I've been looking forward to this new Crawlspace game all week! Yay! It's here! Plus, it features new music by Benjamin Cauley, one of my favorite composers.
If you are not familiar with Jonathan Basile's Library of Babel, you are in for a treat. This interface for is . . . just as, well, I don't have the words for it but no doubt this entire paragraph already exists in the Library of Babel. I'm not going to try it because I might disappear if it's not there. You try it.
The Arcade of Tiny Games includes some of favorite gaming moments so far this year. If you've ever wondered: What happens if don't water my plant? Or: Why is there a paw print on my ceiling? Or: Where is my black tank top? Then, the Arcade is a good place to start. It's a small collection of tiny games that have big hearts. Don't expect to play for long but do expect to end up playing some of the games a few times.
Crawlspace has other fine games, some longer than others, and if you like The Arcade, you'll like some of their other games. If you like games by Grace Bruxner, Steven Lavelle, Davey Wreden, Infinite Fall, Bennett Foddy, and if https://gamesforfriends.club is pretty much your list of your favorite games from last year, you'll like Crawlspace's games.
(Disclosure: I've known the developer for years. I am, in fact, related to the developer. I've even contributed in roundabout ways to some older Crawlspace games. That said, I've spent quite a bit of time looking at games made by developers just getting started and I always look forward to even the most modest Crawlspace projects. Most beginning video game projects are about getting the mechanics/puzzle/physics right and the story, the meaning, the heart is secondary. It's the other way around for Crawlspace.)
