Why can't cool doujin games with better sprite work get the kind of attention that Tumblrtale is getting? Doujin sprite work ranges from good, to amazing, way better than Western equivalents.

Why do Westerners have such shit taste?

I want my 2D Giant Mech platformers to make a return.

so, the thread gets pruned and your first idea is to make another thread with undermeme in the OP?
you know exactly what kind of shit that will attract, at least compare it to LISA or something, fuck m8.

That isn't a doujin game

It is. It's Gigantic Army, a game by Astro Port.

I don't even follow these games. I have no clue what any of these are. I just see that there's the "Indie flavor of the month". Western games with sub-par pixel art that get tons of praise. Yet much better Japanese equivalents are ignored.

There is no porn in it. It's not a doujin game

Doujin are just Japanese indie games. Some are eroge, some not.

1. Earthbound has a huge Western fanbase.
2. These games appeal to typical non-gamers and casuals by story, humor, etc. Not by gameplay. They typically ahve simple gameplay.

Run through the steam recommendation queue. Keep going through it. Keep going through it. Notice a pattern?

There's literally THOUSANDS of shitty platformers with every sort of variation. If you'd take off your weaboo vision glasses you'd realize there's just as many shitty indie games by doujin groups from japan as there are from the west. Asking for more is not the solution. YOU just need to go out there and find it. I guarantee it exists.

Wow, a sidescrolling game about shooting shit isn't getting attention and one of the few games of last year to show some real creativity is, who'd have guessed.

>Doujin sprite work ranges from good, to amazing, way better than Western equivalents.
Yesterday's quality western freeware is today's western $5-$20 dollars.

>I want my 2D Giant Mech platformers to make a return.
Why? There's probably hundreds out there. Have you tried Orbital Gear?
>>
>>323013313

I know they exist.

It's just that there seems to be "Indie flavor of the month". They all have these patterns:

>Western
>mediocre sprite work
>2D platformer or rpg
>"feels"
>socially progressive
>story heavy
>easy
>looks drawn by children
>>
>>323013773
orbital gear doesn't even come close to games like gigantic army or gunhound

More like a handful, and only a few of them were good. It was always a niche genre.
