Thanks L and Sergio for

Thanks L and Sergio for prompting this. It reveals some stuff about trends in my games I didn't know. I'm actually a little surprised at how nonviolent the goals of my games tend to be (especially now). I'm also noticing how recurrent a lot of my core game design ideas and fixations have been over the last 15 years. I also have a recent fondness for hyper-literal titles.

It also got me to play my only finished Megazeux game ever after finding it on digitalmzx.net.

Nice... I'm happy to see it

Nice... I'm happy to see it looks like you're making more games every year! Discovering recurring ideas was one of the more interesting things about going through my own games, too. I didn't realise I'd made two "die to prevent time paradox" games... and I'm working on a third at the moment.
