This week has been a bit of an emotional roller coaster for me, but I woke up this morning to realize that it’s Thursday. You know what that means? It’s almost the weekend! But before we get to the weekend, we need to celebrate some awesome indie news. Also, a huge thank you to Timster for my new Indie Zoe header.
In local indie awesomeness, I already told you about Pixel Boy getting Greenlit. Now, local developers Tasty Poison Games’ Neon Shadow is top of the OUYA store and has been released on iOS. Well done to the local talent making a big splash on the international scene!
Pixel Boy wasn’t the only game to get Greenlit this week. In fact, 40 games have been Greenlit in this batch. It seems that Valve was serious about speeding up the process; they are approving games almost every two weeks. Well done on the support for indies. This just goes to show the importance of voting for games you’re excited about and being a part of the community. The more we support Steam Greenlight, the more indies can get funding and help getting their games out, the better our gaming experiences and variety will be.
In other indie news, FTL: Faster Than Light is getting an upgrade in 2014. It’s getting an advanced edition, as well as an iPad version. For those who already own FTL, the advanced edition will be available as a free update. Check out their new trailer:
Meanwhile, Don’t Starve will be free with PS Plus when the game launches in January. It will launch on PS4 with all the content available at that point in the PC version, with updates running parallel from then on. Additionally, The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth will also be free on PS Plus when the game launches early next year. That IndieStation is looking pretty good.
Over on the Humble Bundle, Mortal Kombat and Guardians of Middle Earth have been added to the bundle if you paid more than the average. Also, on the Humble Store today you can pick up System Shock 2 for $2.50 – a must buy considering it made Geoff’s list of top 10 games.
