Excuse me if you will dear reader, but I'm not in the greatest blogging mood. After over a million people protested against the latest brutal austerity measures two days ago, yesterday hundreds of thousands were exposed to mindless violence, political bullying, the death of one protester, police brutality, the passing of a disastrous and traitorous law, dozens of injured people and a deep (if hopefully temporary) division among the people fighting for a better future. Not much to celebrate then, despite the heroic mass mobilization of students, public and private workers, shop-owners, doctors, engineers, unemployed and -frankly- almost everyone.
Still, in a vain attempt to make everyone feel a little bit better, let me suggest you have a look at Zombie Goes Up. It's a lovely and innovative browser-based indie game by the developers of the pretty Dino Quake. It's a beautiful pixel art offering, that let's you guide a zombie from its grave to the surface, where it apparently will help with spreading the Halloween aesthetic. It also is a constantly scrolling action puzzler with great variety and well-designed levels, that does play a bit like an inverted (and way more interesting) version of my humble VVVVVV level.
