Why I love flash games...

Every once in a while I come across a something that reminds me what it is that I love about flash games, this morning I stumbled on a wonderful little platformer called Continuity: http://www.continuitygame.com. Originally developed as a student project this game is a shining example of what makes the flash games scene and flash games developers so special.
As I have often said in the past, adversity breeds creativity, and this is certainly the case in the flash games scene. Whilst the mainstream games scene busies itself with bigger-better-faster-more, flash games developers quietly struggle along - criminally underfunded, largely working for the love of it and at the same time producing work that is in my opinion far more original and creative than the dross churned out by the big studios.
So... here's to flash games and here's to the amazingly talented young developers that inspire me every day. May we all struggle along together forever!...
