Indie Zoe: Raider of the Lost News (16 May 2014)

You guys thought I forgot about you, didn’t you. Well, I didn’t forget, I just, um, didn’t realize it was Thursday yesterday. So, you get your indie news today! Time to rejoice. Here comes all the good news.

First things first, Thomas Was Alone has launched on iPad. That’s right, you can get this glorious game that was one of my favorite games of last year (yes, go read the review if you haven’t already) is now playable on the world’s favorite tablet. If you haven’t played the game yet, despite it being available on PC/Mac and PlayStation devices, it really is about time that you did so.

Over on the Humble Bundle Weekly Sale, you can grab another favorite indie – Mark of the Ninja, along with eight other awesome games. You should do it, Mark of the Ninja was amazing and the guys from Klei are geniuses.

Speaking of bundles, our very own local developers, Celestial Games, have Toxic Bunny in the Indie Royale bundle. You’ll grab a bunch of other games with it for about $2.50 – if you’ve been meaning to play this game but haven’t gotten there yet, this price is hard to beat.

Cheap games are awesome – I hope you grabbed local favorite Desktop Dungeons for half price on Steam this week. If you didn’t, it’s still on sale despite mid-week madness being over, so go grab it and learn how to think better. These sales aren’t just good for us, they also give a huge boost to developers. Just look at how well they did during the last sale in December!

Prototype of the Week

Made as a Ludum Dare game, riDickulous is a horribly hilarious game involving whale hunting, harpoons and sharks with lasers. It’s everything you should want in a game. You can grab the Windows version – we gave the guys a ton of feedback at the last community get together, but I’m sure they’d appreciate any advice that you might have.

    Thomas Was Alone has gotten my nomination for best game I will/have played 2014.
    I really shouldn’t have gone to sleep 2/3rds of the way through the game though.
    I’m sure I could have gotten through the next day on 5 minutes sleep and it would have been worth it.

    TWA has hit the charts big time in the UK (think it was 8th last time I heard from Mike). Also not doing badly in America at all. He was totally giddy on twitter! Even got a reply from him when I asked whether it would make it to the Xbox…
