Indie games are taking the world by storm, and that is not even an overstatement. Advantages of most indie games is that we get to see what we would LIKE to see in a game. Thanks to crowd-funding sites like Kickstarter, we can follow a game?s development phase and even give our own inputs on it. (Not all of them of course, but independent developers, lend their ears more frequently compared to big names in the gaming industry). Crowd-funding and Indie games take a huge role in molding the future of video games.
Here are some great looking Top Indie games on Kickstarter that you might want to check out
Twin Souls: Path of Shadows
This game can easily be the modern ?Tenchu? with its core gameplay mechanics and great looking visuals. Here?s a brief description of the game on its indiedb.com page:
?In a land ruled by supernatural powers, religious factions and magic, a dead warrior comes back to the world of the living. All memories of his past life lost and with the new-found gift of Shadow Control, our anti-hero starts a deadly journey filled with violence, dark magic, powerful beings and echoes of the past. Will you walk the path of shadows?
Twin Souls is a 3rd Person Stealth Game for PC, Mac and Linux that combines the essence of stealth classics like the Tenchu Saga with the modern approach of recent gems like Mark of the Ninja and Dishonored.
The game has been already greenlit in Steam Greenlight.
Easily one of the best looking retro-inspired games that makes ?homage to games like Megaman, Metroid, and Castlevania. All in glorious 2D pixelated goodness. The game is about a young woman who?s going to travel through time to exact revenge on a twisted empire who wiped out her family and friends. Timespinner has?all the great features of the aforementioned games into one crazy package that you can get for your PC, Mac or Linux.
If you?re longing for a classic Castlevania action with a modern approach, look no further and stay tuned with Timespinner?s official site here for the release date.
We?ve been barraged nonstop by streams of ?Simulator? games. One notable simulator game is the Goat Simulator, which lets you become a ?Goat?, but the realism and experience may not be everybody?s cup of tea. Deer God, on the other hand, is a similar looking game (in 2D/3D pixelart style), but with a more ?serious? approach. It is a game where survival is the most important thing.
?The Deer God is a game about survival, reincarnation, and karma, all set in a breathtaking and unique 3D pixelized world. Feast your eyes on the beautiful lighting, day and night system, and mesmerizing water reflections.?
The game offers some tight platforming action and unique survival mechanics. Visit Deer God?s official Kickstarter page here to learn more (and pledge!).
