Free Digital Eel Games

This Shrapnel Games Page is the location of three titles from independent developer Digital Eel that have all been released for free. These offerings consist of the squirmy arcade game Plasmaworm, Big Box of Blox (described as "Tetris on acid"), and double-IGF award-winner Dr. Blob's Organism, with the latter two available for Macintosh, as well as Windows. Further details on all three games can be found on the Digital Eel Website.

Digital Eel rock. Plasmaworm is trippy, but very simple, and lacks the graphical polish of their subsequent games. DBO is still a simple game, but swisher (not to mention squishier and squelchier), and one of the most entertaining uses of Conway's game of Life that I've seen. BBoB I've not played yet, but IIRC it has several different gameplay modes with plenty of variety, so it should hold the attention for a while. Pretty sweet deal for the price!

"Weird Worlds" is their best game, and very highly recommended if exploring the galaxy in about 15-30 minutes strikes your fancy The random factor has caused me to spend more time playing WW (and its predecessor) than a great many full-priced big-name productions.

(and if you're into board games, they're currently working on a fast-paced table-top game based on Weird Worlds called "Eat Electric Death")
