Berlin Surveillance Camera Rampage

CAMOVER. My new favorite game.

The game is real-life Grand Theft Auto for those tired of being watched by the authorities in Berlin; points are awarded for the number of cameras destroyed and bonus scores are given for particularly imaginative modes of destruction. Axes, ropes and pitchforks are all encouraged.

FAQ in English. (With great logos.)

My New Coffee Break Game

A free demo with the first few levels is available here.
To get it to run under Ubuntu 12.10, I needed to fetch a couple of libraries:
$ sudo apt-get install liblua5.2-0 libglee0d1
Also, running the game in windowed mode requires an undocumented command-line switch.
$ ./teleglitch32 -w
I also recommend FTL.
Incidentally, the field-of-vision system in Teleglitch is a good illustration of the isovist concept from space syntax analysis.
