Ludum D are

Free­ware A room with a view

PC GAMER (UK) - - Extra + Life -

The theme of the lat­est Ludum Dare game jam was sim­ply “one room”. And even though the de­vel­op­ers only had a week­end to put some­thing to­gether, the re­sult was plenty of games that did won­der­ful things with such a wide-rang­ing brief. Here are some of the smartest of the en­tries: the ones that turn that one room into some­thing spe­cial.

Walkie Talkie

This in­no­va­tive game is part plat­former and part chat room. You leave mes­sages in an on­line fo­rum, be­fore tak­ing con­trol of a lit­tle char­ac­ter and run­ning and jump­ing atop the typed mis­sives them­selves. www.bit.ly/Ludum1

The Last Room

You wake up in a room that’s do­ing its best to mur­der you, but hand­ily you can restart, and restart again, retry­ing as many times as nec­es­sary to Ground­hog Day your way to even­tual suc­cess. www.bit.ly/Ludum2

Nest

Af­ter walk­ing around a sim­ple maze in Nest, you’re asked to do it again, this time by con­trol­ling a char­ac­ter in­side a screen (see above). Things only get more com­pli­cated from there. www.bit.ly/Ludum3
