Praise the rain! Over the last seven days or so, precipitation has saved the UK from becoming a parched post-apocalyptic wasteland, a woman has had a baby, and the great elder god Cthulhu has risen from the ocean depths to enslave mankind. Of course, that last one barely got a mention in the press, thanks to the arrival of that royal sprog. In more exciting news, some bleak, compelling, beautiful and juvenile browser games have been released. I have assembled them below for your edification.
Sequels seem against the spirit of Molyjam - the gamejam weekend that challenged entrants to create games around Peter Molyneux parody twitter account, Peter Molydeux. Sure, we're a year on, meaning a year's worth of new tweets to draw from. But would Molyneux be content with retreading old ground? You know, except for Black & White 2. And all the Fables.
In the spirit of "defying conventions", the Molyjam organisers revealed today that the second competition will draw from actual out-of-context quotes from Molyneux himself. If anything, it's going to be more bizarre than the last one.
The Molyjam is back! MolyJam Deux, the second worldwide game jam where developers create games based on the tweets of Peter Molyneux parody account @PeterMolydeux, will take place from July 5 to July 7.
When the MolyJam was announced a few weeks ago, it was always clear that the results would be bizarre, but it has delivered on an unexpected scale. The jam has come and gone, and we're left with 280 little games based on the mad tweets of master Peter Molyneux parody tweeter, Peter Molydeux, who offered his "Sincere thanks to all who took part in this event" on twitter.
"We have created a new world together, a world in which bears can hug in space. Thankyou"
