Bicyclism EP

developed by David Evans  |  Platforms: Windows, Mac, Linux


“A physics-based survival racing game where YOU are the bicycle. Learn to ride a bicycle in an artistic fashion! Grab some controllers and crash into ride with your friends!”

There should be three worlds and ten levels on release (in addition to ride through procedurally generated levels), as well as support for up to 4 players in a split screen mode (the gifs show 3 player split screen).

Cubicolor out on Steam

developed by Moltenplay  |  Platforms: Windows, Mac, Linux


“A minimalist puzzle game with soothing piano music.

“The rules are simple: Match the color patches on the board and reach the exit, all on one single path. Every tile can only be touched once before it falls into nothingness. The game features 50 different levels and gets harder as you progress, always accompanying you with relaxing piano tunes.”

You can pick it up on Steam for $1.99 (or your regional equivalent).  There’s also a thread going on Reddit where you can pop the creator some questions about the development process.

Manifold Garden

developed by William Chyr


“An exploration-puzzle game that imagines a universe with a different set of physical laws.

“Set in an Escher-esque world filled with secrets and mysteries, you utilize a unique gravity-manipulation mechanic to turn walls into floors. Learn to see the world through whole new perspectives as you navigate mindboggling architecture and solve seemingly impossible puzzles.”

Currently in development for PC, Mac, Linux, & PS4, it’s recently gone through a name change (formerly Relativity).  The developer has been experimenting with glitch art, which I thought was really cool.  You can see some examples below, or check out 100 wallpapers on the website.  You’ll be able to make your own in the game in photography mode which allows you to change the shaders and art style.

The gameplay gifs were made using an older gameplay video on the Playstation blog from E3, things have improved since then, and will improve a lot more by release. :)
