Iconoclasts review

It's an odd experience to have followed the development of a game for almost a decade, only to have it blindside you.

The Iconoclasts Impressions

I first saw this over at the Indiegames Blog- The Iconoclasts is a remarkable, unfinished freeware platformer by indie dev Konjak. Not only is what's here beautiful and whip-smart, it's consistently funny and even touching.

Chalking It Up To Experience: Chalk

As previously mentioned, I'm going through my IGF judging now. Chalk Luxe was among its numbers, which made me go back and have a nose at the original 2007 Chalk game, which had passed me by.
