PC Pick: Glorkian Warrior (Pixeljam)

November 25, 2014 12:00 PM | Konstantinos Dimopoulos / Gnome

glorkianWa.pngTim loved the mobile version of Glorkian Warrior a few months ago, and I have to admit I too loved its brand new Windows/Mac port. The very same port you can grab by hoping over to the Glorkian Warrior: The Trials of Glork site and spending a very modest $3.99. The game offers the same, excellent and oddly platformer-influenced take on Galaga the original did, only this time everything feels more satisfying what with the bigger screens and tactile control methods involved. As for the adorable art of James Kochalka, well, it looks cuddlier and bolder than ever.

Lords of Xulima has old-school RPG inspirations and modern sensibilities

November 25, 2014 8:30 AM | Lena LeRay

LOX_CombatYotums.jpgLords of Xulima, which recently launched out of Early Access on Steam, is an isometric, turn-based RPG inspired by classics such as Ultima and Might & Magic. It's hard to point to anything that would make Lords of Xulima stand out from the crowd. However, when I started playing it, it was engaging enough for me to look at the clock and be surprised to find that almost five hours had passed since I started playing and I really should have been in bed already.

The colorful shadow puppet world of Amphora

November 24, 2014 7:50 AM | Lena LeRay

amphora_screen03.pngAmphora is a gorgeous, story-driven, physics-based puzzle game. It tells the story of a girl growing up, finding love, and the events of her family's life... all without a single word. Each puzzle is a scene, a slice of life illustrated with colorful cutouts inspired by shadow puppetry.

Zero Memory is a tiny game about expanding your memory

November 22, 2014 10:06 PM | Chloi Rad

JquRUM.gifZero Memory is like a micro version of electronic Simon Says, only with better colors.

The game takes place on a diamond-shaped board, with four points that light up in a certain order.

If you play short term memory mode, the diamonds light up in a different and increasingly more complex sequence every time you manage to copy it. In long term memory mode, you only get to see the next step of a slowly accumulating sequence, and must recreate it up to that point.

The Ember Conflict progress: reinforcements feature, specializations for units

November 22, 2014 2:20 AM | Lena LeRay

Forest_POC.jpgThe Ember Conflict is a competitive, free to play RTS currently in development for mobile platforms. IndieGames first covered the game in January, at which time developer Substantial Games shared information about how the game will work and what direction they planned to take the game. Since then, they've run an alpha test in limited regions. Based on that, they've made a couple of substantial changes (no pun intended) to the game, which is now due for release around March or April of next year.

Athletic Pick: Super Sec Soccer (kingPenguin)

November 21, 2014 4:00 AM | Konstantinos Dimopoulos / Gnome

Who needs kick offs, half-times and off-side rules? Who needs tactics and referees? Who needs shiny graphics and complicated controls? Well, many apparently, but Super Sec Soccer is a delightfully different kind of game. It's still all about the footballing, but does away with all of the sport's rules in order to achieve a hectic gameplay experience and condense all the fun in 90 brilliant seconds. 90 seconds you can use to either crush a friend in local multiplayer or the competent AI opponent.

Super Sec Soccer is available for Windows via itch.io complete with a 9 second demo. You can also support it on Greenlight.

Kickstarter Pick: Americana Dawn is Genso Suikoden meets Mark Twain

November 20, 2014 7:37 PM | Chloi Rad

Americana Dawn, inspired in equal parts by Genso Suikoden and Mark Twain, is a classic JRPG-style adventure set across two centuries of early North American history.

It's been in the works for a while now, with a previous Kickstarter from 2012 helping fund a very small portion of the game's early development.

Since then, the ambitious project has expanded well beyond the scope of what the designers originally intended. It just needs this one last chunk of support from fans to become a full game.

See the Americana Dawn's new Kickstarter here.

KakeXun: a game about math, the world, and the self

November 20, 2014 2:15 AM | Lena LeRay

kakexun.jpgKenji Eno was one of Japan's first indie developers. He's best known in the west for games such as the D series, Enemy Zero, and You, Me, & The Cubes. His games have won awards in both Japan and the U.S. and one game he created was a Sega Saturn game for the visually impaired. After Eno died of heart failure in early 2013, some of his old friends and coworkers banded together to try to make his last game design a reality. Called KakeXun (pronounced kah-keh-zoon), the game is to be a "sci-fi action art game" tying cosmology, parallel worlds, mathematics, and philosophy together in a story about sentient magma trying to understand its own existence while it works to give shape to an infant world.
