Treeker - Alone with glasses

In this exploration game, you need to find glasses to reveal new aspects of your surroundings. By solving enigmas, you progress in a surreal world.

The universe is gorgeous and the exploration is enjoyable. The level design is clean and the puzzle parts are fun and fit very well with the global atmosphere of the game.
But it's a bit sad not to see any body part of your character. It creates a feeling of emptiness, mixed with solitude. As for the platformers moments, it's tedious to be on a first person camera.

Those choices were obviously made to simplify the development but they tend to arm the playability. It's still a fun game tinted with parts of the greatest hits of the genre.

Dagdrom - And SPLASH!

An abstract platformer where you throw rainbow colored matter to make your way.

The game is neat and creative. The atmosphere is very present and reinforced by the minimalist music. The beauty of Ludum Dare, and this game is a perfect example, is it shows that making a great game can be that simple.

It was built for Ludum Dare 32 and made it to the third place.
