Sluggish Morss the merrier with these brilliant, strange, philosophical treks through spacetime

If you haven't played Will You Ever Return? (or Will You Ever Return? 2), then I've just made your Wednesday. These two games take you on a journey through a claymation hell populated by folktale monsters, demons and - worst of all - Justin Bieber; they're a collage of beautiful and hideous imagery, philosophy and pop-culture jokes, and a reminder that most of the games we play today have the imagination of an explosive red barrel. When you're done, know that their creator Jack King-Spooner has teamed up with fellow developer Jake Clover to release two new interconnected, cyberpunky, giant-baby-faced games, entitled Sluggish Morrs and Sluggish Morrs: A Delicate Time in History. You should play them.

Sluggish Morrs - which appears to be largely Jake Clover's game, though there is a bit of overlap - isn't big on explanations, but its sublimely weird imagery (featuring nifty visual effects) should make at least some sense once you've sampled King-Spooner's A Delicate Time. This more conversation-heavy adventure is reminiscent of his previous work, but with a less jokey tone, a slightly less ramshackle art style, and a fascinating far-future sci-fi theme.

They're both fantastic, and awesome - in the literal sense of the words. The following videos should give you some idea of what you're in for.
