I’ll be sending asks to each of you asking for a steam name and the desired games. To iterate once again, first place gets to pick first, then second, then third.
P.S. If I do not hear from one of the victors within the next 48 hours, they forfeit the prize, and a new winner will be selected.

Thanks for the support! New games will be posted bi-weekly, so stay tuned!
Also, I got a little surprise in store. Just wait!
Freeware Developer Spotlight: Terry Cavanagh
Terry Cavanagh is an indie game developer based in Cambridge, England. His more recent popular games include VVVVVV and Super Hexagon. But beyond his games that he sells, lies the games that he has made for anyone to play for free.
Cavanagh serves as a constant reminder to me that games are always more about aesthetics than graphics. Each game encapsulates a look that sets you up for just what you are going to play. The mechanics, colors, and general game play synchronize so perfectly, I absolutely love it. These games accomplish this without any high resolution images, usually focusing on low-bit assets.
One other theme I see a lot of in his games is deeper meaning. Each game has a mysterious way of making the player think. I love this effect, especially in Cavanagh’s games, because they each deliver a different message. Any game makes me stop and think profoundly is a grade “A” game in my book.
I wish there were more game developers out there like this guy. Don’t get me wrong, I love what the majority of game developers do as well. But Cavanagh’s games deliver equal, if not more profound experiences than most games, with less flash and more meaning and thought, and in a relatively short amount of time. My next three games I feature will be my favorites from Cavanagh, and I will go into more depth as to why I love them so much.
