One of my favourite accounts to follow on Twitter, is one about a dark yet beautiful Strategy/RPG game, based on an unforgiving world. Developed by Hungarian indie dev Lost Pilgrims, Vagrus – The Riven Realms, looks so promising, that I added it in my 2019 Indies to Look Forward category in my Indies of 2018 article. But I wanted to know more, so I contacted the devs and had an interview.
Another year has passed, with its ups and downs. One of the downs was that, due to my mandatory army duty, I couldn’t manage to be as active as I wanted in the scene. However, I realised I managed to play more games of 2018 than I first thought I did. Also, thanks to Mary, there are several Zozoulindies of 2018 releases as well. So, without further ado, let’s get this party started!
I was scrolling on my Twitter feed, checking out news from the games I’m following. Suddenly, my eye catches a really interesting dark sketch and the mention of a Kickstarter campaign. “Intriguing”, I thought and pressed the link. Long story short, I liked the pitch so much, I pledged for the game right away and reached out to the devs for an interview. Baptiste Miny, the Art Director of the project and CEO of Ars Goetia, the French indie microcompany behind the game replied almost instantly to the various questions that popped up my head!
Are you a fan of the depiction of futuristic societies where AIs have stepped up and gotten a part in our society? How about minimalistic games where the main purpose is to discover the lore of their universes? If yes, then Subsurface Circular is a title for you.
Hello to all! A new year has come, with new things in our lives, resolutions and more upcoming games. I will use this post as an opportunity to reflect a little on the past year and inform you about some things that will happen from now on.
Another day, another interview with cool indie devs about their upcoming game. This time, I talked with Unsigned Double Collective, an indie dev based in South Africa, about Freja and the False Prophecy, a metroidvania game based in the Scandinavian mythology.
Do you like the feel of 80s films and cartoons like Rocky, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles etc? How about wanting to play a character with a tragic backstory, that is torn between everyday life and the dream to become a pro fighter? If yes, then Punch Club is here for you!
