Needlework? Voyager mission? Stop-motion? Voyager for iOS is absolute whimsy.

Founder of one-man shop Oh My! Me Studios and creator of "hand-crafted video games," Ken Amarit sent us a note about his new iOS title Voyager. If you were looking for a reason to reach-out to your grandmother, this would be it. Amarit used a needle and wool to construct the game's elements and then filmed the objects with stop-motion animation to create, hands down, one of the cutest titles I've seen. This is basically from a skit in Portlandia. Our whimsy meter is off-the-charts.

This is the game that will warm the Grinch-like heart of ours, calcified from years of terrible, terrible shooters and social games.
