Indie gem Lone Survivor coming to PS3 & Vita

cover

A title that caused quite a stir last year for all the right reasons was a horror indie game called Lone Survivor. The title comes from the Superflat Games and the mind of Jasper Byrne who states “it’s a game very personal to me that took almost seven years to get right.  I guess you could call it a blend of ‘Lynchian’ psychological horror, point’n’click adventure mechanics and a virtual pet-like ‘physical and mental survival simulation’ – the idea being that how you choose to survive is up to you.”

What does it mean to be an “indie dev”? Candygun Games Interview

Screen shot 2013-03-04 at 3.55.05 PM

Over the past 7 years, the prominence of the independent developer or “indie dev” in the home console space has grown exponentially. From small beginnings with the likes of James Silva and The Dishwasher: Dead Samurai and Johnathan Blow with his critical hit Braid, the common denominator of all indie games that seems to shine through is the creator’s iron will to express an idea. These developers, whether they be individuals crafting away for 5 years on a single title or a small team of college friends combining their skills and taking to Kickstarter, all want the same thing – to send the  industry a message of what they’re about, a message of what they want to accomplish.

Toiling away in Hamburg, the second largest city in Germany, the tiny team at Candygun Games has been bringing to life a title they feel epitomizes their very mission and culture. Something that represents their message , which is “producing entertaining gameplay focused titles with fantastic visuals”.

Roger Joswig, Managing Director of the independent developer, puts it succinctly: “When we prototype our games we start without any visual design and modify the game until it’s fun to play. The visual design is then added on top to support the game design.” It’s this focus on ‘entertainment first, beauty second’ that looks to set their next title Dollar Dash apart from the rest.
