Quite simply…  the answer to our prayers or Satan in disguise?! Its fate is its own to decide.  This could be a huge success or a gargantuan failure.  If successful this would revolutionize the way games are marketed, sold and experienced.  Guess we will just have to wait and see….

Indie games are awesome!

January 28, 2009

As proof I bring forth an indie game I recently stumbled upon called “The Legend of Princess”.

Quite certainly a thinly veiled homage to the Legend of Zelda series. Particularly “Zelda II: The Adventure of Link”(although not nearly as frustrating or soul destroying).

As you can see, “Legend of Princess” it’s beautifully crafted in 16 bit graphics and plays in a pseudo RPG/platformer side scrolling fashion. The animations are fantastic and the game overall feels very comfortable. It may not be challenging, but it provides a small escape in the form of mindless fun. And of course Zelda fans will enjoy the fun quirks and similarities with the actual series.

Here is a handy link in which you can partake in the limited(only one level) fun.

And of course the creator, whom we have to thank for this little gem.
