Event Coverage


Year in Review 2013 Quarter 04


What a massive line up we have for you in these Quarterly reviews.
Developers have doubled the amount of games listed on indieDB since last years awards.
So please bare with these larger Quarterly reviews as we try to cover all the 2013 headlines.
Join us in celebrating the games of 2013, its a big list that only gets bigger so lets crack on.



Life Goes On is a puzzle platformer where you must navigate a murderous gauntlet of spikes, flames, and other deathtraps to claim the prize at the end. Your only resource? An endless stream of courageous knights who have some difficulty with the concept of "self-preservation". Fling knights into a spike pit to build a bridge, or load them into a cannon as impromptu ammunition... instead of being a setback, in this game dying is how you pave the way for the next guy!


The Stanley Parable is an extremely simple and easy-to-explain game about choice, story, failure, and why none of it probably mattered in the first place. You'll figure it out, I believe in you.


M.A.V. is a 3rd person mech simulation game centered around a highly customizable vehicle.This game is about making it your own. Your M.A.V. will fully reflect your play style, your in game status, and your personal likes. Intense Tactical and Stategic Combat: Battles will be very intense, every shot will count, and strategy will always prevail.
