Glare is a pretty indie platformer starring a sun god

Disappointed mother used ‘glare.’ It was super effective!

Phobic Studios’ Glare looks like an interesting venture, as far as indie platformers go. It’s a bit of a dual weapon twin stick shooter tacked onto the Mega Man formula. Instead of jumping around like a madman to evade enemies you come across, you can stand your ground and shoo them away with your mean glare, letting you then take pot shots at them. 

You also have some sort of sun god main character with super saiyan hair on the body of something close to Bastion‘s main character.

The game comes out next week on PC, Mac, and Linux. Catch our review then.
