Have You Played… Crayon Physics Deluxe?

Have You Played? is an endless stream of game retrospectives. One a day, every day of the year, perhaps for all time. Look, it’s called Crayon Physics [official site]. You could probably invent the game in your mind knowing just that. Now take some crayons and revert to your childhood self. Not too much! Oh, well, you’ve done it now. There’s no way you’ll handle…

Juiced And Spruced: Making Better Games

Indiegames notice that Crayon Physics Deluxe developer Petri Purho and Martin Jonasson, creator of Jesus vs Dinosaurs, talked about tweening and juiciness at the Nordic Game Indie Night 2012. What's your favourite sort of juice? Orange or mango maybe? Or more likely it's jaunty music, uncannily large eyes that blink on impact with projectiles, and a little bit of delay and wobble. Confused? All is…

Humble Grumbles / Bundle Of Joy

Good news and less good news from the Humble Bundle camp today. The happier end of the bargain is that purchasers of the current Humble Bundle 4 now get the base contents of Humble Bundle 3 (i.e. VVVVVV, Crayon Physics Deluxe, Cogs, And Yet It Moves, and Hammerfight) added to their pack. That's if they've bought HB4 already. If they haven't, they'll have to beat…

None More Bundley: Humble Bundle 3 Is Go

First there was a Humble Indie Bundle. Then there was another Humble Indie Bundle. And now, there is a third Humble Indie Bundle! So it goes. Yes, the pay-what-you-want pack that has brought welcome funds to indie devs and philanthropic organisations alike (not to mention giving gamers a fat pack of splendid indie games for bargain prices) has returned for a new Summer of fun.…

Crayon Physics: Pay What You Bloody Want

Goo did it. Radiohead did it. Even educated independent PC videogames do it. This time, it's Petri Purho's Crayon Physics deluxe - yours for however much you care to pay for it. 10p or 10 pentasquilliongillion Venusian sex-dollars, whatever you feel it deserves/are comfortable with. It's a strategy that worked out pretty well for 2D Boy when they did the same thing with World of…

Crayon Physics Demo

Last week I talked a bit about the excellent Crayon Physics Deluxe, and if that interested you in the slightest then you should probably take a look at the demo, which Kloonigames have posted up over the weekend. A splendid illustrative slice of the game, it gives a much better idea of where the concept is now, rather than the tech demo released ages back.…

Wot I Think: Crayon Physics Deluxe

The winner of last year's $20,000 Seumas McNally Grand Prize at the Independent Games Festival was Crayon Physics Deluxe. Finally, on January 7th 2009, we are able to buy the finished game. Has that extra year and financial aid helped the hand-drawn physics puzzler maximise its potential? Or did Petri Purho end up eating all the crayons and sitting in the corner? Having played that…

Do Some Draws – Crayon Physics Beta Demo

The cuddly joyful happy place that is Crayon Physics Deluxe now has its beta demo available for anyone who's pre-ordered. Which you really should have. You can do so here. This early behind-closed-doors demo from Kloonigames' Petri Purho contains the first 18 levels of the game, along with access to a limited version of the level creation tools, letting you set your own challenges. It's…

IGF Winners Announced

The results are in, with the winners announced for the 2008 IGF Awards. The standard of entries this year was just stunning, and when we've tried to pick out our favourite of the top prize entries, it's been impossible. For us it came down to three. Audiosurf has taken over our lunchtimes (and mornings and afternoons and evenings) this week, and is obviously a triumphant…

Crayon Physics Deluxe

Crayons. Crayons, crayons, crayons. Crayons! In conclusion, crayons are great. Also great is Crayon Physics Deluxe, which kindly Old Man Eurogamer let me spend an afternoon playing this week. You can read it by following this passage of tantalising text: There's something sublimely magical about drawing something and having it come to life. It's like being Penny Crayon without the squawking horror of Su Pollard…
