This weeks Webgame Wednesday comes from Eyezmaze and is the latest in the wonderfully enjoyable, slightly surreal, Grow games. Grow Island.

This time the game is based on an island (hence the name) and was made as an introduction to the Shibaura Institute of Technology.

I think it’s a great way to introduce a college course ad wish more universities and colleges were as creative in their marketing. I certainly can’t think of any courses that have created as much buzz as this one have, especially in such a short time.

As with all of the Eyemaze Grow games, the wonderful stylised graphics, and the sense of happiness pervade. It doesn’t matter if you win or lose. You’ll feel good at the end.

Check out the teaser below – I’ve completed it. Can you?

I considered posting the solution but feel that it’s the journey that’s important, so try it, and then I’ll post the walkthrough in the comments in a few days.

  1. Yep, completed. Likewise i won’t post any hints as you are spot on, it’s the fun of the journey that counts rather then just “getting to the end”.

    Good little game, i can see why this one created a bit of Buzz.

    Also i wasn’t real familiar with EyeMaze’s games, so i went to the site and they have a couple of other good one’s there worth checking out.

    Carly,
