Ophidian Wars: Opac's Journey
Posted by Alex Jordan on
Another colleague from the Penny Arcade forums, Small Cave Games, has released Ophidian Wars: Opac's Journey on Xbox Live Indie Games for just $1. This is a 2D Metroidvania-style game that will serve as a prelude to an RPG that Small Cave Games is working on. It's been out for three days and has already gotten some pretty good reviews and a high rating, so check it out.
In three days, it's also gotten more than twice as many reviews as Around The World has in a month. (Oh, by the way, happy One Month Anniversary, Around The World!) Not to conjure up more jealousy or squeeze more blood from this stone, but: I shouldn't have made an educational game! (Don't worry, I'm quitting this refrain right now.)
And, as a direct result, I'm currently working on a game that will probably retard your child's maturation. More info on Project Squish to follow.
