There are three brand new indie games currently available for gamers to check out for PC, including a gorgeous combat racing title, an old-school point-and-click adventure title and an open-world action game.
While a lot of indie games have gone the route of Kickstarter or Indiegogo, I imagine a lot of gamers may tire of dealing with all the hand outs. In this particular case, there is no handing out required because these games are done and complete and you can pick up digital copies of these titles right at this very moment. That's right, there's no need to pay people to make the games you want to play, you can just pay them to play the games you might want to play.
The first game on the list is Gas Guzzlers, a new-age competitive, combat-racing game that lends itself to a mix of Twisted Metal meets Need for Speed 2. The game is a gorgeous attempt at bringing high-end visuals from the AAA category into a more affordable, budget-priced package. Did I mention that the game looks gorgeous? Yeah, well it does. In addition to the eye-splittingly good graphics the game also sports multiple terrain types for both dusty off-road races as well as pavement-based asphalt runs. You can customize your vehicle's livery as well as its powerful array of destructive arsenal using a very in-depth vehicle customization feature. This game may not break new territory but it definitely seems to aim to bring back some nostalgia-based arcade combat to the PC platform. You can learn more by visiting the Official Website.
If you enjoyed classic point-and-click adventures from the Golden Era of gaming, games such as LucasArts' Full Throttle or Day of the Tentacle, or perhaps the old Laura Bow games from Sierra Interactive (now Vivendi Universal), then you will probably dig Wadjet Eye and xii Games' latest release, Resonance. The game takes the old-school 16-bit art-style to new heights with a colorful adventure that involves multiple playable characters identical to Maniac Mansion where each character has to exercise their own skill set to help solve various puzzles and unravel a story involving a particle disruption device and a secret lair. If this sounds like your kind of adventure, where smarts, wit and a bit of cunning humor underlie the progression of the plot, then feel free to learn more at the Official Resonance Website.
Tiny & Big: Grandpa's Leftovers
Here's an inventive new title that sets itself apart from every other game out there by simply being something different. Tiny & Big is an oddball 3D adventure from Black Pants Game Studios where you play Tiny, a guy who has his only family heirloom stolen (i.e., fine rib underpants) by his arch rival Big. What follows is a sweeping adventure across a vast desert where Tiny uses a grappling hook, a laser cutter that cuts through anything and physics to manipulate the environment. This game is simply off the hook and combines a bit of Ratchet & Clank with Psychonauts to give gamers a truly fascinating gaming adventure. The added utilization of clever platforming tricks and an amicable art-style to tell the story helps round the game out. Be sure to at least check out this game's Official Website to take a look at the very slick and comically delightful launch trailer.
