Thanks to gateway drugs like Two Dots and Threes, I’ve become increasingly attuned to the growing world of casual, design-centric games. One node in the indie gaming scene that has particularly inspired me is Vectorpark, a.k.a. Patrick Smith. In a world where Candy Crush aesthetics have dominated, Vectorpark is a breath of fresh air.
Smith designs and develops all his own games, which also double as exploratory toys. Windowsill
, an escape-the-room game for web
, is my personal favorite. Every corner of his work exudes delight, from the tasteful art direction down to the puzzling progression. I’m really looking forward to his next app, Metamorphabet
