I've just released version 1.5 of my game, Constellation Chaos. I've made a couple of bug fixes here and there, but I'm announcing it here because of the addition of online highscores! Now you can have fun defeating me at my own game...
Download the NEW VERSION
Created for the 3 Hour Astronaut Competition at The Poppenkast, Beef and Cow have teamed up to bring us... A pretty strange platformer. You got your running and your shooting, but where the game really gets interesting is in it's presentation. Cow's pixel art style really gives the game a somewhat creepy feel, and with the random beeps and blops in the background, just forget about it. This game might be a mixed bag for some people, but I say you should try it.

Constellation Chaos is a challenging arcade game with a simple concept: You destroy enemies and gain points by creating constellation trails. Using Z and X keys, (Or left and right mouse clicks) players control the trajectory of a small white astronaut by tilting it's aim cursor left or right. Releasing either key will shoot your astronaut into empty space until he hits a star. There's a bit of a strategic element to this game, as players have to rely on their timing, and their creativity, to create the best constellation trail possible. Right and left arrow keys can now control your cursor.

The Gutter is an "interactive piece of art" designed by Robin Rodrigo Ramirez Rodriquez and Jan Willem Nijman. With the arrow keys, players control a rather drunk homeless man that is simply trying to find a place hang his head for the night. Players will soon recognize similarities between the game itself, and a familiar art game starring an old lady. There is a free demo, and a full version which includes death, and can be purchased for 5 dollars.

JW has just released some info about his latest title, fflood. This game, unlike his other titles, will now cost players 3 dollars. Although not all players have to pay... The game will be begware, meaning that if you have no money to give, just send an email to JW explaining that. All we know about it is: it is a game about construction, it will run in a pretty low resolution, and there will be a demo soon.

Crazy Over Goo is a puzzle platformer created by Banov, that lets players stick, fling,and throw themselves onto 50 stages. The stages themselves can range from being very simple, to keyboard banging within a matter of minutes (Take level 42 for example). The sounds and music fit the simple nature of the game very well, and the high quality tracks are available for download (Save in the same directory as the game for the high quality music in game). All in all, this game will last you for a couple hours, but with the added level creator, the possibilities are practically endless.

When Edmund Mcmillen called this game one of his most ambitious flash games to date, I had to give it a shot.
Most of his games can take from a couple of days to a couple of weeks to make, but this game took 3 months. Spewer is a platformer by Edmund Mcmillen and Eli Piilonen with an interesting mechanic. You can vomit, swim in your own vomit, and then eat your vomit. Barfing can accomplish many things in this game. Need to jump higher? Vomit. Need to create another platform because there is a large pit of spikes under your feet? Vomit. By using a variety of different abilities (pertaining to vomit, of course) there is a lot of room for level design, and judging by the 55+ levels that are packed into this game, you'll be playing this game for a good while. As with Edmund's previous IGF nominated title Coil, this game has a narrative that players have to make up for their own minds. You can catch Spewer when it is released on May 4th.
