I've already mentioned this game in the personal games thread, but I thought I would get the ball rolling. Imaginal is a pretty cool game. From the game page:

Hi I'm Lisa, and I've been thinking a lot lately about how I used to catch lightning bugs when I was little. I sort of miss it. Would you like to come catch some with me? It'll be super chill, we can just hang out, catch some bugs and have a chat.

Imaginal is a singleplayer game about catching lightning bugs and hanging out with a friend. Catch a lightning bug when it is lit by clicking on it. If you catch a blue bug you will get an insight!

I think this game is a good example of how you can make a game that just feels a certain way instead of making it about some gameplay mechanic. People generally think of games as a series of challenges, but they don't have to be that way. So yeah, you all should play this!

Thanks very much for the kind words! :)

Thank you for making a cool game!

This felt like I was playing a children's book. The chunky silhouettes, heavy pastels, and platitudes worked well together to recreate my experience of browsing through a Caldecott-winner while waiting in the lobby at the dentist-office.
