MEMOIRS OF A NOVELTY ACCOUNT VOL. III, ISSUE III When a coworker approached me about two and a half months ago asking if I would compose the music for his video game, I was skeptical. After all, I had never seen a serious development project. Upon looking into it, however, I discovered that his ideas are full of potential and his drive to get things done is exceptional. In other words, I fully believe in his project, and am helping to the best of my ability. Since I am (or was, sorry...) active in the AtariAge community, I thought that an announcement here might help the game gather some traction. I know you all appreciate the essentials of good game design, and some of you are even programmers yourselves. I can attest that my coworker is a competent programmer and a lot of work has already been done on the project, technical and otherwise. Although the scandal involving the Ataribox crowdfunding campaign had soured me to the idea somewhat, I believe this is an entirely different situation. We already have material -- whether we're going to reveal it, though, is up to the community and the amount of support we receive. I hold a deep respect for the moderators and users of AtariAge, and I trust that this can be a success for all of us. I am posting a link to the GoFundMe page for our game, "They Keep Coming". Please visit and consider making a donation, and also feel free to comment and ask questions. I will be sure to provide updates on this blog when it is pertinent. Thank you. https://www.gofundme.com/They-keep-coming
Over the course of the past generation of consoles (that includes Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 and to a lesser extent the Nintendo Wii,) indie games became extremely popular thanks to digital distribution services like Steam and creative initiatives like the Summer of Arcade on XBLA. I think at this point, it's fair to say that Indie games are here to stay. Although I played games like Fez, Limbo, Super Meat Boy, Braid, Hotline Miami and Bastion, there are several indie games I totally missed. Below, I'll share articles with some of the games I have played in case anyone's interested, but I'm more than open to suggestions and recommendations.And no, I haven't had a chance to check out Stardew Valley yet... I'll try to change that soon though. Top 10: Best Indie Games (Part I) - Top 10: Best Indie Games (Part II)
