- Gabe Newell: Reflections of a Video Game Maker
- Folding Space-Time – Vi Hart
- The Break Room Interviews: Jonathan Blow – Really like Mr Blow and what he does, but man is he prolix.
- The Reward
- “He Was a Sweet Man”
- Adam and Dog
- The Vein/Magma
- The History of Typography
- Crater Face
- Requiem for Romance
- Cicada Princess
- UFFIE – Difficult
- Sparkles and Wine
- Ice Crystal Timelapse
- Slow Life
- A rather lovely thing
- Cosmic Flower
- Out of the Black
- New Topia
