>What in the fuck is this
/indie/ is the general for all indie games, such as LISA, Yume Nikki, OFF, Bastion, Machinearium, Braid, Limbo, Axion Verge, Guacamele, The Desolate Hope, Sonic Dreams Collection, Doritoe Galaxy, etc.
Mobile or consoles, flash or unity, freeware or early acess. This place is a home for the indie game community and indie games that don't have a home. So be free to talk and share all your hidden gems, forgotten games and starving devs here.
>Can I talk about games that already have a general?
We mostly discuss games that are not popular enough for their own threads (since they have no other home in /vg/), however, all indie games are allowed. So talk about them if you want, but don't overdo it since you already have other generals for that.
>How can I contribute?
All we need right now is people to talk about their loved indies, so don't be afraid to post, bump and reply your fellow anons. Also we're looking for anons to make new pastebins/wikis/images and update the ones already made. Besides that, don't forget to play our !!!!GAME OF THE WEEK!!!! and other indie games to have lots of joy and to make more discussions to our general. And please give lots of feel, love, kind and nice to everyone.
>WHERE ARE THE GAMES
See our !!!!!GAME OF THE WEEK!!!!! in the next post.
Also this pastebin: http://pastebin.com/ZbG0JPSn
-Do more wikis/images/pastebins (Platformer, Shmups, First-Person, Mobile, Flash/Browser based, etc) and update them to not overwork the Compendium anon
-Create an easy way to know about upcoming games, ludums, jams and comps (aka make News more useful)
-Pray for the return of TIGDB
The !!!!GAME OF THE WEEK!!!! is...
>The Curse of Issyos by locomalito
"Defkalion was fishing on a quiet blue sea when he heard the voice of the Goddess Athena. Hurry up, she said, the isle of Issyos has been cursed by the Olympus. And so, fearing for his daughter and only family left, the fisherman sails back to his home, where the adventure is about to begin"

And remember: you are free (and encouraged) to talk about all indie games here, but make an effort to try the !!!!GAME OF THE WEEK!!!! so you can be like all our cool, popular and decent sized senpais
starting a 40 since muffet is kinda furry i guess
+50 cuz OC
I am not sure if this count as croped porn since this is literally the entire image but...
Feeling under the weather lately, so I thought this pic fitted nicely.
Shantae. Don't even play the game, but I know she'd get a truckload of porn.
Eyes from NT - his jab, tilts, aerials and his dash attack would be shovel-based.
Side Smash: Bazooka.
Up Smash: shovel.
Down Smash: idkshould it be shovel related?
Special: to pick yet.
Up Special: he shoots under his feet for a third jump like the Mii Gunner because I suck at being original.
Side Special: he walks and shoots his pistol as many times as you press the button, the projectiles deal more damage and stun longer as you get closer.
Down Special: works as a reflector.
His Final Smash would be him getting surrounded by enemies from the game who start shooting at him who reflects all projectiles and missiles against his foes.
hmm, I thought Ib was the game of week, when are we changing games of the week? I got like 2 weeks without coming here.
Started playing Ib and after Gary got into the party the game gets a little more interesting. The game has a nice atmosphere and is great so far to keep me into it.
Thanks for the recommendation /igg/
IT'S NOT FUCKING FAIR THAT BAYONETTA WON THE BALLOT, SHE IS NOT EVEN LIKED AT ALL
IT WAS RIGGED, UNDERTALE WON IT
I AM FUCKING SURE ABOUT IT
IF CLOUD A GENERIC ANIME SWORDSMAN THAT IS A LITARALLY WHO CAN GET IN THAN SANS CAN IN TOO.
hahaha, oh wow, someone saved my shitty sprite art
Fulcon Captial, the car from that new indie race game
this is honestly the only one i can see geting in i mean, its the only "relevant" indie game thats exclusive to a nintendo console
as for the moveset it a fucking car so it would be some thing like Fulcon punch and etc...
there is also
Steve from minecraft, minecraft is probrably the most popular indie game ever made and the game is on the wii u, if cloud can get in, than he is one of the possibilities
This game also have top tier husbandos
Where does Talbain rate on the furry scale. Lycanthropes and shit.
