Rain Projects

A brilliant, minimalistic smartphone game. No images, no music, no animation. Just riddles in plain text. (If you, like me, are not really into Star Wars, keep that in mind when you get stuck for the first time).

Cards Against Originality

Self-proclaimed «party game for horrible people» Cards Against Humanity has probably provided me with the hardest laughs of 2014.
