Games This Month

A promotional image for 1-1(bit)

1-1(bit)

Dying is Feedback. Death is information. 1-1(bit) is a puzzle platformer made in Pulp for the Playdate. The platforms are invisible and the player builds a mental map of the level layout through traversal and observation... but is there more to the game than a grid of dots? You must be dreaming.
Players Can reveal the level using the B menu. Players also tend Not to do that.

Inspiration This game was inspired by a similar project shown at Fantastic Arcade. It was a beautiful wooden arcade wall mount that consisted of a joystick and a single, vertical strip of red LEDs. As you navigated the level you 'viewed' it 1-pixel slice at a time by observing your dot's position.

Ledbetter Games has been making and showing Playdate games in Austin, Tx for the last couple years. They created the ART series, CHEK for 2-4 players and are very much looking forward to seeing you play 1-1(bit) Off-Planet Dreams and perhaps creating a level or two of your own!

Comic Book Boom!

In Comic Book Boom!, you play as a comics publisher at the height of the industry’s wildest era: The bombastic 1990’s. To score big in this booming market, you’ll need to...

• Publish books with the hottest ’90s themes
• Hype up readers with outrageous stunts
• Dazzle collectors with enhanced cover gimmicks

Be careful: Push the fans too far, and this boom is going to bust. Through big bets and market manipulation, you and your rival publishers might print up a fortune – or get too greedy and lose it all!
