Audiosurf which we picked as number 1 in our Top budget steam games is now only $2.49 to buy, and the special only lasts for 1 week so hurry!
As mentioned in our previous article Audiosurf is a very simplistic game, basically you pilot a ship to music. The games environment is based on whatever songs(mp3s) you make available for the game, once started you have to collect blocks to try and build a combo to your selected song. Audiosurf does it in such an addictive way that you’ll want to play all your songs to try and compete for the best possible score on the leaderboard.
Genocide Automation (GA) is a quirky little war simulator that was shown at the Sense of Wonder Night, an event at the Tokyo game show that featured indie games that were truly unique.
In GA, there are two armies, the orange and the blue. For whatever reason, they are annoyed with eachother, and try to annialate eachother; hence the genocide. Both armies will follow set patterns, and when the battle is finished the better pattern will remain, and the losing side will try a different algorithm. This is all automatic; the game only allows you very minimal interaction- you can make the orange side move towards your mouse, or, if you right click, away from your mouse. Just a heads up; this game is in Japanese, which doesn’t matter much, but the boot menu and the documentation are very confusing if you don’t know Japanese.
Prompt Critical is a trippy space shooter, your task is to stop any enemies coming from the wormhole (… or is it stop any enemies getting to the wormhole) it’s all a bit confusing but anyway it is an awesome little game,
Penumbra: Overture is free on Gametap until Novermber 5th. To my understanding, as long as you download it before that date you get to keep it for free, indefinitely, so long as you don’t uninstall it. I won’t write a review for it since it’s been out for over a year and reviewed by many sites already.
However, it is an indie game and looks quite amazing. Even if you aren’t interested right now, grab it anyways. It’s free and it looks like an awesome game. If you don’t get it, you might have regrets later when I review the sequel and you realize how awesome the series is. On the positive side, you will have saved yourself the expense of replacement undergarments.
The Aussie crew over at Toadtrip.com released their debut PC title ‘Zompocalypse’ late last week, Zompocalypse is a hardcore 2D Zombie shoot em up, full of foul language and loads of gore.
I think in our beta coverage we best summed up the game, ‘In Zompocalypse equipped with destructive weaponry take on hordes of Zombies, solo or with a partner… Think Metal Slug except zombiefied and you’ll be get a rough idea of what this game is like.’ Check out the trailer after the jump.
Metroid 2 the under-appreciated bridge between Metroid and Super Metroid has recently been painstakingly remade by a dedicated fan, the graphics are on par with the SNES Metroid graphics and thus is a definite step up from the original monochrome gameboy version.
Although it’s still only a demo, it looks like it could make for a great remake(..catchy rhyme). Grab the latest version here, trailer after the jump.
Everyone’s favorite upcoming quirky FPS has just been delayed until next year, sadly as much I was hoping it would come out this year it seemed inevitable to be delayed with the massive scope this game has. Hopefully the extra development time give them enough time to make it a perfect game.
You can read our interview with the ZenoClash team here, also the new screenshots after the jump.
So grab the demo here, and at only a tiny 33megs you have no excuse not to download it (…unless you have already purchased it, but then I doubt you would of read this far) nonetheless it’s the entire first chapter and is very much worth the download.
Here’s an interesting title to watch out for from a very talented artist by the name of John Green. In Nearly Departed, players will take control of a “reluctant zombie” trying to make his way in the big city. Read more… »
