Unity Awards 2008

The Unity 2008 Awards will be announced in a week (October 24th). In the meantime, you can vote on an Audience Award, for which both dock’s Tumbledrop and Flashbang’s Off-Road Velociraptor Safari are eligible. You will need a Unity forums account to vote. Voting ends on Monday.

And I’d be remiss if I didn’t mention that there’s also a game called Sperm Racer in the competition.

Tumbledrop (Beta)

In dock’s Tumbledrop, the goal of each level is to drop the pink star onto the island by pulling out the pieces from underneath it, one by one. It’s a simple and fun game that benefits from having a sharp design aesthetic (dock did character art for the WiiWare platformer LostWinds). If you want to see conceptual work for Tumbledrop, check out his development blog.

Definitely one of the few puzzle games I’ve played where I actually enjoy the anthropomorphic pieces. I’m hoping that if I play Tumbledrop a hundred more times then the Snood creatures will finally stop visiting me in my nightmares. I swear to God, if anything is slumbering in the dead city of R’lyeh, it’s those horrific beasts.

Tumbledrop is made in Unity, for the Unity Awards 2008 competition, and as such, requires the Unity browser plugin to play. It’s a very quick, and painless, installation, so I think you should just do it, okay! The full version of the game will be updated over the coming months with more levels, and medals that you can win for each stage.
