http://youtu.be/tgrEHSWCr1c I know, I know. Charming indie platformers are a dime a dozen these days (sometimes literally, given the increasingly popularity of eye-popping indie bundles), but complaining about that is akin to lamenting that the Internet has too many adorable videos of kittens. You may find yourself feeling somewhat empty after doing so. I assure you, that's perfectly normal. It simply means that you have no soul. So, right then. Pid's debut trailer very nearly charmed me into a state of jazz-infused bliss. It looks to be a light-hearted puzzle platformer with anti-gravity, tons of items, crazy stylish art, and the world's most amazing indie bait-and-switch. Time will tell, however, if developer Might and Delight - made up mostly of former Bionic Commando Rearmed folks - can make Pid more than just a pretty face. Here's hoping, anyway. In the meantime, check out the above trailer and judge for yourself.
If Kevin Costner plied the bloated oceans of the flooded Earth in Waterworld by swinging like some sort of watery Tarzan from a thin rope of energy, I could almost forgive the gills scene. Very almost. For the rest of us non-mutated folk, we'll soon get the chance to rope around waterlogged ruins in Energy Hook, an indie parkour platformer in development by the folks behind the satisfying swing mechanics of Spider-Man 2.

Publisher birthday parties are the best. Rather than forcing you to debate whether a $25 gift card is a crappy gift, publishers simply discount a bunch of games and tell players to have at it.

Their game--really a short demo--was A Story About My Uncle, a machinegun-less first-person platformer about a boy in search of his lost uncle. Today, the team announced that it founded Gone North Games, a new studio that will bring a full version of A Story About My Uncle to Steam in 2014 with the help of Coffee Stain Studios, developer of Sanctum.
The revival of an ancient text adventure, a demade Johann Sebastian Joust, a Bionic Commando-esque NES game and Commies on Venus - we're through the looking glass, people. The '80s has successfully infiltrated all of indie gaming. The '80s is out there. It can't be bargained with. It can't be reasoned with. It doesn't feel pity, or remorse, or fear. And it absolutely will not stop, ever, until you're wearing an ironic Thundercats t-shirt. So I say: give in. Don a Zack Morris-style denim shirt, wear a giant clock around your neck, and recite this mantra: "Greed is good. Greed is good. Greed is good." Now let's have a look at some shamefully free webgames...
