Uh, my first taste of indie games would of been Minecraft and then I suppose it branched out to Visual Novels because of my love for anime and manga. Some of the Visual Novels I got into at first were for all audiences, my favorites in particular were, Cradle Song, Juniper's Knot and Dysfunctional Systems, all done by the same group called Dischan Media, though luck hasn't been on their side much... Some other Visual Novels I have played have been for more mature audiences... (Don't judge me! Dx) Besides that though there are a couple of more that I play that I'm not sure are made by indie game groups but they might be, who knows, once again they are for more mature audiences... (I have interest in this side of things atm...)
I played a lot of Visual Novels too! Now I got a little tired of it coz I always want the best ending in the first try so I usually use a guide... It takes a little of the fun away coz you are not being spontaneous but I loved the ending I got either way XD And don't worry, I wouldn't judge your interests, you can like whatever you want to like!
I know how you feel! I always want to get the best ending after playing a Visual Novel through after a number of times <.< I usually play it a dozen times or more to see where I can go by myself but afterwards I just seem to give into the guides and walkthroughs :/ It takes the fun out of personal discovery and achievement I find using guides and walkthroughs but the temptation is just so great to see the best endings ._.
You are right! I like to play indie games coz sometimes you end up with an awesome game! But even so, I really like the artwork of some indie games, even if the game itself is not so good, the artwork are awesome! The characters portrait in game or even some scenarios are really well made!
Of course! I don't know what your faves might be, but I WayForward's games like Shantae and Mighty Switch Force because they are pretty unique for the prices that they are! Also, Shantae is like the cutest character ever!
Sometimes, now more than ever, I wonder if games are fun anymore. Most just try to be the most detailed down to the very pores in a character's skin... ...we don't need that much detail in a video game.
Although it's not an indie (it was made by ubisoft) but it sure feels like it, I LOVE Child of Light! It's awesome! And I loved to play Road not Taken from Spry Fox. (Although it's a really sad game ;-; )
I also played Beyond Eyes, I liked the artwork and it was really fun playing it but the game itself lack a little purpose.
Well... I like to see how good the graphics are but I don't like it when the excess of details in graphics means they will spoil the whole plot, making a poor story...
I think I've hear of the other two, but I don't remember playing those. Road Not Taken sounds very familiar...
Artwork is definitely a killer for me, especially when they release an artbook with the game or with the Limited Edition versions. My wallet dies after that, lol. I have at least a hundred or more artbooks from video games or anime, it's kinda ridiculous! XD
Well, it kinda depends for the story too. I loved Heavy Rain and the excess of details of it really brought out the story, whereas an excess of details in something like Call of Duty makes no sense when you don't even get to LOOK at your own character, lol.
Road Not Taken is so cute ;-; sad but cute! (I think it's based on a poem too)
Yes! I have some artbooks too! I like it when, in the artbook, there is the World Map of the game! I am not good with directions but I like to see how the world was made for the story! And, I totally agree with you XD It does not make any sense! Hahahahahah
