Hey. Sarah here. Figured since so many other people I like joined this, I guess I should as well. We'll see how much I actually use it. You can also find me on Twitter and Tumblr. My username is the same there. #introductions
Oh, I guess I should mention a few things about myself. Okay, um, I'm queer. I kinda dabble with various art things, mainly writing. I have way too many interests, but I'm mainly into video games and comics.
Bulby - Diamond Course is a charming tribute to Kirby's Dream Course. The gameplay is almost directly lifted from that underappreciated classic. Not as polished as the original, but fun, and almost the only other place you'll find a game quite like it.
The Dream Machine is incredible point & click adventure with visuals made by hand with cardboard and clay (and other stuff). The graphics are really great and unique, but the story is also very engaging. Fantastic.
The sequel goes in a different direction. In Toki Tori 2 you're just given two abilities (whistle and stomp), and no special tools, to explore a large, open world filled with danger. Also Cheap (Cheep!)!
Toki Tori is a cute and clever puzzle-platformer. You're given an interesting variety of limited tools to explore levels in search of eggs. A friendly game, cheap (Cheep!)!
DARQ is a spooky and surreal adventure through nightmares. Despite the gravity shifting, this game has more in common with Point & Clicks than platformers. Lots of exploration and finding the right items to use in creative puzzles.
Reventure is quirky, funny, meta, inventive, and fun. A platformer/action/adventure game that doesn't take itself seriously, it has 100 different endings to discover (with most of them involving your hilarious demise).
Ageless is an incredible and difficult puzzle-platformer like nothing else. The aging mechanic is so unique and creative. A little awkward at times, and the visuals could be better, but it's still amazing.
Swim Out is a neat, unique, themed, turn-based puzzle game. Features a chill atmosphere, but challenging strategic puzzles.
Also, keep an eye on JellyCar Worlds, the upcoming game from walaber. A delightful 2D car platformer with squishy, bouncy physics, and plenty of charm and silliness. A reboot of classic games sadly no longer available. There's a demo!
Pro Gymnast Simulator, from walaber, is an incredible, challenging, physics acrobatics sim. Control your whole body to pull off stunning feats. Sorta like QWOP in the air, but surprisingly serious. Just amazing. And hard.
Yono and the Celestial Elephants is an enchanting and friendly adventure game. Somewhat Zelda-esque, but simple and easy, it has delightful visuals and surprisingly good writing.
Splasher is a fun, fast-paced platformer about fluids. Run, jump, bounce, and wall-run through levels while spraying the walls and enemies with different substances.
Lost Words: Beyond the Page is a beautiful, thoughtful, wondrous platformer adventure. Has an emotional, authentic, dual layered story, and creative gameplay. Absolutely amazing.
Wandersong is a pure and wonderful delight. Save the world with music in this lighthearted adventure platformer. The different ways your singing is used are creative and varied. And don't worry, it's plenty playable for the less musically inclined!
Genesis Noir is strange, surreal and beautiful. A cosmic point & click adventure of love and music. Surprising, creative, unique. Oozing with style. Amazing.
Rogue Heroes: Ruins of Tasos couldn't be more transparent, this game is clearly just Zelda as a rogue-lite. But it's REALLY GOOD. No surprises, but a lot of fun, with town-buiding, co-op, variety of classes and items, and more.
