    Can't seem to find a thread for all the brilliant indie games out there, although I probably missed it. Anyway, here we are!

    Just wanted to vent my spleen and warn people about Machinarium and your game save getting wiped if you use ccleaner, three times I've had to start the game and I aint doing it again!

    Not sure if Mark of the ninja is classed as indie but loving that game at the moment as well as of course, FTL

    Been playing FTL (duh), Dungeons of Dredmor, Legend of Grimrock, Gemini Rue ... and Machinarium ;)

    I back up my saves to Dropbox from time to time, mainly because I use different computers to play it.

    Is cradle that build your robo-possibly-dead-wife-or-something in the Mongolian wilderness simulator? That looked excellent. Apart from the bullshit puzzle blocks bit that turned up in one trailer.
  • Deleted user 17 June 2014 19:15:35
    Yeah. Although, the dead wife thing is a bit creepy...

    Have been playing a lot of Creeper World 3 recently. Interesting enemy (a fluid mass) and lots of ways to win. Anyone played it?
  • Deleted user 16 July 2014 20:23:58
    Not heard of that one, I'll have to take a look.

    More games:

    Shovel Knight
    A Nes styled platformer

    The Last Tinker: City of Colours
    A 3D platformer similar to those on the N64

    Night in the woods
    An adventure game focused on story, characters and exploration.

    German based Daedalic Entertainment have shown some great stuff that I'm looking forward to seeing more of their games.

    The Whispered World 2 Silence
    A great looking sequel to the whispered world with an interesting 3D look.

    Divinity, Orginal Sin.
    An isometric RPG

    Not much info on these two yet, but The Devils Men and Fire:

    Hi, I am an AI expert working on a very unique RTS, Stardust Colonies.

    In Stardust Colonies, the player takes a role of a Colonizator, and a member of a high-tech alien species that defeats and colonises other planets. The game is an AI-focused mixture of emotion and task micro management, forcing players to observe their units and how their feelings change over time in order to make the colony survive and fulfil objectives like building monuments or securing hostile areas.

    Each unit has its own happiness and energy level that affect how it performs. Happiness of a minion is determined by whether it likes the task it’s doing (mining, farming, breeding) and by its other personal experiences. The player also needs to keep an eye on the energy of their minions and let them rest from time to time so they return to work fresh.

    In later versions of the game, there will be hostile alien creatures and RPG-like tech tree.

    Help the game get original 3D graphics and a dark atmosphere on Kickstarter!
    You can download a free demo on said: “A really interesting premise and a passionate designer behind it"

    Been watching a few streams and vids of 'This War of Mine'.

    A survival sim that makes me feel bad about surviving. Scavenging and looting in a 2d, shelter management rpg.

    Doing pretty well on Steam at the moment, just not a game if you like your games happy and cheerful. If you ever felt guilty about shooting people in DayZ then this is not for you. This is not 'war' as depicted in video games traditionally, you're a civilian, not a soldier.

    If you want to cut a granny's throat, this is the game for you. (seriously, you can do that and then take her belongings)

    Demetrios: The Big Cynical Adventure


    Demetrios is a fresh take on the classic "Point & Click" adventure games, adding a touch of cynical humor to the characters motivations.

    The game puts you in the shoes of Bjorn Thonen, an antique seller being robbed one night after coming back home drunk. Doing his own investigation with the help of Sandra, his next-door neighbor, he ends up involved in a mysterious and murky affair. But these two unlikely heroes may be able to surpass themselves and discover ancient secrets!

    Chapter 1 demo is available right now off his site:
