#2 Posted by Donkeysraliens (146 posts) -

Lets hope this is a step up from the indie 'games' you find on newgrounds hu?

Nice, I was wondering what I should do for when I eat breakfast. 42 minutes should be enough time! Thanks dudes!

#4 Posted by Googly (245 posts) -

The only indie games I have are Groov and I Made A Game With Zombies in It, but both are recommended.

Oh man the fast cut on the buzzer noises...got me all laughin' hard.

#18 Posted by dietmango (1667 posts) -

The ezmuze was really interesting. Nice one.

#19 Posted by Mu5hy (124 posts) -

yeah I could do another 5 minutes of Dont B Nervous before I punch that girl in the face.

#20 Posted by Emandudeguyperson (2501 posts) -

Streets of Fury looks crazy awesome.

#21 Posted by CharlesAlanRatliff (5463 posts) -

Streets of Fury is amazing.

#22 Posted by Turbo_Toaster (978 posts) -

Oh my sweet jesus, yes.

#23 Posted by TsuHai (109 posts) -

I'm really thankfull for this - noone else covers these games, and i'd really like to know what they are before buying...
#24 Posted by Th3dz (332 posts) -

I really hope they will do this again, when my game is up :P

#25 Posted by Wiseblood (658 posts) -

Streets of Fury Endurance Run plz.

#26 Posted by VWGTI (1919 posts) -

The editing makes this QL incredibly funny.

#27 Posted by wwfundertaker (1404 posts) -

Im still laughing, great quicklook. Some weird ass games.

#28 Posted by Sarumarine (2305 posts) -

Hydro Electric Worker looks like the winner of these indie games.

 "Fuck that bird!"

#29 Posted by Fjord (4 posts) -

This is the best quick look of all time.
Even better than the New Super Mario Bros. quick look!
edit: Streets of Fury actually looked like a really funny game.

#32 Posted by MachoFantastico (4890 posts) -

Please do more of these, maybe a new feature on the site. 

#33 Posted by Crushed (884 posts) -

Aw, no Angry Barry? :(

#34 Edited by Death_Burnout (3800 posts) -

i so so hope the Dont B Nervous game was deliberately made that way ironically

#35 Posted by MjHealy (1877 posts) -

Should be quite interesting...

#36 Posted by tumes (207 posts) -

Good god the editing on that first buzz is hilarious.

#37 Posted by Death_Burnout (3800 posts) -

i adore when Jeff takes the drivers seat for music making, even for something as simple as ezmuze.  
Roll 'dem Shakers!

" Some indiegames are awesome, The Dishwasher?? World of Goo?? "
Those are in the actual live arcade. These are the Live Indie Games, which are created by just, like, a dude. Or two. As opposed to World of Goo's five (five, right?), I guess. And the Zombies game is made by the same group that made The Dishwasher.
 I guess it's hard to explain, and it's probably because there's such a slim line. I guess it has to do with budget? watevr

Ok, I now expect one of these every 1-2 months, then community games of the year along side your regular hotness. Do it.

In Z0MB1ES, the theme returns at the end for the epic outro; the whole song is a wicked concerto of 7 movements.  It's not brilliant, but you can download it here.
Anyway, thanks for the ...er... quasi-praise, though, I guess :-P

"Developed by... Razor 1911."
That was awesome.

#42 Posted by clintlandon (62 posts) -

Streets of Fury has made me realize we need new games in the classic MK  style. It's ridiculous, and AWESOME! And seems like, in the right hands, could be cool in an ironic way.

#43 Posted by MysteriousBob (6272 posts) -

They didn't even show the Streets of Fury combo videos. Believe it or not, it actually has aerial raves.

#44 Posted by supercubedude (459 posts) -

Hell yes, Soldat! Jeff knows what's up.

No wonder Microsoft keeps this shit buried at the very bottom

Most of it cost about a pound so you get what you pay for.

#48 Posted by Deusoma (3032 posts) -

So it looks like the Indie Games concept was a catastrophic failure. The only one of those that didn't look like absolute trash was the Johnny Platform bit.

#49 Posted by Brendan (8157 posts) -

I think it's cool that the creators can have fun making these games, but none of them seem much better than stuff you can play on shockwave.com for free.

That christmas-room thing almost made me fall out of my chair. Hilarious!
