In case you missed it, the IGF entries were announced earlier this week, and DrinkBox has entered two games this year: Mutant Blobs Attack and Guacamelee! There were a record breaking number of entries this year (570!).
Some titles we are particularly excited about from friends of DrinkBox:
Chasing Aurora by Broken Rules is an awesome new game which we got a chance to play at PAX earlier this year. Super fun competitive multiplayer.
Go Home Dinosaurs by Fire Hose Games, a very cool tower defense style game from the makers of Slam Bolt Scrappers which we were also fortunate enough to try at PAX this year.
The already released I Have 1 Day, Villainous, and the upcoming Bullet Audyssey from Cellar Door Games are all fantastic games. Teddy Lee, one of the designers at DrinkBox, worked on these.
Retro/Grade by 24 Caret Games, our neighbours at PAX, are trying to get players to dust off their old Guitar Controllers for this new rhythm / shooter game.
The playable Sissy’s Magical Ponycorn Adventure by Untold Entertainment, made in a weekend at a Toronto game jam, has captured our hearts.
Super T.I.M.E. Force by Capy is a mysterious new title from our Toronto neighbours that has a very cool art style, and allows players go back in time and mess with history to “make the world a better place for you and me”.
They Bleed Pixels by Spooky Squid Games and music from DJ Finish Him (aka Shaun Hatton) is a bloody action platformer with an awesome pixel art style.
And last but not least, Yeti (downloadable and playable from that link) by Metanet Software (of N and N+ fame) is an adventure game where you indirectly manipulate a Yeti, taking it out of it’s natural habitat and putting it into the bizarre world of humans.
Good luck to everyone!
