Link Dump Fridays

DoraRise and shine! It seems the Game Fairy came in the night and left all sorts of news for the good little gamers. The naughty ones just get copies of Desert Bus (no hope included) and Dead Island. For those of you with positive karmic balances, enjoy the good news!

The Sea Will Claim EverythingLands of Awwwww Yeaaaaah Who rocks? Jonas Kyratzes rocks. The popular developer, known for his thought-provoking and imaginative games that totally make you bawl your eyes out when you weren't expecting it has just announced his first commercial release; The Sea Will Claim Everything. Set once again in the Lands of Dream, the upcoming adventure/narrative/awesome-waiting-to-happen will deal with a foreclosure on the home of the Mysterious-Druid family, but since this is a Kyratzes game you can probably suspect that this is just the tip of the iceberg. Hit up the official press release to learn more and check out some screenshots... you can be bet I'm going to be first in line when pre-orders hit!

Indie BuskersHat and Talent in Hand Making games is hard, and making good games is even harder. That's why you should get excited for your chance to get involved in the process, one good idea at a time! The Indie Buskers are a group of developers (Sophie Houlden, Rat King Ent., Sos Sosowski, Pekka Kujansku, and Ido Yeheili) who are about to make your dreams a reality. You can visit their website and give them an idea. Any idea for a game. You want a game about riding ponies through Silent Hill while weilding the Wabbajack? Tell them! There's no guarantee your idea will come to pass, but on the weekend of April 14th-15th of this year they'll pick a handful of ideas, vote on which five they like the best, and then create them live before making them available to play. Sound good? Heck, sounds amazing! So go take part!

ClosureNow Available On A PS3 Near You! By the time this article already goes live, Tyler Glaiel's creepy-cool puzzle platformer Closure will already have been released on the Playstation Network, so you've probably already played it. If so, well done, and a brohoof for you! If not... well, all I can say is I'm not mad, just disappointed! Check out the original browser game to see what all the fuss is about, and then boot up your PS3 to show an indie developer some love. Congratulations, Tyler and team! Closure will see a release on your computer later this year.

GOGAs Long As It's Still Good Last year, DRM-freeing superheroes and champions of the downtrodden everywhere Good Old Games flirted with offering more current content by taking orders for The Witcher 2: Assassin of Kings. Well, they're throwing their hat into the ring once more with the announcement that they will be offering more indie games and taking more pre-orders for day-one releases. Provided they stick to their "no DRM" guns, this could potentially be a great new option for those of us who don't like not technically owning a game, and also might mean that more indie titles will reach a broader audience. Don't be scared, GOGers! I know games made after 2000 are new and scary, but there's a ton of great content out there if you're willing to try it! What do you guys think; will you be supporting GOG and consider ordering from them?

Baldur's Gate Enhanced EditionBaldur's Reasonable Pricing Surprise! It turns out all you'll need to play the upcoming Baldur's Gate Enhanced Edition on the go is any ol' iPad, not just the fancy new one, and the developers are even considering an iPhone version as a possibility! The news comes courtesy of Touch Arcade's newest Podcast in an interview with the team, and hot on the heels of the news that you can expect to pay under $10.00USD for the mobile version as well. Which, for a game this big, is a crazy good deal.
