Ludum Dare 29: The Westport Independent

“The Westport Independent” by Double Zero One Zero (Pontus Lundén & Kristian Brodal).

“[A] game about censoring, where you decide what will be available to the public, and what will stay beneath the surface.”

“The Westport Independent” is one of my absolute favorite Ludum Dare entries of all time. It features an important topic – attacks on the freedom of speech and independent journalism – combined with bittersweet, melancholic aesthetics and some minimalistic, but quite effective gameplay. Brilliant stuff, just as the pixel art. Which headlines will be erased under your watch? >>PLAY
