I haven’t played much of it yet (since I’m procrastinating from studying and need to get back to it) but I just wanted to point out how visually stunning this game, Voxatron that is included in the Humble Indie Bundle (2 days left!). The aesthetics are certainly what makes this game. So far there isn’t anything very unique about the gameplay, it’s certainly fun, but that’s not what makes this game stand out.
There’s something really satisfying about seeing the environment around you actually being affected by your battles by slowly being destroyed. This is probably the most detailed environment damage I’ve seen in a game (granted it’s a stylized aesthetic as opposed to realistic graphics, however that’s precisely why they were able to make it work)
