Feature: Indie Megachat Ultrotranscript, Pt 3

Avellone, Vlambeer, Introversion On PC Gaming’s Future

All good things must come to an end. Weekends, guitar solos, and - yes - even seemingly unending conversations with a panel of thoughtful game developers. It is nature's way. And so we reach the third and final part of my chat with Obsidian’s Chris Avellone, Dreamfall’s Ragnar Tornquist, Vlambeer’s Rami Ismail, Introversion’s Chris Delay, and Redshirt’s Mitu Khandaker. This time we discuss clones, competition, diversity,…

Feature: Indie Megachat Ultrotranscript, Pt 2

Avellone, Vlambeer, Introversion On Kickstarter, Greenlight

The megachat continues! At the behest of many, I'm carving it into the Internet's unforgetting crystalline walls - one hefty chunk at a time - because mere ears could not withstand its relentless auditory onslaught. Last time, I gathered Obsidian's Chris Avellone, Dreamfall's Ragnar Tornquist, Vlambeer's Rami Ismail, Introversion's Chris Delay, and Redshirt's Mitu Khandaker to discuss what exactly makes each of them "indie" despite their exceedingly different…

Avellone, Vlambeer, Introversion Talk Meaning Of ‘Indie’

Let's try this again. Earlier this week, I posted the audio from a spur-the-moment indie megachat I put together during Rezzed, but its audio quality ended up a casualty of the fact that everyone at Rezzed never stops screaming. Never. The agony of existence. It is terrifying. So as a (probably much better) alternative, I'll be posting a transcription over the next few days. If…

Feature: What Is Indie?

Avellone, Vlambeer, Tornquist, More In INDIE MEGACHAT

Update: embedding fixed, and download links provided! Rezzed was a time of magic and wonder. Indie developers of all shapes and sizes mingled with fans and each other alike, and it was nearly enough to make us all forget that we were trapped in Birmingham. Honestly though, it was a pretty strange scene. I mean, on one hand, there were devs like Vlambeer and Introversion…

Vlambeer Tease With Space Murder Prototype

Vlambeer's trailer for Space Murder (below) suggests that the name is "still temp title" and I hope that's not true, because the world needs a game called Space Murder. For now, at least, it has one, with Vlambeer releasing a flash prototype of their (previously abandoned) lo-fi space exploration game just here. Nothing all that special - a mixture of space exploration strategies and arena…

Vlambeer’s Luftrausers Locks On To PC

Uh-huh. Yep. Right, yeah. That. OK, OK, I'll get to it in a second. Five more minutes, alright? Oh, sorry! I'm just practicing ignoring friends and loved ones, you see, because Vlambeer - they of everything from masterfully addictive Super Crate Box to spookily minimalist Yeti Hunter - have announced that they're dusting off flash project Luftrauser for a full, completely pluralized release in the form…

Razors In The Snow: Yeti Hunter

Not content to announce a game at GDC, Super Crate Box creators Vlambeer decided to release one during the show. Yeti Hunter is the second most unnerving game I've played today. Hopefully I'll have written lots about the most unnerving tomorrow but for now, if you feel you have too many nerves, you'll have to make do with this tiny slice of freeware horror. There…

WIT: Serious Sam – The Random Encounter

I wonder if many other publishers will follow in Devolver Digital's path of hiring a bunch of indie developers to create a smattering of tie-in games. I know there's the requisite Facebook/iOS game, but none has gone as far as those offering us Serious Sam 3: BFE next month (if they can stop delaying it). We've had Double D, and Kamikaze Attack. And now comes…

Boom: Serious Sam: The Random Encounter

Vlambeer's Serious Sam spin-off/remake/demake/upmake/downmake/JRPGmake Serious Sam: The Random Encounter was always a bit of a bonkers proposition. The gameplay trailer (below) hasn't really done much to change that perception. It is quite random. And it looks totally awesome. Vlambeer say: "The game'll launch on Steam & some other digital distribution platforms October 24th for $4.99. We're pretty damned excited, that's our first commercial release, I…

Cold Soarage: Luftrauser

Which browser game should you be playing right now?! Why, it's very rude of you to jump me with a question like that, but I do happen to know the answer. It's arcade shooter Luftrauser by Vlambeer, a flawless little bit of work that Vlambeer released "with massive losses... and at a high personal emotional cost", which was nice of them. Seriously though, play this…

Jurassic Farce: Dinosaur Zookeeper

Every time I visit the IndieGames blog I am rewarded. Just look at this- Dinosaur Zookeeper, which I've just spent the last twenty minutes playing and/or laughing in horror at, is a game from (I gather) the developers of Super Crate Box that tasks you with running a dinosaur wildlife park. Remember everything that went wrong in Jurassic Park? OK, it's your job to make…

For Serious: The Serious Sam Indie Series

Some congratulations are in order! Indie developer Croteam's Serious Sam series is, in a strictly metaphorical sense, pregnant, and about to give birth to three independently developed spin-off games. Croteam and Serious Sam publisher Devolver Digital today announced that they've given several smaller indie devs (including phenomenal Dutch pairing Vlambeer of Super Crate Box fame) the opportunity to make a game based on Serious Sam,…

It’s A Reel Good Time: Radical Fishing

You all downloaded and played Super Crate Box, right? Back when that came out I pored over Dutch developer Vlambeer's site to see if they had any other projects. They had better than "another project". They had a game called Radical Fishing, which as of today has been released in browser-game format. I think I'll just let this game speak for itself. You can play…

Living In A Box: Super Crate Box Released

It's out! Super Crate Box is out! Go skedaddling over to the site immediately and download yourself the finest and most frenetic freeware game we've seen all... month? Perhaps, perhaps. I've posted the trailer again below, just in case you missed me talking about this excitedly earlier in the week. Now you can talk about it excitedly yourselves! You know, the Disc Gun gets the…

Oh My Goodness: Super Crate Box

So it turns out you all need to put at least half an hour aside this Friday. Why? Because that's when indie freeware title Super Crate Box is released. Dutch devs Vlambeer sent us a preview build, and it's inspiringly competent stuff. You know condensed milk? Super Crate Box is like that, only with fun instead of milk. You can watch a video beneath the…
