Hyper Light Look #12

Every month, hundreds of new indies enter the market. While it would be awesome if all of them could have their own, dedicated review or preview, we unfortunately do not have the time or space to do that in a timely manner. Instead, we offer you Hyper Light Look, our series of feature articles where we take a quick look at some new indie games.

Yuppie Psycho

Yuppie Psycho, is a game I’ve been wanting to cover for a long time now. It’s one of those games were the immersion and story driven experience is so well crafted, that talking about it becomes extremely difficult without feeling like you’ve spoiled the experience though.

This Immersive horror game, is painstakingly crafted by the developers at Baroque Decay. Who have gone about combining all of the different hair raising elements of the horror genre, into what amounts to be a scarily relatable experience.

From creepy soulless workmates, To sentient electronics out to murder you before lunch. Yuppie Psycho is full of unexpectedly smart surprises for it’s players, I would highly recommend you give it a try yourself!

Score: 9.1/10

Yuppie Psycho is available on steam for $23.95 AUD or your regional equivalent here.

Nelly Cootalot: Spoonbeaks Ahoy! HD

Nelly Cootalot: SpoonBeaks Ahoy! HD is a wholesome and cute re-release by Alasdiar Beckett-King & Application systems. Staring the young, unlikely hero Nelly Cootalot on a quest from mail rooms of the underliverable to the pirate loving towns among the seven sea. All in an attempt to save the world from an unstoppable army of birds?!

The genuine obscurity of the premise, coupled with the cute visuals and smile inducing dialog. Make for a compelling warts and all return to the adventure game genre with good writing to keep the frustration of being stumped at bay.

At the end of the day Nelly Cootalot: SpoonBeaks Ahoy! HD shapes up to be a great additional feather, to add to your sea faring adventure game vessel.

Need a Packet?

Need a Packet? Is a beautiful Psychological trip through the horrors of pollution and monotony, hand crafted by Marinal act and masterfully composed by the likes of CHSZM, (A.Podat) and Mockumentary.

Once you’ve gotten over the steep learning curve, the artistic design of Need a Packet? Keeps you invested through the short, yet troubling experience. The city is a disaster zone, rot and decay plague the cities walls, waters poison the citizens and those that go to the forest never return…
Yet Mollie still continues with her every day, having to deal with her cripplingly mental stability while securing enough for the rent to survive.

Need a Packet? Is certainly the most unique experience I’ve come across this year, painting an eerily possible future boldly to make you question your reality.

I’m Curious to see what other creations Marginal act has in store for us next.

Score: 6.3/10

Need a Packet? is available on steam for 12.95 AUD or your regional equivalent here.
