        It was a cool game, though I remember that I stopped playing it because after a while I had completely forgotten where to go next or something and didn’t feel like trying to piece that all together. I should get back to it, considering that it’s been 5 years.

          Definitely. You basically can’t go anywhere without tripping into a fucking boss, which means sometimes you’ll get walled. Or you’ll find there’s a single boss that’s like oppositely attuned to your fucking build and twice as hard as they should be.

          But that’s honestly the fun of the game, and it’s got a total of four characters now with their own arsenals. Can’t recommend it enough.

      No such thing. All indie games are shit just by virtue of being indie. You need a real budget and good marketing to make a good game.

        Indies are overwhelmingly shit because there’s no barrier to entry. Any Tom, Dick and Harry can make an indie game and put it on some storefront, and because of that, there’s a shitload of shovelware.

        Rarely, there’s an indie game that is actually good, but the vast majority aren’t.

            well maybe it’s my ADHD retardbrain but I tried playing it and it’s literally just checking documents. Is there actual gameplay later on?

              It’s a story thing, if you think it’s just checking papers you’re missing out on the nuance of the situation you’re in. That being said I couldn’t really play it for that long either, but I did enjoy it enough to keep coming back and finishing it.

          >Techbros sell lots of drugs for cheap usually, Ludds sell a lot of food, independants are great for raiding with mercs, same with Pirates, a good investment in cargo ships and a force can get you steady supplies and selling material, the Diktat gets you lobsters for fucking days and shit’s great, rest are kinda ehh

          Yes it is. Just not the full game, same case with FF7R

            having a party system mixed into bullet hell makes no sense. So far it seems TOO casual. Undertale had that perfect balance of comfy without being boring

              A lot of bullet hell attacks don’t make sense either, not that it matters since it doesn’t affect the story and it seems to fit the enemies quite well.
              >So far it seems TOO casual.
              I mean sure, you’re only at the second chapter, so I imagine it will have harder enemies later chapters. But you gotta admit, bosses like Jevil, final boss Queen and solo Spamton are quite difficult and you are guaranteed to die there.
              Also
              easy =/= bad
              What matters is how fun the game is and how creative the attacks are. That’s what makes both Undertale and Deltarune quite charming.

      Eternial Senia, despite being extremely short and a FREE game (not free as in gacha butnactually free), it was a fine game
      Fun to play and I enjoyed myself.

      Can’t say I’ve played many, lots of them are pixel shit side scrollers. I don’t need graphics but I’m real wary about them.

      Threadly reminder that CDPR both developed and published the Witcher 3, making it an independent (or indie) game.

        CDPR is too big to be an indie though
