Good, as that's all you'll need to enjoy HELP HURT HOPP, a creative little free multiplayer game from prolific indie dev Daniel 'Managore' Linssen. Just make sure they're the kind of friends that won't punch you. Or ones you won't be tempted to punch - this is a game of rapidly escalating dickishness, as…

Ace one-line platformer Wibble Wobble gets multiplayer

Wibble Wobble, the splendid high score-chasing endless platformer set on a single undulating line, now has a local multiplayer version. Wibble Wobble was great in singleplayer and it's great in multiplayer now. The multiplayer version has drifted around events for a bit, including several Wild Rumpuses I helped run/didn't wholly ruin, but now it's out pay-what-you-want on Itch for all. Grab some chums and prepare…

Free Loaders: I Want To Ride On My Bicycle

I’d like to ride on my biiiike! Oh, hello, you caught me singing Queen’s greatest hit, “Bicycle Riding”. You should check it out, it is the sound of this Halloween. I’m singing it because this game I found puts you on a bike and pits you against ferocious cyclists who can only be defeated if you kick them into the road barrier. It’s not cheating.…

Not Man’s Sky: A Quartet Of Procedural Planety Things

Look, I know what we said about No Man's Sky and hype and all that, but this isn't about that. Stop pointing hissing "Hypocriiite" at me and howling like Donald Sutherland at the end of Invasion of the Body Snatchers. Give over. I'm trying to show you nice things. Sheesh. Today I bring you a quartet of things showing pleasing procedurally-generated spacebits, two directly inspired…

Ghost Of A Chance: Beetling About In Garden

Today is all about insects and gardens, it seems. First I revisited Morphopolis, now I'm onto a game by Daniel Linssen, Tak and Martin Kvale which is actually called Garden [official site]. In my role as a ghost I must dash hither and yon through the overgrown paths, popping large flower buds and reactivating fountains. BUT WAIT! There is also peril! Peril in the form…

Sandstorm: A Game About How CERTAIN Camels Don’t Deserve To Have Parties

Downloaded pretty much entirely to see if it was a reference to Darude and then played entirely to try and one-up Alice, I have spent the best part of an hour on Sandstorm [official site]. The aim is to trek eastwards through a sandstorm to reach a mountain. A simple pilgrimage, then, powered by a cart and a camel. Except your orientation keeps shifting, your…

Trinkets And Camels: Lost In The Desert With Sandstorm

I have not completed Sandstorm [official site] yet. I don't think I've completed its first level. I don't even know if it has levels. The game sends players on a pilgrimage through a seemingly endless sandstorm with a cart of supplies and a camel that keeps wandering off, leaving us lost as the world swirls around us. I've enjoyed the confusion. It's out now for…

Platforming Inside The Walls: The Sun And Moon

The Sun and Moon is the latest game to go from Ludum Dare entry to fully released title. It was the overall winner of the 29th iteration of the 48 hour game jam, developer Daniel Linssen impressing with his platforming interpretation of the theme "beneath the surface." In it you control a ball of light with the ability to phase through walls, reversing gravity while…
