Bored at Work? You Need Grief In Your Life
Once again, the guys over at the Indiegames blog have discovered a gem, a little free indie game called Grief. It’s a 2D platformer with retro graphics, that employs a polarity mechanic; using certain “buttons”, you can freely switch between light (“optimism”) and dark (“pessimism”) worlds to not only alter the layout of a level, but also gain different abilities to access areas you previously could not.
I’ve been playing for a solid 30 minutes, and while the gameplay isn’t anything too new, it’s still charming as all get out, and the atmosphere of the game is just all sorts of wonderful. You can download the game at GameJolt here.
