@patrickklepek: Feels like it would be easiest just to drop the links to the games in the comments.

@patrickklepek: If this is part of your Worth Reading, why not just link them there still? The title heading for "Worth Playing" just turn it into a hyperlink that goes to the corresponding video.

Breaking this out as a video section was a great idea, Patrick.

I've wanted to see GWBW played for a long time.

Went and tried it out after/during this video. It's pretty amazing so far.

yea tinyurls could work for the site version, its much less to type in.

placing urls like that in videos i think is really suited for youtube cause then you can just put the link in a annotation.

also this is a really minor one, but maybe place the link in the video on the top of the video instead of the bottom. cause when you go to pause the video, the site's video player covers the link.

Man, that psychiatrist was weak shit. I guess you can call that irony, if such a label is permissible these days on the internet.

I don't know if I should be it's own feature or what but I would love it if you recorded playing some of your favorite games from the MolyJam this year.

I played Gods Will Be Watching a while back, in fact I believe it was on a recommendation you made in Worth Reading, though perhaps I'm wrong there.

That game is very interesting but once you really learn whats going on and what you need to do it becomes incredibly simple and easy. I think that this is mostly in thanks to the Robot character who can show you (without taking a turn) the moods of everyone in the group.

Once you learn that all you really need to do is check with him every day to make sure no ones mood falls below 5 or so and you're kinda golden as long as you don't make a dumb mistake like forgetting to light the fire... which I did... many times.

I'd be interested to see what they'd do with more time for that game.

Edit: Just as a heads up @patrickklepek, you don't need to do group therapy to make individuals feel better, if you just Talk to them it'll brighten their mood a bit.

Hobo Solitare looks neat but I would get way to frustrated about it.

I suggest you put links to the games and Worth Reading Article in the Youtube description and just remind people that the game links are embedded in the Worth Reading Article and Youtube description.

Thanks for putting Gods Will Be Watching on my radar, that thing is right up my alley - tossed some cash their way for the expanded concept.

Gods Will Be Watching is surprisingly tense and frustrating (in the good, makes-you-want-to-keep-trying way) and I just sank 2 hours into playing it through.

Really hard game to beat, and especially towards the end when ammo is all gone, food is constantly low, and people are losing their minds, it is nearly impossible to save everyone. I got pretty lucky finally and made it out with all parties intact (even the robot and dog). Then my character committed suicide anyway. Which was kind of a bummer.

Really liked Gods Will Be Watching, felt it seemed somehow more unique than the usual indie stuff I see featured here. Then again, I am very picky about indie games.

Talking to people in Gods Will Be Watching increases peoples mood, which is a way to keep them from going mad without using all your turns at once. Sometimes people will also give you information which will help you win the game.
