Indie Game Gang: Jan Recap & Feb Game Announcement

Indie Game Gang | Gamerwife.com

Indie Game Gang | Gamerwife.com First off, I want to thank everyone who’s signed up for Indie Game Gang so far. I am genuinely blown away by the enthusiasm this project has been met with and I’m so excited for where this little community can go from here.

That said, I also have to apologize for being a totally crappy moderator. As much as I want to blame stress or other time management issues, the fact is I totally dropped the ball by not posting discussion topics when I said I would. I guess in a way I let my role as moderator overwhelm me and I got so stressed about providing good topics for discussion that I kind of freaked out and ended up only posting one discussion topic.

However, this whole thing is a giant work in progress and I can only say that I will do better in the future. I’m also making some changes as to how and where game discussion occur and making it clear that anyone can add a new discussion topic whenever they like.

And so, with that out of the way I’d like to announce the next Indie Game Gang game:

The game for February is:

Pony Island | Indie Game Gang | Gamerwife.com From the Steam Store page for the game:

Pony Island is a suspense puzzle game in disguise. You are in limbo, trapped in a malevolent and malfunctioning arcade machine devised by the devil himself. The devil detests having his puzzles solved and poor programming exposed; you will need to think outside the box to proceed and you will be insulted when you do.

So, basically, if you thought The Beginner’s Guide was weird… hold onto your hats boys and girls. Things are about to get freaky.

Average playtime to finish the game is around 4 – 7 hours depending on whether you’re trying to 100% it or not. Currently it is $4.99 US on Steam.

Discussions will begin on February 8, but if you have something to say before then (or after, for that matter) feel free to create your own discussion topics in the Pony Island sub-forum. I forgot to create a sub-forum for The Beginner’s Guide, which is why the discussions for that game happened in the General Discussion forum, but from now on each game will have its own sub-forum available in the right hand side of the Discussions tab.

Join us, won’t you?

    I can already foresee myself getting so frustrated because I can’t figure out what to do! This might have to be my Friday night game so I can at least ease the pain with a few wines 😛

    Looking forward to discussing it!

      I think that’s sort of the point, but please feel free to reach out in the discussion group if you get stuck. I’m sure you’ll find lots of people to commiserate with.
