The developers of the indie classic, Journey, are back at it with the spectacular cinematic indie game, ABZU. Creating an exquisite water world, ABZU lets the player live out their underwater fantasies. Swimming with the sea creatures and exploring lost environments deep beneath the waves, the story becomes clear. However the game isn’t so cut and dry, it’s an extremely abstract adventure so imaginations will run wild.
Even though the entire game is relatively short, there is so much to discover. From the different sea creatures to all the incredible rock formations and underwater environments, ABZU is amazing. It’s the perfect game to watch or play when wanting to unwind. Stunning and relaxed are the best words to describe the overall theme of the indie game.

Time To Celebrate
Let’s celebrate all the hard work that has gone into these works of art. AAA games are of course usually more graphically appealing with larger worlds utilizing their bigger budgets but at the same time, they feel more sterile.
When big corporations get their hands on the creative process of developing a video game, things start to change and often times suffer. Indie games avoid this kind of corporate input and instead, the teams create their own vision without the need to appease their bosses. This is what allows indie developers to truly push the envelope and develop the games they want to make. This kind of passion is worth celebrating and that’s exactly the goal of the Indie Weeks at Gigamax Games.

The independent developers, Studio MDHR have brought the world, Cuphead. This indie game offers a host of unique features that made it truly stand out. Hand-drawn, it looks like something straight out of the 1930’s and this is not the only aspect of the game that caught people’s attention. Cuphead is one of the most challenging platformers the Gigamax crew has had the chance to play.
Warning: Hard More
Even though it’s incredibly difficult, the unique art style and exciting gameplay makes it easy to keep on playing. In the beginning, it opens with the player walking through a tutorial to get them comfortable with the controls. After this brief introduction to the game, it sends the gamers off on an adventure. Cuphead is tasked with fending off the sentient vegetables and other whacky creatures around the world. Navigating the overworld allows the player to freely choose missions and bonus levels. Shops and other locations are scattered around this overworld and it adds another level of adventure to Cupheads’ quest.
Overall, the game delivers an incredible experience through and through. From the amazing art and graphics to the challenging platforming along with the difficult 2D shooting mechanics, Cuphead earns its spot as one of the best Indie Spotlights this year.
