I Have Brig Plans www.bit.ly/brigplans Michael Pauley is an Australian engineering and mathematics researcher who uses Ludum Dare jams to hone his hobbyist game development chops. His latest entry, I Have Brig Plans, is a masterful block-based puzzle game that melds elements of Minesweeper and
Tetris. In it you must construct cells for a variety of prisoners with varying accommodation requirements. Humans, for example, will only be happy in a rectangular or square cell, while cockroaches hate open spaces. Energy beasts, meanwhile, can’t be housed adjacently to each other for reasons that should be obvious to anyone who’s ever dealt with a pair of them. One final type of prisoner, the shapeshifter, will helpfully become whatever you need it to be to make everything fit on a grid in which no square can go unused.
