Bird­song and The Sun And Moon creator Daniel Linssen’s lat­est Ludum Dare en­try con­tin­ues his streak of sub­ver­sive ex­per­i­ments with Win­dow frame, a plat­former about vam­pire hunt­ing that has a thing for win­dows. It takes place in a small win­dow on your desk­top, which moves around with you, re­veal­ing a blink­ered view of a por­tion of the level. You’re armed with six stakes that you can fire at en­e­mies, into the ground or into the edges of the win­dow. Right-click on one em­bed­ded into the lat­ter and you can drag the edge of the win­dow to­wards you to cre­ate safe pas­sage over spikes, ob­scure a can­non’s line of sight, or cre­ate a wall-jump­ing op­por­tu­nity. Six vam­pires serve as bosses, your to­tal count of stakes re­duc­ing by one af­ter each en­counter. It’s con­found­ingly bril­liant.
