And remember the character building scenes at that party, or prom dance, when they had not a care in the world? Or something that just made you wonder when the good part was coming? And then all of a sudden, BAM! A slasher comes and starts hacking those kids to pieces or a ghost starts to haunt them to death or something crazy like that. Now those carefree teens have to find a way to survive without dying. Do you remember? Well buckle up ladies and gents cause Oxenfree is going to take you back through those movies. Well…sort of anyway.

The Other Side of War
When we hear the word war, we automatically think of the military fighting the other side for a cause and is trying to defeat the “enemy” the best way that they can. We think of the fighting and hassle of the military out there. We think of the violence and killing. What we fail to take into account most of the time is the other side of the war: The people. How are the people affected? What do they do during the war? Don’t they know that it is bad out in that territory that the war is? Why don’t they get out of there? What are they doing? Well this game will finally answer the age old question of what happens to the civilians of the city who are trapped during the war.

Circa Infinity is a very simple game with very simple pixel graphics. In fact, so far I’ve only seen three colors in the game: white, black, and red. The goal is to avoid the red enemies and get through the infinite number of circles in levels. If you touch an enemy, it’ll send you back to the previous circle.
Fan-girling aside – no wait, that’s really what I’m here to do anyways, so let’s go!
Fate Tectonics was one of those fairly hard to find indie games that I honestly wouldn’t have heard about if my colleagues hadn’t told me about it. It was at a booth with 3 other games and only had one demo that wasn’t on any of the bigger screens – but I thought it was more interesting than the ones getting all the attention.
A great game that harks back to the early Metroid era.
Renegade Kid has hit the indie market again this month with their newest game: Xeodrifter. Xeodrifter is an action-platformer set in space, that brings to mind older games such as Metroid and Mega Man. At its core, it’s a quirky game that offers a solid challenge for players old and new to action platformers. The monsters only serve to get harder and bigger while the bosses learn and grow as you progress.
