The last humble bundle had a game called Expand. It was minimalist, where you play as a square, and you travel through geometry. Very simple art, sublime music, and great design. I highly recommend it. It took me 2.5 hours to finish, according to Steam, so it won’t take you away from your AAA backlog for too long and it’s worth it.
I really love this approach to art design so much better than pixel art. Just plain lines and smooth curves and start contrasting colors. Lovely.
I noticed a Double Fine-published game also just came out last week with a similar art style called 140. Has anyone tried that one. It’s only $8, so I’m very tempted.
