I picked this indie title up for just $1 last year during the Steam Summer Sale and played a bit of it before being distracted by other things. After sitting in my Steam queue for a while I decided to pick it back up again and try to complete all of the Steam achievements. I'm very happy that I did.
This game has occupied my time quite a bit in the past few days. It's very challenging but never cheap. Super Laser Racer is a very well-balanced game. It's a bonus that the soundtrack is awesomely pumping techno as well.
Super Laser Racer is a top-down, 2D racing game in the vector-graphics style. Racers compete on a ton of unique tracks and can battle rivals using weaponry littered on the road along the way. It's a simple concept, but proven. And hella fun.
Super Laser Racer is worth the $5 base price. I'd recommend you go and buy it today. But, if you can't swing it or are waiting for a sale, add it to your Steam wishlist and Valve will email you when it's on offer.
Talk about cutting it close! Race The Sun's Kickstarter campaign was sitting at just over $17,000 last night with just under 10 hours to go. What a happy surprise it was to wake up to an email stating they made their goal of $20,000 and then some!
I'm really looking forward to this game. It's got a great visual style reminiscent of Star Fox for the Super Nintendo and the fast-paced gameplay of Sky Roads. Check out their Kickstarter video below if you haven't seen it yet.
The work isn't over yet for Flippfly. In fact, it's just beginning. Besides delivering the final product, they're working to get their game on Steam via Greenlight and the game also needs to launch with Linux and Mac support.
I've even heard whispers of an Ouya version on the horizon...
Fast, stylish, and endless. The premise is simple: race as quickly as you can towards the horizon so you can keep your ship powered by sunlight. Take too long and the sun will go down, leaving you in the motionless and in the dark.
Race The Sun is a full-blown version (including a fully-featured track builder) of the demo that was released, to much success, on Kongregate last year. In addition to their plans for making it onto Steam via Greenlight, they've also announced Race The Sun will be coming to Linux and maybe Ouya, as well.
There are only 10 hours left on their Kickstarter and all they're asking for is $20,000. They've already reached $17,000 as of this writing. Nail biting! I really hope they make it because I want to play this game.
The creator of Tainted Fate, Mladen Bošnjak, reached out to me today to ask if I'd feature his game in a Fund This Game post. I'm very happy he did since his game seems right up my alley and I'm sure that as a reader of my blog then there's a very good chance you'll find it worthy of a few dollars' support as well.
Tainted Fate is a survival horror game where you take control of two characters, each in their own specific time period. What you do in one time period affects the island and the story in the other. It's an interesting concept. The island itself is large and will feature many secrets, which I love in games.
The $3,000 he is looking to get as part of his IndieGoGo funding drive will help to purchase a new MacBook and digital camera to increase the quality of the final game. Take a look at his pitch video and fund this game!
I don't think it's a huge secret that I love indie games. I don't think it's a secret that I love Steam, either.
Up until yesterday, I had only voted on 37 games on Steam's Greenlight leaderboard. I decided to change that. I thought it would be work, but it's actually a game in itself: voting yes or no on whether or not I'd throw cold, hard, cash at a product if it came to the Steam platform.
My goal is to vote on every single Steam Greenlight game that's available. How many are there? I have no idea. How long will it take? I have no idea.
