13 Coolest Games You’ve Never Heard Of
Created by Kallie Plagge on
The deceptively adorable Tumbleseed tasks you, a small seed, with scaling a fearsome mountain. You have to carefully roll from side to side on a branch to ascend, avoiding monsters and holes that will send you falling down to your last checkpoint. You also have access to over 30 seed powers, like defensive thorns and health regeneration, that you can obtain from stopping at patches of soil.
Tumbleseed is all about balancing, often times literally--but you also have to manage your health, decide when to use powers, and manually plant checkpoint flags, all while not dying or falling. This unique take on a roguelike is aesthetically sweet but punishingly difficult, and its procedurally generated mountains mean it’s not about mastering a level--it’s about perfecting your skills. -- Kallie Plagge
