Random indie game findings

Post by MrFlibble »

A while ago I developed a habit to browse IndieDB in a random search for something interesting. This is how I found Wyrmsun in the first place. However, I often don't have the time to actually try out or even just follow a project, and there are so many games out there it's easy to lose track of them.

Great idea! I was really intrigued by StarJunk, but I forgot about them. Glad you refreshed my memory! I think I had a few I don't see on this list, I'll try to contribue. And if you want to keep this list-only, no worries if you want to delete this commentary message. B)

Well yeah, refreshing my own memory was one of the goals as well. I've also dug a few more potentially interesting things in the process too.

You might also notice that all the above have one thing in common - there are downloads of demo/beta/whatever payable releases. This is because I browsed the files, not the genre categories.

Master Spy - Stealth Platformer
This one is released on Steam and intrigues me, but I haven't pulled the trigger quite uet.

Star Trek: Excalibur - Space Simulation(?)
I don't know if this can break the curse of Star Trek games, but looks like a valiant effort!

These are both from the 2015 highly voted games:

This is tangential, but the names of some games... kinda silly. And even funnier if you mix them up:
Forsaken Desolation, Infinite Castle, Warbane, Terrorsim...
OTOH, I'd play some of those games, they sound cool

I guess it's pretty hard to come up with an original title for a game these days :)
