Description: "A fairytale made out of play, set in an ever-changing ecosystem. Fly away through the clouds, explore a strange world and uncover the mysteries of Blueberry Garden - your presence could make all the difference."
What we say: Watch the video trailer. It's hard to resist the alluring combination of piano music and beautiful hand-drawn graphics. Too bad there's no way for us to play it right now.
Description: "CarneyVale: Showtime is a vertical ragdoll platform game for Xbox LIVE Community Games. In the game, you play as Slinky, a circus acrobat trying to rise up the ranks by performing acrobatic tricks and death-defying stunts through increasingly complex arenas."
What we say: One of the most polished, "ready for retail" Community Games offerings, it's a fast and fun mix of PixelJunk Eden and pinball, wrapped in a vibrant, charming art style all its own.
Description: "Dyson is an ambient real-time strategy game with abstract visuals.Remotely command semi-autonomous self-replicating mining machines to take over an entire asteroid belt."
What we say: It's amazing to think this game was built in only a month. It's an incredibly slow, relaxing game. Well, that is ... until enemies start attacking. It's certainly not the deepest strategy game we've ever played, but the minimalist approach makes it accessible to all.
Description: "Designed by Nicklas Nygren, Night Game is an action-puzzle game that focuses on providing players with an ambient gameplay experience, challenging the mind with increasingly challenging picturesque worlds. Each level is broken into different areas in which the player must maneuver a ball and using realistic physics to advance through each level. There are no enemies, per se, and no violence in Night Game."
What we say: Unfortunately, there's no publicly playable version available yet. However, with a planned release on WiiWare, we're keeping an eye out on this one.
Description: "Enter the ambient world of Osmos. Experience elegant, physics-based gameplay, dreamlike visuals, and a minimalist, electro-acoustic soundtrack.Your objective is to grow by absorbing other motes. Propel yourself by ejecting matter behind you. But be wise: ejecting matter also shrinks you. Relax... good things come to those who wait."
What we say: It's an intentionally slow game that really rewards players that continue playing. You play a star, and your job is to eat other smaller stars. As celestial bodies bounce around, other stars also collide into each other -- becoming threats to your existence. It's incredibly satisfying to become the largest object in the galaxy, and it's terrifying when you see a small cluster of stars grow into a massive behemoth that can easily swallow you whole. You should definitely download the demo (PC only).
