Expand Explore Expatiate (EXP3) is a simple top-down exploration game, using the arrow keys for movement. Red things allow you to take control of larger objects, while purple things kick you down another size. Get to the goal in the upper left corner to win!

Short and quite interesting. The gameplay is interesting but nothing participially special is done with it. The basic idea is you explore an environment on three different sizes. First as a person inside, then in a big robot outside, and finally controlling huge sections of the city. You go back and forth between these states as you make your way to your destination. The best part of the entire game is its graphics, which are a great minimalists sci-fi style.
