Upcoming Molyjam Games

These are the Molyjam games I will be writing about soon. I recommend playing all of them. Again, you can find all the Molyjam games here.

286: When Doves Cry
279: Orphanage Arsenal
275: A Civilized World
246 Friends 'til the End
242 Phone Frag!
235 You are the Road
227 In the Dark, the Blind Can See
226 Recidivism

Molyjam playthrough update

Right now I have played up through 225. I have played (or tried to play) 50-60 games of about 250. I have a long way to go.

I said I would make notes of all of them here but I have changed my mind. For one thing, some of them are not interesting to hear about. For another, some of them are bad and I don't want to be the jerk that is saying a game made in 48 hours isn't interesting or fun.

So, I will only be writing about ones worth writing about. In the meantime, my second piece, which is the first and only exception to this rule, is up on Snackbar.

I will post more impressions later. I have another dozen or so games worth writing on and another 180 or so to play.

Onward I shall go. When I'm done, I can say I played every single one! I know Molyneux and his most recent interviewer won't have been able to say that.

Molyjam Playthrough 2012

After extensive Googling, I feel confident that about no one has personally played every single one of the Molyjam games, and even more so that no one has written about all of them. I'm going to do that. I have a feature on Snackbar I'm going to be doing on the Molyjam games, of which there are over two hundred. The series at Snackbar starts today and I encourage you to read about my experience with the very first game I played, which is still one of my favorites. Snackbar will feature the "best of Molyjam" in future posts.

But here on my blog will I will write about playing every single Molyjam game. Every single one! No matter how boring it is. I have currently played over a dozen of them. They are hit and miss, but some of them have great ideas that I am convinced could be an element of or even basis for a full retail game.

If you only want to read about the most interesting or good games, just read the Snackbar posts, which I will be linking to from here and on my Twitter account.
