    Obscure Top 5

    I just wanted to draw attention to some really outstanding entries that haven’t been showcased a lot already (or at least I haven’t seen them.)

    My Kid Dropped the Planet
    http://www.ludumdare.com/compo/ludum-dare-23/?action=preview&uid=10251
    This one ended up being an enjoyable sort of physics game with some nice dark humor.

    Nineties Hollywood Hacker

    It wasn’t immediately obvious to me, but you’re building your own level in the beginning.  There’s also a nice upgrade path to be found here.

    Core Buster
    http://www.ludumdare.com/compo/ludum-dare-23/?action=preview&uid=8527
    This one is similar to my entry in that you’re mining from a spaceship.  There are lots of planets though and mission-based upgrades.

    World of Marceline
    http://www.ludumdare.com/compo/ludum-dare-23/?action=preview&uid=7969
    This one is difficult to describe.  It isn’t complete as any kind of game and it can’t be called a toy.  It’s thought-provoking and, for me, somewhat moving.  Slightly NSFW graphics depending on where you’re at.

    Submarine: This Ain’t Your Momma’s Bathtub, Tovarisch
    http://www.ludumdare.com/compo/ludum-dare-23/?action=preview&uid=7122
    This is one of my favorites.  It’s not as pretty as some entries and you might have to do some light reading (oh noes!) but it’s all worth it.  The atmosphere is great and I’m looking forward to seeing it with some added features and polish.

      Thank you very much! :)

      Submarine wouldn’t work for me, but I haven’t tried any of the others. Now I know what to check out next!
