Game Institute's Huge Game Developer Package Sale!

Yes, this might sound like an advertisement or something, but I wrote every word of it and I believe every word. I was not asked to write this, I was not paid for it, I didn't even get any free samples or stickers or anything! This entire article originates from being on their email list and just being genuinely excited about it!!!

One of the biggest problems with getting into game development, aside from the time required, is the high cost. If you've ever looked around any book store (or amazon.com, etc) for game programming books of any sort, you know all too well that $50-$60 is just an acceptable price for 300-400 pages of knowledge. That assumes, you know, that you did your research right, picked out a book that will actually work for you, doesn't assume you already know things that you don't, doesn't teach you the same things all over again... I seriously have at least $200 worth of books that are useless because I just couldn't get behind the way the author was putting the knowledge out there or had already learned those exact same things in another book (usually there's one or two chapters of goodness, but seriously, $60 is waaaaaay too much to gamble!).

Oh, and if you want to go to school for game development, unless you live near one of the few schools that teach it, you'll be going online, and that's ridiculously expensive too. I really love the looks of some of the schools (Digipen was the first I'd heard of and I drooled over the website for months), but there was no way I was affording it, and I don't believe in getting huge student loans that will take years (or decades) of my life to pay off.

The other day, I received an email from The Game Institute (I'm on their email subscription list) saying they were having a big sale. The Game Institute hosts a humongous array of game development training materials for wanna-be game developers of all sorts - it covers C++ programming, art/animation, math (yeah yeah, no one likes math except me, but you'll be using a LOT of math as a game programmer), AI (always one of my favorites, it's such an awesome field to learn) and even building your own game console (although if you want to actually build it, it's another $230 for the kit...). What's amazing is that all of this comes as one huge package, including online textbooks (you can purchase physical, but the price is unknown) and around 150 hours of presentations for only $99, but through January 1st it's only $49! That's less than gambling on one single book most of the time! Plus, apparently you also get any new stuff put out for a year. There's also the option of actually getting a professor to guide you and getting college credit for it, but I couldn't find a price for that anywhere without buying the package (and it's not payday yet...). You can actually find the huge, detailed list of everything here as well.

I wish I would have known about this sooner so I could have shared it as a Christmas gift idea for everyone, but it still makes an excellent gift idea for any game developers (or someone who would like to learn to become one!) in your life (or yourself!).

Top 10 Indie Games of the Year 2013 From IndieDB

The votes are in and IndieDB has amassed their top 10 voted indie games of the year! What amazed me was the sheer variance in genres, although apparently it's the year of outer space love (maybe because the US canceled it's space program?) so there's something great for everyone here. Here are the winners:

  • Starbound is a "2D space exploration sandbox game" that actually has a story and main goals to accomplish (if you want)!
  • Contagion is a "cooperative survival horror FPS where players are forced to watch their ammo and aim carefully otherwise be overrun by the zombie hordes." The game is also randomly generated, but your fear won't be!
  • I've heard a lot about Kerbal Space Program in the past, and was always curious, but now that it's #3 highest voted I'll definitely have to check it out! KSP is a "multi-genre game where the player can create his own space program, [... and] build a space-worthy craft capable of flying it's crew out into space without killing them
  • Space Engineers is "a sandbox game about engineering, construction and maintenance of space works. Players build space ships and space stations of various sizes and utilization (civil and military), pilot ships and perform asteroid mining."
  • The Stanley Parable is another game I've heard quite a bit about, and it's probably the one I know the least about after reading the pages! From the IndieDB page: "The Stanley Parable is a simple game about storytelling. You will be told a story and then you will be asked to make a choice, except that the choice will not matter. No, sorry, my mistake, the choice matters a great deal. Or maybe...is it that the story doesn't matter? Wait, let me check my notes..."
  • Into the Dark is, succinctly enough, "a playable B-Movie, a trash Experience composed out of 60% humour, 30% horror and 10% technical flaws."
  • Path of Exile is the first action/RPG on the list and it's free to play! It involves a slew of character customization as well as PvP.
  • Tales of Maj'Eyal is another RPG, but this one is a roguelike that also happened to win Roguelike of the Year 2010-2012!
  • Outlast is another horror game, this one takes place in Mount Massive Asylum, which sounds like a combination of two creepy things!
  • Rogue Legacy rounds it all up, and it's a "genealogical roguelite." I can't pick just one sentence to copy since it's so well written, but here's from the developers: "You must traverse a procedurally-generated castle to uncover the secrets of your cursed heritage. You have only one chance though, as there is no redemption from death. Fortunately your lineage spawns like bunny rabbits, and there are plenty of successors willing to pick up the sword. Unfortunately genetics aren't a perfect science, resulting in children who suffer from a variety of different traits, such as blindness, dyslexia, and even irritable bowels syndrome. Do you have what it takes to uncover your family's history and redeem its honor?"
There were also Editor's Choice awards, all of which were for games not listed above except for Rogue Legacy, which placed #1 overall and "Best Singleplayer Game". And if you're wanting to know what awesomeness is being made as you read this, there's also a "Best Upcoming Indie Games" section.

