There’s loads of neat indie games with time limited demos out to try until Monday.
Let’s use this thread to post about the cool ones we’ve enjoyed!
I’ve only played two so far:
Windjammers 2, dotemu’s sequel to the Data East classic plays similarly to its predecessor, but with a new jump move, a slapshot move, and a super meter.
My first impression is that these new abilities are kind of diluting the great simplicity of the original, but maybe I’ll see them as improvements once I get used to them.
If I was a lazy games writer I would describe Ghostrunner as Mirror’s Edge meets Hotline Miami. And whilst that is a trite way of putting it, it’s exactly how I felt playing it. Luckily these are both games I really enjoyed so this has gone straight onto my wishlist.
There’s a couple more games I’m going to try out over the next few days, there’s one about a cute platforming cat with a magic camera called ShutterNyang, and a very bizarre “Anti-adventure game” called Critters For Sale.
What gems have you found in the festival?