>Rando just wanted to see Brad again
Brad destroys his army and kicks his ass to save Buddy
10. Yotsuba deserves more than that though, surely.
Dude I'm already out of joy when I'm at Big lincolns.
I have only 3 diesel bombs and they aren't enough to kill him.
Mend is your friend.
Also, how the fuck did you not buy any Horse jerky from the bar or anything?And how did you waste 30+ joy over the course of the game? Maybe easy mode would be more of your liking anon.
Today I finished The cat lady game is little clunky,but overall it's really good if you like dark/depressing stuff I recommend it can't wait for the downfall remastered
The first game was rather easy man, at the end I had too many spare items.
I expected this to be like that so I didn't really give a fuck.
If only I didn't kill that cabinetfucker.
I played the joyful before easy mode and I had no problem with big L, just used 3 jerkys and a tp tea at the beginning
maybe I was lucky and maybe that's why I never got big l's appeal
Anyone got those Nuclear Throne Character Guides from a few threads before? This game is marvelous and I'm a shit strategist. Also Bump.
I hope the derelects will be secret bosses in that new FNAF RPG he's making.
>the downfall remastered
I don't think I'll be ready
Playing The Amber Throne right now
fucking love the game so far.
also, do you guys have some drawing request?
I am trying to learn how to drawn (pic related) so it would be kinda helpful
Not the same guy, but I have some Batter and LISA literally related stuff.
I made this a long time ago.
>kid from IWTBG
>outdated Newgrounds mascot, Salad Fingers
>Electroman from Electroman, WOW
>literally who characters from a dev circlejerk no one cares about
Like every single "indie smash bros" game out there, it looks like it's mostly a dev circlejerk. I'm not even asked for the likes of Batter and Brad to be included, but where the fuck are Shovel Knight or Shantae? Who are all these fucking people?
>tfw no crazy Desolate Hope-esque battle system
You're probably going to save yourself a lot of time using a guide. You don't /have/ to, of course, but some of them are so arbitrarily difficult that you're honestly better off getting one.
I am not sure if you are ok with it but I added some undertale to the mix
also, i a had a hard time doing the Batter, i am sorry if he ended up being bad.
>Take Joy in the first turn
>Second turn he spares you
>Then he offers to either kill one of your friends (its random I think?) or cuts your arm off
If you somehow got him on a Genocide run tell me how the fuck you did that
speaking of Buzzo, what are some good movesets for him?
i tried a adamant life orb set but i am always getting fucked up by a Choice scarf Sweatheart
should i just go with a mega Brad Armstrong or should i stay with Buzzo?
Okay so I've got Brad, Olan, Nern and Percy. Everyone's pretty much LV 20.
I lost some of my better party members to Undyne's spear throwing section.
Anyway, is Omega Flowey supposed to be this hard? I'm having a lot of trouble with his flamethrower attacks and his friendliness pellet shit.
I'm stuck real bad on La-Mulana. I've been hitting this game hard for the last week but I'm losing steam quickly and burning out. At this point I'll play every once and awhile until I figure something out again. My biggest mistake was although I took screenshots of so much dialogue and so many tablets, I did not put the effort to group together words and terminology. At this point I'll have to re-explore every level and record another set of maps but with how much the world has changed since I started the adventure I could be missing out on a lot of information that is inaccessible now. I might just restart from the beginning.
I'm going to take some downtime and start a game I've wanted to play for awhile- LISA.
>Already talking about tier lists
I got the one for steroids.
It was the reason I got gud as him
but don't pick up lucky shot it's still shit
/indie/, help me blow $90 on the Steam sale.
Spelunky, Halfway for a pixel version of linear X-Com, Cargo Commander, Intrusion 2, Papers Please, Prison Architect, Rogue Legacy, Skullgirls and Transistor should be good enough for ya.

I remember someone saying "just report and wait for mods" when he got in an argue
What about Antumbra, the Dark Souls of flash games?
Everyone says there will be no hype for HL3 but i am gonna tell the truth the second that shit gets announced my dick is gonna go farther then the voyager could ever go.
