EGX 2015: The Leftovers (Part 3)

Our round-up of the games we couldn’t fully review at EGX concludes today!

NATURE’S ZOMBIE APOCALYPSE

NZAsloth

Zombie Shoot-’em-up. Except you aren’t a human. You’re an adorable animal, like a turtle, shark, seagull or lion. Seriously, this is awesome.

RIOT

large2

A riot-’em-up. Literally. From a crowd dynamics perspective, this is a very interesting little thing with a satisfying graphical style.

PERLINOID

Konzept-3_Wurzelwasser

A colour and shape-based puzzle game, with quite a deep storyline. Seriously, another one on my “going to bankrupt myself with all these game purchases” list.

IRONCAST

IroncastBattleModeScreenshot

Bejewelled meets Steampunk Mecha. Yeah, you heard me. Go play it. Remenicent of The Bureau of Steam Engineering. Go play that, too.

SIGMA THEORY

sigmatheory

Pandemic meets Plague. Inc. meets International Spying meets Science.

MASQUERADA

D&D meets Final Fantasy meets Time Stop from D&D3.5.

BEYOND FLESH AND BLOOD

034957

COD Zombies if it was set in Manchester after a nuclear winter. So, COD Zombies if it was set in Manchester (don’t hate me!)

MUSHROOM 11

1b09887f0c411d799054a9d30644e61a7a3def6c

Destroy yourself to grow new things. You’re a fungus with constant volume. Solve Puzzles. It’s hard to explain.

SUPER RUDE BEAR: RESSURECTION

c8a6e06867518f8c

Super Meat Boy with lasting corpses. So if you get stuck and die a lot, it becomes easier. Also, there’s a lot more “WE HATE YOU” from the game than SMB. It’s good.

KAIJU PANIC

HUD_Mockup_01

Tower-defence fun. Kill various Kaiju and protect your people. Very cute and adorable Kaiju.

BETWEEN HEARTBEATS

Float around the body, killing pathogens and healing lesions. Sounds simple? It’s horribly hard. But so fun!

REPLAY: VHS IS NOT DEAD

Screen_Pirate_4

Puzzle-platformer, with the ability to rewind time. Kind of like Braid, but in an 8-bit 80’s era style and VERY different in terms of the story. Another one on my “must get” list.

GOOD ROBOT

Randomised 2D shooter; float around levels with randomised weapons (want a homing bouncing sawblade firing cluster missile? That actually exists in this game). One caveat: you can be hit by your own weapons. Still, it’s a fun little game. On the list!

Well, that’s just about it, from the business cards I gathered at least. Hopefully this gives you a flavour of what’s coming in the indie scene in the next year or so!

Now after three days of coverage, I’m off to hide from Disney’s lawyers and the city of Manchester.
