A Game By Its Cover 2018: Treasure Chest #87


What’s a “Treasure Chest” article?

It’s a short text and video compilation of three to five small jam games we really liked for some reason (like core concept, artwork, effort etc.).

Explore procedurally generated worlds in this colorful experience. Glide through the air as you watch sounds turn into colors and tunes turn into shapes. Just relax, and if you want to move on to a new realm, just chase after one of the balls and touch it – a new environment already awaits you, with its own little characteristics. The ideal virtual place to take a deep breath.

In this game, you are a cookware of the particularly intelligent and combative sort: If someone on the street tells you that they are hungry, then you can just wander around, search for the different ingredients and steal them from strangers. Someone wants a meal with tomatoes? Just steal the fruit vegetable from the front yard! Or does someone want to have a sip of wine? The restaurant around the corner has certainly still a bottle in stock! But be careful: The original ingredient owners are not too thrilled with your commitment…

On a miraculous as well as wonderful island grow trees with very special fruits: The so called dream berries. Who eats them, can enter one of four dreams and experience the most different things there. Your dinner turns into a pile of cows, a submarine is flooded and stared at by glowing, friendly creatures, a dance floor in the middle of the universe awaits you, and huge balls bounce up and down rhythmically on a planet. A dreamy exploration game, which will make you smile.
