Greenlight Wednesday

Lots of competition this week on Greenlight, meaning it was very difficult to choose a Top5 but here we go:

Little Big Mansion by Krisjet Game Design
"Little Big Mansion is a shortform videogame about the complicated relationship between two magicians with opposite powers. They embark on a quest together to explore an old mansion, but quickly find themselves unable to cooperate. It was originally conceived as a game jam prototype in 2013, and has since then become a full-fledged adventure."

My Opinion - Great concept, interesting gameplay and a good pixel design.  If you like games that make you think, this is one for you.

VHS Story by Gamejam
"VHS Story (Video Hero Super Story) is a strategy / tycoon / streetfighter-manager game with 80-90s atmosphere, nostalgia and lots of games/movies references."

My Opinion - This game looks like a lot of fun and is a pretty original concept.  Check out their greenlight page for the trailers to get a better idea of what this is all about.

Albert and Otto
"Albert & Otto is a story about a boy and a magical bunny who journey together and solve puzzles in order to get back what was taken from them. Albert and Otto work together to overcome challenges thrown their way. We soon learn however that what seemed at first like a journey to save the damsel in distress is anything but and that our hero Albert might be hiding something dark."

My Opinion - This looks fantastic and after playing the demo (available in the links below) has a great atmosphere. I'll be buying this when it's released.

Trackday Manager by Arctic Hazard
"Trackday Manager is a 3D simulation/manager multiplayer game where you are in charge of managing a racing team. You are not the driver but the team chief. You control your driver during races by issuing commands through several options while monitoring the race carefully in beautiful 3D surroundings. Your goal is to guide your driver and team to victory."

My Opinion - I'm a sucker for games like this but I'm usually disappointed by the final product (except for Motorsport Manager on the iPhone).  This looks like it might fulfil expectations though and I look forward to giving it a spin when it's released.

Threshold by QuadaTron
"Threshold is a puzzle platformer game where you play as the cute little gnomish wizard, known only as Hood, return home by solving the mysteries of magical, but treacherously unstable, lands. All is not as it seems, however, as depending on which direction Hood faces, the world changes to present different challenges."

My Opinion - The third platformer on the list this week but again, it looks great and like a lot of fun so I couldn't pass up on it.  The particular highlight of Threshold is the beautiful backdrops.
