GDC 2013: 18 indie games in 50 words

Citizens of Earth

Citizens of Earth

You're the Vice President of the world. You recruit regular townsfolk like the doctor, baker, teacher and so on. You then take them to JRPG-style battles, where they level up, which makes them better at their day job back in town. Has a cute art style and interesting premise.

Toki Tori 2

Toki Tori 2

An extremely-polished so-cute-you'll-vomit platformer that's the sequel to 2001's popular Toki Tori . Surprisingly, the developer's main reference is Metrovania, where you unlock ideas about the game as you go through it.

TowerFall

TowerFall

This was the most popular multiplayer game on the floor. Mingling Joust, archery and Smash Brothers, four players take part in a lethal shootout. With a neat replay after the final shot and a co-op mode, this will be hugely popular online when the netcode is sorted out.

Future Unfolding

Future Unfolding

Looking much like Oblivion's wonderful painted A Brush With Death , Future Unfolding is an impressionistic top-down roaming game where you explore a dangerous, beautiful world.
