Joys of the Medium

a collection by Voidjumper · last updated 2017-10-11 13:30:32

Joys of the Medium is a small collection I started in order to collect and catalogue games I found did something special. 

They epitomise what I love about indies, itch.io and the medium in general. They're short, interactive gems that may be small or rough but were nevertheless made with passion and love. And they show that this medium can be more than spectale cut-scenes or endless killing zones where the only way to interact with any object is with a bullet. 

They're lovely, they inspire me, I think they're great, and you should give them a try.
