A hundred thousand yes:

Blueberry Garden is by Swedish developer, Erik Svedäng, and just looks utterly wonderful. The game is entered into this year’s Swedish Game Awards, and you can find out more about it, and that, here.

    I’m not sure what’s going on; but it’s beautiful.

  2. araczynski says:

    i failed to see the game or the wonderful, but loved the music. to each their own i guess.

  3. Lunaran says:

    You know what this just made me think of? You know what games need?

    The National Film Board of Canada. Just, them.

  4. PleasingFungus says:

    …what?

    The breeding was unexpected. Well, sort of. I thought, “Surely they’re not!”, and then they did.

    I’m very curious.

    another charmingly rendered 2d sidescrollin’ indie game

    WHAT A SURPRISE. Seriously though, did everyone get together and put together a set of rules for execution of indie games that seems nearly as dogmatic as the mainstream fare it’s meant to triumph over, or at least subvert a little bit?

  6. Stew says:

    You’re right. 2d side-scrolling games are just bending their knee to the dogmatic cartel secretly controlling indie games. It’s nothing to do with 3d engines being a sod to write or 2d sidescrollers being what gamer writers grew up with and thus feel a bit nostalgic for.

  7. Joonas says:

    I’m not getting the hate. It looks beautiful. It did not remind me of other indie games, but rather artsy animation.

    And it’s not like all of the indie games look this way, there’s still a lot of bloody shoot em ups and whatnot, but the more interesting stuff seems to have this trend now. I’m not complaining as long as the results are this unique.

  8. Winterborn says:

    Very nice. Though the interview could be more in depth about the mechanics of the thing.

  9. Bobsy says:

    From the trailer only… is it just me or does that game look a little… Soviet?

  10. Del Boy says:

    Ah right, so the pencil goes on the cheese.

  11. Ian says:

    I’m utterly, thoroughly baffled. Yet, for some reason, that doesn’t matter.

  12. Cigol says:

    Reminds me of Super Mario and Yoshi’s Island/Story. Looks nice anyway.

  13. weegosan says:

    didn’t really see any gaming in there, but does look nice.

  14. phuzz says:

    I’m not sure what’s going on; but it’s beautiful.

    uh huh, same here…

  15. Ozzie says:

    Hm, it certainly looks like it is more exploration based than anything else.
    Reminds me of Seiklus in that aspect.
    Which reminds me: When is Velella coming out?

    While in the past few months the amount of unusual indie games grew I don’t think it is enough.
    For those who like generic games, there are still more than enough of those.

  16. Chaz says:

    How many weapons does the game have?

  17. icabod says:

    Kissing… I knew it! I knew that’s where babies come from!

    Incidentally I was a little worried at the start of the trailer that this was another LineRider thing. Thankfully it looks not.

    Beautiful trailer indeed !

  19. Lorc says:

    I presume that after 30 days the bats are released.

  20. Jonathan says:

    From the interview
    “How much the player have to interact with that is up to her – but it sure helps a lot.”
    Ewwwwww! This is a game for girls.
    Also, I still don’t know what you actually do.

  21. Acosta says:

    Oh, god, it’s beautiful.

  22. El Stevo says:

    I wonder if there’s incest.

  23. terry says:

    This game has “bafflingly pleasing” written all over it. I require it posthaste!

  24. Matt says:

    Reminds me of Boomshine(http://www.k2xl.com/games/boomshine/). In the way that it should be pleasantly relaxing to play the game.

  25. Maxwell says:

    This will forever change the face of entertainment. I am confident that the prototype we’ve seen here at The Company will improve and thus, dawn a new era of gaming.
