111 - JS13k

This week, we do something a little bit different: instead of surveying one game, we look at a cluster of games from the Javascript 13K game development competition. All these designers completed the impressive technical challenge of designing a game that is under 13kb when zipped. There are racing games, top-down melee games, twists on classic games like Asteroid and Tic-Tac-Toe, and a clicker game that we both fell in love with. We talk a bit about the relationship between technical limitations and creativity.
