It's that time of year again, time for a new Ludum Dare and hundreds of new game jam entries. Ludum Dare 33's theme is "You are the Monster", and developers have explored the theme in myriad ways.
It's impossible to play or see every entry, but here are some that caught my eye while browsing the submissions
