MMOCG

on April 17, 2015

Massively multiplayer online crowdsourced games (MMOCGs) are very smart. I’m not sure of their specific history, but one of the first to become well known was Twitch Plays Pokemon. Another popular and innovative game that is currently ongoing is The Button. A cardinal feature of MMOCGs is the complex, emergent culture that they generate.

The Katering Show is fun and different
The Wizard of Oz experiment.
Why there are 28 days in February (amazing how much amazing is all around us but we see past).
Firewatch has been smoldering for some time and hopefully will create a unique atmosphere.  The concept art is beautiful. The idea of working as a fire lookout is lovely and unfortunately, at this point, an anachronism.

We are all in the gutter, but some of us are looking at the stars.

Parallax view – imagine being able to take and then view 3D images like this by tilting your phone around. A commenter from hackernews points out that instead of guessing the parallax and faking the extra data required when converting flat images to 3D, this additional information can come from the slightly varied perspectives generated by your hand shaking as you take the photo.

DOGE2048 is based on 2048. Check out 2048 in 4D. And now a subreddit devoted to the game.

A new genre of video game!
Criteria: runs in a browser using javascript, innocuously easy entry with a steady complexity curve (usually involving some sort of counter that starts at 0), mandatory time sinks, no social or pay to win features.
The best of these surprise the player and keep her just barely constantly doing something.

An honorable mention, which doesn’t fit the browser criteria, is Little Inferno.
Updates as more good ones are made.
