I can't decide if it's good luck or bad for the Steam summer sale to emerge from the undergrowth just as you're about to launch your new game - though it's almost certainly bad luck if you decide not to join in. Developers Two Tribes - Rush, Edge - did join in with the festivities, slashing 34% off their new game Toki Tori 2+ from its first day of appearing on Steam. If you missed the birdy metroidvania's daily deal, however, the good news is that Two Tribes have extended the savings for the entirety of the Steam sale, which runs until the 22nd of July.

At GDC, we spend most of our time ogling industry legends and running madly from one amazing talk to another—but what we don't always get time to do is see lots of indie games, except in passing, and we're running so fast they're all red-shifted and wrong. Thankfully, the Indie Mixer allows a chance to quickly experience lots of games without the commitment of a single embarassing preview—a bit like speed dating as opposed to getting set up by a mutual friend.
So, here's 20 of the unreleased games on show last night with a snap judgement on each one to show that we don't mind reviewing betas, alphas, or even epsilons. You can see more about these games and the ones we didn't get to try at the event's official website.
