THE BEST GAMERS - THE BUZZ
GENERIC PLATFORMER COMING SOON!
DARKGAMER6669 - Remember that stupid indie platformer with a single gimmick carrying it? Maybe I should be more specific... remember that stupid indie platformer with one gimmick that was announced almost 5 years ago? It's finally almost coming out soon maybe?
When the terrible indie game movement started with Braid, everyone wanted to make their single gimmick platformer too. Fez was a game that stole a gimmick from that one Mario game and everyone wet their diapers about when they first saw it. Five years ago.
The thing with indie games though, hype doesn't die down. If your shit game is taking an obnoxious amount of time to finish despite it looking exactly how it looked when you first started, that's a sign of promise. Super Meat Boy looked done the first month it was showed off but the creators needed two years to wave it around and build hype.
There's no official date since hipster indie game creators can't conform to a schedule or to actually working on a project consistently, but it does have an ESRB rating now. IGN will give it a 9.0, that is my prediction. All indie games score that much on IGN regardless of quality. If you're excited for another boring platformer with nothing interesting to offer, look no further.