Can't wait to stop being shit at this game so I can finally unlock him. So far I've been making the most headway with Melting, only made it to the middle of Junkyard. I'm ashamed of not using abilities as much as I could. Corpse Explosion is useful as fuck.
>tfw i unlocked him yesterday after weeks of suffering
Then i got
fistfucked by the nuclear throne
Don't play with Melting for fuck sake, he is the opposite of an easy character
Oh yeah, Melting really fucked me over upon realization of his measly as fuck HP. But playing it safe is always a fun experience although tense. Corpsesplosion really helps clearing enemies and having Rhino Skin makes me happy as fuck.

Can someone here fucking help me?
>just finished LISA
>no clue what happened afterward
>weird cryptic conversation about joy and a stinger that went completely over my head
>never found out what happened with Brads sister or who lisa was (although I think I got spoiled on this but still)
>never found out fucking anything about marty or who buzzo is and I could barely piece together who had shown up in flashbacks and who hadn't
I know I'm going to get called an idiot, but I'm honestly usually pretty good with this sort of this. Is all this explained in the second game or did I just miss a lot of shit?
The whole Marty and Lisa thing comes from the first game, most people say it's some sort of edgy Yume Nikki and that you are better off just reading about it rather than playing it.
Also, Buzzo is the leader of that Joy gang.
It's a freeware game, that's sort of like edgy Yume Nikki like the above anon said. It's tedious, and doesn't have much enjoyability to it.
The story's basically that after the death of her mother, Marty started to sexually abuse Lisa. In the game Lisa realizes that even if she runs away from home, the trauma of the abuse will forever stay with her, and she commits suicide
Brad's sister is Lisa, who committed suicide in Lisa the First to escape Marty's sexual and emotional abuse.
Buzzo is one of Brad's students from the flashback, and he was in love with Lisa.
After Lisa's suicide, he went to Brad's dojo to wreck the place, but Dusty/Rando was in there at the same time, and he got his face shredded off with a power saw while trying to stop Buzzo
27/12 to 31/12 is almost a week. Also /indie/ takes a lot of time to be archived, it's better to do a new weekly game two days before the date than do it five days late.
It's not new year here yet, so happy new year, everyone. /indie/ will live forever.
Oooh, that game looks cool. I think I'll probably wait for it to get a little cheaper though.
Almost everyone is a Literally Who. Also, why is Salad Fingers there? As far as I know, he was never in a game.
If they were going to have Newgrounds games, they should have put in SimGirl or Alien Hominid.
Did you get the vaccine from Alphys?
>not looking forward to Kubo and the Two Strings
Wait, I don't get that last part. Did Flowey try to nab Frisk's soul, showing that all that effort trying to reform Flowey didn't work?
About 850 Lisa pictures here:
>no option to play as a girl that defeats monsters by letting them rape her
What's wrong with it?
Most joy addicts suck with no joy.
>The story's basically that after the death of her mother, Marty started to sexually abuse Lisa. In the game Lisa realizes that even if she runs away from home, the trauma of the abuse will forever stay with her, and she commits suicide
It's actually not too bad to play, doesn't have too much in the way of secrets, but it's nice to see what kind of the things the various Marty's have to say. A part I liked was that one Marty asks you for a banana, and he says he'll give you something nice in return.
All you get from him is a banana peel.
Do you guys think Buzzo knew about Marty's abuse? He calls Brad a murderer, and seems to place all the blame on Brad instead of Marty.
He also says something about wanting to blame anyone but himself.
like to think that Lisa asked Buzzo to kill Marty for her (since she kills Tricky Rick multiple times with things like plastic bags and pills in her mindscape), but he chickened out.
I was going to make something special for the new year but my PC with my drawing program just died. Have this instead.
