A curated list of small games and projects that I love!
This game is so FUN. The combination of being able to grow/shrink vertically and "kick" by jutting your giraffe neck out gives a surprisingly amount of variation in ways to hit the ball, and there's a lot of fun to be had with spiking and throwing it up high, etc. The gangly leg animation sells the humor on it, and the whole enterprise is wrapped up impeccably with lovely aesthetic, sound, and design all around!
Also impressive to note is the inclusion of AI - it's always sad when a local multiplayer doesn't include an option for Single Player because then, frankly, most people simply won't be able to play it! GVC has an AI mode built in, AND it's good! The AI knows how to play but clearly doesn't have any way of cheating or using some extreme tactic to always win - it's almost like it's there just to have as much fun as you are.
Left Leaning by Tayl1r is a hilarious driving-puzzle game where the player can only turn left and futilely toot their horn in frustration. Your car is always driving forwards, very fastly, and the player is trying to get to the finish line, which is almost always in an inconvenient place. Read More on Quick Bites.
