Indie Spotlight #3: Adorable Rainbow Vomit


“Toronto hasn’t always been the indie game development Mecca that it’s grown into today. Just under a decade ago, studios in the city were scarce, and many budding developers had to leave Toronto to find solid work. Sick of competing for the meager handful of game dev job openings in town and unwilling to relocate away from home, a group of enthusiastic game makers set out to change things. After a few years of working on a slate of mobile phone projects, indie studio Capybara Games has settled into a steady groove crafting offbeat games about rainbow-puking critters, puzzle jousting combatants, and pixilated touchy-feely warriors.”

PAX East: Might & Magic Clash of Heroes HD Preview


“At a passing glance, Capybara Games’ recent handheld addition to the storied Might & Magic series, Clash of Heroes, was easily mistakable for yet another generic RPG. Then, like many others who were similarly duped yet still picked the game up out of curiosity, it absolutely floored me with its absurdly captivating and deep puzzle gameplay that was hiding just beneath the surface. There’s no mistaking it the second time around: Might and Magic: Clash of Heroes HD, the upcoming enhanced version coming to PSN and XBLA is something you don’t want to miss.”

Review: Critter Crunch


“Any game that features one furry, cute creature projectile vomiting rainbow colored, nutrient-filled puke into another critter’s mouth is pretty much awesome in our book. While managing to pull off such a bizarre twist on one of Mother Nature‚Äôs more gross-out moments in a tasteful, stylish way is definitely impressive, Critter Crunch has a lot more going for it than Furbies that barf psychedelic spew. It’s also a damn fine puzzle game to boot.”
