What you're looking at, right there above this text, is a 620px-wide swath of Wonderputt, the best 15-minute putt-putt game I've ever played.

Granted, I'm not exactly a golf aficionado, but Wonderputt -- designed by Damp Gnat and published to Kongregate -- is tightly designed, with totes adorbs animation and an elegant shooting mechanic complemented by surprisingly robust physics.

Wonderputt is actually a follow-up of games like Kongregolf and Adverputt, also by Damp Gnat. What ties all of these games together is the way each hole intersects with a different part of the course, giving the entire project an M. C. Escher-esque level of cohesion lacking from minigolf courses that have to follow those pesky laws of physics.

Play Wonderputt here, and be sure to check out the work-in-progress blog for stills and concept art.

Push Me Pull You is 2-vs-2 gross sausage monster ball wrestling

Hamza was won over by Push Me Pull You at GDC and I wish I had gotten a chance to try it, too. At least now there's some disturbing video of it in action.  "Connected at the waist, you and your partner must use a s...more

Pharrell and his Arby's hat are picking a soundtrack for NBA 2K15

What's happening in basketball these days? That LeBron fellow went back to that city where everyone hated him for a bit and now they're all going to pretend like that didn't happen. Carmelo decided to stay in New York after o...more
