Reporting to you live from the US of A, this hipster is typing for your reading pleasure on an ancient Mac laptop. How much more hipster can you get – it was an Apple before it was cool. But that’s not the only indie news to report – here’s all the indie news of the week.
First up, here’s a teaser trailer for the upcoming collaboration between Telltale Games and Zen Studios: they’re teaming up to bring a new choice-based pinball experience.
The Walking Dead Pinball table features choice-driven gameplay across each of Season One’s five episodes, along with original story dialogue from the award-winning cast. Scenarios include choosing who to save and who to leave behind in a walker attack, solving problems and keeping up morale within the group, searching for food and supplies, acquiring important tools, and navigating through the herd amidst an oncoming walker breach.
Over on Steam Greenlight, Black the Fall got the thumbs up, but this Romanian-developed Iron-Curtain inspired game has more hurdles to overcome. You can play the demo here, and offer feedback to the developers. They are also heading to IndieGoGo in the future to drum up further support, so if this seems like a game you’d enjoy playing, go show them some love.
Can’t grab Watch Dogs just yet? Fear not, for the low low price of $2.99, you can grab the Hacker Bundle with all the Hacker Evolution games you could ask for.
Prototype of the Week
Over on the Make Games SA forum, SpaceBoy Dreams is a Flappy Bird-inspired pattern game looking for some feedback. Go check out the demo and see if you can give the developer some helpful advise or feedback.
