Brilliant painting excellence. Set land into a rotating planet and float clouds in the sky – then after 1 rotation, the view zooms out so you can admire your handiwork. You’ll spend the first minute in awe of the brilliance, then the last 2 minutes etching words, faces and god knows what into the sea.
Choatic 2-player madness. Playing as two balls, your mission is to escort the third red ball to his destination – however you’re being pelted with good and bad spheres. Catch the good, dodge the bad, make it to the end. Oh and don’t touch each other either – it’s baaad, mmkay?
Another extremely odd one. Playing as the ‘King of Winds’, the objective is to fly around, suck in the brown clouds, spit them out as one big cloud… and repeat. Graphically it’s got some very nice effects going on – it’s just the brains of the Kranzky Bros then you have to wonder about…
And that ends the ‘Best Of’ series for Global Game Jam 2009! We’ve got a fantastically mixed bag, with some ingenious, some beautiful, some sinister and some downright ridiculous.
See you again next year, eh?
