    My picks from 200 rated games

    Me and my team have finished rating 200 games, and I’d like to take a moment to pick some of my favorites that I’d hope you’ll try out.

    I’m going to present two different lists: one of games that I see as particularly well designed, and another for games that are awesomely weird.

    5 Best games for normies:

    A beautiful vertical-scrolling shooter with a wonderfully animated squid boss and a very well balance of difficulty.



    A puzzle platformer that has one of the more rare takes on the concept of “Tiny World” by having the game mechanics revolve around your blue nerd dude’s claustrophobia.


    Tiny Garden Of Hope




    Save Your Folks


    5 best awesomely strange games:


    Baby Farm

    Plant those babies in the ground, build your own, baby farm.


    Big Bad Dom Finds a Little Happiness

    I really have to wonder what the combat system would have looked like. (The author has declared it to be Not For Human Consumption. I suggest you violate his wishes in a bizarre reversal of power roles.)


    Eye Quest
