Inklings [Steam, Official Site] is an indie lemmings-style puzzle game with simple visuals, guide your Inklings to safety! This game comes from a family team of developers.

The developer told me that himself and his brother developed it, while their mother had a hand at the level paintings.

I've tested it out for a bit, as the developer sent in a key and I haven't come across any problems. It's quite a nice game, but it is rather simplistic visually.

It's not really hard at the start, but as usual looks are utterly deceptive here. The later levels do of course get more and more challenging, even some of the earlier levels had me stumped for a while.

It is quite relaxing with the ambient music and it's fun to see more developers try a lemmings-like approach as I adored that game on the Amiga when I was a young lad.

Check it out if you like a challenge. Article taken from GamingOnLinux.com.

If there's a developer out there that feels like updating the official Lemmings for the 21st century they'd have my money in a heartbeat, I'll be grabbing inklings asap though.

It didn't appeal to me, but maybe you would like Flockers?

Tbh, I still prefer Pingus.

+1 for Pingus; it's a pretty close clone of Lemmings, with little penguins, of course.

You know what this reminds me of? World of Goo. World of Goo beat the wave of small games. If World of Goo came out now, I wouldn't want it. But back then, it was super neat. Of course, I'm only speaking for myself. There are a lot of games these days. I can't play all the good ones, let alone all of them period.

I probably wouldn't buy it from sight now, but it would be still worth it I think.
BTW, this is what I'm using steam reviews for: If a game got over 90 or even over 95, I take a second look.
World of Goo has 93%.
