Now and then a Game Jam entry comes along that's simply wonderful and the latest discovery is Townseek, a game about flying a shark around the world.

"Born undersea, but with an appetite to soar the skies and explore the world! Now that you've got yourself a reliable airship, it's time to make those dreams come true! Travel far and wide, discovering the exotic landmarks that the world has to offer! Meet the locals from towns far away from each other! Engage in the old tradition of exchanging goods for money! Fish like sharkfolk have never fished before!"

Completely absurd of course, but the whole idea and the presentation is simply marvellous. Created for the Global Game Jam 2021 and made in Unity, there's a nice Linux build available to try out on It's free too but you can also donate to the developer.

"Whalesale Games" alone made me chuckle. Gaming company names are the best