Which game are you most excited for? I'd thrown a concept around in my head before similar to Rogue Legacy, but coming up with the basic concept and carrying it out to awesome completion are two totally different things!

Treasurebear: Humor, Exploration, Platforming, Treasure and Food!

Treasurebear combines two incredibly awesome things: good platforming action and LOTS of treasure! The game focuses on a duo of unlikely "heroes" - [From the Kickstarter page] "The greedy and unpredictable Chester, a charismatic treasure chest forever condemned by the treasure hunter's guild, and his sleepy sidekick Barry, a hungry bear who prefers sauce battles over boss battles." The story is driven as such: "Barry teams up with Chester following the promise of visiting foreign lands in order to locate and sample exquisite and tasty foods. Determined to locate his blackmailer and exonerate himself, Chester utilizes his uncanny talents for finding shiny and potentially valuable items while upholding his promise to Barry."

While the story is humorous and intriguing, it's the gameplay concepts that really sold me on the game. See, because of the way the two team up, you're able to do some really awesome things together! As you can see from the image below, Bear & Boar (the developers) have had no shortage of creative ideas! And this goes far beyond abilities, the depths of the story, crazy levels and treasure hunting all appear to go just as deep.

Concepts for upgrades. Why hasn't anyone come up with the gold coin machine gun before?

The Offspring Release 8-Bit Versions of "You're Gonna Go Far, Kid"

I'll admit to having been a much bigger fan of The Offspring in my youth than now, but after finding out about Dexter's hot sauce (Gringo Bandito) and now their three 8-bit versions of "You're Gonna Go Far, Kid" (which you can download free!) my interest is piqued once more!

Like I said, there are three versions - Rudolph, Mistletoe and Eggnog. Rudolph and Eggnog are my favorites - Eggnog has a really fun beat going with it, whereas Rudolph feels more it belongs right on a good Game Boy soundtrack. All in all, I loved them though, and it really was a fun surprise to come across randomly in my email! Most bands would have added them to a new, special re-release of the original CD instead of just saying "Hey, here ya go!"

In case you missed the link above, you can download the .zip file right here: http://www.offspring.com/xmas2013/youre-gonna-go-far-[xmas-2013].zip

Party of One - Ludum Dare 28 Game Review

My second Ludum Dare 28 game review is of Party of One, a fun twist on puzzle warfare by Jan Marcano/@AldianSolkai. The premise is simple: your party of heroes has to protect the town from invading monsters! The twist? The evil wizard behind the invasion has cursed your party and turned you all into one person, so now it's just "one" of you against all of them! Good luck!

Definitely fitting of the "easy to learn, difficult to master" phrase.

