Indie Jeff's Weekly Picks: September 5-10

I'd like to begin this week's post with a bit of news about Achron, Hazardous Software's recently-released RTS that features a mind-blowing time travel mechanic. This past week when Hazardous patched the game to improve pathfinding and such, they also announced that each purchase of a new copy (including pre-orders and past purchases) will now include an extra copy of the game that can be gifted to a friend. I think it's a pretty good move to give the game some extra exposure, given that Achron is at its best when played online versus human opponents. Ozzie's review is pretty much in-line with how I feel: While the game has some foibles, the time-travelling stuff is the most revolutionary mechanic I've seen in a RTS game in ages.

In last week's picks, I included a trailer for the indie adventure game TRAUMA (see top image) by Krystian Majewski. It's an adventure title that garnered several award nominations at various indie festivals in 2010, but has just recently been released for public consumption. It's a refreshingly adult experience that takes place inside the dreams of a woman recuperating from a car crash. Each "chapter" of the game is a surreal micro-story that informs the larger narrative and character development. All of this is presented in an intuitive interface that allows players to navigate the game's 2D photos--its primary art assets--in 3D space.
