    I bet when you hear the phrase "indie games," your mind doesn't immediately run to stuff that looks like this:   



      

    This crazy-looking giant-robot extravaganza is Hawken, a multiplayer-only mech shooter coming to the PC. Hawken earns the "indie" moniker because the home page for the developer, Adhesive Games, lists all of nine people (and three former employees) working on this thing. I'm sure the use of Unreal Engine 3 has eased the development process a bit, but you have to admit it's a pretty damn impressive-looking project for such a small group of people to turn out. (How well it plays is yet to be seen, of course.)

    This footage has been floating around since last week, but I just caught it today and wanted to bring it to the attention of anyone who hasn't seen it. Consider me interested, and consider yourself informed!

    We had the fighting game renaissance. Now we need a multiplayer mech shooter renaissance.

    Man, this game looks really nice, and has some great art design (that giant battleship overhead was awesome), but the gameplay just does not look fun at all to me. It's all bunnyhops and circle-strafing. Not looking like my type of game, but definitely good on those guys for making it look that nice.

    I think it looks great. I would love if they got picked up by a bigger dev so this game could get better. I look forward to seeing the game when its finished.

    Getting picked up by a big developer wouldn't neccesarily make it better, in fact it would probably make it worse.

    Makes me wonder about the Mechwarrior reboot,  hope it's not disappointing.   On the other hand this game looks pretty fantastic.

    Looks and sounds great, doubly so considering only nine guys made it, but the gameplay looks dull.

    Fuck this game looks awesome. Goes to show you that Clffy B's talk about the death of mid-level games was total bull-shit. Just the same as everything that son of a bitch says.

    Shit if they slapped a Mechwarrior license on this (if that even still exists somewhere), I'd be down diggity forever and I'd be satisfied. Hell, I'd be happy without it as well, but this looks so great it almost looks like it should have been a Mechwarrior game.

    9 guys?? That's seriously impressive. As someone who was majoring in game design but is now witching over to English, this actually makes me kind of regret the decision.. 

    I was especially impressed by the high quality of the audio. Had my speakers up high for this and it didn't disappoint.

    Just from my experience of multiplayer only indie games, very few ever do that well and end up being shells of what they could really be. I just think with the backing of say... epic they would get that extra boost to make this something special. I dont want a 100 person team on it, just someone to give them some help.
