Bring on the Indies.
Some rather good news for those of you that have an appreciation for Indie games which, in recent years anyway, have more substance and depth than some major releases. So, there’s been a revival in indie games on consoles, especially on the PlayStation 4 recently. Well you will be pleased to know that they (Sony and Versus Evil, that is) are bringing a number of exceptionally good indie games to their platform.
We have Armikrog, a point and click adventure game created by the developers of the original (and excellent) Earthworm Jim video game using stop motion clay animations. Imagine how long that took to make. There’s The Banner Saga, it’s an award winning turn based strategy game like no other with a beautifully realised art style that makes use of 2D animations. A modern classic with a sequel in the works.
There’s also Kyn, a tactical role playing game developed by Holland based duo. What are your thoughts on this? Let us know in the comments section below.
