Dawn of the Ronin
Man this game is beautiful. A lot of non-hipsters complain that indie games are always lame pixel side-scrollers, but Dawn of the Ronin is a pretty badass side-scroller with strikingly beautiful visual effects. The whole game is based on a contrasting silhouette art-style where all the moving components and characters are nothing but shadows, but the backgrounds are gorgeously rendered scenes that help bring atmosphere and a sense of geographical character to the game's play scape. I think that x35mm has done a fantastic job of combining the fast-paced hack-and-slash genre with ronin fantasy. The game seems reminiscent to a lot of Vanillaware titles such as Murasama: The Demon Blade or Odinsphere. Also, the background and art-style of the game really does fit the title Dawn of the Ronin. Such a beautiful game.
