worldsfastestpizza

It turns out the World’s Fastest Pizza is so fast it was delivered yesterday. The 2D deliver-’em-up by Oscar Brittain was released yesterday on Desura, and has received coverage on both Eurogamer.net and IndieGameMag.

World’s Fastest Pizza was one of the games showcased at last month’s SK Games’ Playtest Evening, and is available from both Desura and directly from the developer for $1.99. You can also vote for WFP on Steam Greenlight.

Scavenger launches on Desura

Scavenger - Desura

Retro fans it’s time to ready your lasers, for on the weekend the Flame Collective released their wireframe space game Scavenger. The first title by the Perth studio, Scavenger puts you in the pilot seat of a scavenging vessel that must navigate dangerous asteroid fields and avoid rogue drones in order to collect the minerals necessary to survive. In addition to being a homage to the appearance of Asteroids and the gameplay of Wing Commander, Scavenger is also set to feature glitchy-styled music and a whole pile of in-game upgrades to keep you entertained.

Genghiscon indie video games panel

What are you doing this Saturday (15 January 2011)? If you answered “Attending the Genghiscon indie video games panel… obviously!” then you already have a fantastic weekend in store for you. Otherwise, keep reading and update you plans!

What is Genghiscon? Here’s a description from their website:

GenghisCon is a student-priced convention, filled with games, activities, panels, discussions, and workshops covering science fiction, fantasy, roleplaying, board games, and more.

Given the high degree of overlap between indie video game developers and other types of geeks (I refer you to the Venn Diagram of Geekdoms), there will be a lot for game developers to love at Genghiscon. Plus, it’s only $25 for a weekend of education, fun, debate, and solidarity!

Onto the indie video games panel in particular…

Here are the details:

  • Time/Date: 16:00 – 17:00, Saturday 15 January
  • Location: Junior Common Room, St. George’s College, Mounts Bay Road, Crawley

And the list of panellists:

Look at that line-up! There’s sure to be some thoughtful conversation, and you could be a part of it.

Ask Avril about developing a community-driven web-based role-playing game. Ask Chris about how to be hardcore indie. Ask Brad about his fish-smelling game. Ask Scott about running the world’s largest website dedicated to independent game development!

Thanks to Genghiscon for inviting us to help with the indie games panel. 🙂
