Apart from the Limbo Post the other day I realise I haven’t updated my games pages for a while and equally that the Games page is rather unwieldly so I might start a new one.
Jesse Venbrux, the quiet goliath of satisfying but charming games responsible for the Karoshi Series has chalked up another off-kilter game called Maru which has been followed by a more mainstream exploration of the technique called They Need To Be Fed. PC download only I’m afraid.
Both are brilliant at what they are trying to do and similar in their game-play but if you try They Need To Be Fed first to get your head around the controls (and it’s an addictive 35 levels) and then follow it by the earlier Maru you’ll be spoilt by its charming story and subtle but deep explanation of the importance of Death (again!).
