Vote for Don’t Be Patchman On Steam Greenlight

After receiving an email from Naturally Intelligent urging me to not be a Patchman, I had no choice but to check out why this character has such a bad rep. It turns out that Patchman used his celebrity status to help a drone army enslave the Sheeple, normally happy folk who used to live in harmony with nature. Through a bizarre series of events, Patchman dies after eating a vending machine, but is brought back to life by a kind old granny who sewed him back together. Now it will be up to you to help Patchman redeem himself and rescue the Sheeple from the Drone army.

Since we haven’t had any hands-on time with the game yet, it is a bit hard to discern what exactly is going on. According to the developers you will have to wear disguises while staying out of sight as you go about awakening the Sheeple. Finding seeds, growing fruits and plants, and tearing down propaganda posters will also factor into the equation. Your robotic opponents will be formidable, but can apparently be thwarted through the use of plants. It seems that Patchman gains abilities from eating plants and the drones all have weaknesses to specific ones. The game will require timing, patience and reflexes to master, so don’t be fooled by the beautiful pixel art visuals into thinking that it is going to be easy.

The Kickstarter trailer below uses real gameplay footage to provide an overview of the game and while we are not sure what half of the stuff happening is all about, it certainly looks very interesting. One thing is for sure, Don’t Be Patchman looks like a game that is playing by its own rules instead of sticking to a well-worn template and that is reason enough for us to look forward to its release. Check out the Don’t Be Patchman Kickstarter page if you want to back this unique game and don’t forget to swing by the Steam Greenlight page too in order to cast a vote.

Fans eager to find out what Nerdook Productions have been up to since the release of Vertical Drop Heroes HD last year should mark September 24th on their calendars. This is the date that Reverse Crawl will be hitting both Steam and the Humble Store. It is a game that turns the tables by giving you the opportunity to be the dungeon instead of the heroes.

Just like any 2D platform game with a shadow motif will probably be compared to Limbo for the foreseeable future, PONCHO is inevitable going to draw comparisons to Fez. From the title and vibrant pixel art visuals to the chiptune soundtrack and world shifting gameplay mechanics there are plenty of similarities. However, we spent some time playing this parallax platformer and it definitely has a unique identity of its own.

In recent years we’ve seen indie developers take on some pretty ambitious projects, and pull it off, but Epic Dragon takes things to a whole new level. This indie outfit composes of only a programmer and artist, but these two guys plan on creating an MMORPG. We are not talking pixel art or retro art visuals either, but full-blown 3D and tons of detail. Even more amazing, they plan for the whole thing to run inside a modern browser without the need for any plug-ins to be installed first and for players to get in the game within seconds.
