The game Sketch Tales circles about user generated content. You – the player – are the one, who draws your own game content, that builds the world you are playing it. This one looks interesting for all kind of games, newbies, experts, young, old, consumers, prosumers, gamers, educators…

A game project of Alex Sytianov from Ukraine who teamed up as 8D Studio.

Here is the Kickstarter project page. Have fun backing this project!

reprisal-universe

The game Reprisal Universe is finally out (on Steam and some other platforms as well). It is a remade and enhanced version of the Populous-inspired game “Reprisal“, that was (and still is) available to play for free. And since this is a very good and addictive game, I recommend: get this game. It is a good one!

Hey, you want to check out this spacey-themed game, called “Futuridium“. It is instant fun, has got a neat futuristic design, a notable cool style, uplifting music – and it is a game that is hard. (Did you notice? We face a revival of hard games again. I guess also Flappy Bird did its part to this revival as well…)

The experts will notice, that this game is actually a remake of the good old game Uridium.

illucia-controller

A nice blend of playing video games and music at the same time – or to be more precise: to use video-game mechanics as an extended input device to order to organize sound. An interesting concept to build upon!!

Here you’ll get the idea:

In the center stands also the Illucia patchbay controller – an limited and very nice looking controller. Get them, while they’re available.

rymdkapsel

Everyone should get ready for the game Rymdkapsel – simply one of the best indie-casual games released for a while. In Rymdkapsel you take the command of a space-station and its minions. You have to open monoliths and defend yourself against aliens – making this a mix of a spacial strategy game and a tower defense sort-of game.

What this game makes so special, is the game-balancing . It’s been a while since I’ve seen such an extraordinary game-balacing. This game has a slow pace – a round usually takes between 40 and 70 minutes. Strategic failures can lead to the loss of a 40 minute play – so you have to think ahead oll of the time.

There are two small enhancements I can think of, to make this a really perfect game:

  • 1. The music get really a little bit of loopy after some while. The good thing is: the game has a feature to turn background music off.
  • 2. It would be cool to have a second or even a third level, when finishing all three missions. Like having different maps to start with.

But this are really small issues. Simply get this game Rymdkapsel made by grapefruit games. You will enjoy it!

I am lately interested in the Raspberry Pi as a gaming platform. And say what? There are a couple of interesting projects doing exactly this. There is for example Cave Story available for the Raspberry! Between other goodies, browse for example the game-tag at the Raspberry-site.

Another cool project seems to be the “RetroPie-Project“. This is a dedicated Raspberry-distribution, that aims at turning the Pi instantly into a retro-gaming console.

Got more interesting project? Feel free to leave a comment!

Another obscure videogame-finding. Mag Max is an arcade game from Japan, made in 1985 by Nichibutsu. It’s basically a shooter-game. The graphic-style is interesting: it has some soft of pseudo 3d and an “over- and underworld”. Also some weapons are some sort of strange.
