This month, Indie Game Night is featuring two awesome productions from Portland’s indie game scene: TinderBox, the 4-player indie arcade cabinet, and one of its fan favorite games – Sh**ty Voltron!
Sh**ty Voltron [Jack Meade, Oliver Smith, Terence Lee, Clifton B]
The name kind of speaks for itself. Each player controls one limb, QWOP-style. The goal is to get to your Sword of Power and defeat the UFO destroying the city. Sh**ty Voltron is hilarious and hilariously difficult to conquer, but with 4 capable humans controlling this superpowered robot, can you really blame anyone but yourself? Game by Terence Lee (programming, sound), Jack Meade (art) and Oliver Smith (programming).
TinderBox [Jack Meade, Oliver Smith]
TinderBox brings multiplayer indie gaming to the arcade! This custom-built 4-player cabinet was designed by local developers Jack Meade and Oliver Smith to showcase party-friendly indie games from small teams. TinderBox has been demonstrated at PAX Prime 2015, Portland Retro Gaming Expo, Rose City Comic Con and TechFest NW, to name just a few, and we’re excited to see what you think of it!
