Must Read: “The Last Game I Make Before I Die” on TA

Great read from Sam Coster, one third of Butterscotch Shenanigans about his fight with cancer and the drive to build the game he’s always wanted to build.

Cancer is a great clarifier. It stripped out all the petty, superfluous aspects of life and demanded just three things when it struck me in 2013: survive, find meaning, and figure out how to look good bald.
This is the story of Crashlands, a massive 2D action-RPG crafting game I’ve been working on with my two brothers since I was diagnosed at the ripe age of 23 with Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma.

Breath of Light is an Easy-Going Way to Pass a Few Hours

Apple N’ Apps Review of zen puzzle game Breath of Light outlines its calming nature, but dings the simplicity of its gameplay.

Everything in Breath of Light shares a similar design goal, and it’s easy to get lost in the style going from level to level. With such an emphasis on Zen, the puzzle components do come up lacking a little bit. There’s nothing truly challenging, or mind bending leaving some of the levels rather bland.

Ticklefluff is Squeezy Tickly Fun

Ticklefluff is an adorable game that’s all about keeping a sentient piece of fluff happy by doing what it requests. This may include poking it, stroking it, and squeezing it. It’s a lot more innocent than it sounds, as AppSpy’s hands-on with the game demonstrates.
