Yay for the Neverhood :D I backed Armikrog before I even finished reading the Kickstarter page!

Old games such as Atari Breakout, Namco Pac-Man and Nintendo Tetris. I'm also inspired with old PC games such as PopCap Bejeweled, GameHouse Collapse, and Raptisoft Chuzzle.

And also, Rovio Angry Birds, EA Boom Blox, Munkado Bouncy Mouse and Halfbrick Fruit Ninja.

this is my first post and i am just starting development on an idea but i'm not ready to let it into the interwebs of the universe yet. But can anyone remember a game where you are a stic man running around collecting lollipops? its poorly done but highly addicting you also have trampolines to get on a sky scraper and in the first level if you go left there's a bus that i for the life of my could not get on top of it even if jumping from the sky scraper. this is the game that inspired me to be a gamer and developer.

In order of impact on my desire to develop games:

- Morrowind
- Freelancer
- Elite
- Diablo I

See if you can guess which element/s of these games I've been influenced by, :).

There are so many games that inspire me - some for their graphics, some for their sound, some for their easy casual pick-up-and-play style etc...

Of late, some of the coolest graphics I've seen design-wise, are:

Back to Bed
- Cool 3D graphics in a surreal Dali-inspired setting.

Little Big Planet 1+2
- Not really new games, but it's so inspiring just opening them and playing through a few levels. There's also some extremely nice game mechanics, and everything is balanced so perfectly neat; from the controls/steering to the level difficulties.

Limbo
- So cool; extremely creative 2D-platformer style. Really shows a great alternative the more classic approach with pixel-graphics, and that many colors are not always needed.

I love 2D platformers more than pretty much anything. Mega Man, Castlevania, Metroid, more recent titles like Guacamelee, Moon Diver...heck, I'm even a huge Terraria fan. Those are the kinds of games I want to make...but with my own characters.
