A collection of 9 bite-sized games the developers did for Game Jams and a tenth full game exclusive to this collection. All of them paired with a 10-15 minute video of the devs talking about each project. A really interesting piece of insight of the development process and the evolution of small development teams. The games themselves are kinda cool, specially the ones in which the devs explore the narrative options that are only possible in videogames as a medium, my favorite ones being 11.45 A Vivid Life and Eternal Home Floristry.
If you are somehow interested in small indie games, game development in general or narrative experiments, check this out. One of the most interesting pieces of not-only-game media of the videogame industry.


de tres al cuarto is really good. a lot of fun to play this simple card game, a touching story, shots framed well. best work of theirs yet i think.
