This are my favourite kinds of games. Really cheaply made games, often free or very cheap, that you can tell were made for love not profit. The kind of things you see for free on sites like Itch.io, the fanwork games sold at Reitaisai or Comiket, the silly, cheap mods of larger games like TF2's mario_kart or trade_plaza, the gaming world's equivalent of the music world's "lo-fi", essentially. While I'll enjoy AAA games and big budget releases, cheap and obscure games will always be my favourites.

Does anyone else feel like this?

Please refrain from political shitposting about Gamergate esque indie dev drama, that's not what this is for.

I played through 4 free indie games today that you can get off Steam. I'd say all 4 had their merits. I'll list them below.

#1 - September 1999: Very short horror game that only lasts for about five minutes, but has good atmosphere and also no jumpscares to worry about. Has a found footage aesthetic. Neat little experience. Similar to another free game called The Static Speaks My Name, which I'd recommend checking out as well.

#2 - When the Darkness comes: Stanley Parable type game about anxiety and depression with a bit of a horror aspect to it that has a length of about 40-50 minutes, but can be replayed for different endings. Bit of an in-cely feel to it at times, but has some otherwise good/unsettling segments in it that actually feel relevant to being perpetually socially isolated and struggling with mental illness and thoughts of suicide. The developer speaks as the narrator and has a very thick (French?) accent and sounds like he's about 16 years old which can also be quite distracting/annoying, so fair warning on that. You also have the option to just hang yourself at the end, which I appreciated and is the only ending I chose, or cared to see.

#3 - Burning Daylight: LIMBO/Inside type sidescrolling adventure game set in a neon laden cyberpunk dystopia that lasts for about 30-40 minutes. Pretty high production values for a free game, which is commendable. You don't really do much except walk to the right and take in the scenery, but it does that sort of thing well enough and has good atmosphere to soak around in while taking note of the environmental story telling going on in the background. Reminded me a bit of that show 'Love, Death, and Robots', in the sense of it being almost like a playable segment similar to the likes of the stories you'd see showcased there. Would be interesting to see it become a full game someday, but it's a solid and complete experience as it stands.

#4 - Answer Knot: Short first person narrative that lasts about 25 minutes. Kind of annoyingly normalfag at first, since you play as a guy listening to your wife's phone messages that she periodically leaves you while stumbling around some house and interacting with items based on what she's talking about while inevitably seeing photos of their obnoxious normalfag life plastered everywhere, but the game picks up once the actual story/strange events start coming into play, which takes roughly about 5-10 miPost too long.

From the same developer is 30秒マン. If you're interested in shmups or any other kinds of games that involve dodging, this game is a nice way to practice that. Rather than having free movement or a jump or anything, you constantly hop back and forth between the ceiling and the floor while Metal Blades come from the sides. There's three stages and each stage lasts 30 seconds, although there isn't a scoring system or anything. Just last 30 seconds and you're done.

According to the in-game rankings, only 37 people have beaten the game on Hard. I might try to beat it, too. It would be cool to have tangible proof that I'm one of only ~50 people in the world to have beaten something.


There are a lot of hentai doujin games on the +18 section of DMM the vast majority of them are truly shit games but some of them are decent games that have +18 scenes slapped on them to sell.

Check out some games you may like and torrent them on nyaa sukebei.


Trying out VIGIL


>getting your game recs from youtubers
is this why zoomers think games are shit nowadays?

is it okay for one to make a doujin game based on existing franchise as a portofolio and takes no commercial profit?
what does this falls under? education, parody?

just asking to make sure

thank you very much

If this was 10 or so years ago I would have said that idea would probably be suited to a flash game or something.
But now I am pretty out of the loop on what has taken the place of flash games for that niche of low risk amateur game development.

A fan made a update of Street Fighter 2 called New Legacy. He's giving it out for free and as yet had no problems with the Capcom.

I would like a re-balanced Zero2 or Zero3.

Daigo Umehara said the best Zero3 gameplay occurs when everyone agrees to NOT use V-ism. Haha. There has been some Z-ism only Japanese tournaments since X-ism is usually the inferior choice.


capcom is pretty good with fan games, I know with megaman they let any fan use anything from it and distribute it for free, stuff like megaman maker and others


that's because all their games are garbage that fans have to make their own


IDK much about MOBAs other than they were the peak genre a couple of years back. I used to really enjoy RTS especially the combat. And I understand that MOBAs grew out of the hero battles from Warcraft 3. So I thought this would be the best one for me, since I know the Starcraft and Warcraft characters.

From the YT vids I've been watching it seems really team-based and voice-based. But then I saw people complaining that no one uses the voice chat.

If I just want to be a loner who fights bad guys, can I do Moba? Or is it neccesary to join teams/clans whatever, be friends, coordinate closely?

I decided I want to try it, I'll just start with AI at 1st. I really suck, so maybe I'll just enjoy playing casually with AI. If I find I'm better than Im expected I'll try a few matches.

I enjoyed SC2 and WC2 as RTS, so it'll be fun to play those same characters with just tactics no bases


Which MOBA did you finally settle on?


Heroes of the storm since I know the franchise characters already. The controls are very similar to SC2, its like SC2 but you can only control 1 firebat.

I didn't realize there was a 30 day free trial period at the moment, where you can unlock all the characters. Only 5 days left. But that should be enough time to see if I like it or not. I just finished my 1st match, coop against easy AI.


