[TAG] - Announcing the Host for TAG September 2013

Top Three Games

There were 14 entrants for August 2013 TAG, ultimately creating 10 different games using a variety of tools, styles and theme combinations. Even though there wasn't a huge number of complete games it will still tough to narrow down my favorite game, and in the end I narrowed it down to 3 games.

HairQuest - by Hunter Harris



Clearly using all three themes from TAG, HairQuest is a text based RPG game about "Collecting hair to destroy the world". HairQuest has some flaws but is a work in progress and, taking that into account, it's pretty decent looking and enjoyable.

Hairball - by Udell Games


Hairball is a game about a bacterium named Tim (it doesn't get much funkier than games about bacteria doe it?). Hairball felt like a complete experience despite the authors protest on the website. It opens with a lovely kid-friendly-seuss vibe and its a pretty solid game bar some control issues.

Minimalism 2: Red Ball - by Martin Monosys



Minimalism 2 is a super simple break the blocks type game with a twist, you control the trajectory of the ball with impulses and a first person view. Left click to send your ball flying forwards. Its simple but still quite unique and that's why It was one of my favorites.
