We are also glad to see that many of the other submissions are of a very high quality as well. Here are some of our favourites:
AfterLoop (by eXiin): mobile/tablet game that lets you play as PR8, a utility robot that has been stuck in a loop for over 50 years (yes, Wall-e comes to mind) and needs to find its way out of a wide range of puzzles filled with all kinds of challenges and mysteries.
Atakapu (by FrostyFroggs): a beautiful looking 2.5D platformer for pc that combines classic speedrunner gameplay with a cool gimmick: with the push of a button you can change outfits and simultaneously switch between two types of gameplay (an agility and an attack mode).
Compass (by Linsey Raymaekers): a short, abstract webgame about the long-term process of overcoming fears. It was an entry to the Ludum Dare #34 Game Jam. The intention was to convey a simple idea through intuitive game mechanics.
Domiverse (by Haunted Tie): an intense one hit multiplayer brawler in which you play as crazy (but awesome looking) characters like a starfish, slug or a prince sausage. The aim of the game is straightforward: kick ass and crush all of your opponents.
Organism (by Team Organism): a local multiplayer skill and puzzle game for iPad. Each player controls one of the slingshots, which are placed in every corner. The whole playing field is concentric and symmetric. The main goal is to hit every hole of the organism once.
Soft Body (by Zeke Virant): a meditative action game where you control two beautiful, gooey snakes at the same time. In the game, you paint the world with your body, and as you do so, the world changes around you and reveals new obstacles and other challenges.
