Clover may appeal to gamers looking for the extraordinary

Clover may appeal to gamers looking for the extraordinary photo



It's hard not to look at a game like Clover and be immediately reminded of indie darling Braid. That's far from a bad comparison to make, as Braid left a lasting impression on many a gamer who played it, but Clover's introspective music and lovingly hand-drawn look immediately remind you of a breed of game that has the courage to be very different.

Coming out for Xbox Live this May from Binary Tweed, Colver is described as a "political platform puzzler", which definitely piques my curiousity. You can watch a trailer for the game after the jump, which asks at the end "What do you choose to believe?"A thoughtful game, indeed. I can't wait to see more of it.

Deejay from Binary Tweed remarks on their dev blog about the maddening process of being approved for XBLA and shares some thoughts about XNA framework. You may find that an interesting read, especially if you are developing in hopes of getting your game out there in the future. I'll be keeping a close eye on this one, and will bring more news your way as soon as I hear it, but even from the little I've seen, I think Clover just became one of my most-anticipated downloadable titles of 2009. Stay tuned for more.

Ironically, the Kickstarter for Hollow Knight looks solid

I have had my eye on Hollow Knight for a few days, but had not yet pulled the trigger on highlighting it. It is a pretty 2D action game (though the color palette is a bit muted for my taste) starring some sort of insect-pers...more

Solve your own murder in Why Am I Dead At Sea

You have been murdered, and you are now a ghost. It is up to you to solve the mystery of your own death. No, not like that. No, not like that either. Okay actually, it is sort of like Ghost Trick. It looks like the spirit in...more

Need something free to pass the time? 0h h1 is sort of like binary sudoku

I have always been an unapologetic fan of Minesweeper. I have been playing it for longer than any other single game, and I will be playing it as long as I can imagine. It never changes in any fundamental way, but it always wo...more
