I love indie games. There’s just a sort of a creative freedom, ingenuity and singular artistic vision in many of these games that makes them often more fun than the big blockbusters. One unusual little indie game that recently popped onto my radar screen was Cart Life.
Aliens are most probably out there, but Nicolai Troshinsky’s game is for real. In UFO on Tape, you have spotted a spaceship with their camera while you’re on a moving vehicle. The challenge then is to keep shooting footage of the ship as it zips and darts about.
The game is brilliantly simple to play because you only need to use the mouse to keep track of the UFO.
I came across this unusual game over on IndieGames earlier today, and I have to say I like the way the early build is shaping up.
A small independent game studio called Santa Ragione created Tales of Unspoken World after being inspired by this stylized case design from the Famicase art exhibit a few of years ago.
This remake really just ought to be called A Game You Will Want to Play, So Download it for Your System of Choice Now, Dude. River City Dodge Ball All-Stars is a take on the classic Super Dodge Ball, the game that’s all about knocking your pompadoured opponents the heck out.
One of the latest offerings added to the Xbox Community Games lineup, Arrogancy Games’ Angry Barry is a political parody beat-em-up, and yes, that’s a word combination I never thought to use together in one sentence.
If you’re not paying attention to the Xbox Live Community games, you should be. These indie titles are so often a steal at minuscule prices, and if you’re into simple, beautiful experiences, you can find ’em aplenty.
