I was just thinking about three games:
These are three games from the last year that were all successful. They all have the following in common:
They can be completed in less than an hour
They are thoroughly bug-tested
They have deep implementation and many small details
They have puzzles, but only light ones that serve the narrative.
I like this kind of game, and I’d like to compile a list of them. I thought of doing it on IFDB, and I probably will later, but I wanted to hear what other people thought. Do you know of any more games like this? I feel like some of Ryan Veeder’s games are this way. What others are out there?
