Back in the early days of this web log, I wrote a short series of articles about “awesome” game ideas, as distinct from “good” game ideas. One of the three game concepts I put forward in that series was this: “A platform game where the player may drastically grow and shrink at will.”
Well, imagine my surprise to find that somebody’s independently designed and implemented a prototype of that game! (Warning: requires the Unity browser plug-in) I’m thrilled to see how well the concept works in practice, and doubly-thrilled that I didn’t have to build it myself, to get that validation. :)
I wish there were more levels and more polish, but as a proof of concept, I think it really, really works.
