I was recently looking at games available on the Mac App Store and my favorite discovery so far is Sailboat Championship.
The game lets you control a small sailboat using simple controls. It's fast and fun. It's also hard, which lets you appreciate your improvement, including racing against a "ghost" view of your previous run.
It's also available for iPhones, so find it in either app store.
I've been staying up late nights this week captivated by the computer game Aquaria. It's a thoroughly enjoyable underwater adventure game, with an immersive world of different environments, delightful art, fitting musics, and a fun storyline. It reminded me of classic Zelda games in many respects, with its own unique aspects.
Highly recommended, it's available to download for Mac and PC (and maybe Linux).
The computer game I've been working on for the past 2 years has just been released. It's called Castle Vox and I encourage you to check it out.
The gameplay is a simultaneous-turn-based strategy model. So you don't have to wait for all the other players to take their turns, you're always taking your turn (except in-between rounds when the battle resolutions happen).
Here's a screenshot of the Napoleonic Wars map:
The full version has 35 maps and counting. The game includes a map editor so you can make your own, or edit the existing ones.
Zoetermeer is a city (pop. 119,000) near The Hague and Rotterdam. On the city council website are Zoetermeer-themed computer games. One is a sort of SimZoetermeer, like SimCity except that the city grows according to the history of Zoetermeer from 1960 (when the town had only 6,000 people) to today. The other is Castle Zoetermeer. I haven't tried that one yet.
I think that all city council websites should have video games.
