War and Peace
Stephane BuraStrategy2.31 MBClick here to download

War and Peace is a one-button remake of the classic strategy game Civilization, created by Stéphane Bura as a submission for the Gamma 4 game showcase competition. The technology tree which was the highlight of the original series has been distilled down to just two branches of research, and your task is basically to choose whether to dedicate all of your resources into developing war machines or encourage the cultivation of technology advancements.

The implementation might feel simplistic at times, but there is definitely some real potential in this project if the developer decides to take it further.

Time Limit is an action game in which you step into the shoes of a student on a hurry to reach her school, giving her the excuse of hitting any passerby who stands in her away. This is achieved by using the D key to execute a standard attack, tapping the F key to use her special move when the stress meter is charged, or pressing the space key to knock practically the entire crowd all across your desktop. Dashing is possible using the S key, while the A key allows her to jump.

There are two levels in total. Note that the application takes a screenshot of your desktop to use as a background image when executed.


Bear Go Home
Phoenix SeedAction/Arcade69.9 MBClick here to download

Bear Go Home is an action game in which players are assigned the objective of helping the protagonist to find his way home. Influence his movements by stretching and squeezing him to get past obstacles, for example pulling his tail to catapult him over pits.

Items such as umbrellas and candles can be used to deflect harmful objects or illuminate your surroundings. This student project is rather short in length, and can be easily beaten in under an hour's time.

Press the left mouse button to activate your lasers, and use the P key to pause the game. Lasers will overheat after prolonged use and requires a short period of inactivity to cool down.

The Journey Down, Chapter 1: Over the Edge  
Theodor WaernAdventure122 MBClick here to download

The Journey Down, Chapter 1: Over the Edge is a point-and-click adventure game that tells the story of Bwana and his friend Kito, two individuals who run a gas station but were forced to find other means of making money when the power company threatens to cut their electrical supply off. Fortunately at about the same time a young woman arrives at your doorstep looking for a book, and she willing to reward you handsomely should you be able to help her out with an errand.

Anyone familiar with classic LucasArts games should feel right at home with the controls here. Left clicking on any interactive object examines or operates it, inventory items are located at the bottom of the screen, and moving your cursor towards the top of the window displays the options menu.

You can press the period ('.') key to skip parts of a dialogue quickly, or use the escape key to end an in-game cutscene immediately. Note that there is only one save slot to use, and you might need to fiddle with the setup.exe file a bit to get the game looking as gorgeous as the screenshots posted at the official site.