Commando from RoR for invulnerable tank/some effects
Brad definitely for DPS and Status effecits
Main guy from Braid for time manipulation
Hermit from Artifact Adventure for support with healing items (she gets a wicked boost with all items) with all the healing artifacts used
I'll give you a shortcut:
>A mutation about manipulating drop chances:
Bunny Paw or Back Muscle
>A mutation about depleting ammo to manipulate drop chances and dish out dps
Stress if you picked B.Muscle, if not Trigger Fingers would do
>A mutation about weapons
Bolt Marrow or Shotgun Shoulders pretty much made for T.Fingers, if not Laser Brain or Recycle Gland would do with Stress. Long Arms weapons only fit in if your character really synergizes with melee weapons.
>A mutation for safety net
Boiling Veins or Strong Spirit enters the scene here. You better grab one of those before 3rd stage. If you can't get either of them Rhino Skin would do.
>A mutation for area control
If you have Rhino Skin it's Sharp Teeth, if you don't; it's Impact Wrists.
>Mutations for restock
if you have a large area damage weapons like Sharp Teeth, Shotgun Shoulder pellets or high tier laser cannons with Laser Brain it's Blood Lust, if else it's Second Stomach
>Mutation for picking up stuff and/or mobility
Plutonium Hunger or Extra Feet helps on picking up stuff in time. However Hunger is favored since it synergizes with pickup fade crown. If you can't find either of them Hammerhead doesn't hurt to take.
If the game is intending to punish you in a certain way skirting by those punishments is detrimental to your own enjoyment of the game.
Difficulty and punishment are vital to making the game have "stakes". If the circumstances can't harm you in some way, then where is the conflict? Conflicts in stories are important.
Could we maybe not have bestial incest based on a rather unknown indie game?
I think that it sort of ruins the game in the sense that losing party members is part of the game, there's a reason that there's a lot of party members to play with. That and gambling with the resting spots loses it's risk if you try to save scum it.
Just do w/e you think will net you the most fun, I prefer dealing with my bad choices in games rather than try to fix them, if you don't like losing things or party members, you can just be a lil' scumbag.
isn't Misha a /v/ tripfag from the old 4chan days?
honestly i don't mind that much
Also if you are gonna post that video you should post the better one
Which is a shame, since the fighting system is easily the most entertaining part. The other parts of TDH feel like they should have needed more polishing and balancing, to make them less repetitive.
I'm gonna reach it. I need to reach it.
>Compared to the most well-known indie game of all time
replay the joyful while my dog has an anyeurism over other people being in the house
Forgot my pic!
Does anyone else feel like Nuclear Throne is too luck-based?
I don't think my lack of skill is the reason why I died in the very room I spawned in which was packed with enemies, a number of them being snipers.
There is a guy on /v/ making a game (pic related)
What do you guys think?
I try to make everything I draw seem like it would make a squeaky noise if you rub against it
Happy new year pals, lets hope this year gives us some really good shit like that OFF remake, eh?
Loli Frisk > Loli Chara
Apparently a anon told us Mortis said so on the forums he shared OFF on he was remaking it, can't quite recall what the forums name is, though he has been awfully quiet if what the anon said is true.
One can hope its not bullshit, eh?
I didn't realize it was actually her eye until I saw your post.
Like how the Main characters don't look like main characters
I'M REALLY FEELING IT
hopefully the flagship doesn't fuck my shit up again
Reposting from rougelike thread:
I'm looking for a good splunky-like platformer Rougue-lite, but with more legit RPG elements like leveling, stats, inventory, and gear.
I've found 2 games that seem to fit my preference, but I don't know which one is better. Catacomb Kids or Vagante.
If anything. Vagante seems to have a much more competent update cycle and has offline multiplayer, close to getting online, while Catacomb Kids seems to have literally had all it's updates be l8 and the game isn't really complete at all. Though they're both pretty damn steep in price (13 bucks for an early access Rogue-lite) so I'm still on the fence.
Something weird happened in Lisa the painful

>Where the fuck is Shocklord, why are you here
>In the split second after beating them when you see their sprite dissapear, i see the sprites of Terry, Carp and Shocklord.
What the fuck happened.
Everything else was normal.
Not in Pain mode btw.
>Rando wears a mask for unknown reasons
>When you remove it during the final confrontation, it results in an extremely painful revelation
>He has trained hard to make Brad notice him, becoming large
>Brad is the player character; ergo, Rando is a big guy for you
How deep does it go?
