Naya’s Quest caps off Terry Cavanagh’s awesome summer

More great free videogames that you don’t deserve

Terry Cavanagh has had an awesome summer. He participated in an amazing collaboration with the likes of Jasper Byrne (Lone Survivor, New Game+) called Experiment 13, his beloved 2D platformer VVVVVV was announced for the PS Vita, and his perfect iOS action puzzle game Super Hexegon made a cameo appearance in Adventure Time. How do you top all that? The rest of us would probably just eat two delicious burgers and call it a done deal, but not Terry Cavanagh. He went and released another free videogame for you to enjoy. Again. What a rascal.

Naya’s Quest is a isometric platformer that, in true Cavanagh fashion, asks players to rethink their perception. It reminds me a little bit of 3D Hopper (the 2010 3DS game demo about a cat on a pogo stick which was sadly never released to the public) except with slightly less hopping and a lot more genius. That’s saying a lot, considering that a cat on pogo stick is well known to be in the upper echelon of all-time ingenious ideas ever.
