Joystiq: The Joystiq Indie Pitch: Baams Away
"With unlimited explosive action, constant introduction to new mechanics, and relentless never-ending sheep destruction, Baams Away will always leave a maniacal grin on your face."
Joystiq: The Joystiq Indie Pitch: Cellarfold
"Cellarfold is The Legend of Zelda meets Shark! Shark!."
DIY Gamer: Ludum Dare Standout Enola Looking to Become Full Horror Adventure Title
"Maybe this place is an alien planet, another dimension, or a dream. You don't know for sure, but you have to find out. Everything in Enola's story and setting is open to the players' interpretation."
Rock, Paper Shotgun: Discriminating Porridge: StarstarstarletterD
"Sophie Houlden's Blitzkast 10 submission StarstarstarletterD only skates around the edge of being a videogame, but makes up for its unabashedly basic interactivity and sub-five-minute length by wittering agreeably insane gibberish throughout."
Indie Games Channel: MacGuffin's Curse bringing adventure, puzzles, and werewolves this April
"Australian indie developer Brawsome... has revealed that its next title, a puzzle-adventure of lycanthropic proportions called MacGuffin's Curse, is 'due April 19th on Steam and the App Store soon!'"
Desura: 3079 Released
"3079 is a futuristic, open-world action first-person role playing game...Think of this game as an original game combining Fallout and Minecraft."
RGCD: Marbled (Atari XE/XL)
"The mechanics of the game are fairly simple, swapping squares around on a platform in space to allow your marble safe passage to the end square, sometimes collecting crystals on the way. The levels become head-scratchers very quickly, and I can't lie and say it's an easy game."