I play league of legends cause I got roped into it. I main only one character, and I literally can't play anyone else. However I enjoy my one character, and solo q all the time.

If you have the temperament for imageboards, you can probably stand MOBA communities. Yeah they are filled with raging asshole, but if you yourself can remain unflappable, it's really quite funny.


Use bots? Is there an in-game option for that?


Does anyone here have problems with overspending in in game spending, such as freemium, free to play, microtransactions etc? As well as problems of addiction? gotcha games etc.

I got a free panzer general clone for my tablet. Ads are bad enough on a PC, but on a small tablet screen, taking up 1/4 of the screen its unplayable


man I have been playing League o f legends, and I am horrified at some people that pay for ALL the skins.

even if I was rich, this is insane to me. I know I felt the urge to buy skins many times. but the poorfag within me thrives like a phoenix, and soon I feel too cheap to spend on this shit.

and I never regret not buying. I feel like I can quit this game whenever I want I won't have wasted my money.


I've also been sucked into the league machine. I only play like one champ though so I bought her skins, and I'm considering buying the chromas too. But I play her so much it doesn't feel like a waste. Though some skins cost like 100 dollars for one skin.

I play more boardgames & tabletop games than computer games though. Most of them are self-contained so spending is under control.

Currently wanting the official Avatar: The Last Airbender rpg.


reason why I liked reading the dropped games general thread, saved me bandwidth and money. epic giveaways made me stop wasting cash on steam, screw that drm frontend. now if I do buy, it's from drm free stores.

i started to use a mic while playing vidya for the first time ever. usually the encounters are good or i just have people calling my voice retarded but i dont know how to deal with genuine irrational hostility.

no the people mad at me arent mad because of my voice, they get mad when i play the game right. eg: theyre camping in spawn with a tank doing nothing so i drive it to point and they start screaming at me and calling for mods


I fell you, I am an achivement hunter and I hate those multiplayer or co-op achivement the most simply because it forces me to communicate using mic


I hate them because I often play a game several years after launch so almost no one is even playing online anymore.


I'm something like that too.

What game is that? Sounds like Battlefield 1.

Good game but it doesn't use any sort of inputs unless you think double taping forward is an input.


Empty jump to bait a dp or make a normal aa whiff, land and SPD. Yesh!

For more than half a decade I've done nothing with my life but mindlessly browse the internet. I want to change that and get into games. What are some games you think everyone should play? What games should someone who wants to get into the medium play?

That's a very feminine way to look at things. There's plenty of things you would be interested in you could discuss on different boards. If you aren't interested in vidya for the sake of vidya don't force it. You will just make yourself miserable for hours to chat about something for five minutes. You would be better off finding art threads and boards and posting on those. Consuming is worse than creating.


>change his ways

Very nice. Thanks for the off topic replies and advices no one has asked you for. Do you also go to the jp and music boards to tell posters what to do with their time?


Tell me later what you think. There are a few more of these lost, short and interesting rpgmaker games out there.

I use Bamco games to play dress-up


mindlessly browsing the internet all day will suck the soul out of you, atleast with video games you get to have fun and perhaps even raise your self-esteem if you get good at one

Does anyone here speedrun video games? I think it's maybe the one thing I'm good at, but it's not very useful in real life and the only people who find it impressive are other speedrunners. I don't like how casuals gamers view speedrunning as just glitching or cheating the game, or somehow trying to claim that playing the game that way is "wrong".
Also speedrunning is a massive timesink for me and what I do most of the days I'm not wageslaving, I shudder to think of what else I could have achieved if I put the same amount of effort and dedication into something else.

Being autistic and grinding the same game over and over isn't "real gaming". It's turning games into a hobby. Real gaming is exploring different games and genres to get a wide range of experiences. Speed running turns gaming into a job, except you don't get paid for it. It's where people with no talent or desire to self improve go to waste their time and feel "good" about themselves for an hour after investing hundreds to earn that shallow, empty feeling. It's a sign of a failed civilization where men feel achievement in wasting their time grinding trivial things.


Who made you the authority on gaming? Personally; I don't waste time speedrunning, but I can't say it's not a hobby for others. Stop being so narrow-minded, even about ways you think people waste their time. It's literally gaming, as in they are playing a fucking video game.


>Real gaming is exploring different games and genres to get a wide range of experiences.
no, gaming is literally just playing a videogame. them being autistic and speedrunning and grinding doesn't make it any less authentic

it's the same for music, people spend years just playing the same songs over and over and yet no one makes fun of them, when really they should

Speedrunning is waaaay too much pressure for me, but I guess that's what speedrunners like about it. I prefer to do no death/no continue runs since they allow me to take short breaks here and there and also permit some fuckups, while still being very tense once you've gotten far into the game.
Ironically no death/no continue is seen in a much more positive light than speedrunning, despite being less skillful. Any good speedrun is usually a no death/no continue on top of being a speedrun (since dying unnecessarily would waste time), meaning every single part of the game becomes its own challenge you have to optimize. Whereas in a no death/no continue run, you can normally get by with just a basic plan for each level/boss. You only have to put in practice for the parts that are particularly difficult.


Yeah, I love things like nuzlocke and roguelikes (that aren't bogged down with progression or make/break RNG anyway). FTL is a pretty good roguelike for decently-short sessions.