IndieGameStand has put a good amount of work into this one, and it really is for an awesome cause, so check it out! Worst case, you'll find out about a whole bunch of games that you can get for as little as 25 cents each (or probably Google to find for free, but hey, it's charity!).

The DLC Quest Duology - Earn that DLC!

DLC has become something nearly every game has available these days. Heck, some companies even have season passes available before the game releases! Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag, for example, was boasting extra missions for Adewale, the Jackdaw's first mate, before the game itself came out, and I wanted it! DLC can not only add to the game, it can make the game easier, unlock things quicker, change the graphics around or simply give your avatar something cool to wear. The DLC quest games manage to not only mock all of this in a genius manner, they're a load of fun!

No Way Out - Ludum Dare 28 Game Review

I'm kicking off my Ludum Dare 28 game reviews with No Way Out, a really awesome, amazingly atmospheric little adventure by Emma ("Eniko"/@Enichan) of the one-woman game studio Kitsune Games. Before I even dig in, let me just sum up with this: it's a short little adventure that can be beaten in under a minute if you know what you're doing, and it's an experience that every game player should have. Plus, it's free to play and requires no download since it's a web game!

It already has you intrigued, doesn't it?

Charlie's POV's SUPER HUGE Christmas Game Giveaway!

Starting a couple weeks ago, I reached out to a bunch of indies (as many as I could find, really) asking to do a big Christmas game giveaway. I figured I'd get 10-25 games or so and it'd be a pretty huge giveaway... Boy was I wrong - NEVER underestimate the kindness and generosity of indie game developers!! I ended up getting over 70 different games worth over $625, and between the extra copies of games I've gotten, I have over 350 games to give away worth over $2,950 total!!!! That's absolutely mind-blowing to me, and I am incredibly humbled by it all. In fact, because I got so many games, I've expanded on the giveaway concept, turning it into over a dozen different giveaways.

The giveaway below is the SUPER HUGE giveaway - the giveaway that has one copy of each game. Each entry is optional, so you can pick and choose which ones you do, but most of them were chosen by the game developers themselves, so entering as many as you can helps support them and helps you keep up to date with all of their awesomeness!

You can click here if you want to see the grand list of games in the giveaway, or just enter below! Good luck, and don't forget to enter all of the other Christmas giveaways as well!

Note: One winner will be chosen at random. The giveaway is open worldwide. The winners will be emailed via their Rafflecopter email address once chosen, and will have three (3) days to reply to it. If you don't reply within the three days, a new winner will be chosen at random.

Indie Game: The Movie Sale

For those not familiar, Indie Game: The Movie is a really awesome movie about several indie game developers and some incredible moments along the way through the creation of their games. I haven't seen the movie since my birthday last year - it released June 12th, 2012 and my birthday is the 15th... I'd been psyched for it for months and it was the only thing I really wanted as a gift. I really need to watch it again and give it a proper review... But anyway, the movie is REALLY good and it's absolutely excellent for indie game developers, game players and makes a great way to introduce people who dislike games to the world of gaming. If you really want more info before you dive in, go check out the Wikipedia page.

FIVE hours of indie game developer awesomeness, plus lots of extra goodies? YES PLEASE!
Somehow, despite being a birthday gift a year and a half ago, I'm asking for it now again for Christmas. The original purchase was a download, and now it's moved on to DVD, Blu-Ray and even a special edition with OVER FIVE HOURS of footage! I'd absolutely love to see more about the developers and their stories!

Gamestop's Playday at Gamestop

Yes, I realize that taking your kids anywhere this close to Christmas where there are toys and video games makes your money disappear faster than setting it on fire, but I just had to write about this because it's so unique and fun, so bear with me! :D


On December 7th, Gamestop is running a big sale/special day that they're calling Playday at Gamestop. The first 50 customers (it doesn't say "visitors" so it's probably the first 50 people who buy something, but it doesn't specify in the email) get a free Super Mario 3D World sticker sheet, and they'll be demoing fun kids games as well. There are also sales on several games, such as the Disney Infinity Toy Box Challenge Starter Pack ($59.99 instead of $74.99) and the Skylanders Swap Force Starter Pack ($49.99 instead of $74.99). There's also the all-new Skylanders Swap Force Jolly Bumble Blast character for $9.99 and other games as well.

