Free Flash Game: Closure

February 5, 2009
Closure by Tyler Glaiel & Jon Schubbe
Closure is a very interesting platformer with a unique art style. The game is entirely black & white and its visuals are reminiscent of drawings on a chalkboard. The gameplay itself is pretty interesting and unique. It has the general mechanics of any platformer, but it experiments with light & dark…basically if you can see it – it exists….if you can’t see it…then you’re falling to your doom. It is certainly a novel experiment with the typical platform formula.

We ran a 24 hour contest for indie developers to get a free full page ad in our next issue. The winner is Roto Adventures (above). The ad made me smile and was humorous, so it had to be the winner. That’s a wrap on issue 3. It should be available 2/15/09.

Globulos by Globz
Globulos is an online multiplayer game featuring little gummy globs in 20 different games. The games are all turn based and are based on “pool table” type collisions and physics. The games are pretty diverse and finding a game to play against somebody takes only a few seconds. The graphics are very clean and bright and the 20 games give you a lot of variety on the “pool” mechanics and simple controls.
