Indie Game Notice: Gunpoint

Posted by Ben Huber on Jun 9, 2013 in Videogames

gunpoint

Every once in a while I simply have to recommend a new indie game. Especially since the market is flourishing so much right now. Gunpoint is a new release from Suspicious Developments, and it’s a great take on the stealth genre. Mainly because you can rewire all the electronics in the game to do your bidding. Want to make a light turn off as the elevator arrives? Or even have a guard’s gun malfunction and trigger a trap door? There’s tons of room for creativity and it’s all wrapped up in wonderful pixel art and a stylish soundtrack. And it also has a level editor. You can also tackle guards to the ground and punch them – and at no point are you required to stop. Check out the trailer below and then pick it up on Steam! Read more…

Cube World Update: Looking Good!

Posted by Ben Huber on May 13, 2013 in Videogames

cubeworld

A while ago I posted a short video of Cube World, a game being made by indie game designer Wollay. Combining the cute blocky graphics of Minecraft along with the exploration and levelling of an RPG, it looks to be doing a good deal more than the typical Minecraft imitator. Instead he looks to be doing his own thing, and this new video shows off the classes, world, skill trees, and crafting. I love the bright and vivid colors in the world too – it makes it really stand out. Hopefully a public beta test will begin soon, because I’m really interested in getting my hands on it. Read more…

Guacamelee! Dated, Priced, And Trailered

Posted by Bob Muir on Mar 27, 2013 in Videogames

Guacamelee!

Guacamelee! is a Mexican-themed Metroidvania/brawler, which is a weird, yet delightful mix of ideas. The game has been in development for a while on PS3 and PlayStation Vita, but now it is finally coming out next month. Even better, buying the game once gets you a copy on both platforms thanks to Sony’s Cross-Buy system! Read more…

Play This Game: Antichamber

Posted by Ben Huber on Feb 3, 2013 in Videogames

antichamber

Looking for something to bend your brain? A game that will challenge your skills of perception? Anything that allows you to use the phrase “non-euclidean” in a normal sentence? Then Antichamber is the game for you! It’s been in development for quite some time, but now it is finally out for PC on Steam. Simply put, Antichamber is a puzzle game, but in reality it’s much more complex. Physics mean nothing, and in an impressive bending of game logic and programming, Antichamber creates crazy game worlds that defy traditional thinking. It’s really clever, and in example, sometimes the way to solve a puzzle is to not look at it. Just a hint. Watch a trailer below or check out the game on Steam! Read more…

StarForge Continues to Grow

Posted by Ben Huber on Nov 4, 2012 in Fandom, Videogames

starforge

One of the most impressive-looking indie games on the radar right now is StarForge. Combining the building of Minecraft with the guns of Borderlands and a heavy dose of random terrain generation, the three-man team looks to be doing a great job tackling the (seemingly) huge job. They’ve started an Indiegogo campaign to help them finish the game, and already have gotten a solid amount of money for the project. I love this era of indie creativity and uniqueness. Although there’s always going to be a few bad apples, the outstanding games more than make up for it. I hope StarForge fulfills their goals! Watch the trailer below. Read more…

Team Meat Announces New Game: Mew-Genics!

Posted by Ben Huber on Oct 21, 2012 in Videogames

Super Meat Boy was one of the biggest indie hits in a long time, and coming from just two guys, it’s pretty impressive. The duo (Edmund McMillen & Tommy Refenes) was also featured in Indie Game: The Movie and gave an inside look into their work on the project. Now, they’re working on a new Super Meat Boy for iOS and PC, and have just announced their next game: Mew-Genics! (Exclamation point included.) There’s not too many details about the game yet, but they describe it as a game that’s “randomly generated, strange and involving cats.” Seems unique! And I’m up for whatever Team Meat creates next!

Take An In-Depth Look At Star Command

Posted by Ben Huber on Oct 19, 2012 in Videogames

starcommand

Ever wanted to be a commander of your own ship? The guys at Warballoon do, and that’s why they’re making Star Command, a new game for iOS, Android, PC, and Mac. They’ve posted a video recently, showing off them playing through a few missions in the game, managing their ship and battling against invaders. It has a cute artstyle, and reminds me a little bit of Game Dev Story. The game will apparently be coming out “when it kicks ass,” which seems to be a good indicator for any game’s development. Man, is it just me or are there way more space and spaceship sim games popping up suddenly? Read more…

Cube World Is Shaping Up Pretty Well!

Posted by Ben Huber on Feb 5, 2012 in Videogames

cubeworld

With the success of Minecraft, it appears a whole new sub-genre of games has sprouted up: cube/pixel based worlds. Terraria took on the 2D aspect of this, Brick Force is focusing on guns and combat, and Cube World is dropping you into the RPG side of things – a bit like if Minecraft fell into a melting pit and emerged as a cubic, sword-wielding monster with better shadows and draw distance and then someone sprinkled some Zelda on top. A fan recently created a trailer for the game (which will hopefully be arriving soon) to show off how the game is coming, and it looks great! Read more…
