The following developers have been announced, check on location for even more Indies!


Degoma - Reggie, his cousin, two scientists and most likely the end of the world.

 

“Reggie, his cousin, two scientists and most likely the end of the world” is the first game by Degoma, a platform game born in the tradition of old marios. But Reggie (a tomato, by the way), can do even more fun stuff: among others, he has de ability to control gravity and he can bury into the ground to hide from enemies and find unseen treasures.

You start controlling Reggie (and his cousin if there is a player two) in a mysterious forest in the middle of the night. Slowly, while you develop your abilities, you find out why you are supposed to be there, meet more relevant characters and reveal some more pieces of the story until the whole picture makes (somehow) sense. Follow Reggie on his adventure and find out why things in the Universe do not march as they are supposed to.


2Awesome Studio - Dimension Drive

The universe is composed of infinite dimensions. Many millennia ago, in one of these dimensions the Ashajuls rose to power. Spaceflight granted them total domination of their galaxy. They rapidly conquered other races, turning them into slaves to further expand their war-machine.

Terror, oppression and desolation reached every corner of the universe. But the Ashajuls wanted more. The discovery of the Dimension Drive allowed them to start a war to conquer all the infinite dimensions of the universe. The Dimension Wars will last forever…

Jackelyne Tywood (a.k.a Jack) is the only survivor of her race, obliterated by the Ashajuls. She was found orbiting planet Vain inside The Manticore when she was only a child along with her personal guardianartificial intelligence, V.E.R.A. The Manticore is the only known ship in the universe with Dimension Drive capability besides the Ashajuls. Atthe age of 14 she was already the best pilot in Vain’s fleet. The only
recollection of her past is a data cube with a recording of her father
last words:
“Jack, run! Live, be happy. We love you!”