You can check the webpage for more details and to verify that your location is doing it, but the email makes it sound like all of them will be. If you've got young gamers (or just want Disney Infinity or Skylanders yourself), go check it out!

IndieGameStand Cyber Monday (And Beyond) Sale

IndieGameStand is running a Cyber Monday sale at the moment with no announced end date (so I'd hurry up!). I haven't played most of the games, but here's a list of the ones I've seen in action and would definitely suggest:

I'm sure there are LOTS of other great games in there that I simply don't recognize (or missed), so check it out and stock up on some games!

Ti Cubes - Cool or Heat Awesomely!

There have been a lot of cool ways to cool things or make ice in the past, but Ti Cubes definitely have to be toward the top of the list. These are actual cubes of 100% pure, aircraft grade titanium that's food safe and hypo-allergenic. Plus, since they're titanium, they can not only make your drinks stay cold, they can keep your drinks hot too, all without adding any off flavor or melting!

Elliot Quest - Kid Icarus Meets Platformer Action RPG

When I first saw Elliot's Quest I was a bit worried by how the developer mentioned a few times that it was inspired by Zelda II. I always thought there were a few cool parts to the game, but I really didn't like it - it was too difficult and I just never really got into it. The completionist side of me wanted to level everything up, and the way the battles happened, it would take foreeeeeever to do it! There was something about Elliot's Quest, though, that I was really interested in, and I'm really glad I gave the demo a try. Note: it's a web demo so there's no install or download, although I did have to refresh the page a couple times to get it running properly.

This Giveaway is sponsored by #Tassimo and Hosted by It's Peachy Keen. Also CO-Hosted by My Couponing Life and Oh Just Stop Already.

What is a Tassimo Brewer?

#TASSIMO is a one-cup, on-demand beverage system that uses INTELLIBREWTM to make sure every cup is brewed using the right amount of water, the right temperature and the right brew time.

#TASSIMO creates an assortment of authentic coffeehouse-style beverages including coffee, tea, cappuccino, espresso, latte, hot chocolate and more conveniently at home. Most of our beverages are ready in about a minute and the cappuccinos and lattes are made with real liquid milk. It is more than just a coffee maker!

" I can say as a #Tassimo lover that is is amazing. I have no need to go out for a special coffee or drink. They are made perfect in the kitchen now. Also I click the button on and the machine is ready to go. No waiting for the water to get hot or it to be ready to brew. It is instant. With my mornings being as hectic as they are with three little kids wanting my attention. I need something fast and convenient. #Tassimo is both. While their coffee selection isn't HUGE yet they are growing a lot and all the coffee products they do offer really hit the spot on quality and tastiness. "


What is a T Disc? You know the kind of coffee pod the machine uses!....

The ingenious #TASSIMO Disc pod (T DISC) was developed exclusively for use with #TASSIMO single cup brewers. Each T DISC contains an expertly measured portion of coffee, hot chocolate, tea, or liquid milk creamer. When the T DISC is inserted, the #TASSIMO single cup brewer uses INTELLIBREWTM to read the barcode printed on the label. The code specifies beverage size, brewing time and optimal temperature required to prepare the beverage. All the brewing occurs inside the T DISC, ensuring perfect quality in every cup.

" The #Tassimo is not just any kind of coffee brewer it is amazing. It creates the perfect cup of coffee for you no matter what type of drink you are looking for. It is a brewer and makes all kinds of drinks. I enjoy Lattes, Cappuccinos, Chair Tea, Teas, Hot Chocolate, and much more. It's a brewer my whole family can use. It's not just for coffee lovers.
