Little Indie Games Worth Knowing About (Probably)

Thanks. Think I’ll pass, then.

Harald:
I bought it on Steam and played one game against the AI. Thought I was doing great but the last turn killed me. It is hard keeping all the different scoring relationships straight in your head.

If you want to play a game against me I am geetop.

The hardness reminds me when we both tried to beat the tutorials in Prismata! : )


#944

I’d be up for that except we both have to be online at the same time to setup a game. After that, turns are async, I think. Where do you live?


#945

X-Com (the original) meets Chaos Overlords? Yes, please.

Vigilantes. It’s early access but only $10.

Have some game play..

As an aside, this is the first time I’ve seen one of this guy’s videos, and I really like his style a lot.


#946

Sold. I liked Chaos Overlords but I felt like there should be more to it. Adding tactical combat is perfect. It looks to me like there’s a bit of RPG DNA in there as well, specifically Wasteland 2.

Now I’ll just try to resist the urge to play it until it releases.


#947

Not sure if this is the best thread, but I just returned from the European Conference on Game-Based Learning where a swiss game about data security and privacy won first prize in the 5th International Educational Games Competition:
Datak can be played in English, I see the embed is in French.


#948

Top-down shooter inspired by STALKER:

Beta/demo here:


#949

Warbanners just got released.

Anyone here can offer a review? Is it worthy enough to have it’s own thread?


#950

Been watching over it for a while, I’d love to hear impressions (and how the English version is faring)


#951

I am a sucker for games like this. The last one I enjoyed a lot was Battle Brothers.


#952

Bomber Crew drops tomorrow. Advance word is pretty positive, as it seems to be a marriage between FTL and the RAF, with a bit more depth.

My main questions is whether you can issue orders while paused, and I’ve yet to get a straight answer.


#953

Funny you should mention Battle Brothers:


#954

This reads definitely like it is an update ot Drums of War.
I really liked that game, and enjoyed the approach of handcrafted scenarios where you are supposed to figure how to make best use of the environnment. Definitely keeping this one under my radar!


#955

From what I’ve seen on Youtube, sadly no.


#956

Yeah, from a video of the final build I watched this morning, it’s probably too frantic for me.


#957

Thanks for posting that. This is just the kind of game I love but the on-rails design is something I hate in these games. I agree with the reviewer. You have to have more stuff to do than just one relentless mission after another, after another. They should have at least offered scenarios.


#958

Tom is offering in his lottery for supporters. If I win I’ll post my impressions. This game sounds harder than Battle Brothers, gulp!


#959

From the review above, it sounds like another game that I liked. Templar Battleforce. With fixed scenarios and RPG elements of troop compositions.


#960

That is a great game that I need to play more.


#961

Ditto.
