The theme for February’s meeting is playing a multiplayer indie game. The game is: B.O.O.M. You Win (by Kickin Rad Games) Get the game here**: https://kickin-rad-games.itch.io/boomyouwindemo Trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=674PJvYqCA8 Developer's website: https://kickinradgames.com/ Metacritic: n/a HL2B: n/a ** The game isn't officially released yet so we'll be playing the demo version. If you end up liking it, consider sending them some $$ support! The agenda will be: 7:00 – pizza and meet-and greet Whenever that’s done – play B.O.O.M You Win You do not need to bring anything with you to attend this meeting. I had a chance to play this a couple times at a video game convention recently and it was an absolute blast (ha ha, watch the trailer if you don’t get it). It’s a faced-paced reimagining of “hot potato” with some sassy narration on top.
The theme of March’s meeting is discussing a single-player indie game. The game is: Celeste (by Matt Makes Games, Inc.) Get the game here: https://store.steampowered.com/app/504230/Celeste/ Trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=70d9irlxiB4 Developer's website: http://www.mattmakesgames.com/ Metacritic: https://www.metacritic.com/game/pc/celeste HL2B: https://howlongtobeat.com/game.php?id=42818 The agenda will be: 7:00 – pizza and discuss Celeste Whenever that’s done – whatever multiplayer games we feel like playing; maybe something we played in a previous meeting, or maybe something we haven’t played yet. I’ll have some options ready and we can figure it out during dinner. You do not need to bring anything with you to attend this meeting. This game didn’t really catch my attention until I saw that it was one of the Game Awards (https://thegameawards.com/) finalists for 2018 Game of the Year. Not only was it one of the finalists, but it was the only indie game in the finalist pool. Between that and a 97% recommendation rating on Steam, I think we’re in for a treat giving this one a spin.
