The IGJ2 Games

Stunt HamstersSeventeen experimental games from this year’s Indie Game Jam are now available for free download! Now you can see what all the fuss was about.

Orange TreeConstraints: they run on the PC, I’m guessing requiring a decent videocard, and unfortunately (but sensibly) they require a Playstation controller. And therefore also require an adapter to hook the PS controller to your PC’s USB port. I’m going to buy the adapter for $13 here; if you need a Playstation controller too, on the same site you can get a good one for $20. (Here’s a Google search for more options.)

I’ve read somewhere that the source code will be available, perhaps on sourceforge. If I found out anything I’ll post it here. Note all these games use Atman Binstock’s 2D physics engine, and several were scored by Michael Sweet.
