You’re a naked man riding a tricycle through a dystopian ice-age trying not to freeze his **** off in:
Icycle by Dampgnat (2009)
Creative idea, simple visuals, smooth gameplay, plus an awesome pun to boot; Icycle provides the most random and entertaining of adventures. After being thawed from cryogenic storage, you and your trusty tricycle follow a trail of frozen soap bubbles through a wasteland of frozen landscapes and unstable ground.
What really gives this game style are the charming settings you trike past. From fractured, spiraling icebergs to a frozen metropolis, each stage presents a unique set of challenges and aesthetic pleasures. Your quest to collect the frozen bubbles gives your journey a sense of purpose, albeit a trivial one. Moderately difficult platforming challenges try to prevent you from achieving perfect levels, but it’s really all about the visuals.
Suff-ice to say, Icycle is a pretty chill game that you should definitely try.
