HomeIndie Recommends: tabletop and jam video games Recommends: tabletop and jam video games

We’re nearly into 2020 however that doesn’t imply that we’re going to slack off on recommending video games for you. We’re again with one other pair of suggestions to assist fill these lengthy winter nights. The first of those is a extremely robust tabletop RPG and the opposite is without doubt one of the prettiest jam video games I’ve ever seen. Read on for the complete particulars.


If you’ve been studying the weblog you’ll know that I’ve been making an attempt to study extra about what the Tabletop Community has to supply. You could have seen a few of the outcomes of this with the Tabletop Selects Bundle, however the recreation I’ve been most anticipating all through this entire course of is Lancer. You could have heard of this mechs and pilots RPG by way of its jaunt by way of early entry, or from the truth that there are a bunch of well-known artists who’ve contributed illustrations to the mission, however the recreation has lastly launched its first version and it’s nice. 

Much like every tabletop RPG, the worth on this recreation comes from its flexibility and its capability to encourage your group to create memorable tales. Luckily Lancer is each massively open-ended by way of its modular mech design and evocative world. Of course this may be modified to your group’s liking however out of the field there’s a ton to dig into. I may go on concerning the specifics of this admittedly prolonged e book, however know that in my preliminary time with Lancer has been immensely constructive. Time will inform if Lancer can maintain up with the greats, however to this point it’s making a powerful case to grow to be your subsequent favourite.

My Friend is a Raven

I didn’t know what to anticipate from this one getting in. The screenshots regarded attention-grabbing and the reactions have been fairly constructive so I assumed I’d give it a go. My Friend is a Raven was developed for the Epic Megajam, however appears nothing just like the video games I affiliate with the Unreal Engine. Raven’s visuals are additionally its strongest level. Just one take a look at screenshots inform you numerous concerning the recreation. Everything is doodled in with what seems to be a ballpoint pen and the lots of the objects on the planet have a chunky low-poly impact that offers the world the sense that it’s manufactured from cardboard. 

The remainder of My Friend is a Raven works barely much less effectively, nevertheless it’s a pleasant excuse to see the sport’s visuals. The story facilities across the final residing human after an apocalypse and his titular corvid pal. The writing is attention-grabbing sufficient that I by no means received bored, and the sport’s gentle point-and-click puzzles are sufficient to make you assume however not sufficient to hamper progress. 

For the low value of free, it’s laborious to not discover one thing to love in My Friend is A Raven and is price it for the visuals alone.
