Conveyor Worm - Puzzle game about a worm pushing and pulling.

Back at the end of April I participated in the Ludum Dare 53 Jam. I figured I’d just do a quick game over the weekend. And I did just that and the game turned out okay. Unfortunately on the last day I started feeling like I’m about to get the flu. So I did the adult thing and went to bed instead of pushing through. I did finish the game, but I never got around to making the web version and putting a real release together. It’s here now. Better late than never I guess.

Solitaire Sweeper - Minesweeper with cards

The pleasures of growing old: one gets to make minesweeper games without shame.

I made a small (and unpolished) Minesweeper variant. The game could be polished to make it more user friendly, but also I don’t know if I want to put too much more time into it. I was inspired by some of the Minesweepers Hempuli did.

Original idea was to make it work with a full deck of cards. Unfortunately 4 suits seemed like too much, so I dropped one. It was also an interesting experience to play around with the “single wrong click and you die” -mechanic. It seems somewhat under utilized way of designing puzzle games, cause usually as a designer you want the game to be forgiving.

Minesweeper meets solitaire.

Your goal is to reveal all the cards without hitting any of the mines.

  • Click on space to reveal it
  • Right click to mark a mine

If you hit a mine, it’s game over.

If the card flashes, it means there’s a mine next to it in one of 8 neighboring spaces.

The number under the card tells you how many cards of the same suit are around that card. Max 8, min 0.

There are 3 suits (hearts, diamonds, clubs) and 13 cards each.

The orthogonal spaces next to a mine are always safe. I.e. Mines may NOT be next to each other horizontally nor vertically.

Hide No Seek https://www.kloonigames.com/blog/games/hide-no-seek Tue, 10 Jan 2023 11:45:20 +0000 https://www.kloonigames.com/blog/?p=511
Hide No Seek - Single card social board game

I made a simple – maybe the simplest – board game! Its called Hide No Seek and it is available at the a print and play service The Game Crafter. Although if you want to play it you can also just print it out, or write the rules on a card with a sharpie.

The Game Crafter had a single card game design competition. You had to design a whole game with rules and everything on a single poker size playing card. I liked the challenge and ended up making a design I thought was rather obvious. As illustrated by this image of the card:

Hello! You found me! This is a GAME. And it is your turn. Hide this for someone else to find.


You can download the print and play files from here.

It has been a long and rewarding journey to get Noita to this point. I’m really excited to see people play the game. Even after working on Noita for way too many years, I still really enjoy playing the game. I think we have something special in our hands.

We do have a Steam page for our game. You can wishlist it there.
