Lucid: indie puzzle game out now on Steam


11:00 PM on 07.25.2011



Steam has a fantastic reputation when it comes to supporting indie games, and one of the newest titles on offer through the online store is the unique puzzler Lucid, which came out a few days ago and is only 3.99 right now. The game will go back to 4.99 once the launch week special ends, but for now its 20% off.

I enjoy puzzle games, they're fun and I can pick them up and put them down when I want without worrying about forgetting controls, plot points or what quest I am currently on. Lucid also features an interesting gameplay mechanic that I would expect to see on a mobile device, not the PC, where you "paint" a line connecting the gems to be removed from the level. The interesting part about this is that the line must remain unbroken. The music is also incredibly chill, and relaxing music can never be a bad thing. Well unless you want to be angry, or are secretly the Hulk.

Open world platformer/space shooter A.N.N.E is a retro buffet

Really, why even play clearly deficient retro games? I mean, where are the shmup segments in Metroid? Where are the open world segments in Contra? Where are the line segments in a bisected triangle? A.N.N.E. is one part platformer, one part shmup, one part RPG. And this year at PAX A.N.N.E. has all its systems in play. Maybe we'll all get to play it this year.more

Boy, The Hong Kong Massacre sure looks like Hotline Miami

Hotline Miami by way of Stranglehold or any other John Woo flick, at least. Which is appropriate for the setting. Though I'm also reminded of Michael Mann's Miami Vice movie for some reason. I guess it can't exactly be Hotli...more
