A slew of indie games

Crayon Physics Deluxe

As a child I had a brief stint in drawing. I would scribble prolific galleries of crayon coloured wonderment. The reason for this proliferation is once you’ve laid oversized crayon to paper that’s it. Finality. In Crayon Physics Deluxe however, you can recapture warm, fuzzy, childhood memories but this time your pictures come to life and you can keep on drawing!

The aim is to get a ball from one end of the screen to touch a star at the other. How you manage this task is entirely up you as ever shape you draw takes on the physics of the game.


As well as a name for a stylish hat, Fez is a 2D character. Problem is he’s just realised he lives in a 3D world. A metaphysical problem if ever there was one. Still, he can console himself with the Descartian premise, “I think, therefore I play.”

World of goo

Stick different bits, kinds, sorts, odd and ends of goo together in a Lemming style attempt to save the little gooites. Be prepared to battle giant chainsaws and climb the belly of an eel!

Play the original, Tower of Goo.
