YES! That's it. Thank you. (No wonder it was hard to find.)

It was a graphical dungeon crawler in the 90's, or maybe early 2000's. It involved killing kobolds and I think giant ants. It had a spell called "Clairvoyance" that showed the area around the player, to help look for secret areas.

That's all I remember.

I've been looking for an indie game - recent... it was a sidescrolling adventure that seemed pretty directionless... you could play nim on the side of the street, and go up an elevator and blow something up or something.... I think you played a TOASTER.


I am pretty sure this was a game on the TIGSource frontpage. You were a walking toaster, you wandered around doing random things in an Adventure game format. You could fly to space in a "Rock-It Ship" (shaped like an electric guitar).

The game's name was just a sequence of arbitrary numbers. I used to have it bookmarked, but no longer. I searched the front page, but to no avail. Hopefully somebody can help you find this one!

Ok, this is a half-remembered one from my childhood, so it might be made up.

NES game
The gameplay was sort of similar to Legend of Zelda, in that you would go from screen to screen, clearing out enemies, fighting bosses, and finding the occasional secret.  Graphically, it reminds me sort of Super Bomberman (the character and enemies were sort of a 3/4 side view, the blocks were more of a top-down perspective).  I think you were a Ninja and things had a sort of Japanese flair, but I could be misremembering.

Thoughts?

Logged in here just to ask this. Recently saw a video demo of a game. The gist of the game is that you are a spy of some sort and you are required to break into a building. You can jump through windows and attack guards and such but the most interesting game play element is that you can earn an ability in which you can access the circuits of the building and re-route switches and such (if a guard presses and light switch they will instead activate the elevator). The game was very recent and may not even be available yet but I cant for the life of me remember the name of the game. Any ideas?

This one is called Gunpoint, and it's being developed by Tom Francis, a writer for PC Gamer.  It's not out yet, but I'm sure there'll be an announcement on TIGSource when it's released.

Nope and nope (had to look up Druaga).  The screen didn't scroll, it was just screen after screen after screen.

There were a ton of games made in that series, so potentially it's not that exact one but a similar title: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Super_Chinese

Guys, I have some serious problems.

Japanese indie shmup from several years back, maybe 2010 at the absolute latest. Almost entirely black and white graphics with simple line drawings. The unique thing about it it's a crossbreed between normal shmup gameplay and the WarioWare games - every few seconds, you're hit with a random shmup-style action to perform, from killing a couple of enemies to collecting items to breaking down an oncoming wall. I remember it being very difficult and kind of aggravating, but I was much younger when I played it, so it might have just been me sucking.

I should find it in a little bit here (I'm sure it's somewhere in my circus of junk hard drives and USB dongles), but if anyone remembers it, 'twould be helpful!

Found it: Made in Wired.

Hello

So I had played a game about 1 year ago maybe it was a demo I guess, it's an indie game which is a puzzle-platformer where you control 2 characters, a boy and a girl. The graphics looked a bit like spelunky. Anyone remember it?

It doesn't look like Spelunky, but you might mean Treasure Treasure.
