I've encountered several cool games in the past three days. Let's see what I can cover.
I took a look at Screenshot Daily, a site that showcases the posts from Reddit's screenshot Saturdays. As an indie developer myself I'm pretty damn humbled by how good some of these projects look.
I just think this is pretty.
Currently in development for PC and PS4.
Let Them Come
Let Them Come is not really my kind of game, but I was floored by the style. The player's face at the bottom of the screen distorts with fear and rage as baddies get closer to his barricade. The flashes of gunfire in a pitch black hallway illuminating the shambling masses. Wet explosions. Very effective.
Currently in development. PC, Consoles, Mobile.
The Beginner's Guide
From David Wreden, the writer of The Stanley Parable. The Beginner's Guide "tells the story of a person struggling to deal with something they do not understand."
I know literally nothing besides the trailer, but I loved the TSP and the premise they lay out here. It's $10 on Steam.
Games are awesome, and there are more of them than it's possible to keep track of.
