Indie



Hey guys! Since new posts are a little bit rare, I won’t shy away from making a post specifically about my article on another website, especially since it’s a review of a half-indie adventure game. The game in question is called Hector: Badge of Carnage, it’s currently the rudest, filthiest game on the market, and you’ll find its review on the wonderful International House of Mojo – home to all things that were cool about past LucasArts, and have moved on to their modern off-spiring (companies).

Let’s break for a moment from the usual indie adventure games’ reviews for a different kind of indie. The thing is VVVVVV is such a perfect game to write a concise opinion piece about – the powerful main concept defining its gameplay is as simple and sharp as its title. Basically, VVVVVV is a platformer in which you can’t jump, you can’t shoot, you don’t use any power-ups, but instead, regardless of where you are, you can always switch the source of gravity from what’s beneath you to what’s above you et cetera and vice versa!

It’s time to dust off your old school books and brush up on your Latin and Greek mythology, because we’re going to play a game that closely follows the story of Ulysses as related by Homer’s Odyssey, in a faithful retelling of the epic.

Or so it would seem at first glance.
