Puzzle games where the world and its physics are integral parts of the gameplay, and mastering the physics model is the single greatest gift to understanding how to solve the puzzles.
Normally I have *some* idea of what a game is from the title or the art that goes with it. Some games defy even that.
QRTH-PHYL is very firmly in that category. I'm still not sure what to call it.

We're taking a look at Nimbus.

We've seen a game where the character exploding is part of the game's mechanics - it was Putty, if you remember.
But Putty exploding is nothing on today's game, Explodemon.

Today we're looking at the last of our 'New Beginnings', and to finish up the month, I thought I'd take a look at a strange little game that's a bit quirky.
Specifically, that's Eets.

Today we're taking a look at a game I picked up in one of the indie bundles - that like Ninja Garden, seems to not be really an indie game. (At least, when it made its way to Steam it was published by a separate firm.)
We're taking a look at Bad Rats - 'the Rats' Revenge'.

Today's instalment of Game-A-Day is definitely a quirky one. There actually are surprisingly few games that begin with the letter V, but we'll what this V game brings.
Without much further ado, we're looking at Vessel.

With that, today's game is Quantum Conundrum.
