Posted by on

For this recurring segment, we will be highlighting the five biggest stories on IndieDB for the prior week. Whether it's demo releases for upcoming indie games, Kickstarter campaign announcements, or important stories that affect the indie gaming as a whole, you'll find them rounded up here each week.

The Week of February 16, 2018

Two teams of players face off in ZEscape, the upcoming multiplayer game that has you running for your life from the relentless forces of the undead! Developed by Madhouse Software for PC/Steam.

The Six Dragons is an Open World RPG PC game. The game features a huge map, in-depth Crafting system, Randomly generated dungeon portals, harvesting, epic fights, open build class system, a very engaging story/quest line and much more.

Martial laws have been declared to make way for a global hunt, battle-hardened law enforcers have made allies of the most degenerate of criminals, while the rest of the world is paralysed with paranoia; yet who can be trusted? Who can see it, let alone destroy it? That’s for them to worry about. For you are the enemy.

D A S H is a predesigned game but most importantly one which allows you to build one yourself. You take full control of a custom platformer hero and level editor as you create and master your very own 2D platformer world - block by block, enemy by enemy, gap by gap. The game is meant to show how easy and fun it is to design 2D platformer levels, to master and share them!

Renegade X is a tactical First and Third Person Shooter with Real Time Strategy elements, set in the Command & Conquer universe. It is a high quality award-winning free indie game being created on the Unreal Development Kit


Dash Looks really interesting! It's really awesome that you can design your own levels. I hope this helps some people get interested in designing some of their own 2d platformers too! It seems like we're getting a lot of really cool and unique indies this year though. Another one that I'm really looking forward to is Nova Nukers. It's a competitive multiplayer that has a unique spherical stage design. I've never seen another multiplayer use this kind of stage before, so I'm really interested to see how it will work out!

I'm all crazy about the potential of DASH by Baby Duka Games.
Really like that it can turn users into content makers, and the way that level designing suddenly get's a game-like feel is just super fresh. Tools like this can make the creative process much more accessible and welcoming and now that sharing becomes more and more easy it makes my head spin when I think about what a whole community could turn it into.

Join the DASH'ers - I'm already on the team!
