MindSeize kickstarter. Finnish guys doing a pretty cool looking metroidvania. It has my attention! :)
Let's see where it goes!

Also! Random older game recommendation in the same vein. I played Ghost 1.0 (and even completed.. how about that!) this pixel art scifi metroidvania a little while back. The followup MiniGhost didn't really catch me. But Ghost 1.0 certainly did.

What the Golf from Triband is out on now Apple Arcade. Also dropping (later) on Epic Game Store, (even later) Steam, Switch and what not.


Download the PC prototype here and try for yourself.

The prototype didn't really catch me from a pure gameplay standpoint. But much water has passed under the bridge since.

How Steam users see your game
A qualitative review of Steam
I am an indie game developer with 1 game on Steam and another coming out soon. I struggle to market my games. I have read tons of postmortems and spent hours digging through my Google analytics, my own Steam sales data, and sales charts for other games on Steam Spy. But I am still clueless as to how to sell my game on Steam. And when I am setting up a new store page I am completely clueless as to what to put in the Short Description field and which screenshots to pick.

So I decided to undertake a different type of research project. I dove into the murky, messy world of qualitative research.

ATONE: Heart of the Elder Tree. Looks pretty nice! Not sure about the rythm mechanics is the best fit. Maybe!

Felix the Reaper - October 17th on most relevant platforms. Played a demo years back. The puzzle gameplay didn't really catch my interest. But that was a long time. The visuals has been much upgraded over the years.
