Our monthly indie game spotlight was so big, that I’m splitting it into multiple parts. If you would like to submit a game for a future one, please get in touch.
This year saw the release of two games: Wargroove and Fell Seal: Arbiter’s Mark that were designed to emulate the classic games of Advance Wars and Final Fantasy Tactics respectively. I had a chance to play both, and in both cases I stopped caring about them within less than an hour of playing. Now, you may think that’s because I had major problems with them or hated the gameplay, but it was because they were just okay, and as we’re about to talk about, being okay isn’t enough anymore.
For this cast, I spoke with Michel who is the lead designer of the game Mondo Museum for a talk about bullfrog sims, management games, and how we’ll be running a museum.
Manifold Garden is the passion project of artist William Chyr who was inspired by MC Esher to create his first game. Seven years later and after a lot of work and struggles, the game is finally out; delivering an impressive game for puzzle fans.
