Sword and Sworcery is one of the most anticipated indie games of this year and one of the iPad games ever. We catch up with Craig D. Adamsand talk about what we can expect when it releases.
Somewhere in the wilds of Canadia, a country in the faraway north, indie developers banded together to create a kind of arcade machine the world had never seen before. The Winnitron 1000 is a totally indie arcade machine, free to play, that downloads and updates with tons of indie games and worldwide scoreboards.
The best part is that anyone who wants to build a Winnitron can do so and get the software to run it for free! We talked to a couple of its creators to find out how it's changing the indie scene and why every town should have one. Built by you.
Supergiant Games' Upcoming Bastion is a at the same time a retro-styled RPG and one that breaks new ground. Greg Kasavin talks to us about what we'll see in Bastion, and more importantly, what we'll hear with it's innovative narrator system.
