Day of the Dev Puzzle Game Showcase
The Day of the Dev showcased 17 Indie Games. This was a bit too much to cover in one bite-sized news story, so in this article, this lists the puzzle games. Also, check out the action-adventure games and my top picks.
- Find Me: This one of the games that have come out of the Girls Make Games project. Inspired by limbo, it is a puzzle-solving game where you play as a shadow that is separated from your person. It will be available later this year on Steam followed by a release on consoles.
- An Airport for Aliens Currently Run by Dogs: Strange Scaffold developed an open-world comedy game that simulates a terrible airport. The game constantly changes as you play, so this means no two playthroughs will be the same. If you are feeling a little down during the current Covid 19 shutdown, this game might be the thing to lift your spirits. It is unapologetically joyful and kind. The game consists of silly jokes and cute animal stock photos.
- Mundaun: Hidden Fields developed a game that needs to be seen to be appreciated. The entire game is meticulously hand-drawn. It features a dark horror story full of secrets to uncover and puzzles to solve.
- Alba – A Wildlife Adventure: Ustwo Games developed this game. I was a little disappointed that the sneak peek did not show much. But if their previous games Momentum Valley, and Assemble with Care are any indication, I expect the game to be a beautifully illustrated puzzle game.
- MaskMaker: MaskMaker is a VR game designed by InnerspaceVR. A bit of the game was shown, but not much. Presumably, the game will be similar to their previous game A Fisherman’s Tale. So, if you enjoyed that game, and/or VR doesn’t make you queasy, you might want to learn more about this game.
