#HumbleBundleBacklog Hack 'n' Slash
So... I'm not sure if I've mentioned but some time in the last month or so I finally got a "proper" computer... it's no beast but it's able to run the normal stuff much better and some of the better stuff pretty well... so I've been digging in to my library for games I own but haven't played.
This one is kind'of a cheat because I actually bought the bundle it came in the same week I got the new computer but I hadn't played it yet.
The basic set-up is Zelda except instead of high level stuff like a flute that controls time or a wand that controls the weather you have a sword that allows you to hack entity properties and a bomb that let's you alter the byte code of the universe.
For the most part it plays like a puzzle game... except there are at least 4 ways to beat most of the puzzles because while the game "implies" you should toggle the value of a boolean or change a string you can maybe hack the universe to change the collision footprints of the puzzle blocks or maybe alter the code that controls the movement of the blocks or maybe alter your movement speed so you can clip through the boundaries and bypass the puzzle entirely or make yourself invincible so the hazards the puzzle is trying to get you to avoid don't do any damage to you... or maybe you hack the room's init sequence to teleport you to the end boss instead of bothering with the puzzle at all... all these things are "in universe"... the hacking tools are part of the game.
Anyways... it took me 6 hours to "beat" the game and now I've spent at least a dozen more seeing how far I can bend the universe before it crashes on me.
Since you can currently get it for like $1.49 in a bundle with another game I feel perfectly happy to recommend it... sadly I don't feel like it's a "complete" enough experience to be worth the $13.37 it usually goes for but it's definitely worth 75 cents. http://store.steampowered.com/sub/53450/
(incidentally you can currently get everything that DoubleFine has on Steam for $20... that includes Broken Age and Massive Chalice which I strongly recommend and other games that people have recommended to me but that I haven't gotten around to trying http://store.steampowered.com/sub/86537/ )

Daniel Solis: What a difference color schemes make in Kigi
One of the persistent issues I have in Kigi playtesting is that players naturally want to grow branches below the implied horizon. There is
