Link Dump Fridays

DoraOld school RPGs? We got that. Sequel to our 2011 game of the year? Got that too. Some sweet, sweet deals? Ditto. Brand new game from Double Fine? Awwww yisss. TGIF.

News and Previews

UndertaleJust a Taste As awesome as it is, I hesitate to tell you to play the PC demo for Undertale, the upcoming classic-with-a-twist indie RPG from Toby Fox, because you're just going to want the whole thing right away and are going to languish until it hits. In a world where monsters have been banished underground after a war with humans, you play a little human child who accidentally falls below and find yourself in a strange world with even stranger rules, where puzzles and danger lurk around every corner. Sporting a unique combat system where you can resort to violence or charm, a fantastic old-school flair, and memorable characters, this is one you need to watch out for. Hey, do you think thirty years from now everyone will be making games that look like Mass Effect and calling those "retro"?

Kingdom Rush FrontiersJust a Sequel to the 2011 Game of the Year, No Biggie Kingdom Rush fans, thy time has (almost!) finally come... launching on iOS on June 6th, the sequel to the smash-hit real-time strategy defense game from Ironhide Game Studio is almost here! Sporting new towers, new enemies, bosses, and much, much more, this is looking absolutely fantastic. Yes, unfortunately initially it's going to be an iOS exclusive, but rest assured it will be headed both for Android devices and your desktop in the future!

Kickstarter/IndieGoGo Projects

Massive ChaliceYou Know, it's Not the Size of the Chalice That Counts... Kickstarter is the thing these days, and when you've had as much success with it as Double Fine has, well, you can't blame them for coming back to it yet again! Planned for PC, Mac and Linux (DRM-free no less) Massive Chalice is a turn-based tactics game where you, an immortal ruler, guide your kingdom through the generations against threats. The twist is, as you manage your city and your army, time is passing, and your heroes will grow up, grow old, and ultimately die, so you'll have to be constantly training new generations of warriors that spring from the old. It looks absolutely amazing, and if you're a strategy nut, then this one should be a no-brainer. Cooler than Steamboat Willie Cherry's a classic 'toon kind of gal who's used to being the damsel in distress, but when her boyfriend is captured by his arch-nemesis, suddenly she finds herself the one having to spring to the rescue in Red Little House Studios' upcoming action/puzzle adventure Fleish & Cherry in Crazy Hotel. Sporting a stunning classic animated style with puzzles and action where you'll have to "think like a toon" in order to proceed. This one looks absolutely, jaw-droppingly beautiful, and the unique twist to a tired trope and clever gameplay means it's one to watch out for.



Bundle in a BoxGhosts and Hackers and Knights, Oh My! The Bundle-in-a-Box is back, and this time it's packing some serious heat with its "Capsule Computers Bundle". And maybe some serious chill too, since Joey's dead. ... what? I'm not being insensitive. The bundle features the fantastic Blackwell point-and-click adventure games from Wadjet Eye Games featuring psychic Rosa and her dead-but-still-sassy partner Joey. With a minimum purchase of a paltry $1.99USD, there's no reason to not pick these gems up... especially if you want to support the Bundle's Indie Dev Grant and make sure games like these keep coming out!

Humble Bundle 8A Mass Murderer, A Touching Platformer, and a Pyromaniac... Sounds Good The 8th Humble Bundle has arrived, and this one's a doozy. Packing hits like Hotline Miami, Thomas Was Alone, Little Inferno and more, I'd almost call this one mis-matched, except they definitely all have quality in common to burn. As of this writing the average purchase sits at $5.67USD for these beauties, and that is a crazy good price for some crazy good games, so be sure to check it out!

Do you know an upcoming indie project or some community gaming related news you think deserves some attention? Send me an e-mail with LINK DUMP FRIDAY in the subject line at dora AT jayisgames DOT com with the info, and we'll judge it with the all-seeing glare of our own self-importance for inclusion in a future Link Dump Friday article!

The Humble Bundle is worth getting just for Little Inferno!

Infinity Inc> Dora Get by with a little help from your friends... or yourself, anyway, in this dark puzzle platformer by The Shpufa. Use a cloning gun to make expendable buddies to trigger traps and press switches for you as you traverse an abandoned facility. It's harmless... right?  ...
Concrete Jungle> Dora You'll need a good head on your shoulders and deck in your hands to master this cunning indie game of cards and strategy! When you're called in to help rebuild a town and the surrounding area with the help of smart Laney Thompson, every tile counts, especially since different buildings you place have different effects that can negatively impact your total! With multiple game modes and a brilliant cartoony style, Concrete Jungle is addictive and clever in equal measure.  ...
Redemption Cemetery: Clock of Fate> Dora You thought your biggest problem was being late for your train, when suddenly you find yourself hurtling back through time. You're stuck in the 1940s unless you can help the troubled spirits you encounter right the wrongs in the pasts in this gorgeous but gruesome hidden-object adventure.  ...
Old City Escape> Dora You're in the slammer once again in this short but satisfying escape game from Pine Studio. But maybe with the help of a fine feathered friend, and a little heavy weaponry, you can escape the tower and sail away to freedom!  ...
