RIME is one of those mysterious abstract puzzles from the first second the game begins. Waking up, alone on a desert island with nothing but the clothes on your back and the crabs at your feet, the story has yet to come into focus. Developed by Tequila Works and released in 2017, RIME faced mixed reviews from the critics and fans. Always preferring a first-hand look at a game, the Gigamax crew decided it was time to see for themselves.
The game is beautiful but the sea is absolutely the superior environment. The land seemed a bit stiff but the water physics and graphics really were in a league of their own when compared to the land. Even so, the cell shading was enjoyable and easy on the eyes when walking around the interesting world of RIME.

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.

People know when humans fall, Human Fall Flat. That holds true when it comes to the game, Human Fall Flat. No grace and a clumsy disposition make this silly puzzle game absolutely sure to deliver a laugh. The wonky mechanics, unique environments, and a bunch of in-game interactables make each level one to remember.
The goal of the game is to solve the puzzles that stand in your way of jumping off the map and landing in a new world. However, each step a player takes in another opportunity to cause absolute disaster. With the controls intentionally making progression difficult, it creates a challenging experience even with the simple puzzles. Are you ready to wattle through the unique world with Gigs and Mack? Things get interesting pretty quickly. You won’t want to miss this one.

Indie games have a special place in the Gigamax crew’s heart. Being an independent organization, developing, producing and publishing a complete video game isn’t easy. These games are usually put together by small teams that pour their heart and soul into their adventures. Every now and then, Gigamax hosts and Indie Week, showcasing some of the classics and new arrival to the indie game scene.
This is a little look at the indie games the Gigamax has celebrated. Be sure to keep checking back for information on upcoming Indie Weeks!
Find the Indie Game playlist below!
Some of the games that make up this playlist include Rocket League, Oxenfree, Cuphead, Enter the Gungeon, The Darwin Project and so many more. With some incredible indie games coming in 2018, you can be sure this playlist will continue to expand!
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 Indie Week at Gigamax Games.

The Gigamax crew begin their adventure with The Darwin Project thanks to receiving an Alpha key for Steam. Jumping on the brand new Gigamax Gaming PC, Gigs and Mack were ready to see what this new Battle Royale game had to offer. The crew was not disappointed with what they saw.

A New Take On A Beloved Game Mode
A much smaller and confined experience when compared to other Battle Royale games like PUBG or Fortnite, The Darwin Project is something completely new. 7 players to a map, the game is focused on survival rather than conflict. Players are tasked with staying alive in the harsh, frozen environment. Building a fire is a necessity and upgrading your weapons is a must. Periodically, a hexagonal section of the map will turn red and become uninhabitable. Players will need to work around this obstacle and take refuge in the rapidly shrinking map.
There’s no telling when The Darwin Project will be available to the public. The Gigamax crew will be keeping a close eye on this game as the small, Alpha experience lived up to expectations. Even for an Alpha, there were only a few changes we noticed need to be made. The future looks bright for The Darwin Project.

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.
Cuphead: Indie Spotlight on YouTube
Thank you so much for taking the time to watch! More Cuphead episodes will be coming soon. This game is unlike anything else out right now and it absolutely deserves a playthrough. Because of how challenging this indie game actually is, it will take some time to make it to the end. Come offer some support with a Like or Comment!
Uppercut Games was generous enough to offer the Gigamax crew a beta key to try out their latest Rogue-Like game, City of Brass. This Indiana Jones meets Bioshock adventure was something special from the very beginning. The environments and simplistic gameplay mixed with sneaky traps and dangerous enemies kept things interesting every step of the way. City of Brass may be simple at heart but the level design is spectacular.
It begins with the character spawning in and it’s all on from there. With no quests or missions, the goal is to make it to the end of the level and advance to the next stage. Each stage is riddled with booby traps, skeleton enemies, and treasures beyond your wildest dreams. The treasure is used to purchase upgrades from the genies located throughout the map. Players have an objective arrow that will guide them to the end of the level, they’re also timed so it’s important to keep moving.
City of Brass Is A Hidden Gem
This hidden gem of a game didn’t get much attention by the media. This is surprising considering it was developed with the help of ex-Bioshock developers. Overall the game came out great and the Gigamax crew is excited to keep on working their way through the unique levels and fight the bosses along the way. There’s no telling what other secrets are hidden throughout the City of Brass. As any fan of Rogue-like games knows, there is always a new, exciting experience to be had.
Be sure to stick around as the Gigamax Crew continues adding to this exciting games playlist. Both Gigs and Mack can’t wait to jump back in and see what else the City of Brass has to offer.

