Humble Eye Candy Bundle Is A Sight To Behold

Posted on May 3, 2016 by Rae Michelle Richards

Humble’s latest bundle is a feast for the eyes – called the Humble Eye Candy Bundle, this latest set of discount games are absolutely beautiful. To be clear I’m not talking about “a game that has the most technically demanding graphics” but more in the way of “this game will stand up aesthetically for along time to come.”

So what can you get? By chipping $1 towards charity you’ll receive two of Wayforward’s beautiful 2D games – 2010’s Shantae: Risky’s Revenge, the recent PC port of the 2009 Wii Exclusive A Boy and His Blob as well as Tomorrow Corporation’s Human Resource Machine.

The other tiers are full of other great titles, with more being added soon.

Independent Games Festival 2016 Finalists Announced

Posted on January 6, 2016 by Rae Michelle Richards

The Independent Games Festival have announced their line-up of finalists across seven different categories for the IGF Awards which are to be announced during the 2016 Games Developer Conference in San Francisco California.

It must have been a painstaking process for the 400 evaluators to select this small list of finalists from among the more than 750 entrants that were in the running this year. Evaluators are selected from industry professionals based upon their expertise in the distinct categories, according to the IGF.

So what is in the running this year? Toby Fox’s Undertale, the minimalistic train simulator Mini Metro, the gothic turn based RPG Darkest Dungeon and the crime fiction game Her Story, just to name a few.

Check out the full list of nominees after the jump. Broken Joysticks will be attending the Game Developers Conference this March and will bring you as much coverage from the IGF awards & other events as they happen!Read More
