And, I'd also like to add that this is the first time in ages that I actually got a game finished that is an actual game and playable from start to finish in the actual way it was actually intended to be.

I'm actually actively stoked about this!

Such a good feeling!

As many submissions as there are, I've decided I'm not going to try to rush an inferior product.
Good luck to all, I look forward to playing your games.

Finished! Puzzles are quite linear but oh well, this has been good practice

Hi all. Any chance at a sneak preview of next month's topic? I'm off tonight and would love to start brainstorming.

This is what I get for trying to be "punny" with a title. :-D

Should be listed as "Strawman Augment" not "Argument" in the poll.

'Cause the game is about a Strawman getting augmented by nanomachines.

@Durinde - That might explain why no one laughs at my puns. They’re just not paying attention. Sorry about that. I’ve changed the necessary bits.

I thought it was pretty clever.

No worries. Although a game about two strawman arguing would have been pretty fun.:-D

Have to say I'm really impressed by the art in the different games. I saw a couple of really fun pieces of animation and each game has its own unique look and style.

I'll try and write down my thoughts on each game I've played so far before voting:

Scarecrow and his Quest to Find a Brain by Slasher
Spoiler: ShowHide
It has some alright puzzles but the story wasn't too interesting, it was just a simple retelling of the movie without Dorothy participating.

Black Friday by Danvzare
Spoiler: ShowHide
It had a very typical slasher movie plot, but it was interesting to play as the killer and the voice acting was pretty good.

Blooded Fields by Nr. 2698
Spoiler: ShowHide
It had a generic intro and premise and the random reference to Jennifer Lawrence was weird, but I cannot really say more since I got stuck early on and couldn't proceed.

The Strawman Augment by Durinde
Spoiler: ShowHide
It had a kind of cute premise and neat pixel art, but I found the choice of music rather grating.

STRAWMAN  BOMBING  DISPOSAL by Mandle
Spoiler: ShowHide
It was pretty funny, although the puzzles wasn't really to my taste.

The Wicked Witch of the West by Cleanic
Spoiler: ShowHide
Lovely pixel art and music, plus there was some good puzzles. All in all a nice short game although I noticed a bug when I tried loading a saved game, the deafault GUI appeared over the top of the screen for some reason, but it didn't hinder gameplay.


I voted for
Spoiler: ShowHide
 Black Friday

I haven't had time to update my feedback but I have voted for:


Spoiler: ShowHide
Black Friday



It was the game that had me grinning from ear to ear from start to finish.


Spoiler: ShowHide
Sniper and Spotter also did that for me but I'm a horror movie fan so personal preference pushed Black Friday over the finish line for me.
