Sokoban puzzle game

The Bevy of AAA Developers have shut down every free game development engine. It's up to you to break into their facility, figure out the puzzles and steal the Godot game engine back!

Steal Godot is a short, simple puzzle game featuring blocks, switches, doors and ice. Everything in the game was made by me (Nicholas Walton) with a lot of feedback and ideas from my wife, Froggie717.

It All Revolves Around You

September 21st 2015
Gravity game

A giant black hole is hurtling towards Dust Town and you are the only thing in the entire universe that can save them! You'll have to grow from a speck of dust to an asteroid, a planet, a star, to something large enough to defeat the black hole.
Because in this game, like no other, It All Revolves Around You!

This is a simple game where you must absorb smaller objects in space to grow while avoiding the larger ones. The twist is that in this universe, in classic video game fashion, you are the centre of attention - and gravity.
