THE DIG (Dojo of IndieGames): Issue 3
So... April Issue released in July? Let's address this and get it out of the way. It has been a crazy year, to say the least. It goes without saying why it has taken so long to finish this issue and get it ready for you all to read; the pandemic, personal predicaments, reflecting on important matters in the world like BlackLivesMatter. There have been more important things in the world, and I sincerely hope everyone has been able to get through this a better person.
Well, that was easy, now to get to what we all want to know about, those sweet IndieGames and what titles from April, you should be getting on your radar.
I ended the introduction of the last issue with “See you all on the moon”, who knew this would be so relevant. Our featured game of the month is Filament, a sci-fi game with a well-written narrative and an out of this world puzzle design. It will have you scratching your heads for days and leaning forward in your chairs to really focus on how to solve the challenging obstacles in your way. There is a game for everyone this month. Are Puzzles not your thing? Maybe you would enjoy building a colony in the harsh post-apocalypse that is Endzone: A World Apart, or even starting a self-autonomous tech company in Good Company where you fine-tune the production line. Nah, you are obviously much more into a good story with substance, something like the emotional journey of HEAL, or a political thriller The Flower Collectors.
It has been a great month for IndieGames of all types, and I can say it has been incredibly fun to play all these and write my thoughts in short reviews. Hope this helps you find that itch you’ve been scratching, there are gems enough for everyone.
Peace and Love
