On the horizon there is an ever closer integration between Stadia and Android, but the present and the future of gaming for Google is still largely linked to the Play Store. With the Indie Game Festival, the Mountain View giant wants to reward those smaller companies (with a maximum of 50 employees) that have distinguished themselves in the last year. Let's see, therefore, which developers and with which titles have won the award this year in three different geographical regions: all of Europe, Japan and Korea.
Cookie Must Die by Rebel Twins, Polish studio, is an ironic and easy-going game that sees a married couple grappling with hordes of evil biscuits. The title shines for animation and flexibility: it lends itself to short sessions, snacks, typical of the mobile game, but also long hours.
inbento is developed by another Polish group, that of the boys from Afterburn: as the title suggests, the aim will be to prepare (puzzle after puzzle) the bento, that is the typical Japanese container where employees carry the lunch prepared at home and then eaten in the office. Ah, the cooks are cats.
The White Door by Rusty Lake (Holland, this time) is instead a game with a completely different tone. It is an old-fashioned point and click adventure, graced by minimal graphics and full of personality.
- GIGAFALL, of Shiki Game Studio is a game that strikes lovers of 8-bit graphics with its retro style. And also its spatial concept, like many pioneers in the industry. A bit like in Space Invaders, we will have to defend the earth from a sidereal threat: in this case, however, we will control the laser of satellites in orbit around the Earth to destroy meteor showers that threaten extinction.
- METBOY !, of REBUILD GAMES: game that mixes past and future, with a simple and colorful graphic style and a nostalgic soundtrack.
- Wasurenaide, otona ni natte mo, of GAGEX Co., Ltd:: the edges are those of Minecraft, but the emotions are different, for a cinematic adventure that tells the story of a child looking for his father.
- Heroes Restaurant, by Team Tapas: a title with a particular recipe, which mixes the structure of a classic RPG with a cooking game.
- Magic Survival, by LEME: a simple survival game.
- Project Mars, by Moontm: the protagonist does not resemble Elon Musk, but his purposes yes, since the aim of the game is to colonize Mars.
