The Creator Of 'Magic: The Gathering' Knows Exactly Where It All Went Wrong

quote [ When they were still in arts school in Seattle in the early 1990s, Jesper Myrfors and Sandra Everingham would sometimes look for inspiration by exploring Fort Worden, an abandoned 19th-century military base at the entrance of the Puget Sound. To them, it felt like a dwarven ruin. One day they found a trap door hidden [?] ]

Ten Years Later, ?Monument Valley? Is a Monument to Mobile Gaming?s Bygone Era

quote [ it appears to him, in hindsight at least, as though Apple was cynically leveraging premium titles like the Apple Design Award?winning Monument Valley to build the iPhone?s reputation in the 2010s. ]

Interesting retrospective, same for some of the earliwr indie hits on PC, I guess.

The beauty and drama of video games and their clouds

quote [ "The problem is they've almost got it right here, but they should curl down rather than up. Other than that, it's Fluctus." ]

Interesting if a bit dull observation on different game clouds

Warner Bros. leave developers feeling "sick and dizzy" as more Adult Swim games are being delisted

quote [ There are many other games that are at possible risk, however, including Desync, Kingsway, Mega Coin Squad, Obllitus, Pool Panic, Rick And Morty: Virtual Rick-ality, Rise & Shine, Super House Of Dead Ninjas, Super Puzzle Platformer, Traverser, and Zenzizenzic. ]

Moves like these hit hard in the midst of other crass cuts. They're delisting stuff that came in through other aquisitions. Thumb is Super Puzzle Platformer ?still a great game (which in this case luckily is also available on GOG)

Evolve Incremental

quote [ a web-based game about first evolving a species from primordial ooze into a sentient species, then guiding that new species into a mighty civilization that will eventually take to the stars and colonize space. ]

Mindless clicker game I read something about. Still clicking in it's early stages but maybe you're a more dilligent clicker than myself.

Kero Blaster

quote [ it's like mega man but instead of having a robot dog you work for minimum wage ]

Coming back to this game, it deserves more recognition. Apart from being funny, sensible, etc. it's very much a nicely crafted miniature experience.

Created by Daisuke "Pixel" Amaya of Cave Story fame this packs 9 languages, chiptune music (with PxTone) and a second, equally long campaign in very lean 8.5MB.

You probably need to like jump'n'run games ? it's very playable on many platforms including mobile. Link goes to wikipedia, quote is top Steam review.
