The procession to calvary
Continuation of Four Last Things by Joe Richardson. This colorful quest consists entirely of images of renaissance paintings that are whimsically animated. As a result, the game looks like one big set of unusual design and competent jokes and in the style of Monty Python.

The other side
And now let's move on to smaller projects - to mobile. This mobile puzzle game is about the story of a family of ghosts who take a journey to find out who they are. They travel through a strange world of conveyor belts that also act like puzzles.
This project is best described as a tamagotchi with feelings. We create a creature by collecting it from multi-colored forms. The challenge is to understand the personality of the creature through small interactions such as touching, giving and playing with gifts, while at the same time taking care of its basic needs. It is a matter of trial and error, creating a mutual language of trust. Each creature has its own personality and will react differently to different factors. For example, one creature likes to be hugged and another doesn't. Eventually, like a matured child, the creature will leave you behind.
Carrion is a metroidvania in which we play as a monster, making our way through rooms and lab tunnels in search of victims. What exactly is this monster? Well, you can describe it as an amorphous creature that feeds on people. The game has a lovely animation style that feels deliberately sloppy and very useful.
Nuts is a fun surveillance puzzle. We are in beautifully stylized forests of blue, green, yellow and orange. Our task, at the direction of the boss, is to install night cameras that will record the movements of the squirrels. Every day you need to review footage and move cameras to find out more. There are also useful items scattered throughout the forest to collect.

You play as two dogs traveling in a world filled with puzzles. Dogs are unusual, they are tied by an elastic belly, like a catdog, but not a catdog. We'll need to bark, bite and jump as we overcome obstacles and navigate themed worlds of food, sleep and play, in co-op or single player.
