Flynn: Son of Crimson - Musical Medley by Jacob Lincke - Youtube
Just discovered Flynn Son of Crimson, in development by Studio Thunderhorse. It looks beautiful, and the music sounds very fitting. I'd say it looks like another hack n slash with axes and swords but some of the monsters look quite unique and terrifying, done in a lovely #pixel sauce. We only have this video containing a musical medley by composer Jacob Lincke to go by so far, but it's enough! Can't wait to see more, team.

Recursed - Release trailer - Youtube
Reading a review of Recursed on #RPS. Sounds very trippy / conceptual. My head was spinning with Braid on XBOX years ago, I dunno if I have the mental capacity for this one. :) Love the music / vibe though.

FIGHT FOR YOUR LIFE | Let's Try The Dark Within by Nauris Amatnieks - Youtube
It's not out yet but The Dark Within looks like a wonderfullly #pixel adventure with a strange dimension switching mechanic. Puzzles abound, new worlds to explore. I hope they change the name because there's another, more popular game with the same name.

Legends of Localization Book 1: The Legend of Zelda - Embedly
Legends of Localization is a great series of books published by FanGamer. Clyde Mandelin has done an incredible-looking book on an in-depth comparitive study of the Japanese and English versions of Zelda 1. Included are side-by-side screenshots, audio waveforms and more. This is geek bliss, and great timing for the hollies.
Ittle Dew 2 Announcement Trailer - Youtube
Ittle Dew 2 looks to be another heavily Zelda-inspired action adventure game. I'm really enjoying the music. The environments look quite varied and gameplay looks rich and enjoyable without being cumbersome. Coming to #Steam, #PS4, #XB1

Creepy Castle - Kickstarter Trailer - Youtube
Watching the Kickstarter trailer for Creepy Castle. The game goes well beyond the fascination with NES games by about 5 years with C64-like #pixel graphics and similarly chippy music. But it blends far more recent RPG elements of levelling up, bosses, items and turn-based combat into the mix. This is a truly unique looking game. Lots of fun!
