A new weekly news show exclusive to Huge subscribers
As much as I loved hosting and co-creating The Destructoid Show, it was a show that was often limited by reality -- the reality of working for a big outlet like Revision3 (where producers and directors make all the final cre...

Did I trick you guys with that title? Was it attention-grabbing? Titling posts is surprisingly difficult, you have to say something that tells people what they're getting into but is also entertaining. I figured, what's more ...

HUGE Members: Claim your full game from IndieGameStand

Sep 27 // Niero Desu
Gnormoria is a sandbox village management.  At the time, it was their most successful sale and was greenlit on Steam a few weeks later.  "Using our developer portal, Robotronic Games was able to distribute Steam keys to all of their IndieGameStand customers after launching on Steam early access."   [embed]262404:50624:0[/embed] Escape Goat helped launch IndieGameStand a year ago, so it’s only fitting to highlight this wonderful gem.  "Escape Goat is a platform puzzle game where the rooms of your prison move and change before your very eyes.  Escape Goat 2 is currently in development and will launch on the IndieGameStand store this fall." [embed]262404:50611:0[/embed] Gimbal is an online multiplayer shooter where you build and design your own ships.  "We like to think that we helped discover Gimbal, resulting in it being one of our top performing sales this first year, but that could just be a result of the deep gameplay and awesome physics engine." [embed]262404:50612:0[/embed] Cognition: An Erica Reed Thriller is a dramatic point and click crime adventure serial.  "Phoenix Online Studios has been a tremendous supporter of our site and continues to bring each subsequent episode of this riveting series to our platform.  Of course, it’s easy to feature this game as a staff pick due to its gripping storytelling." [embed]262404:50613:0[/embed] Aztaka is an indie throwback to the good old side-scrolling action RPG genre.  "In this gorgeous hand-painted world you play Huitzilo, heir of the Sun God, able to wield both spear and spell.  The IGS staff selected this game because of its stunning hand drawn graphics and niche genre." [embed]262404:50614:0[/embed] Weird Worlds: Return to Infinite space is a sci-fi roguelike game that forged the genre and inspired recent indie games like FTL.  "Digital Eel has been our most featured indie developer this past year with three different sales.  Weird Worlds is one of their most successful games and they are currently at work on the 3rd game in the series after a successful Kickstarter campaign."   [embed]262404:50615:0[/embed] Krunch is an old-school race against time to survive and escape.  "Originally made as a prototype for Ludum Dare, LeGrudge and Rugged expanded their game idea into their first commercial release. The IGS staff selected Krunch because it is an excellent example of taking a prototype to a full commercial release.  We also love the challenge!"  [embed]262404:50616:0[/embed] Megabyte Punch is a MegaMan meets SmashBros mashup that IGS featured as a Beta. "Megabyte Punch has always been an IGS favorite and we most recently showcased it at PAX East.  It’s an adventure combat game where you build your own robot fighter from the pieces of your foes." [embed]262404:50617:0[/embed] Zigfrak is a space-based action RPG, featuring missions, exploration, and crafting. "With an emphasis on loot and over-the-top items, it's not a traditional space sim. The IGS staff selected Zigfrak because we’re addicted to loot and love how enemy ships explode like loot piñatas." [embed]262404:50618:0[/embed]  Dungeon Dashers is an action packed, turn-based, co-operative dungeon crawler that the IGS staff fell in love with at GDC this year. It brings the enjoyment of a fantasy tabletop board game to the computer and is currently in development with a planned release by the end of the year. [embed]262404:50619:0[/embed]   The Real Texas is an action adventure game that plays like a mashup of Zelda: Link to the Past and Ultima VI.  What really shines in the Real Texas is the well-written story and incredibly quirky and wacky universe. The IGS staff selected this title because of this uniqueness.  The Real Texas embodies what an Indie Game is all about. [embed]262404:50620:0[/embed] Vox is a voxel based adventure RPG that is still in Alpha development.  "The game is all about customizing and building anything that you can imagine and allows for unparalleled creativity.  The IGS staff selected Vox because it deserves more attention and to be greenlit on Steam." [embed]262404:50621:0[/embed] SpaceChem is an obscenely addictive, design-based puzzle game about building machines and fighting monsters in the name of science. "The IGS staff selected this game because it's one of the most difficult indie puzzle games around -- an absolute must play for anyone looking for a challenge." [embed]262404:50622:0[/embed] Paranautical Activity brings classic FPS action inspired by games like Doom & Quake and adds the randomness of roguelikes to create something truly unique for the Windows, Mac and Linux platforms.  The developers, Mike Maulbeck and Travis Pfenning, have been very supportive and praised our platform on Twitter. [embed]262404:50623:0[/embed] Want to discover even more games?  Check out the all new IndieGameStand for more details. We're very excited about their new launch and a proud supporter of their developers.
