Giving indie developers a boost


Indie Game Time Machine - EYEMAZE

Every once in a while we see a browser game that really makes us think. There’s just something about it, either a mechanic or visual style, something that means it can’t be ignored - and yet time passes, the world moves on and we all seem to forget how great those games really were. But we, the great historians of indie gaming, want to remember...

So we covered an office chair in aluminium foil, duck-taped on some cardboard wings and silver-spray-painted Pringle tubes. We then hooked it up to a 500lb rocket and sent Dan, the intern, flying off the roof (he will be missed)… And then we built a time machine. You’d better get on because baby, when this thing hits 88 the Doc and I are off to Never Never Land! And by that we mean we're going to break free of the bonds of gravity and quite literally never land. Unless we crash or something. Or get bored. Or hungry...
