Indie games...cant get enough!! - Page 3

post #21 of 76
This may have already been said, but grab the humble indie bundle. Get Frozen Synapse, Trine, and a lot of others on the cheap.

I am kicking myself for not picking up the last valve indie packs when they were on sale.

@ Sgrrsh26

I definitely want to buy Terraria then! wow!
If Bastion is to short for 15 bucks it may be just right for 5 bucks at christmas


@ Riou

lol on the username, seems familiar
yeah i have only the beginnings of a good indie collection, cant wait to buy more!


@ IEATFISH

I have the demo waiting for me now! another 12-13 hours and ill be playing it. developers are saying that they want to release more and more for it so great news there


@ TFL Replica

Gosh that is a great recommendation for Isaac then, think i really want to buy it straight out! thanks for all the info.


@ Blue_k

I'll find Gemini Rue today or tomorrow then, love playing demos. i actually downloaded 16 yesterday so i could try a bunch out.
I havent heard of Desura what's it like?


@ Grief

How much time left on the Humble Bundle? ill be at work for the next 13 hours so it would suck to miss it. i actually grabbed one of the last bundles whole TD pack. 5 games for 40 bucks

Yeah, there was just a huge update a day or two ago. It's only like a two man studio so definitely worth supporting.

Have GTX 590, love love love love indie games. I didn't think Bastion was short for $15. I thought that the storytelling and polish were more than justification for the price.

Jerry said it better than I ever could have:

I love everything about Narrators, even the unreliable ones, and the game’s exquisite use of this trick - and the gifted actor they’ve slotted in the role - is a Wow Device with the Captivator set at maximum. His voice is like wrapping yourself in a quilt straight from the dryer. There is much to like about the game; just on the edge of too clever, it’s got sentiment without going twee. Eloquent, demonstrative art. On a primal level, it have nice playings; it fun to hit beast. At the end of the day, though… that voice. The warmth.
I'm a fan of the music as well. IMO the atmosphere of the game is just right.

Ohhhhhhmygod Trine. It was what got me into indie games. It saddens me that Trine 2 seems to have completely fallen off the map.

I think the humblebundle is running for like a month or something, maybe only a couple weeks but it should have a bit of time left.

@ IEATFISH

2 man studio, gosh that is so cool. almost gives me hope that i could do something just as awesome as those guys.. would be a dream come true!
I'll buy it, flat out, im going to. cant wait!


@ MKHunt

Good to have to you playing the small games to man!
great wording from Jerry. i also remember an interview with the developers about the narrator, saying they wanted to make it so you could play the whole game twice without hearing the same thing over again. gotta give them creds just for that

I really noticed the music in the demo as well, makes a perfect atmosphere. I will say also that in about all the indie games, they pay alot more attention to the music and making sure it fits the game exactly. Big titles do that as well, but sometimes they miss the mark and you lose some immersion.

Want to find this Trine as well, i dont know anything about it myself.
to the wiki!


@ Faster_is_better

haha great!! gives me lots of time to check it out thanks dude
love all the discussion guys! if you find more games let me know about them! i have small reviews going for the demos ive played but it may be a couple days before i post everything so dont unsubscribe the thread just yet

@ Corhen

yeah i saw that. looked so weird making molecules in a puzzle, so i passed it up at first. will check out the demo now though. thanks for the recommendation

Forgot to mention, the Bastion soundtrack is worth looking into. I got it just for the three vocal tracks.

Zulf's theme, Zia's theme, ending song. Ugh. I need to go play Bastion again.

ETA: And I forgot all about Hawken. Oh man I deserve a facepalm.

yeah it would seem that Indie games are all the rage right now and there are plenty of them that are great games

Binding of Isaac is great...just needs native controller support IMO to be awesome

Revenge of the titans...really good spin on a tower defense game...definitely worth a try if you like tower defense games

Braid...another must play...its like a platformer with time altering abilities

Osmos...is like the starting stages of "Spore"...very relaxing game that has great eat or be eatin gameplay

Super Meat Boy...if you like hard and i mean VERY hard platformers than this is the game for you

i just listed a few games ive enjoyed and that i own on steam...someone already said this...but i would bookmark the humble bundle site and check it out when they run their sales...they have a sale going right now thats pretty good...but their last sale was awesome...for 5$ i got like 17 games or something like that
