Indie Games you look forward to (beside Gnomoria)
« on: September 08, 2012, 06:29:12 PM »
What indie games are you following?

Just saw a nice concept game with some interesting mechanics, a bit like Portal, with a family theme.

I'm following a fellow Dutchman on his blog: http://wollay.blogspot.nl/
His game, a 3D-pixel action-RPG called Cube World, looks extremely promising.

@OP: You mean indie games currently in development?

That's quite a few for me.

Some of them:

Legend of the Knightwasher - http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=92998873

Forge - http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=91594665

Secrets of Grindea - http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=92916246

I'm also following Wollay's game Cube World like Mythrrinthael does. Sadly there were no blog-updates for a while now.

I follow:

- Path of Exile (Diablo Clone)
- Miner Wars 2081 (Space Exploration/Mining/Sandbox)
- 0AD (Strategy)
- and a whole load of mods on ModDB

If you like survival games, you should try out the following - they are all in alpha or beta but playable for a small amount of cashhhh..

Salem: http://forum.salemgame.com/
Project Zomboid: http://projectzomboid.com/blog/ (also on steam greenlight)
Dont starve: http://www.dontstarvegame.com/blog/release-notes-65328/

I once played a Demo of Project Zomboid, but there wasn't much to do. It was a very early version. it look like they really fleshed out the game by now. I'm thinking of buying it.
Did they announce multiplayer already?

Any more survival-like games?

They have just been accepted as "launch" in the steam greenlight, so they are working very hard to get a stable single player version with new UI (which looks great btw) and other necessary features. They expect the final steam version to be out within the next few months (well before christmas they said)

I have similar concern with, the replay-ability and objective of the game. it is survival in the purest form, very little goal in the game and you will die at some point. But they have alot of sandbox features and a very good modding community, so there is always some new features/aspect of the game to try.

I am really also just waiting for the game to go multiplayer. But as far as i can read from the developers it will not happen before a couple of months into the next year - they want a stable singler player version first.
But im sure it will come, it is a great dream ofthe developers, to take it in this direction.. read this for an example:
http://theindiestone.com/community/viewtopic.php?f=20&t=10152 - lemmy is the main CEO/Developer. 

I dont have any more survival suggestion, other than the ones i have already given. But i do have a extra salem key if you want it.. I played Haven and Hearth, and loved the it very much. I have only played some salem, i dont know.. I like the idea but i still think its missing some emergence..

Oh wow. I was curious about Kerbal and got the demo...then played it all day. I'm currently trying to land on the moon. This game rocks!
Can I only buy this game on the kerbal store? Or do they have it on some service similar to desura as well ? I couldn't find it on desura.
And is there a way to get a discount?

I'll be monitoring PZ, not gonna buy it yet. We'll see how the multiplayer turns out. I have enough other games to play at the moment anyways.  ::)   But I really dig 'survival in it's purest form'. There are very few games out there, which get the survival feeling right I think.

And I had a quick peek at salem. I think it's not for me.

As far as I know you can only get it from the kerbal store, but once they have fleshed it out a little more, they want to make it more widely available.

About discounts and pricing, the price of pre-ordering the game goes up as the game grows. Until it reaches a final price at v1.0. Other then that, it is the usual buisness model of: buy now, get future updates for free. There are no discounts that I know of.
They just released v0.17 wich expands the kerbol star system with extra planets and moons (along with some other nice features) so the site might be down for a few days as everyone tries to download .17.

I'll be unavailable to the world for the next week or so as I try to shoot my kerbonauts into a gas giant...
Peak oil.

Decided to buy the game yesterday. A friend of mine visited, and we had a lot of fun building things and see them fail. Still couldn't manage to get anywhere near the moon. I'll have to figure out this whole orbiting thing first, I guess. ONWARDS

Secrets of Grindea for sure.

Also THIS: http://www.ionfx.com/ OMG SO MUCH THIS! A new engine made by a total of TWO developers and is a real survival game, not just 'I'm going to throw assortments of zombies at you' game. Sooo much nerd love.
I even sent an email in with lines of "Is it out yet?" XD Yup. Real classy, but I don't care. Need this game. Need a release date! The webpage said Q3 which was months ago and the steam greenlight said 'late September' ;_;

I'm keeping my eye on Kenshi, but it seems like it needs a ton of work to even be playable. The last highlight I saw was, they added doors like it was some brilliant new invention.... http://www.lofigames.com/

I'd also like to try "Where Angels Cry" because I'm a fan of those old time point and click adventure games :) http://www.cateia.com/games/games.php?id=32

Not really an indie game, but Tokyo Jungle comes out on Tuesday for the PS3 if you're looking for another survival game! No physical copy though. *sadface*

Kinda shocked it hasn't been mentioned yet but... I can't wait for Card hunter! http://www.cardhunter.com/

By far this is well above any other games I'm waiting for. I even stopped development on a similar game when I found out about this.

In the latest version of Kerbal Space Program there is a Tutorial on changing orbits and eventually entering muns orbit. So go ahead and check it out. Also there are several videos ony outube which can come in handy.

Anywgay I bought this game two days ago (actually it took me two days before I manage to buy it sucsessfuly due to their server problems) and I totally love this game.
