These games were made mostly for game jams, where you have to make a game over a short period of time on a particular theme. I love game jams and think they're an amazing way to learn new skills and meet new people, I wrote a blog post about my love of game jams and even went to Sweden last year to take part in one

If you're looking to get into game design, I suggest downloading the free version of Construct 2 and taking part in a game jam or two. You'll be able to make something which doesn't have to be completely polished and get feedback from other jammers.

Indie Game Jams lists dozens of them that take place online and I publish a fortnightly list of upcoming jams that are a bit alternative and interesting.