When the Xbox One X releases in November it will be the most powerful console on the market and to show that their support for the console, Microsoft detailed a full list of titles that will receive enhancements for the new system. Microsoft’s Head of Marketing, Aaron Greenberg, had hinted toward the list during an Xbox livestream at the recent Gamescom event and mentioned that two big games receiving enhancements were Quantum Break as well as Halo 5.

It has been a little over a week since Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice was released and the developers are already patching a variety of bugs that have been plaguing players. While the independently developed game was praised as one of the best games to come out this year, it certainly had its issues. That’s why the developer, Ninja Theory, rushed to get this patch out detailed here on their blog.
There were bugs that would break the game or stop character progression entirely and these were the first to be addressed. They also fix a variety of collision issues that would send the player out of the game world and make it impossible to proceed. PC players will also be happy to hear that an issue involving the menu not loading has been patched.
There’s No Stopping Ninja Theory
Ninja Theory doesn’t plan on stopping either. The blog post also detailed that they’re still hard at work looking into bug reports so expect more updates in the near future. One patch, in particular, is the performance issues that PC players with AMD GPUs have experienced.
Below we have a full list of the patch notes that you can also find on Ninja Theory’s blog. While releasing broken games should never be acceptable, it’s hard for a small development team to take care of all the issues right at launch, sometimes it takes time for the community to find the problems and aid in pointing out where they are. Hellblade was an excellent game that should be in every gamers library especially after the patch. Gigamax managed to beat the game while only encountering one game breaking bug. If you’ve had issues make sure you report it to firstname.lastname@example.org.

Bluehole had some upsetting news for fans of PUBG as the highly anticipated Public Test Server update was put on hold. According to the developer, “the test server build is not stable enough to roll out.”(http://bit.ly/2u2wodh). The patch they have lined up is a substantial one, including new weapons, skins, and a car horn. Due to complications with a client crash bug, the July monthly update will now be moved to the 3rd of August.
See what’s waiting for players in the next big patch and find a preview of just how big PUBG is becoming.
What You Can Expect
One of the additions to the patch which made people lose their minds is the addition of a horn. Drivers can now honk their horns which will default to the left mouse button. Tweet after Tweet, people expressed their approval as though this filled a serious void within the battleground.
The New Boom Stick
Get ready for a new weapon, the Mark 14 Enhanced Battle Rifle. The Mk14 EBR, chambered in 7.62 will accept all sniper attachments and have a selective fire option, too. This means players can either use it to sweep a room or pick off enemies at a distance. It will be exclusive to crates, so expect this new gun to be falling out of the sky August 3rd.
A New Look
Ready for a makeover? PUBG’s monthly update will include its first new face presets and new hairstyles. These will come at a cost and are expected to be priced at 3,000 in-game currency.
Time To Get Hardcore
First-Person Only servers will be one of the most impressive game changing updates that have come to PUBG. Creating a more hardcore shooter experience, players will have the option to choose between standard and first-person only servers. This means looking around corners or over cover will expose a player instead of them having the ability to just move around the camera.
This option will cater to the more hardcore crowd but could also be a nice change of pace for casual players. It will be important to keep in mind the lean buttons (defaulted to Q and E) which will greatly increase a players chance of survival.
Bluehole will, of course, be sticking to their regular maintenance with the latest patch. A few UI changes, user experience update, and server stability will be included. For a more detailed look at the subtle changes, take a look at Blueholes official announcement.
PUBG Just Keeps On Growing
PUBG just hit a major milestone. Selling over 6 million copies according to Bluehole and the game also reached a new concurrent peak personal record of 481,291. This substantial growth has put PUBG ahead of Fallout 4 in the Steam charts. Indie games continue to surpass all expectations. With games like PUBG making headlines and breaking records, there’s no telling what the future has in store for indie developers and their artwork.
