Some new games this week, both played and acquired. Don’t worry, no actual pictures of clowns are in this post.
Calico is a game about making quilts and attracting cats to lay on them. It’s a very casual concept, but that doesn’t mean it’s a casual game. Playing one to four players in thirty to forty-five minutes also means it fits nicely into most collections. Does that mean this is a game worth getting so your cats can sit in the lid? Let’s check it meow-t.
Incoming Transmission is up on Kickstarter for another round of backing, trying to take last year’s successfully funded game and make it bigger and better. The combination of hidden intention, light programmatic movement, and cooperative goals makes for a unique experience. Let’s see if it has the lasting power to reach out to the stars or is just some local broadcast.
I have always enjoyed racing games, in both video and analog formats. Rallyman GT is a new take on the very popular Rallyman game, and is only on Kickstarter for another couple of days. Let me swing by, give you a lift, and show you what this baby can do.
