I'm working on a new game and sometimes I'll post screenshots of the evolving world map here.

If you make games of any kind you should put a submission in here for the thing I run: docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAI

Most importantly, you don't have to be present at the show itself if you can send a PC build.

Leftfield shows anything from weird prototypes and art projects to commercial indie games. It says the deadline is today, but tbh, it's the weekend and a bank holiday, so I'm not going to be looking until Tuesday 👀

It does not in any way respect your time, but at the same time I can't help but respect it.

Regarding last boost: I have really fond memories of playing Enigma ~15 years ago. What a variety of levels! obscuritory.com/puzzle/enigma/

found a legit incredible blog about obscure electronic games. beautifully observed write-ups of tons of games i've never encountered, such as this 1988 game by an afro-caribbean woman about subvertng and overthrowing a slave plantation:

Freedom: Rebels in the Darkness
obscuritory.com/strategy/freed

or a 2500+ level puzzle game that is almost literally impossible to complete:
