1. Samsara room by Studio Maarten
A surreal escape the room game in which you try to find enlightenment, bringing something fresh and unique to the escape the room game genre, it's my personal number 1 browser game of 2013! (original post) (Should you happen to know who's behing Studio Maarten, do let me know! Because I can't find any contact info about them :) Not in their games, not on the internet).
UPDATE: I've been in contact with Maarten! He doesn't have a page or twitter, only a youtube-channel. He was nicely surprised to be on top of this list and promises more games in this style in 2014!
That's it for my personal favourites of 2013. What were yours? Feel free to add your own top 3, 10, 1000 in the comments below!
2013 was also a productive bontegames year with 3 new games that hit your browsers:
Off to work we go, Me and the key 3 and A Bonte Christmas
and two new games hittting your iOS and Android devices:
Factory Balls and Furiosity.
I hope you enjoyed this list and I'm wishing you a merry Christmas and a very very happy happy 2014 with lots of new games!

Here are some highlights of press attention the app already received: Indie game magazine reviewed Furiosity and rewarded it with a score of 85. Super Game Droid reviewed the app and called it a surefire hit and unique puzzler. Appstore Arcade called Furiosity a very intriguing indie puzzler. Furiosity was also reviewed on JayIsGames and the App Spy, and it was mobile pick on indiegames.com.
Some other bonte news: for the moment I'm busy making my usual Christmas game, ho ho ho! Expect a brand new free browser puzzle game, not a sequel to one of my games, but something new... so see you soon with a new bontegame!
Oh, one more thing, if you bought the Furiosity app and liked it, please please please please take a moment to leave a rating and/or review in the appstore! It would mean a lot to me! Thanks!
