Sokpop Collective is a little group of game designers in the Netherlands, and they’ve been doing what amounts to a private, rolling game jam for the past two years. Every month, they create two new games and give them to their Patreon subscribers through itch.io. Now, they’ve gone and published all 52 of their games on Steam. Given that the production timeline for each of Sokpop’s games is two weeks, it’s understandable that these are mostly small, constrained experiences. But what’s striking about the collection is how diverse it is: there’s a card game about being a god called Simmiland, a bird survival game (Rook), a weird little Metroidvania, and even a Soulslike RPG (also about a bird). Two of them are classified as MMOs. Sokpop has a distinctive aesthetic, but the studio changes things up enough that every game also feels unique and different. Some of the games are more like toyboxes, while others feel surprisingly fully-featured. Almost all of them are lighthearted and funny, and the animation generally has a pleasant wobble to it that reminds me of Klasky Csupo cartoons from the 1990s.
