So, tomorrow is Friday. Not just any Friday, it's Good Friday. So does this make it average Thursday? No! It makes it Fantastic Early Weekend Thursday. So, what indie gaming news do you need to know about before the weekend?
So which big box PC game is gathering dust on your shelf? I’ve got a couple, but one of the odder titles that I purchased in my wilder years, had to be outcast. A game that pushed my mighty Pentium II 400 Mhz PC to the bleeding edge. And it’s making a comeback.
I went to the Make Games SA meet up last night in Joburg. It was a smaller turnout than normal, in a ridiculously freezing room, but it was all worthwhile because I saw a trailer that made me really psyched about a local game. I've already supported it on Greenlight, and after payday I'll be throwing money at their Kickstarter. You should, too.
I'm back, baby! I've successfully returned from LA and I'm ready to dive back into the indie gaming action. Of course, any diving would be a lot easier if this congestion would go away. I seem to have returned to SA with the plague, but that won't stop me from telling you all the awesome indie news you might have missed.
I’ve mentioned before in my ramblings that I enjoy big open worlds to explore. Planets³ is a Kickstarter project wanting to create the ultimate voxel-based, procedurally generated open world.
At the end of last year, Chris Bischoff made major indie news when his game, Stasis, made $132,523 on Kickstarter and got Greenlit. He and his brother Nic are awesome local guys, and they've released a video update for the game. I like watching it for the part when Chris is nearly unable to eat a sweetie.
Oh yes, it's that time of the week again. Time to revel in indie news, and the fact that the weekend is almost upon us. The sun also came out for a little while today, so I think things are starting to look up. Maybe.
Despite raising an exorbitant amount of money through Kickstarter, Tim Schafer's Double Fine needed more funds to make Broken Age. This is mostly because the scope of the project just kept growing. They decided to release the first part in order to fund the second - and they have enough funding to complete the project.
A Kickstarter campaign has been launched for GaymerX2 2014; a LGBTQ gamer friendly convention where issues within the community are discussed, while also having all the fun convention stuff.
I've been thinking a lot about betas recently. It started when I played the beta for FFXIV: A Realm Reborn, but it's come back after previewing The Elder Scrolls Online and preparing to play the Titanfall beta. I have certain expectations for Betas - do you have the same?
Tomorrow is Valentine's Day, guys. Time to get some flowers and chocolates. Or, if you're like me, nothing! That's right, I don't celebrate V-day. Wait, does that make me even more hipster? Anyway, here's the indie news from the week, all in one place.
Oh look, a place for me to ramble about what I've been up to, or the fact that the week has gone too fast. Nah, I'll just tell you all that there's some cool indie news from this past week that you should read about.
If you’re as a big a fan of good ol’ JRPGs with a tactical side to them as Zoe is, then you’re most likely also crying yourself to sleep every night about the fact that those specific games are quite rare, like a restaurant that actually gives me a well-done steak with scorch marks dammit. But hope is on the horizon, as one veteran of that development scene has a new game on the way.
We're back, baby! That's right, I spent my holiday gorging on food and gaming, recharging those batteries of mine so I can offer you even more excitement and enthusiasm. Also, I indulged my hipster street cred and spent most of that gaming time playing indie games. So, what's new this year (so far) in the world of indie gaming? Take a look.
Are you a lover of video games and of Christ? Well then this is the game for you. A small development studio called Phoenix Interactive Studios are heading towards Kickstarter in an attempt to raise $100 000 to deliver god's game into your hands.
