February 29th, 2012 No comments
Indie Game: The Movie is taking its show on the road to three more venues. If you'd like to see how the metaphorical sausage is made in a selection of high-profile indie games (and, we suppose, in the case of Super Meat Boy, virtual sausage), you can now buy tickets for showings in Raleigh, NC (March 16), Atlanta, GA (March 20), and Palo Alto, CA (March 29).

Previously announced screenings include dates in San Francisco (during GDC), Austin (during SXSW), and several other dates, all listed here.

A Metroid marriage proposal that would make the Chozo proud

February 29th, 2012 No comments
Marriage is a sacred commitment; it's no kind of small thing to consider. You need to show you mean business. You need to put some effort into a proposal.

Jered McFerron did when he decided to rewrite the code for the 1986 NES classic, Metroid, in the C++ programming language. This undertaking wasn't initially to propose to his love, Jenni, but struck as an inspiration mid-project when he knew she was the gal for him.

His approach involved changing key parts of the game to guide her into a special room where Samus would be confronted by the red ring item from The Legend of Zelda, as seen in the image above. Luckily for Jered -- and all of us on the internet with a soft spot for romantic stories -- she said yes.

Whether you're plunking down $30 on the Idle Thumbs Kickstarter, or waiting patiently to pick up Thirty Flights of Loving later on, at least you don't have to wait in the interim before checking out some screens and the above teaser trailer. Your interest is warranted: It's the sequel to Blendo Games' Gravity Bone, an excellent PC game that's still available for free download.

Kickstarter project offers hundreds of video game inspired tunes for a few bucks

February 29th, 2012 No comments
If you've been looking for a way to experience more video game and video game-inspired music, here's a pretty cheap one-way ticket right into the scene. Nubuwo is a site that's been created to cover exactly this kind of music, and over on Kickstarter they've compiled the talent of 12 different musicians across quite a few games into one big bundle for sale.

For $6, you can pick up either a 92-track "Vocal Pack" featuring the likes of Laura Shigihara, Floex, and the great Mega Ran, or a 150-track "Instrumental Pack" with the soundtracks to The Binding of Isaac, Bit Pilot, and ilomilo.

For $9, you get both of those, and for $15 you'll get 25 more tracks from excellent indie games like Spelunky and Antichamber, a couple interview segments with Final Fantasy composers Nobuo Uematsu and Kumi Tanioka, and a few other goodies. Higher donations can get you the tunes on actual CDs, and signed by the composers.
