Over the coming week or so we will be covering as many of these indie games as we possibly can, we hope those of you not attending the conference will stick around and check them out here on CIG!
Despite a couple of minor flaws, ibb & obb is a joy to behold, and is fantastic fun when played as it was intended to be.
If you consider yourself someone who supports indie developers and own Gun Monkeys, consider taking some time out to play it. If you run a gaming community, perhaps add it to your rota of games. If you don’t already own it, well, get out there and buy it, get some friends to buy it and have some gun-toting, simian-searing, energy-collecting, one-on-one fun!
Might and Delight took a chance on a fresh idea; more than anything, good game or bad, that should be commended.
However, if you are a female between the ages of 14-20, and you are considering your best friend as your first potential scissor buddy, then this is the title for you. Talk about a niche market.
The original idea for the game was intended as a joke. This joke saw a lot of attention and eventually a kickstarter was made, fuelling the game we see here today.
…I’m not saying Tetris isn’t fun anymore but I long for something new and exciting. Recently, QbQbQb has scratched that itch.
Space Hulk is set in the Warhammer 40k universe. 40k is set in the far future where mankind has settled a large portion of the galaxy under the banner of the God-Emperor. The God-Emperor sits upon his Golden Throne above the pillars known as the Space Marines – Elite units of the Imperium of Man. Space Marines are split into Chapters, which were founded by the Primarchs. Each Chapter has a home planet. The events of Space Hulk take place near Baal, the home planet of the Blood Angels.
Vintage Hero is a fantastic ride with enough unique additions that it occasionally surpasses the series it shamelessly emulates. Capcom would do well to take notes.
In Jelly Jiggle, you play a cube of Jelly called “Jay”. Your goal is to work your way around puzzles and to the goal in 50 different levels across 3 different environments. If the puzzles get too hard, you can purchase items using Jelly Coins. These can be collected in-game or purchased.
