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.).

The world is full of little wonders, even if we do not always recognize or appreciate them as such. This Bitsy game introduces seven such wonders and at the same time gives an explanation why these potentially inconspicuous everyday encounters are so intriguing. Fascinating and beautiful.

A religious experience. A source of inspiration. A collapse of the senses. An eternal search. A journey into the unknown. A seizure of the soul. An outcry. A poetry. A perception of the imperceptible. A heating of the synapses. A creative force. A strange power. A radiance in the distance. It’s hard to describe this game. It is something inbetween.

Those who long for fantastic places and narratives can develop an unhealthy desire for the sublime. This desire becomes a hunger that devours everything. But at some point even the last exciting story is told. What is left afterwards? This is the question that this game is focused on and it reveals a hopeful end to us.
