The crowds await for EGX to open to the public!

 

Three days. 16-bit raves. Hundreds of games. Thousands of exhibitors. And one chance email, resulting in working on the Ground Shatter ‘Sky Scrappers’ stall.

The Sky Scrappers stall. Popular amongst people of all ages and abilities! best moment was when a kid ran screaming out of the room because he won against his mates, topped almost by one of his friends repeatedly shrieking “Jessica!!” as his character battled for the top position :3

 

Here is my own EGX Rezzed Redux on what was seen, heard, smelt, tasted, and played!

1) Sky Scrappers – bit biased, but this 90s anime brawler had the best competitive multiplayer game feel for an indie game!

2) Zombie Vikings – layer upon layer of gorgeous art, hilarious scripting and hectic quest-based , best played with two players

3) Steamworld Heist – Revisit a rich world of steambots and starships. XCOM stylie tactics & skilled shots – I lost my hat!

4) Friendship Club – local multiplayer 2D shmup feels like fencing sabre: devastating 3sec action, many parries & blows!

5) I Am Bread – Bagel madness, floppy toast, rolling around in frustration and every last bread-related joke: classic Bossa

6) Starbound – 2D Minecraft with 3D printer mechanic and plant peeps?! Dribblingly good art / desolate planet-splorin’

7) De Mambo – brawl-as-a-ball multiplayer madness, interesting but game feel felt too sluggish to react tactically

8) SuperDungeonBros – castle crashers 3d, in alpha… picking-up-your-friends-and-throwing-them-into-a-hole action!

9) SuperGlad – Adventure Time meets a cosy hot chocolate being sipped through a curly straw. Loveliness!

10) Noct – best bit was when I realised the guy sat next to me was playing too! Tense game, scary creeps, defo buy this!

11) The Talos Principle – heard recently there’s a Serious Sam voiceover for April Fools, nice! Puzzles and androids.

12) Volume – deep story overlaid over a sneaking game, mechanics didn’t feel too fresh. Bithel sticking to a known mayhaps?

13) Tembo the BadAss Elephant – glimpsed this romping elephant destroying stuff in the indie section; bagso ‘splosions!

14) Bloodbourne – the best looking thing I’ve seen in realtime rendering. Boss looked a bit dumb. Uncanny valley much?

15) QUBE – lots of cube-based headaches… clever Portal-esque concept and the only power missing was a juggle cube ability

16) Schrodingers Cat and the Raiders of the Lost Quark – throwback to 90s games, thumbs up up up for the quark combo mechanic!

17) Shovel Knight – hard.
