Made by Eric Howard and Chris­tian Masse for the Low Res Jam, which took place ear­lier this year, LostEth­e­real is an enig­matic, some­what creepy short­form ad­ven­ture. Jam par­tic­i­pants were free to use any pro­gram­ming plat­form they wanted, and as few or as many colours, and even 3D graph­ics if they felt par­tic­u­larly am­bi­tious – the only stip­u­la­tion was that en­tries must fit into a 64x64-pixel res­o­lu­tion. De­spite the diminu­tive real es­tate,

LostEth­e­real some­how man­ages to feel epic thanks to its in­scrutable crea­ture de­signs and un­nerv­ing, min­i­mal­ist sound­track.
