Terry Cavanagh's indie hit VVVVVV
was an instant success, melding a Commodore 64 look and feel to a difficult but forgiving platformer whose only controls are move left, move right, and reverse gravity. The second edition of the game expanded from Windows and OSX to Linux, and added a level editor which could be used to make and export custom maps. Today, Cavanagh has announced VVVVVV: Make and Play Edition
, which contains only the level editor and the ability to play custom levels, and which can now be downloaded for free for Windows, OSX, and Linux.

is the new game from Terry Cavanagh
It looks like a simple isometric-view platformer but every level (once the game proper starts) is essentially an optical illusion.
It will do your head in. In the best possible way. [more inside]

A minute is a long flippin' time. Fill it like you care.
One of the most minimalistic games to be released last year, Super Hexagon
has been praised by many as being hypnotic, addictive
, briiliantly designed, and devilishly challenging. It's a game that, like Tetris
, delivers pleasure with each inevitable failure, and is simply about reaching escape velocity from your own feeble reflexes. The game has a reputation for turning one's appreciation and apprehension of its challenges into intense addiction
, constant improvement
, and fervent devotion
