Crayon Physics

January 14, 2009

In the last post, you saw my new *favorite* song, in this one, check out my new favorite game:

Crayon Physics Deluxe!

The winner of last year’s “Independent Games Festival,” Crayon Physics is a downright addictive drawing/problem solving/puzzle game that combines the creativity of Rube Goldberg  with the childlike… I don’t know… fun that is inherent in a box of crayons. That’s the part that got me hooked – the simplicity and charm of the crayons. There are plenty of Rube Goldberg-esque games on the market that are all about creative mechanical solutions – but none of them can be done with a purple crayon.

See a video of it in action on the site or a clip of some of the creative solutions to the first level of the game below:

You can either download the free demo or buy a copy for $20. (Only catch is that a version for the Mac is still in progress.)

    OMG… I would like to smack you. Just when I should be reading/studying 30+ chapters of advanced scientific material you go and post WORLD’S MOST ADDICTIVE GAME EVER (for nerds like us). GGGRRRRRRR… when I am begging you to proof read and I need you to read papers in the middle of the night because I waited until the last minute just remember that you posted this game!
