I'm not the sort person who is fond of Indie games. I like my big name titles, my polished graphics and my big budgets. I dislike titles that I can't add to Steam or that can't use the processing power I've lovingly paid out for in my gaming rig. I am, for lack of a better term, a gaming snob. For this reason, I have given myself The Indie Challenge.
Each week, I will be playing at least one lesser known Indie game. I may not have enough time to complete said game, but I will at least try it. I'm doing this to attempt to expand my gaming horizons and stop being so focused on a small selection of game types. There is a whole world of gaming out there ready and waiting for me to come across.
I'll be posting a weekly blog following this challenge and detailing the game I've been playing as well as the game I will be playing next week. If you want to follow along with me, I'll be posting a link to the game.
This week, I will be playing Receiver,a game created for the 7-day FPS challenge which explores gun handling mechanics, randomised levels and unordered storytelling. You're armed only with a handgun and an audio cassette player and you're tasked with uncovering the secrets of the Mindkill.
You have to do everything from thumbing in the bullets into the magazine, manually cocking the gun, releasing the hammer etc.
If you'd like to follow along with this challenge and play Receiver as well, you can find it on Steam here: http://store.steampowered.com/app/234190/
