    I’ve only managed to play about 40 or so of the games so far, and there are some real gems in there.

    As well as the ones you singled out (well, maybe ignoring one of the ones in there šŸ˜‰ ) I really dug Rocket Belt Rawr and Little Girl in Underland.

    Great roundup. I’ve made it through 20 games so far, and that’s taken awhile. Hopefully I’ll meet your standard.

    I made “Hold me closer, Giant Dancer”. if “cp want to play” means you can’t play the game, try downloading the latest version (1.6) from http://www.bigpants.ca/holdmecloser. The torrent has an outdated version of the game, and is missing a fix that helps support older machines.

    I’ve played both “Large Scale Vehicular Stealing” and “Vipe Ut”. The installs are heavy due to XNA2.0. Ironically, the main reason they need XNA is to simulate old monitors/televisions using advanced hardware accelerated graphics!

    Thanks for trying our entry, Road Trip! Not much initial appeal, being a text adventure (much less a Desert Bus adventure), but we didn’t slouch on it, either.

    shrapnel, I did play Road Trip…not for the full ride I admit.

    Thanks for the comment Jim, I’ll try the new version.

    Pacian, I liked LGIU too, but I wish there had been more play to the game. Or maybe I was missing something subtle.
