Pixeljam launches Potatoman Seeks the Troof, new bundles


9:30 PM on 12.19.2012



In addition to its work on Glorkbot's Mini Adventure and other projects in the pipeline, Pixeljam Games has been busy with Potatoman Seeks the Troof, a difficult, minimalistic platformer that's described as being "potatosophical." Sounds about right! The new game is available now as a standalone for $3, in a trilogy bundle for $5, and in Pixejam's Octology for $10.

There's a site dedicated to these bundles that lays it all out. I couldn't finish Potatoman, which is indeed not an easy game, but I'll have to go back and give it another shot. I need to know "the troof," as it were. There's also something oddly charming about the protagonist.

If you're down with the studio's music, The Octology seems especially worth it. In total, this comes with downloadable versions of Potatoman, Planeteri (ambient album with an interactive visualizer), the Bitku beta (pixel art app), Snowball (rad pinball game), Dino Run SE, Marathon of Doom (a Dino Run challenge), Pixeljams Vol. 1, and the Potatoman Soundtrack. Lastly, the Holiday Bonus bundle has all of this, Dino Run Text Adventure, and the Beelzebuds alpha for $15.

Review: Nihilumbra

There's a nugget of a solid game here in Nihilumbra. Unlike many of the PlayStation Vita's offerings, it uses the touchscreen in a novel way that doesn't feel tacked on or forced. And the puzzle-platforming is supported well by an ethereal art style, score, and sound design. You just have to wade through a jumble of pseudo-philosophy to get to it.more

Review: Gunman Clive 2

I don't think anyone, including the game's creator, expected Gunman Clive to be such a massive hit. As an homage to retro platformers it was a joy to play, and the ridiculously cheap base price made it easy to take the plunge. Gunman Clive 2 delivers pretty much everything you'd want out of a sequel, even if it doesn't push the envelope.more
