After all these years, and growing up with Windows 3.1, I have seen an entire evolution of computers and software. Touch screens and large resolutions were a pipe dream just 15 years ago. Now it's the norm. Going from a Packard Bell (yes, before HP) that couldn't run 3D Ultra Mini...

Indiecade and Ouya At GaymerX2

One of my favorite parts of small conventions is the independent games that can get some inexpensive display space. Not just action games (though the sort of standard fare get their day to play also), but the more interesting, more personal titles can shine. Especially in a show like
GaymerX—with a group of people that, by mandate, want to celebrate the openness and individuality of others—you can find a lot of original alternatives to more standard gaming fare.

So I’d like to share a few of the games that surprised me the most, and honestly the ones that fascinate me the most.


These weren’t the only games on display: Hugpunx was about hugging people and not keeping score, Blue Lacuna proves that text adventures are still a thing (and are as long as a novel), Triad had the goal of assisting helping three people comfortably share a bed with their cat (no joke, it was pretty frustrating watching that one girl roll off the bed over and over), and Read-Only Memories was developed by the founders of GaymerX (Jessica will have a preview soon.). But the first three above were definitely the most intriguing of the bunch.

Beyond that, there were also big-name franchises on hand, like
Watch Dogs from Ubisoft and 2K’s Borderlands: The Prequel and WWE 2K15, but this was a place for the indies to strut their stuff.

They were here. They were queer. Some were not. But they were all still awesome.
