It’s the season of AAA games! All the biggest releases of the year come out in this period, and indies can easily get lost in the shuffle. That said, some of the indie announcements are getting me more excited than I thought – especially when they include Don’t Starve, Cook Serve Delicious and FTL.
Don’t Starve Together will be bringing co-op and multiplayer elements to Don’t Starve. It’s something I’ve wanted from the beginning and I’m far too happy to see that it’s coming together nicely. The latest video looks fun and it makes me giggle to see players trolling each other.
Cook, Serve, Delicious! is getting a free update on Sunday on Steam. It includes all kinds of craziness, including multiplayer and even a guest character roster – a space slug from FTL: Faster Than Light. You can read all about Battle Kitchen over here; I’ve already gotten re-addicted, and I’ve now decided to get the game on iPad, too. I think it’s over for me.
In latest Mike Bithell news, Volume has a newly disclosed voice actor: Andy Serkis. Serkis is known for his work on The Lord of the Rings trilogy and is also lending his voice to The Avengers: Age of Ultron. He will play an evil CEO in Volume who basically runs a near-future version of London.
In bundles, the Humble Indie Bundle got even more games added to the package, but you don’t need to hear that. The Steam Halloween sale just finished, I’m sure you’re backlog is already restocked.
Prototype of the Week
I wasn’t sure which game to tell you about, until I saw this quote on a post about Mine Zombie Failure:
Oh my, somebody made a cookie clicker game? And you can lose? Mind blown!
Zombies combined with cookie clicker and the possibility of losing? You can download it over here.
