Indie Game Blog Carnival #1

indie games wordle

Hello everyone! I’m at SxSW right now, and I’m either listening to an amazing session, drinking with friends, or completely lost on the complete opposite side of where I mean to be going. (That is how conferences go for me.) But here are some awesome indie game links while I’m away:

Shawn Trautman shares some freeware recommendations over on Discover Games Discover Games is a great blog to follow, both for curating interesting game links from other sites and for Shawn’s own reviews. I particularly enjoyed Shawn’s law-student take on The Devil’s Attorney. (I reviewed this for Hardcore Droid, and it’s fun to see where we overlapped.)

Andy McNamara presents Buggyz : Slot Racing in the Future! posted at Buggyz : Game Development Blog. Andy calls BUGGYZ “a fun, fast-moving slot-racing game set in the future but with a retro 1950’s cartoon vibe – think ‘The Jetsons’ meets Scalextric and you get the idea.” In Buggyz, players will compete again a friend or against the computer as they race and do tricks. The game is being developed for iOs and iPad.

Indie Game Freak has a review of Sleep is Death – A Remarkable 8-Bit Storytelling Game for Two Players over at Indie Game Reviewer.

R3nD shares the making of Super Rocket Shootout, a 4-player couch multiplayer brawler, posted at Oddly Shaped Pixels.

Hiroshi Mishima shares a review of “The Loch: A Scottish Fishing RPG” by Mitch Alexander over on The Daily Dakmordian (Did you know there are fishing-themed game jams? I didn’t.)

That concludes the first Indie Games Blog Carnival! You can participate in the next one by submiting a link from your dev blog or a link to an indie game review by using the carnival submission form, or you can email me. Or leave a comment here. Or send a carrier pigeon, whatever you want.