Lardy with the double AKs and Mouth Wide Open playing is right behind Sindy in terms of cool factor
Just bought it. I heard nothing but great things, and I already love the fuck out of the soundtrack.
Show me some screenshots /indie/
what are some indie games where i play as a bug?
Don't expect much, still on chapter one but for the most part, its just xcon in the sense of tactical turn based shooter with the usual bollocks like less than 50% chance to hit a enemy with a shotgun 2 feet away from you, classes and such aren't avaliable or selectable, the characters ya got are essentially the classes, ya start off with a bulky guy thats good with rifles, get a medic scout later on, sniper 3rd, fragile as shit guy but reloading is free and starts off with a really nice shotty, stuff like that.
Liek I said, don't expect much complexity in it, its fairly straightforward, but a good game nonetheless, just has the XCom kinda shit all tactical shooters have. Atleast melee is damm powerfull and the AP system they have is neat.
I played as 2 different characters but I still don't get it.
What am I missing seriously?
Postal dude. The edgy ultra-violent shooter game with pissing and cat silencers and shit. Not Portal. Really how new.
Though Valve's games are /technically/ all indie since they're self-published. It's stupid but it's the definition that allowed Rocket League to become the best indie of 2015 despite being backed by NVidia so.
Fuck it, post your levels, /indie/
Maybe, but still, never did quite understand why turn based tactical shooters like to base themselves on Rng so much, Im unlucky as shit, always, why should i or anyone else be limited by luck and not by tactical placement and tech development?
>dat messy hair when she wakes up
Arra is cute. CUTE!
I made this some time ago.
this is kinda of a /utg/ thing but i like you guys more.
how long do you have those guest codes if you buy a steam gift for a friend?
do they ever expire?
Hey, it could have been worse.
No, but you asked the same question last thread and didn't respond to the recommendations, so I didn't know whether you noticed them or not so I gave them again.
And now go and buy Brigador, it even supports modding already so you can literally help develop the game
>Playing as Eyes
>Finally get my way to the Frozen City
>Defeat the first few rooms

>Book it as he starts spamming beams and fire
>Oh fuck it's the boss
>Take my chances and run into warzone and take as much lives with my minigun before succumbing
I finally had a minigun. If I played it careful I could have gone so much further. Fuck that boss. This game can really fuck you over.
Thank you, Anon. A gift.
Yeah that's basically where the game has to end for the first few times, he is impossible to defeat without studying his attacks first for a couple of times, but when you kill him once it becomes way easier for some reason.
>Brigador looks weird
What's wrong with it? I think it's easily one of the best-looking indie games out there.
This, specially with YV
>playing as YUNG VENUZ
>the laser mutation
>mfw i can fuck anything with one shot
>i-it was a bad spawn, there was nothing I could do ;_;
Pic very related
Aren't you just on my piss list like white girl rhymes?
This nigger makes TOP tier freeware shit, one of the last of its kind.
Vagante is fantastic for me so far, coming from somebody's who favorite game is Spelunky. Catacomb kids is more ROGUE than Vagante maybe, when it comes to enemy/item interaction but I only played it for a few minutes. Maybe I praise it so highly because I got my copy for free but it's worth the EA bux, the devs do update it frequently and are nice guys.
I've got a spare copy I can give you a spare copy if you want it, bought it for someone else but they've already got it.
Get nuclear butt, scarier face, the weapon mutation and that mutation that lower your reload time each time you kill someone.
A lot of ammo mutations, but prefer POP POP mutations over ammo mutations.
Press right click and clean the map
When you have Strong Spirit, the next hit you take that would kill you reduces your HP to 1 instead. Once it procs, you have to beat the current level and reach full HP again to refresh it.
You can tell Strong Spirit is active when there's a halo over your head.
...Oh. Shit. I was going to say, given the way Brad acted at even the suggestion that
Sticky had touched Buddy, I didn't think Brad could have ever done that by himself. I guess I could see it happening if he was young and forced to drink and then do it by Marty.
