Escaped Chasm is a short indie game developed by Temmie Chang. The game is inspired by Undertale and the developer Toby Fox is involved. Fox compose the soundtrack of Escaped Chasm. The plot of the game is you are controlling a lonely girl. Which is the characters name in the game, Lonely girl wants to escape the real world. She loves to draw characters and wanted to belong in another world. The game tackles issues on depression and loneliness. One day, she notice her parent is missing and writes in her journal. The girl have a pet snake named Melody and watches TV. Escaped Chasm is 15-20 minutes long. You can complete it in a day. There is 4 endings good or bad depending on your choice. Temmie uses RPGmaker to developed the game.
Back on the subject, the girl find a person with horns. He is very amuse to the girl suffering. He tells her that save her parents. After finding them dead in their room. Lonely girl makes a choice to stay behind or save them. Overall, I love the flash animation that gives the game depth, Melodramatic atmosphere and chilling horror music. Temmie and Toby are a power pair. There is a issues with animated sequence is froze up and have to restart it. This was a very well-made game and I hoping for a full version. I love Undertale and I see this game took inspiration from it. If you want to play this game. Players can demo it and follow Temmie Chang on Twitter.

Hello readers it’s been a while since I did a indie game hands on post. We will explore two games SpiritSphere and Meme Machine. These games play very causal and fans will love these titles. SpiritSphere is a ping-pong Windjammers indie game developed by Eendhoorn Games. The game draws inspiration from Legend of Zelda due to top-down camera angle. Spiritsphere plays like air-hockey with local multiplayer. I wish there was online in this game. There is different game modes such play against cpu. Earn coins to get new spheres and Squash mode. Squash mode is each player has a turn to hit the wall. Although if it’s not your turn, the other player scores. Players can choose up to 4 players for team match. If you don’t want to play with a partner. Go head to head with your friend.
The main goal of SpiritSphere is to get the sphere on the other player side. Simple enough right but wait there is more. There are different items and powerup to give player a edge. SpiritSphere features a small roster of characters but more will come. The game graphic is NES 8-bit style with eccentric soundtrack. The game is easy to pick for newcomers and veterans. Each character have unique abilities for knocking spheres. My thoughts on SpiritSphere as a whole. The game is very fun arcade-ish with retro value. NES fans will feel right at home with this. Grab a buddy and talk trash with this indie game. Make sure you get SpiritSphere on Steam and Nintendo Switch.

Lets start with Down Ward, is a indie that follow Gabe. Gabe is a little owl that’s tasked with relighting four wilds towers. Players could gather feathers to light up wards and complete levels. Move camera angel to look for feathers. Down Ward was inspired with classic Game Boy graphics. The enemies stand out for the background. Player have a choice to use the gamepad or keyboard. There is a flight mechanic which reminds me of Owlboy. The flying takes a while to get used to. Player’s could get the hang of it easily. Gabe have a feather light attack, which can help you solve puzzles.
Also defeats enemies on the way. There are other mechanic such as wall-banking, upward zig-zag, flight momentum and more. Each level range from easy and difficult. I had some fun with this game and hope to see more from it. At first, I had trouble with the control on the keypad. Slowly knowing the ropes and lighting up towers. The soundtrack is beautiful and gloomy atomsphere. Make sure to try out Down Ward on GameJolt. Support fisholith and tune for more updates on the game.
