Feature: GIF all day

The Gifs That Keep On Giffing

Every now and again I go to browse the 'Gifs of games being worked on' thread in the TIGSource forums (The Independent Gaming Source community forum). I probably shouldn't admit this but I'm not really there to scout out games. Sure, something cool might stand out and I'll investigate further but the real pleasure is the pretty or interesting or characterful gifs. Perhaps I'll find…

DevLog Watch: Thief Story & Irkalla

Mondays are a great day for giving a little love to new, in-development indie projects. There's fast becoming no better place to find those projects than TIGSource's DevLog forum, where developers regularly post screenshots, GIFs and audio samples from their upcoming projects. By my eye, the games most in demand of some attention currently are Thief Story, a cutesy, Nintendo-ish, top-down game about stealing stuff,…

Vote For Versus In TIGSource Compo

The latest TIGSource competition, this time with a theme of "versus" is now open for voting, with eighty-something (count 'em!) entries up for your voting attention. There are some strong entries in there, such as the philosophically significant Jesus vs Dinosaurs, the attractively cloudy Brigands, of the peculiarly conflicted Tetris Fight Club. Experimental! Indie! Affirmative! You should take a look.

Backwards Design: Assemblee

There aren't many game design competitions that I feel a man of my total lack of game-design skills could possibly have entered, but TIGSource's Assemblee is one. I curse myself for not submitting something - though in fairness I was moving house at the time, so drawing sprites in Photoshop on my laptop whilst sat in a removal van would doubtless only have resulted in…

TIGS: Vasily Zotov Interview

This must be one of the most extraordinary interviews ever to be featured on a games site. It's subject is Vasily Zotov, the creator of bizarre adventure title, Quite Soulless. The topics covered include Zotov's strange art style, the reason behind his creativity, the status of the mentally ill in Russia, homelessness, the status of immigrants, and Zotov's troubled move to California. Here's a sample…

Team Fortress 2D, Anyone?

This has to be one of the finest entries to TIGSource's awesome Bootleg Demakes competition. It's Gang Garrison II, a demake of the peerless Team Fortress 2. It's a two-dimensional version of the red-vs-blue class-based game we all know and love. In fact it's almost the same game... only flatter. It's got network code, heavies, snipers, scouts, the lot. There's a video of it in…

Demaking The Rope Burning

Heavens to Betsy, someone's demade You Have To Burn The Rope! As part of TigSource's Bootleg Demakes compo (now closed), entrant Blueberry has created Advanced Set The Rope On Fire Cartridge. And a mighty feat it is too. Not only rolling back the sophisticated 2D graphics of the original, they've also adhered to the specific rule that it must in some way change the way…
