Why did I think that yesterday was Thursday? I’m not entirely sure, I think the days of the week are just running into each other. But that’s okay, because I have an exclusive deal on an indie game just for our wonderful readers. That’s right, just because you visit this site, you get some cool stuff for free, straight from the developers.

Before I tell you about the cool stuff that you can get just for reading this article, here is some indie news for you.

Patrice Desilets, the creator of the Assassin’s Creed universe, has moved around from Ubisoft to THQ, eventually leading to plenty of heartache and lawsuits. He has now started his own studio, Panache Digital Games. There is no info on the site about what he’s doing, but at least there’s a fancy landing page.

I’ve told you about O3DX before, and now they’re over on Greenlight and looking for some love. However, rather than just begging for some Greenlight help, they are also offering an exclusive promo to Lazygamer readers – a 50% discount!

The cheatcodes are lazyjump and spacejump. (Usage instructions in the download) And the voucher code they have to enter to receive the discount is GimmeLazyO3DX. The link to claim the discount is: https://payableform.appspot.com/forms/ai41o Every steam player that owns the discounted version will also get a FREE steam key once we are greenlit.

So, go support them, and go redeem some codes. Well done for being such an awesome community that the developers themselves want to reward you.

This is normally when I tell you about a cool new local indie prototype. I saw a few at the latest Make Games SA meet up, but it seems that the developers haven’t put them online for the rest of us. I attribute this to the fact that most game developers locally are either hard core veterans who release a game or two (or five) a year and spend the rest of the time diligently fixing their code, or they are game design students who release tons of prototypes into the wild, except now that they are writing exams. It’s a symptom of the local gaming scene – while there are some mature companies making games, the majority of the game developers are students or still very young. Here’s hoping that as the local industry matures, I am inundated with prototypes all the time. Meanwhile, just go play some indie games and be happy.
