What is money? Nothing more than metal and paper! *tears $5 note in half, blood starts pouring from the tear, nearby coins start screaming*

#igfreviews Trepidatious Peak by me: fall damage rules, having only three checkpoints rules, monochrome rules, no sound effects rules. 4/5.
#igfreviews Delve Deep by me: No one's reviewed this yet because everyone who played it died of thousands of heart attacks. A zillion/five.
http://www.glorioustrainwrecks.com/node/2013 - I've fixed some bugs and added an '@' symbol to help you test individual sections of your Tombed levels quickly.
http://www.glorioustrainwrecks.com/node/2013 - I decided it was time to put Tombed and Tombed II into a single executable. And I tossed in some extra features too.
Every time a platform game character runs off an edge then falls vertically straight down, I imagine the slide-whistle from Wrecking Crew.
I've suddenly thought of two questions: 1) Who made Cactus Block, and 2) Why isn't it in the IGF kart.
"It was at that moment that my eyes glazed over. Then she applied the glaze to the rest of my face while I tugged at my bonds."
Video game scientist looks down microscope - sees hundreds of tiny keys encircling hundreds of tiny keyholes.

"O-of course I'm a bird!" said the bat. "M-m-my beak fell off, that's all! You guys molt feathers, I molt beaks! A-as well as feathers."
http://www.glorioustrainwrecks.com/node/1974 - Here is a new game of mine: "ABOVE v. BELOW", an arcade game mashup.
"Shoo!" he cried, sending the animal scurrying. "I've had that two-leaves-in-a-pot for four apartments now, and I'm not losing it to you!"
They own framed pictures of Notch and Nifflas... They listen to demoscene chiptunes 24/7... They are derisively known as the "swedeaboos"...
"A peanut sat on a railroad track, his heart was all a-flutter, round the bend came-" *dies suddenly, leaving audience hanging for eternity*
Peanut butter too thick... jaw completely immobilised... this is the end... Honey, I'm saying goodbye with my eyes, as my mouth cannot...
"Hi, this is my podcast about art and fine culture." *proceed to loudly hum Tchaikovsky's Piano Concerto No. 1 for two straight minutes*
"Hi, this is my podcast. As you can see, this is just a text file. Please paste it into a text-to-speech program instead of reading it."
"Hi, this is my podcast. Sorry I'm poor so my only mic is this *holds up tin can and string* and I still need a pinhole-camera-to-USB plug."
Battle Kid 2: Mountain of Torment (demo ROM). Interestingly, their scythes do damage even while falling.
By the way, that GIF contained Homestuck spoilers… unless it turned out to be a doomed timeline! Or a fake flashback in a ghost's dream!
Not really sure what exactly I achieved by making a GIF of one of the few non-GIF moments in a webcomic consisting almost entirely of GIFs.
http://l.j-factor.com/gifs/Homestuck-Seer-Descend.gif - CG: IS GIF REALLY A VIDEO FORMAT? EB: yes, absolutely.

DARREN I AM GOD TRAPPED IN A CHIHUAHUA. QUIT YOUR JOB AND TAKE UP INTERPRETIVE DANCE. I TRAPPED MYSELF IN A DOG TO TELL YOU THIS YOU IDIOT.
Caution: this scary game has processor-intensive levels of terror! Close all open windows before playing (so no one can hear you screaming).
In this game you feel that your party is silently judging you every time you attack an enemy, and constantly wonder if you're "good enough".
In this game you tell your party a joke, but the wind howls as you say the punchline so you can't tell if they heard it or just disliked it.
In this game you can trick a ghost into bending over and then you kick them but your foot goes through them and it's really awkward.
New peanut butter tier list released! Top tier: crunchy. Bottom tier: smooth. Competitive sandwich community is up in arms.
What I will also say is that it's a bit silly that they made a mash-up of 7 arcade games, then filled it with finicky block pushing puzzles.
What I will say about Mega Mash is that its best bit is when the dragon from Salamander morphs into the brick snake from Roy's Castle.

"The white square vs. the buzzing noise. The blurry splot vs. the yellow flicker. The great rivalries of pre-apocalypse computer gaming."
"I speak of the great videogame rivalries. The lemon-with-mouth vs. the jellies-with-eyes. The chipped triangle vs. the crappy octagon."
http://zarat.us/olc/!v - "OmniLudiCon, you say. Son, don't you think it's time you grew some taste and self-respect?"
http://zarat.us/olc/!u - "O-OmniLudiCon? S-surely you don't expect me to ever play THAT again! Nosiree!"
"OF COURSE I can't raise the dead RIGHT now, but you know I'd figure it out eventually, with infinite time to myself, and NO DISTRACTIONS."
"All you had to do was die and things would be fixed. I'd have brought you back to life later, as I explained in the Spinning Knife Room."
"You've been refusing to die for so long that my homicide routines have copied over all my peace routines. You must agree that's your fault"
