. That's how it goes in Sandcastles, the latest from Windosill and Metamorphabet creator Vectorpark. It's a…

Fancy driving a tram through picturesque mountain villages populated by cats? Course you do! What you want is Short Trip [official site], a new free browser-based game from Alexander Perrin. It's a delightful hand-drawn tram simulator rolling through hamlets and forests, over streams and up hills, taking in the sights and sounds. Just the ticket on a Monday!

The Evolution of Trust is a cute explain-o-game about cooperation

Here's something nice, but also depressing. I started playing The Evolution of Trust¬†[official site], a short browser-based game, expecting it to show me why trusting other people is a good thing. Ten minutes in, it's taught me that I need to cheat more. It has you playing a quick 'Game of Trust'. If you stick a coin into a machine, the person at the other…

It Is As If You Were Doing Work really is

I should've posted about an hour ago but, to be honest, I was too distracted by It Is As If You Were Doing Work [official site] to do actual work. Pippin Barr's free browser-based game offers a virtual desktop with all the thrills, chills, and Windows alert trills of actual work - but purely for funsies! Mash your keyboard to fill out nonsense e-mails, click…

Quick, Draw! And have a neural net guess what it is

I've lost entire afternoon's to GeoGuessr, hitting the button again and again to teleport to a random place in the world in Google Streetview and then try to work out where I am from the scenery. Now I've spent a similarly long afternoon making Google do the guessing. Quick, Draw![ official site] is a sort-of game, sort-of web tool in which you doodle images upon…

Cookie Clicker: A Pip And Alice Chat

Cookie Clicker is a game about clicking cookies. A recent update (the first since 2014) tempted Alice and Pip back into the (dough) fold. They've uncovered horrors beyond all imagining, not least Pip's competitive cookie streak. I have been playing Cookie Clicker [official site] for a few days now. I thought I was doing well. My "legacy meter" which I don't understand is ticking up…

Consume! Produce! Click! Cookie Clicker Version 2 Out

Have you figured out how you'll procrastinate at work today? Stop. I'll tell you: you'll be clicking on cookies in the new version of Cookie Clicker [official site]. I still fondly remember when the feeling of "What is this and why do I keep clicking seriously what's wrong with me?" began shifting to "Oh no, what... what's happening? Why are they so... fleshy?" as a…

Corpseburg Is Zombie Survival On A Google Map

I live in Bath, England, a Georgian city with an abundance of coffee shops and places to buy hummus, but a real lack of hardware stores. This is a problem when I need to buy nails, but also when playing Corpseburg. It's a free browser game in which you attempt to survive a zombie apocalypse, the trick being that it's played upon a Google Map.…

Skipping Stones To Lonely Homes Is Smarter Than Us

Skipping Stones to Lonely Homes is a new game from indie designer Alan Hazelden. It's a puzzlescript puzzler, developed by Hazelden in the open-source engine, and it tells the story of a sailor - that's you - whose ship is damaged and must be repaired using items found on nearby islands. It also ranks in the top five games that use lilypads as a comprehensive…

Say It Fast 3 Times: Touch Pianist Is A Fun Browser Toy

I own three keyboards: one for typing, two for playing music on. The one for typing is the only one I know how to use though, so I'm pleased with Touch Pianist. It's a website in which you press any key in order to advance a piece of classical music one note at a time. It's unlike Guitar Hero in that, if you stop typing,…

Co-Op Point And Click: Cursors

I eventually stopped playing Cursors some fifteen screens in when, as shown in the image above, I found myself trapped in a small cubbyhole in the top left of the screen. It's a co-operative browser game where you trace your mouse cursor around mazes, but where advancing through each screen doesn't merely mean working together. It means some people getting left behind.

They Only Come Out At Night: Gridland

FACT: A Dark Room was one of last year's most bemusing browser games. Initially, it seems like a survivalist-themed Cookie Clicker or Candy Box, a mouse-mauling series of numbers that rise toward the impossibility of infinity. Not so. FACT: There are four hundred and six Match 3 games released every minute. They're mostly released onto app stores rather than the wilds of the PC so…

Freeware Garden: Nekra Psaria

Nekra Psaria means "dead fish" in Greek, which, frankly and regardless of language doesn't conjure up the best of images. Not that fish or death can ever be avoided, mind you, but escape-the-room browser games used to come with way cuter names back when the internet was young.
