Indie Beacon – Peanut Butter and GMCJAM#14 – 20th of May, 2014
It’s that time of the month again!(That sounded better in my head…)
The Indie Beacon is doing a special issue this month, the Peanut Butter and GMCJam is, obviously, a look at the winners of the GMCJAM!
This time around Blake, Detective Pixel, DiptoMan are the amazing top three! Everyone who entered is a winner though! I got 20th place out of 44…
Blake – Eidetic
This is one of the best I have played so far! Not only is it beautiful to look at, it has good music, and the sounds fit perfectly. The memory mechanism is fantastic! You sir, may very well place in my top three!
Well it apparently placed in a lot of people’s top three! This game is very cleverly designed, with puzzles that are hard on the brain. Your character has the ability to store actions into a re-playable loop, then you can interact with the memory as long as it stays still. This makes for brilliant platforming! The graphics and music fit the game like a glove, I can see why this won 1st place!
Detective Pixel – Mind Therapy
A short game, but a very good one! I played it over at GameJolt before Alice Mode was introduced, but DP has since added it. It’s about a guy trapped in his mind, being tormented by bad memories of people making fun of his weight. At least, that’s what I got from it, I think the story is whatever you interpret it to be. I think it meets the Theme and Handicap. I’ll probably end up placing this in my top 3.
Again, my reviews are almost clairvoyant! I actually did end up voting this for third place, my Reviews were kind of all over the place… I’m glad DP got a top three, he always makes good games for the JAMs.
DiptoMan – John
This game is amazing. The art style, and subtle background music match the theme of the game perfectly. The flashes of memories are profound. It controls very well and very simply, which I like.
The above image describes my feelings toward this game… I feel bad for not voting for it at all…
This issue covers the top three, a secondary issue covering my favourites will be released within the next few days
As always, thank you for reading!
