Its that time again, PitchYaGame round 3 and OMG has it grown tremendously from last month. Truly amazing how many participants there are. Made my job this time around that much harder. So first of all let me start by saying how incredible some of these games and pitches were. Also important to note, I am ONLY including games that were posted within the PYG designated time. So if you posted after the deadline I will not be mentioning those games and to be honest, I may have flat out missed your game (sorry if that's so). This is because there were already so many to go through and I have to be fair to the rules. Granted some people found out the day of or maybe after, but that's okay, you will have the chance during round 4 to make it on time and the rounds coming every month after that. PYG isn't slowing down anytime soon so be sure to submit your pitches!! Now the moment you have all been waiting for, MY PYG Round 3 picks!
I want to cover Screenshot Saturday anytime I am able, this week I am able so let's get into it!
As a game developer I love to see other people's projects, and though I haven't seen myself as good enough to participate in a game jam, this may be the turning point for me. There is a game jam specifically for games made in Gamemaker Studio, which is the engine I am using to make my current game and I have been learning a lot! That being said, I missed this jam so I will have to catch the next one, but that isn't going to stop me from enjoying the games that were submitted. So here are 10 games from GM48 that caught my eye. (There will also be an audio podcast of this on Indie-cent Exposure podcast available on Spotify)
So before I start this, please don't sacrifice me to the indie-game Gods for not including games like Celeste and Undertale. The this list is NOT a list of the "best indie games ever made" This is my list. A list of mainstream indie games that I enjoy and put the most time into. I will be doing a list of lesser known indie games that I enjoy that usually won't make and "top" lists but that I believe are worth playing. I also mostly game on Playstation, so though these games are most likely available on other platforms, they are all available on PS4 as of now.
"PitchYaGame is an exciting new platform (live on Twitter) for indie developers and game developers to tweet about their game/s and be heard.
