Here at Ground Kontrol, we’re obviously big fans of making gaming a social experience. Even if you’ve got your eyes solely on the Ms. Pac-Man high score or you prefer to play pinball solo, being around other fans of arcade gaming is essential to the experience. To that end, we try to feature some games that you can absolutely play at home, but are more fun with friends and a few drinks! This month, Indie Game Night focuses on two recent releases: The fast-paced feather-flying Duck Game, and the Minesweeper-inspired puzzle battle ManaCollect!
Duck Game (Landon Podbielski / Adult Swim Games)
Enter the futuristic year of 1984, an age where ducks run wild in a frantic battle for glory. Blast your friends with Shotguns, Net Guns, Mind Control Rays, Saxophones, Magnet Guns, and much, much more. Think Adult Swim does Smash Bros.!
ManaCollect (Tagizen Clock / Fruitbat Factory)
ManaCollect is an action packed take on the classic Minesweeper as an action/puzzle game. Two contestants compete on a grid based arena to collect hidden mana by following numbered hints and unleash special attacks to drain their opponents mana.
Join us in our lounge as we explore the often retro-inspired world of independent games with your host Rich Lau! As always, it’s totally free to play – you might just find a new favorite game, and make a few friends while you’re at it!
