5 for $5 Games Bundle for PC and All Proceeds Go Straight to the Indie Developers

Not quite a Humble Bundle, but still pretty neat for PC gaming fans, the 5 for $5 Bundle has no DRM and all of the proceeds go directly to the developers. Each of the five games is a very nifty looking genre mashup of some sort and includes Delve Deeper, Spring Up Harmony, Mactabilis, Steel Storm: Burning Retribution, and Digitanks. Check out the video below, and be sure to visit the Website to purchase:

Three for the Road: 03.27.2011

Greetings folks! Welcome to the April 17th, 2011 edition of Three for the Road. This week we take a look at a few more indie PC gems that are sure to entertain you for a while. This edition also marks the first time I am posting the games with GigaTribe download links in addition to the standard web-based download links. For years I've been trying to find a file sharing (P2P) package that I liked and GigaTribe comes closest to what I've been looking for.

Ultimately, I'm thinking of getting a P2P network established for fans of indie/classic gaming. So if you'd like to join, send an invite (from GigaTribe) to Mythran42 and we'll see if we can turn this grass roots effort into something larger. :-)

Note: The GigaTribe links download straight from my laptop PC.. so whether it's online or not will dictate the availability of the files.

Gnome's Lair Interviews Mike Rose, author of 250 Indie Games You Must Play

Our good friend Konstantinos of Gnome's Lair has posted an interview with Mike Rose, author of the upcoming book 250 Indie Games You Must Play. The book and the author sound great! I think this will definitely be a must-have for all of us interested in truly innovative game development. Perhaps it's a bit controversial, but I really like the fact that he focused on PC/Mac indie games, and every game in the book will play on a modern PC. That's of course good news for anyone who's worried that a particular title will is unavailable on their available platforms (I'm actually quite curious about what notable indie titles are NOT available on PC or Mac). The book is also sprinkled with quotations from designers and developers and boasts color screenshots. Please buy the book using the link to the left to support Armchair Arcade.

 03.20.2011Greetings folks! Welcome to the March 20th, 2011 edition of Three for the Road. Sorry for the lack of updates the last couple of weeks but my schedule has just been crazy.

Anyway, I'm back this week with a few more indie games for you to check out. First up we have a new port of a shoot'em up- this time for the venerable Amstrad CPC. Next, we take a look at a new Atari 2600 game with possibly the most horrid storyline since Custer's Revenge. Finally, we look at a shoot'em up that takes on the sensitive topic of bigotry as portrayed by squares and circles.

Great stuff!

Mayhem Matt: A platform/SHMUP with destructible terrain!Mayhem Matt: A platform/SHMUP with destructible terrain!Here you go, folks: A Matt Barton original! I'm still considering putting in a few more bells and whistles, but I think it's pretty fun now. Are you good enough to beat level 5 and save the planet? Just don't take too long, or you'll get the ground knocked out under your feet. Enjoy!

Instructions: Run, jump, and shoot! Shoot down the planes before they destroy the earth (literally). Collect power ups for weapon and speed boosts. If you get hit with a bullet or fall to your death, you'll lose a life -- and your collected powerups!

Arrow keys move, space bar shoots.

Three for the Road: 02.27.2011Greetings folks! Welcome to the February 27th, 2011 edition of Three for the Road. This week, I take a look at an eleven year old DOS based BBS door-game which has only recently been released to the public.. albeit, reworked as a single-player or local multi-player ANSImation RPG. We take a look at a minimalistic platforming game with destructible environments which turns out to be much more fun than it first appears. Finally, we take a look at a classic point-and-click style adventure game with a high attention to detail. If you're a fan of classic Sierra or LucasArts adventures then this may be just what you're looking for.

Wooo! We also take a look at a unique arena / tube shooter which has been taken off active sale and is now being given away for free.
