Ride buses forever in 4Ever Transit Authority

If you fancy going somewhere new today, hop on the bus in 4Ever Transit Authority [Itch page] and ride endlessly through procedurally-generated cities. Brendan pointed out the version released after 4Ever was created during the recent Slow Game Jam, and now I’m here to tell you it’s properly finished after a little expansion and polish. The new version includes a map making the layout clear, auto-turn-around so you can let it run forever, updated music, and new buildings to see. Splendid. Read the rest of this entry »

Packing Up the Rest of Your Stuff on the Last Day at Your Old Apartment has a self-explanatory title

When we were compiling our thoughts on the best apartments in games, Alice was disappointed that Little Party wouldn’t make the cut. That’s not because its domestic space isn’t one of the best around, it’s because that space is quite clearly a house rather than an apartment. And what a house it is.

Little Party Is A Warm And Funny Pottering Mom ‘Em Up

I should’ve told you about Little Party [official site] when I first played it in March, but I couldn’t quite find the words. It’s a free potterer starring a mum whose daughter is visiting with her friends for an arty all-nighter, come to your cabin in the woods for inspiration, and it’s delightful. As the end-of-year plaudits approach and I’m thinking about games that’ve stuck in my head, well, it’s never too late to tell you about this.
