itch.io Recommends a number of the video games from GMTK Jam 2019


We’re breaking information all over at itch.io with final week’s GMTK Jam 2019 coming in as our largest jam ever. With almost 2700 entries GMTK Jam 2019 video games signify an enormous quantity of recreation for anybody to play by. I needed to assist y’all kind by the video games but when I’m being sincere it’s in all probability not possible to make sense of that many video games. That mentioned, I did play a bunch and have some favorites able to share with you! Read on for a trio of tasks I assumed had been neat, and ensure to share a few of your favourite video games from the occasion under.

Tread Lightly

In this haunted mansion the one method by the darkness is a single (if not reliable) gentle bulb. Tread Lightly takes the “only one” theme and pushes you to discover an deserted home within the aftermath of an initially unnamed occasion. The setup isn’t wholly distinctive however there’s a very cool pressure that comes from taking your lightbulb out of a lamp, operating by the darkish to the subsequent lamp and reorienting for a second earlier than the lamp breaks and throws you again into darkness. 

As with any jam recreation, there are some tough edges right here however contemplating the sport was made in a weekend it nails the spooky environment it’s going for. The barrier to entry right here is so low (it’s free and playable within the browser) so it’s straightforward to suggest to anybody studying this.

It Devours our Souls

I didn’t assume there could be a story stealth recreation among the many GMTK jam submissions after I began trying, however It Devours Our Souls grabbed me with its nice model after which stored me with its narrative energy. Your “only one” on this recreation comes from the truth that every stage has you working your method by some gentle stealth motion to gather a gun with just one bullet to kill the identical monster on the finish. These patches of gameplay are cut up by some obscure prose which pushes the narrative about life and transformation ahead and serves because the reward for when the stealth will get just a little irritating. 

I ended up having fun with my time with It Devours our Souls fairly a bit — definitely greater than I expected– however its sturdy narrative and crisp pixelwork struck a chord with me.

Chronodog: Earth Defender

Chronodog is definitely the shortest recreation I performed from GMTK Jam with my ultimate playtime clocking in round 5 minutes, but it surely’s positively the one I’m going to recollect most from the jam. There’s a easy aim right here: cease a meteor from hitting earth, and a easy resolution: use time manipulation to cease it inside one second. Ok so the answer isn’t so simple as the issue, but it surely does contain enjoying as an area canine flipping a sequence of difficult levers, switches, and buttons to get the job accomplished. 

As I mentioned on the prime, this recreation isn’t lengthy however the artwork model is enjoyable and hand drawn with a goofy attraction that makes it onerous to dislike. Figuring out what to do is the problem of the sport, and it’s a enjoyable experience that makes me wish to try the remainder of the builders’ gamographies.
