Indies at first Sight: The Last Door


 

The Last DoorThe Last Door, this adventure either stops in its tracks or keeps you on your toes.  I am not one for horror games.  So even though this game says it is a horror game, I do not feel the need to jump up on a chair like a pansy.  I love the art style the developers chose, just to be an almost simple point and click adventure.  The music is a nice touch, mixing a Alfred Hitchcock and other keen aspects of horror music.   The gameplay is bland at times and feels like is missing a lot.  Although this title does not hold your hand, a little hint here and there would have been suffice.  The way the game pans out, makes it all worth the while to play.  In all honesty, I tried to like this game as much as I could.  It has potential and for being an episodic game, it really stands out.   Altogether, The Last Door gets a 7.5/10.  It should have been released as a digital copy on Desura instead of being a flash title on their website.  The fact that the first episode is free, bothers me.   I appreciate developers who take the time to make games we may or may not enjoy.  The effort is great.  They were in their right mind to get the game off the ground to at least let you play a bit before you decided to buy episode 2.  The Last Door should have been, in my opinion on game clients like Steam and Desura. Interested in The Last Door?  CHECK IT VIA THEIR WEBSITE.

Thomas Was Alone (Review)


Review by: Ady Carter
Created by Mike Bithell, Thomas Was Alone bills itself as “a minimalist game about friendship and jumping” which to be frank is pretty much exactly what it is. Spinning out of a successful flash-based demo and with a little bit of crowd funding support to polish it up, Thomas Was Alone arrives this weekend for the PC and Mac. It’s a tough game to accurately describe, and one that’s perhaps best discovered rather than laid out before you in a review, but this is a review and you expect as much, so I should try!

It’s a game about friendship and jumping. Guide Thomas and his friends

weaknesses as they work their way through an intriguing – and often
impossibly cute – story, narrated by Danny Wallace.


Oniken, FOR THE LOVE OF THE 90s!


By: Master Blud

I don’t know about you, but I sure do enjoy a good music from the 80s and 90s with the combination of pixels.  LOVE PIXELS.  There is just something about them.  I am also pretty sure it has to do with nostalgia.  Anywho, JoyMasher is bringing this, what looks to be, a side-scroller shmup and beatemup.  Both of my favorite genres in one.  The soundtrack from the trailer really got me in the mood.  The gameplay got me excited,  I will probably pick this up myself.   What are your plans?  Drop it or Buy it? Leave your comments below this awesome press release and junk :-). Also, watch the trailer.
