I forgot a couple of little games I released at the end of the year - might be worth a shot for Best Non-Adventure Game and in the case of AGS Cycles possibly even best programming (not that I think my coding was anything special at all, but someone who commented on the game's release thread mentioned that they thought there must have been some nifty programming involved.)



Lunar Lander

Game Page


A one-switch game where you use your engines judiciously to battle gravity and land as gently as possible! Every time you land, you start again from a higher height.





AGS Cycles

Game Page

It's the classic Light Cycles game from TRON, made with AGS.
2-player only with randomised elements so that no two games are ever exactly the same.

Hey, guys!

Here I am to remind you of a grumpy big-beaked detective whose demo has been released almost one year ago, and whose full game will be released in Spring!
This is a comedy-noir adventure with a hard-boiled tough guy as protagonist who has to investigate on a vegetable multiple murder.

What do you think? :)
