There's a man on a beach. The beach is empty. Empty as his heart. A heart alone, abandoned love. Love was left. Left in the warmth. The warmth of her digital breath. Her breath as neon glow. Glow as the sun. The sun sleeping in pillows. The pillows of clouds. The clouds form a bed. A bed for my soul. A soul that is restless. Restless like the gulls. The gulls on the beach. The beach in my heart. My heart pushes waves. Waves of blood through my veins. Veins pulled by the moon. The moon, cold heart of the galaxy. The galaxy at the end of the boardwalk. The boardwalk she used to walk on. Walking slowly, an old woman. A woman, alone, a woman studying love as a scientist. A scientist experimenting. Experimenting in the laboratory of her heart. Her heart, an ocean, waves of life. Life is cherished in the harshness of space. Space embraces us, crushes us with its hollow breath. Breath of a lover. A lover at the table. The table with the chess board. A board receives your move. Move me with your moves. Move me with your moves. Move away. Then move away. Away from the warmth, the silence inside. Inside disappears when we are on the beach. The beach caressed by the waves. Waves as fingers of the moon. The moon, heart of emptiness. Empty full empty full empty full heart. Heart to conquer, heart to move. The move again the move. To move the piece with words. Words from the writer. The writer, the woman. There's a woman on the beach. The beach is empty. Empty as her heart. A heart alone, abandoned love. Love was left. Left in the warmth. The warmth of his digital breath. His breath as neon glow. Glow as the sun. The sun sleeping in pillows. The pillows of clouds. The clouds form a bed. A bed for my soul. A soul that is restless. Restless like the gulls. The gulls of the sea. The sea gulls of the moon. The moon of the sand. The sand of the moon. The moon of the water. The water of the waves. The waves of the veins. The veins in the body. The body that you touch.

Why so serious? Big Huggin' is a platform scroller played with a custom 30 inch teddy bear as controller. Players complete the game by providing several well-timed hugs to their bear. Hug the bear to help him pass life's obstacles - no boulder is too tall, no hole too deep, no winter too cold for a hug to help. It is an experiment and gesture in alternative critical interface. Instead of firing toy guns at countless enemies or revving the engines of gas guzzling virtual cars, why not give a hug? Why not play differently?

Big Huggin' is the 9th game in the Critical Gameplay collection. Critical Gameplay is a single developer/designer collection designed to help reevaluate the way we play. They are meant to change our perspective on gameplay experiences. As Critical Cartography changes the way we perceive the world, Critical Gameplay seeks to offer alternate perspectives on the way we play. Big Huggin' has been shown in Baltimore, East Lansing, Philadelphia, Paris and others. The rest of the Critical Gameplay games have been shown in cities in North America, South America, Europe and Asia. Each game aims only for intellectual profit.

A feel good game, for when you need good feelings.

Bottom Feeders is a Facebook game based on the simple action of plunging a net down from your boat using the mouse cursor. The game is a side scrolling experience, based on real-world crabbing where the player will use the net to scoop up bottom-feeding critters as it drags across the ocean floor in the time allowed. Bottom Feeders is intuitive, even for non-game players, with a clear cause-and-effect dynamic that allows the player to finesse their technique on each level. From the beginning, each level not only becomes progressively harder to play, but with a wide variety of objects to interact with, becomes more interesting - introducing a strategic element. Your goal is to gather as many critters as you can in the time allowed to gain the highest score. There is a wide variety of characters for the player to catch which are clearly distinguishable by shape and color and given a good deal of personality through facial expression and animation. Bottom Feeders is a family friendly game for any age and is very intuitive and addicting to play.

The idea came to Russ Phillips after years of fishing and crabbing in the local waters of Seattle, Washington. Applying this background with some kind of simple action to create a game was the hard part. At this point David Kern stepped in and started to prototype the idea and within weeks they had a working demo that they felt was the start of something big and formed a new company, nobodinos (pronounced "nobody knows"). The nobodinos team has been working on Bottom Feeders for approximately 6 months. The team consists of four veteran full time employees, with contract help from outside sources to create the music and help with level construction. They have taken Bottom Feeders from a prototype state to a full-fledged game including power-ups, boat modification, trophies and many new characters to catch or avoid.

David Kern and Russ Phillips started nobodinos soon after the closure of Zipper Interactive (June, 2012) – the creators of titles such as SOCOM U.S. Navy SEALs, MAG, Mechwarrior3, Crimson Skies and Recoil. Both David and Russ worked at Zipper the majority of their careers as Tech Artist and Art Director, respectively. Their newly formed company, nobodinos, is focused on casual and mobile game development.

Camera Obscura is a 2D puzzle platformer whose main goal was to marry level design and game mechanics as closely as possible. By making it so that the player's main ability takes shape directly from their environment, we made it so that every level is its own solution, the level design is the lock and the key, the question and the answer, all at the same time. The player has everything they need to solve every puzzle at all times, relying solely on their ability to think about how the spaces they're in, on, and around can be used to form different things.

We believe that game design is a constant cycle of teaching and testing, and much like skateboards and bicycles don't themselves become more complex as one gains skill, merely the things one does with them, the "Afterimage" ability in Camera Obscura behaves the same way through the entire game. The main challenge and change is how the player is forced to work with that ability and how they deal with increasingly strict demands of accuracy and timing with them. IT is our hope that gamers will find in Camera Obscura a mechanic that is simple to grasp, difficult to master, and rewarding in its execution in skilled hands.

Catch-22 is a relaxing and frustrating one-button arcade game in which you play against your previous self endlessly. Your goal is to score as many points while avoiding your ghost by picking up all the small marbles that float around. Once you collect them all, you will switch to your other self, and the one you leave will become your new ghost. You will now have to evade your own jumps from the previous turn with new jumps, which will become your enemy again once you collect all the marbles!

In this game your past will finally catch up on you, and you will crash into yourself. but in Catch-22 you are the only one to blame for it...

The game was made in January during the Global Game Jam and won the national event in The Netherlands. The name is borrowed from the book from Joseph Heller. A catch22 is a situation where the solution for a problem is also the foundation for that same problem, which makes it unsolvable. In this game your jumps are necessary to avoid the other you and score points, but once you switch they become your problem again which you will have to solve with new jumps.

Being just a one-button game, and having no game mechanics that attack the player but the player himself, Catch-22 is an example of complexity through simplicity and minimalism.

In Chip Chain, you place chips on a board to build groups of equal value, then match those groups to earn a more valuable chip. If you use that new chip in a new match right away, you'll start building a chain of matches for huge bonuses! You can also play power-up cards to help build chains strategically, letting you move chips, modify their values, make copies, and more, helping to maximize your score with even longer chains. The dealer tosses random chips to get in your way, but if you are smart, you can turn the tables and use them to your advantage.

It's easy to learn and play, and has a casual feel, but the system is deeper than expected, so you'll continue coming up with new strategies as you improve your skill. Each game earns you gems to spend on better chips, more powerful cards, bigger hands, gem multipliers, and more. Chip Chain was designed to be free-to-play, but to help your judging, gem packs are free in the IGF build, so feel free to "buy" new gem packs to explore all its features in your limited testing time. Have fun!
