Ring In the New Year With the Incredibly Cruel Puppy Shelter

on December 31, 2011 12:00 PM

Another month, another Ludum Dare. This competition among independent developers to create the best game in under 48 hours is held a few times every year, and the most recent one just ended.

The theme this time around was “Alone”, and dev Increpare took that to an almost inhumane degree with his game, Puppy Shelter. At first glance, it appears to be a simple, bland sort of puzzle game, but the little things you do really put that theme to light, and make you feel more alone than you’d ever think a simple Flash game could make one feel.

Check it out here, and don’t say I didn’t warn you.

Allen is an utter whore of a gamer; he's completely open-minded to all games, be they AAA blockbusters or $5 casual children's games. His focus is on indie games specifically, valuing gameplay and ingenuity over sparkly visuals and ridiculous gimmicks. When he's not geeking out over the newest art game, he's out toning his sexy, sculpted shoulders while surfing epic 1.5ft waves, or having a good time with local, high-gravity microbrews.
