A couple of weeks back when our review dropped for This Is The Police 2 we had a lot of shining praise for the indie sequel to a game all about doing what it takes to enforce the law in tricky situations. Today the game is available for the public on consoles and we’d like to discuss its strong points some more. Consider this another glowing recommendation for prospective buyers. Don’t hesitate on picking this up, if you do – you’ll be missing out on some thrilling and high quality gameplay with a great story driving it all.
Slay the Spire is an indie rogue-like that combines procedurally generated dungeon crawling with card game mechanics in the vein of Hearthstone or The Elder Scrolls: Legends. Whilst the title is still in Early Access on Steam it has an incredible amount of work put into it already and is being updated on a weekly basis. This is an evaluation of the hands-on experience from many hours spent in the 5.28.18 version of the game.
The Best Indie Debut is a new category for The Game Awards this year which recognizes games making a huge splash during their first year of launch. The category will serve to highlight runaway blockbusters from the indie scene which hit the ground running.
Cuphead is good. Everyone should play it. It’s on PC too so you have no excuse, and definitely pay for it don’t steal it. Those developers deserve that money. They worked their asses off. Fuck the Oscars.
Cuphead is the Best Debut Indie Game of the Year 2017.
Cuphead also win the award for Best Art Direction which I would agree with whole-heartily as it depicts the classic cartoon animations of the 30’s, 40’s, 50’s, and even 60’s with likeness to something out of a Mickey Mouse legendary series in video game form. It definitely deserves an award and any recognition that it gets, and more.
51 different outlets and influencers judged half of the vote for this award with the other 50% of the vote going to gamers and website visitors who participated in The Game Awards live interactive.
A game with a long history and storied past featuring nearly a decade of development work for various releases beginning as early as on the Flash platform in 2008 and perhaps before that, Super Meat Boy has come a long way. Released on Xbox 360 through the XBLA (Xbox Live Arcade) store-front with some marketing help from Microsoft including during Microsoft’s 2010 Fall GameFeast XBLA.
The game’s development studio Team Meat was also featured in the documentary Indie Game: The Movie with the title later arriving on Windows PC through Steam, Direct2Drive, Humble Bundle, and other store-fronts. A Mac OS X edition of the game came out as well. PlayStation 3 was never able to get a port due to restrictions placed upon the developers by the XBLA contracts back in those days for indie games, something Microsoft and Sony have certainly learned a lot about and come a long way from since.
Super Meat Boy is confirmed for PS4 and PlayStation Vita release some time during Fall 2015 and will be free for all PlayStation Plus members on both platforms. Team Meat neglected to make any comment about a PS3 version, but said that making Super Meat Boy free for fans who have PS+ is their way of saying thanks and apologizing for the wait.
A sequel to Super Meat Boy which fully expands the concept is still said to be in development at Team Meat though it has not be publicly mentioned since last year. In addition to this, a graphically enhanced touch-screen controlled version of the game has been planned for mobile devices for some time with evidence of that development being shown off. This re-release could be the beginning of a larger outreach for Team Meat in which more titles across more platforms begin to release, so keep an eye on this development team and enjoy the free title when it launches on PS+ this Fall 2015.
