Plumbers Don't Wear Ties

Prepare to die! No seriously, prepare to die over and over and over again ...

After over eight months of beta releases, Spelunky version 1.0 has finally been released. If you missed it previously, Spelunky is a exploration platform game with random levels, so it plays different each time. Its random layout, interesting interactions with items, destroyable scenery, and robbable shops have earned it comparison with Nethack, the classic roguelike game. Currently Windows only, but announced for XBox Live Arcade.

Dangerous trap, high difficulty map, and unexpected situation wait for you.

Holdover is a difficult but compelling exploration platform game. Marie must escape from an abandoned scientific research installation, with no assistance other than recordings left by her father decades ago. Makes extensive and very good use of the "hold your breath" mechanics found in many such games. Available both in Japanese and bad English. A more reasonable English translation can be downloaded from the IndieGames weblog and dropped into the game's folder. [more inside]

Unprotected Memory

So, you watched the movie Tron, and now you want to run your computerized guy off of the game grid and into the rest of the computer system? That's exactly what Daniel Wellman did on his Apple IIgs.

Transcendence, the outer space exploration/trading/shoot 'em up, has hit version .99. I cannot begin to tell you how much time I sunk into previous releases -- the Nethackish randomness, both in the layout of the systems to explore, and the mysterious devices and substances to apply to your ship in hope of an extra edge, makes the replay value immense. RGCD has a glowing review and an interview with the developer. (Mentioned but not actually linked to earlier.)

ROM CHECK FAIL is a goofy little PC game, in the classic 1980's arcade/home console genre of ... err ... Use the space bar to fire your blaster. Or sword. (Or jump.) Use the arrow keys to control your ... guy as if you were playing ... that ... classic game. Eliminate all the enemy, well, things in the expected way, and go on to the next maze/planet/cave/highway. Look, just play it, OK? It's fun!

GTFO noob

Magical dragon-faeries? Flaxen-hair'd elflords? Dank scary dungeons, reminiscent of Grandpa's basement? Kids' stuff. Whether you're a Camwhore, Emo Kid, or Troll, Forumwarz everything relevant about the Internet (i.e., Forums and IM) distilled down to a browser-based RPG. Buy warez from shady Russian dealers, upgrade your hacking/whining skills, pwn total strangers by crashing their web sites, and join or fight a shadowy government conspiracy. You have nothing to lose but your dignity.

Shout N Dodge

Shout n Dodge Got a microphone? Then get ready to play Shout n Dodge, a simple flash game that uses the microphone for input. Shout (or speak, or sing, or ...) to steer your ship upwards, be quiet to go down. A perfect use for my lovely (yet out of practice) singing voice.
Tip: while the practice screen is up, right click on the game, and adjust the record volume until you can steer without losing your voice.

Hint: Did you shoot the puppy? Then don't do that again.

Don't Shoot the Puppy. RRRRThats5Rs, maker of truly pointless games, has made the opposite of every shoot-em-up on the Internet. (Warning, the "truly pointless" link, like many games on the site, is a total waste of time.)

Pre-order your Mega64 today!

Mega64! Some easily-amused folks with a video camera and a local public access TV channel have created the ultimate video game system. The Mega64 literally places you in the game. And by "the game" any game for any system that makes you look like a total jackass if you try to act it out, and by "you," I mean two unwilling playtesters.
Thrill to Solid Snake infiltrating a grocery store! Puzzle out where to fit a walking Tetris piece! Laugh as some bozo spits out coins while saying "Barf!"
While you're at it check out the Splinter Cell videos hosted off-site.

Urban Dead -- a massively-multiplayer zombie apocalypse game

Urban Dead is a browser-based, grid-mapped multi-player game where you play the survivor or victim of a zombie outbreak in a quarantined city centre. Tired of playing a pseudo-hero in a fantasy Kingdom of Loathing? Play a scientist, soldier, or ordinary civilian in a modern city, and try to avoid being infected. Or skip the "avoid" phase, and just play a zombie.
