Hello, hope we are all having a fantastic day! Lately I have been exploring how useful Discord is when you want to follow games in development! I still use all the other platforms but it is a good idea to add variety. Anyhow, today I am following a city building game and it is very early in development. The game in question is OpenSkyCity! The game was originally a class starting in January of 2020. Here is a video from their Youtube channel: I encourage you to follow them on Youtube. Here is their Discord server as well: https://discord.gg/MW7cR5M

Quills and Curios!

Image
 I am always on the lookout for new games to follow while they develop! This quote says it all about Quills and Curios: "Quills and Curios is a game revolving around managing a medieval fantasy general store. The player handles such tasks as appraising magical goods, engaging and making sales with customers, purchasing inventory stock and following storylines with characters whom they have made a connection. The goal of the game is to become the wealthiest merchant in town. However wealth does not always have to be monetary and resolutions can be found through means that do not involve riches of the coin purse." This is a game that is early in development although from what I see it is updated fairly often! Here is an invite to the Discord server so you can follow development with me! https://discord.gg/9ZCntb3Cru

United Assault

 Today I wanted to express my excitement for a console game that will be released mid-year. I traditionally do not post about console games on this blog but I felt an urge to about this one! United Assault is a WWII(World War Two) themed rogue lite. It is too early to give much info on the game, although I will share the Facebook page for the game.  https://www.facebook.com/UnitedAssaultGame/ 8.6.0

Akupara Games to Publish Clover Bite’s GRIME

Image
  Not too many stellar video games have hit the market, and I have to say I believe the recent pandemic is the culprit. That said, I still have a genuine interest in video games, and I have found a game that I fancy. " Announced at IGN’s presentation of Awesome Indies during Gamescom, Akupara Games will be publishing Clover Bite’s highly anticipated soulslike metroidvania, GRIME. Clover Bite projects that GRIME will launch sometime in 2021, with Steam being the only platform announced for now, with other platforms to be announced at a later date." Check out this link for the full article by Gamasutra! Point is, this game interests me and if you also love these types of games you should also be interested too. Here is the trailer just so you know what I mean when I say that I see something great. The fact that it is rendered in 3d is enough to make me curious! 8.5.5 Check out these websites to wishlist the game on Steam and learn more about Akupara Games! https://www.akupara

Windaug User's Manual

Windaug had just been updated, and it now includes a ton of new features as well as a new user's manual! 

New "Operating System".

 This application is still in development but I am already in love with the features it does have! I can see this becoming a nice little community and would love to see how the developers expand upon this fantastic idea! 8.0.3 Windaug 1.1 by Windaug

Game Updates.

Things are gradually starting to pick up again among those I follow on Itch, as I knew they would... maybe I need to follow more people. ANYWAY, here is some awesome games that have recently been updated. 8.0.3 Peculiar Farming - Post Jam Version by Arcus, daniel michaeloudis When has this game NOT been updated lately? Adventures of Yi Chapter 1 by Rail I am helping with the writing for this game...I came somewhat later on in development so I can't be given much credit for chapter 1, but it is a cool game! Xander the Monster Morpher: Universe Breaker by Karatkuro For the amount of content is this game, it is well worth the asking price and probably more as well.

An Update on Previously Talked About Games.

    A lot of the games we cover here tend to be alpha versions and just generally incomplete, and I love being able to bring attention the games because it makes me feel that I am helping them by allowing the potential for more feedback. These formerly incomplete games are now either fully completed or further fleshed out, and I'd like to show them off! 8.0.2 I do want to say that you are doing a great job  https://watabou.itch.io/ ! Watabou constantly updates all of their generators, and I encourage you to check them out! Peculiar Farming - Post Jam Version by Arcus, daniel michaeloudis This game I covered a while ago and it has been update to version 1.03 at the time of this post. Everhood by EverhoodDev This game I also covered a long time ago, a free demo is out on steam so check it out! D&D Map Sketcher by daniFM This tool is also on my "checklist". I believe they have a Patreon now, check it out! Retro Space Ball by RikOclon Rik is a good friend of mine

A Look Into the FUTURE.

Today I am going to take you guys into the…FUTURE! You read that right, the future. By that I mean we are going to look at the prospect of a game. I am doing this because the game looks extremely interesting to me, and I believe it would be something my audience would enjoy as well. Even though the game is in extremely early stages, I still managed to contact the developer and find loads of juicy information to share. The developer in question is Martynas Antipenkovas. Martynas is a developer from England and the game in question is titled “Lurking Behind” and will be released as a proof of concept/ a technical demo, not a full game experience. Martynas   has taken a tremendous approach to making this game in my opinion. Martynas is focusing on programming initially and once that is completed only then will he focus on the artistic portion of the game. I think this is great for many reasons, to use his words: “This should help me avoid making unnecessary assets which are alread

Let's Take a Look at Astral Game Studio!

Image
  I usually only look at indie games, although it is very interesting to look at the studios as well! I do not do this as much because the studios are typically too busy making the games themselves, which makes it easier for me to go over said games! Occasionally I will come across a welcoming studio, and in this post that studio is Astral Game Studio out of Brazil! This studio, which is headed by Leonardo Lindoso,  is fueled by a long growing passion for game development shared with other team members! As indie game development studios often do, game jams were the start for Astral Game Studio, but this was not the end by any means! After months of hard work, and games like “Fix this, dude.” And “Inkreatures, the studio is working on their biggest project to date: “Asyren”. It is not easy by any means for a six person game development studio to make such great game, but they are doing a great job! If you want to get the full story I will include the interview after I sha

Creator Crate: Game Update!

Image
A post I did a while back detailed this game in an earlier stage of development. The game itself is about an experimental 3d printer (you!) that is able to throw objects, grab them and use their matter. You are doing all of this while humans are trying to hunt you down and will exhaust any technique possible to do so. This can be deploying gadgets as well as making use of various other surprises! Creator Crate has recently released a new PC demo on Steam, and I think you will be impressed. You can also wish list the game on Steam, and doing so would be something I recommend. CreatorCrate on Steam CreatorCrate is a roguelike 2D platformer about an escaped appliance that can eat and reproduce items. In the game, you make, throw, and manipulate physics objects to overcome challenges and survive. You must fight or evade intelligent humans and robots that are trying to track you down.
