Webgame Wednesday: Looming

By Devin D. O’Leary [ Wed Jul 7 2010 1:31 PM ]

Looming transports you to a whole other world. In this mysterious and moody puzzle/exploration game, you must traverse the simple, black-and-white terrain of an alien planet. By gathering archeological remnants, you piece together the story of what happened to this once peaceful realm. The game is arty and contemplative, and you can drop in and out using the glowing portals on the playing field. So you don't have to solve it all at once. Bonus points for the old-school graphics, which look like they were programmed on an Apple IIe. (All that's missing is the sickly green hue.)
