Cyberpet Graveyard is Nathalie Lawhead’s latest digital concoction

At first I chose to completely ignore the cyberpet graveyard in Cyberpet Graveyard. I started walking down a country road instead, saying hi to the people I met along the way. One of them looked like this. ☜(˚∆˚)☞ In Nathalie Lawhead's words, Cyberpet Graveyard is "a collection of strange, goofy, software that you discover by rummaging around in folders". She's calling it a "little treat-myself-project"…

Everything is going to be OK expands, feels less OK

Everything is going to be OK, the interactive zine/digital fever-dream from Tetrageddon creator Nathalie Lawhead always felt deeply personal to me. Its manic humour and wild imagination filtered through computer interfaces of yesteryear always felt underpinned by a very specific breed of frustration and sadness. Today, it grew just a little bit more, adding three new 'pages' set within hazy, unreal PC desktops packed dense…

Everything Is Going To Be OK gets early access PWYW

Experimental project Everything Is Going To Be Okay [Gamejolt link] is having an early access-ish period to help developer Nathalie Lawhead (who you may know from her 2015 IGF award-winning project, Tetrageddon Games) finish it off. I hesitate to use the word game because that doesn't really encapsulate anything about the project - instead let's go with Lawhead's own description: "Interactive zine".

Free Loaders: Help There’s Frogs In My Computer

I didn’t mean for it to get this bad. They’re just harmless frogs, right? How was I supposed to know they would take over my life like this. I’m warning you, reader. Stay away from the frogs. Do not let them take you. Do not lose your freedom, like I did. Do not become a servant to their digital whims. No, don’t click to find…

The Indie Devs You Won’t Hear About At E3

Why do those big knuckleheads get all the attention? We all know about the yearly blockbusters of Ubisoft. And we can all see the behemoth that is EA. Yes, yes, they've got a new FIFA, that's great. But look away from these giants for a moment and you can clearly see the eco-system of game development harbouring thousands of other organisms. In the spirit of…

Oddball IGF Winner Tetrageddon Games Released

ARMAGAD (also Tetrageddon Games) [official site], an updated collection of IGF Nuovo Award-winning oddities from Nathalie Lawhead, is now out. It contains games such as Froggy, sure, but Tetrageddon is... so much bigger and weirder. Loading Tetrageddon launches you into a fake desktop, an interface filled with hidden games, desktop companions, animations, chatbots, flirtbots, and... stuff. After a fair bit of fiddling and playing, I…

Virtual Desktop Spudbud: Electric Love Potato

Electric Love Potato is not a game. However, nor are Windows or Twitch and we post about those. Creator Natalie Lawhead (of Froggy and the IGF-winning Tetrageddon Games) calls the free virtual desktop assistant "a game enhancer", explaining that "Like the Oculus Rift, Mouse, or Keyboard, Electric Love Potato will take your game, browsing, or workday, and take it to a new, positively reinforced, level...…

The Bestest Best Main Menu of 2015: Monkey Fortunetell

What will 2015 bring you? Love, perhaps? Long-lost inspiration? Terrible power? Terrible wealth? Great loss? Great joy? A much-needed change? Monkey Fortunetell can read your future from how you shake and cast a barrel full of monkeys, but its main menu makes one thing clear: no matter what else, 2015 will be a year for boogying hard. It's a free little treat from Froggy creator…

Superhop Superhop Superhop Superhop: Froggy

It seems grossly unprofessional to open a post with a huge chunk of a game's marketing fluff but: FROGGY is the legendary froggame that forever changed frogtelling in the frogindustry with its groundbreaking narrative. Many critics have heralded it as the Citizen Kane of frogs. FROGGY's most notable achievement was the accurate representation of frogs, for which it won many frogminations in froggytainment, and PC…
