LOL U dumas. Eversion has ben out for years and Nightsky had been out sense 2011.
Shutup me! I know that you nimrod.
These are not new games and in the case of Eversion the free version has been out sense 08. So why am I talking about these? Lately they have been all I have been playing. I purchased Nightsky during the Steam Summer Sale and I got Eversion "HD" version when I really shouldn't have but I was depressed about not being able to find a job I still haven't found. As I said lately they are all I've been playing and why they have been all I've been playing is a good topic.
I'll start with Eversion.
If you don't know what Eversion is get out from under that rock! For those who live under rocks: Everson is a retro Mario style platformer developed by
It starts out cute and happy, the goombas are smiling, the gem boxes are smiling then you press X to evert and the goombas are no longer smiling, the gem boxes are not smiling as big, if your playing the HD version the background changes from mountains and clouds to a construct that looks like mountains and clouds, it gets worse from there.
Eversion is a horror game, not in the Silent Hill, Resident Evil, Amnesia sense. It is more an unsettling game, it's more paranoia fuel. The world you know is fake, all the happy people are not happy, the world is secretly evil and is out to get you. It takes the dark world approach like Zelda 3 and Silent Hill but extends it for 8 worlds starting cute and happy then going to depressing, then nightmarish.
It's not perfect. It's short and it doesn't take full advantage of the world switching theme but for what it is it is very good. If you never tried it I suggest you try it.
The HD version Steam, if you don't have five bucks to spare you can still get the free version but I really do suggest the HD version.
Nightsky is a 2d physics puzzle game developed by
In Nightsky you play as a black ball rolling through 121 levels in 11 worlds. In the levels you have to solve physics puzzles and control vehicles. Each level is split into three screens, you start on the first and have to get to the end of the third. The puzzles are not frustratingly hard, most are intuitive and logical (well they're physics puzzles).
The graphics are mostly silhouette graphics. Despite mostly being silhouettes the graphics are beautiful.
Night sky is available at
Why out of all the games I have am I playing these so much? Out of all the games I have it is these two which have kept my interest. I have a bunch of free games (or maybe had, I went through my system getting rid of a bunch of stuff), I got a bunch of games during the Steam Summer Sale, I have a bunch of old games (for now, I plan on selling them to a retro game store) but these two are what I keep coming back to lately. They're not complex, they're not he greatest but there's something about them that keeps me coming back. Why? I don't know. I keep thinking about it trying to come up with an answer, I wanted to have an answer for the end of the post. I guess they are just good.
