Aquaria by Bit Blot (PC/Mac/Linux/Android, 2007-2011).

"The Verse flows throughout Aquaria, through each ripple and wave, through every living being. The Verse binds us, narrator and explorer: my story will become your own, and yours will become mine.

Satisfyingly difficult versus satisfyingly long

In 1987 the first Castlevania was released. It was followed by Simon's Quest in 1988. The difference between the two games is stark. Although they both have the same basic plot lines (kill Dracula) and setting, Simon's Quest introduced an open world and RPG elements, giving eventual rise to the genre known as "Metroidvania". Sequelitis looks at the difference between these design decisions and shows that maybe Metroidvanias aren't quite as much fun as you might remember.

Redder

Friday Flash Fun: Redder is an exploration-based platformer by Auntie Pixelante. It's a little bit like VVVVVV, but with a red/green block switching mechanic instead of a gravity switching one.
