INDIE INSIGHTS

We’ve collectively reached February already/finally (delete as applicable). I’m proud of us; we did it despite everything happening in the world. We made it through another fortnight together. We live in a time when we must lean hard into what sustains us and brings us joy.

For me, I keep going through spite, video games, and the prospect of new Nicolas Cage movies. I am fueled by tending digital gardens and Cage rage—a healthy way to be.

I’m a big fan of hidden object games. I had a library of Where’s Wally? books (Waldo to my North American friends) and went through them over and over. There’s something incredibly satisfying about just finding things in amongst the chaos, and that is exactly what Hidden Through Time 2 is all about.

HIDDEN THROUGH TIME 2: MYTHS & MAGIC

WOLFENSTEIN RPG The core gameplay is the same, but Wolfenstein’s story, style, and lore help to put the game over the top.

After playing a hidden object game, I always want to play more hidden object games. Luckily for me, the demo for Lost and Found Co. from Indonesian developers Bit Egg Inc. popped up on my radar.

LOST AND FOUND CO. – DEMO

The stages are multi-level, and you can switch between them easily. They are densely populated with fun characters all up to some kind of shenanigans, and it’s up to you to peer through the madness to find things for your clients. Most of the objects and characters in the scenes are interactable and will at least have some kind of animation when clicked.

Phew Phew Games are taking us back to the future in this retro-styled, gravity-bending action-adventure game. You play as Agent 70 who is part of an agency that patrols the streets fixing strange phenomena and putting weirdos behind bars. Agent 70 has been promoted, and today is his last day before he moves on.
