Gayyde: An Interview with the Developers.

 Indie Game Utopia is a gaming community I am very fond of. IGU just wrapped up their summer game jam and the winner is Ema la Yon with the entry of Gayyde! I had the enjoyable opportunity of interviewing the team. Gayyde by Ema la Yon The team of AUREXLEMANDARIN and Ema la Yon both made this game, described as a colorful platformer that uses gravity as the main mechanic. Since developers were only allowed to use a pallete consisting of colors from a pride flag, this game features a palette from lesbian pride. When asked if the game was pride based, this was Ema la Yon's answer: "I wouldn't really call it 'pride based' per say.  Although it features the lesbian pride flag as the palette, which is one of my flags and one of my prides, the game hasn't got an actual lesbian story/subtext. I would have liked to but I didn't have time to conceptualize it, especially since I lack the experience." Or simply... "hitting boxes and playing around with gra

Happy Foods!

 The disclaimer to this post is that this game is still in an early level design phase. With that said, I got to test the demo. Since it is early I didn't know how good it would be but I am fairly surprised and proud to say I enjoy it so far! The major plus I enjoyed was the physics, they make the game challenging but not too challenging. I can see how frustrating this game can be since the physics are very responsive. I heard the game gets constant updates as of now, try it out! Happy Foods by NitroAtari

Deep Down 2: Impressions.

 As a platformer, this is a fairly difficult game. Even once you get a hang of the mechanics of the game, one mistake can mess you up! Take the countless mistakes that I have made as proof of this. This is the type of game you want to keep playing though, and your eventual success feels amazing! Deep Down 2 by Nyunesu, EnriqueWR, BroduxBlue, Diemorth

Sokotetris

 A refreshing twist on the classic game of Tetris. I can confirm that this is tremendously harder than you would first think, especially after playing for a while. Give it a try an see if you can get the highest score! Sokotetris by Torreng Labs

Catsperience!

 Catsperince is a game that shows you just how difficult it can is to be a cat and have a human servant to bring you food. The catch is, that human servant has gone missing. Fear not because with magical catnip you can do anything your feline heart desires!! In Catsperience there are puzzles to solve, riddles to be...riddled and laughter to be had. Here are some screenshots of the game:   Catsperience is being developed by Black Vertigo  and in all honesty one of my favorite parts of learning about this game was the inspiration for the concept. The game is made in memory of the developers' first, very naughty, tomcat named Lord Mordant. I will let the trailer speak for itself, keep in mind that this is a naughty cat and you should be expecting at times some naughty humor. 8.7.3  

Deep Blue!

  This game was very enjoyable. The game is not over complicated, so really anyone could play it! It is also extremely impressive that this game was made in a fairly short amount of time yet still has all the features you would expect. 8.7.3 Deep Blue [LD48] by imphenzia

What Game Did I Buy?

 Before I answer that very important question, I do want to say that I am looking for a job and that can explain my absence of late. ANYWAY- back to the question! I bought a game on Steam, it is early in development but still entertaining... here is the game:  https://store.steampowered.com/app/1133120/Ecosystem/ I have a lovely screenshot of a naturally made creature  as well:  Now I am off to continue my job hunt! 8.7.3
