B*Sides 2010-2014

From 2010 to 2014 Urustar has made games, experimented, built prototypes. The B*Sides is an all-digital pack of goodies available for a very limited time. Buy it and discover a bundle of whimsical experiments.

A lot of stuff. Games, mostly. Some of them are games we did for game jams. Some are just strange little prototypes. Some other are finished games we have never released. Check the B*Sides catalogue! There are some print and play board games too! Plus, soundtracks, ebooks and fan material. It’s really the best way to show us your love. Still confused? Here’s a little trailer of the games you’ll find in the collection.
