Been such a lovely bank holiday weekend so far and I’m off to the lake district today to take in some of the beautiful sights this country has to offer. But don’t worry, I’ve not forgotten about you guys. For you lot, I’m taking you on a trip to see some beautiful sights too, not physically of course cause I’m not made of money, just a short journey through the indie developer world. Enjoy!
First up this week is a game that reminded me a little of the new Mummy film that’s being released starring Tom Cruise. It’s a dungeon crawler called Cryptarium by Roque Fish Games, where you will battle a whole host of weird and wonderful enemies, including Mummy Priests, who you can see the devs taking on in this small clip below. Only criticism is they spelt losing incorrectly in their Facebook post, and nothing gets on my goat more than people geting lose and loose mixed up.
Next up, we have a gif of one of the bosses from the game Sucker Munch: Reloaded by a small Venezualan dev team called Oultrox. And before you ask the question, yes, he did just shit himself, and yes, that is why I’ve included him because poop is funny! Not too sure he’s the kind of bad guy you’d want to bump into, or be recruited for a suicide squad, but Poop Man certainly has a catchy name and a unique power. You can actually play a version of this now over on Kongregate HERE.
And last, but by no means least, we have Bolt Storm another dungeon crawler developed by Kuality Games, and this certainly looks it’ll be a Kuality addition to Steam. As the King, you must lead your troops into battle using a mixture of ranged and melee combat to survive. It reminds me ever so slightly of a medieval old school Dynasty Warriors, where you used to have your personal bodyguards who would tackle the more common enemies as you’d tackle the other side’s officers. This clip shows how the devs have incorporated grenades into their combat system.
