Dooder's whimsy will melt your ice heart


6:00 PM on 07.15.2010



2D, sprite-based platformers seem to be the go-to genre for many independent developers. If you aren't the kind of person who grew up on 8- or 16-bit titles, this can be a hard sell. Dooder by Matthew Thomas Seely certainly applies, and I mean that in the best possible way.

Those who are allergic to cute might want to stay away, as Dooder's impossibly delightful style will make you vomit rainbow-colored confetti. There's a free demo, and you ought to play it. No, really. Play it.

The facial expressions -- in particular, the ones shown while Dooder is using power-ups -- are phenomenal. As is the character design in general. Hell, besides maybe the control placement, there wasn't a single thing I didn't like about this demo. I know I'm an easy guy to please, but seriously -- so much potential here.

La-Mulana 2 aims to be more 'intuitive,' still hard as heck

La-Mulana was regarded by some as the hardest game ever. This isn't going to change, though Nigoro's Takami Naramura wants it to be slightly more intuitive so perhaps all those deaths don't lead to warranted frustration and ...more
