It's 3D!

Even though this was a very short, incomplete experience, I did like the aesthetic of it, reminding me a bit of Myst and Neverhood. Not quite enough content to truly be a great game, but the structure is all there.

I really had high hopes for this game given the in-development screenshots, and indeed the game was pretty high quality. I enjoyed the minecraft game mechanic, although ultimately I found the gameplay a bit tedious. I found the idea of forest folk sacrificing themselves for snow to be pretty fascinating, evoking the often odd plot twists in JRPGs.

Being able to read Russian, I enjoyed some nice Russian poetry. I think the gameplay was simple, but fair and not overly frustrating. The reward to read the final poem was pretty compelling. I enjoyed this game.

Mr Perry's Farm

I don't think I've ever caused as much mayhem with farm equipment as I have in Mr Perry's farm. While the game doesn't give much hint as to what you're meant to do in it, creating contraptions whose only purpose, it seems, is utterly demolish poor farm animals caused a lot of mirth to be had in my experience. Unlike most other games, crafting truly had a functional impact on the game that allowed the player to use his creativity to affect the game world.

To the extent that this is a bit of a sandboxy game, I also liked the inclusion of the map editor, which enabled me to create levels of destruction not imagined even by the game's creator.

I particularly enjoyed the poetry and the Japanese exclamations uttered by the animals.

A simple game with a nice aesthetic. I wouldn't say I had great fun in it, but on the other hand, I found it completely inoffensive. The highlight was reading the nice haikus and a compelling snow particle effect.

While understandably incomplete, I truly enjoyed the retro graphics and soundtrack combination. I wish it was a complete game :).

I thoroughly enjoyed the aesthetic of this game, especially the crafting puzzle and the final book monologue. You don't tend to see adventure games in these hacks, and I was glad there was one entry, even if somewhat incomplete.
