History

Features

  • Potatoman Seeks the Troof: A unique and challenging potatosophical platforming adventure.
  • Bitku Beta: Create your own comics and expressions on a given theme, using randomly picked objects and backgrounds. It's hard to explain, but very fun!
  • Dino Run SE: An expanded and improved version of one of the original runners, before runners were all the rage. It's multiplayer as well! Take that, non-multiplayer runners...
  • Marathon of Doom: An epic dino run challenge.
  • Snowball: A winter-themed pinball advnenture. Reasonably cute and fun.
  • Pixeljams Volume 1: A collection of electronic and chip music from the Pixeljam Team, featuring Datassette, Miles Tilmann, Mark DeNardo, Dosh and Kate Simko.
  • Potatoman Soundtrack: All the music from the game, plus 2 bonus tracks. The guy who supplied Darth Maul's voice in Star Wars confirmed that this is a good one.
  • Planeteri: An album of deep ambient music by Miles Tilmann, with a unique visualization for each track. Sort of like a highly pixelated lava lamp. Did that make it sound lame? Forget we said that. It's very pretty and relaxing, if you are into that sort of thing.
