Tonight You Die – An Unnerving Brutalist Cityscape Explorer

Tonight You Die – An Unnerving Brutalist Cityscape Explorer

You’re dropped of in a bleak, desolate wasteland of a brutalist city. The only signs of human existence are the lamp posts that slightly illuminate your environment and the sounds of your own echoing footsteps. As you walk around the city, you slowly begin to realize that this is it. That’s what’s here. It’s just you. You’re alone. But are you really?

The only thing that you can know for certain is that tonight, you die.

With the game title as the only clue as to what lies at the end of your questionably solitary exploration, mixed with GRYPT’s equally as ominous soundtrack, it seems as if your own lingering feeling of paranoia is the only thing that ever truly accompanies you.

Overall, the 1st person horror experience is pleasantly spooky. Especially when sitting alone in my room in the dark with nothing but grim and dissonant tones echoing throughout the place over the speakers.

Tonight You Die is available for Mac, Linux, and PC as a free (or pay what you want) game through Duende Games.

You can also check out GRYPT‘s ill-fated soundtrack, as well as other hauntingly gritty remixes below:

Both are available through TonightYouDie.com

IndieCade Showcase at E3

Coming out to E3 2015?

IndieCade is back for its ninth year at the expo and will be exhibiting the finest of over 700 early submissions from the IndieCade Festival in October, including some from partners at PlayStation, LOOT Interactive, and Intel!

I’ll be running demos at the IndieCade Showcase (located in the South Hall, Booth 601) on Tuesday (6/16) morning and all day on Wednesday (6/17)! Come by, say hi to the devs, give me high fives, and let’s play some games!

IndieCade Showcase 2

Here’s the ultra-snazzy lineup of games that will be on the E3 show floor this year! (I’m especially looking forward to playing the interactive, Alice in Wonderland-based pop up book Curiouser and Curiouser!… oh, and ROCKETS, ROCKETS, ROCKETS again. And always. Always rockets.): http://indiecade.com/e3_2015/games

IndieCade Showcase 1

Catch all the happeninz as they happen on IndieCade’s Twitter and Facebook!

Geek & Sundry will also be streaming from our lounge, so if you want to potentially stare awkwardly at Felicia Day, now’s your chance to do it! But if you’re not able to be at the expo in person, you can catch them as they play games and interview developers on Twitch! – http://www.twitch.tv/geekandsundry

IndieCade will also be co-sponsoring Glitch City’s Demo Night at Glitch City LA on Wednesday, June 17th at 8PM, where top-knotch indie devs will be inspiring and entertaining guests throughout the night. Glitch City is one of my favorite tech-centric venues in the area where devs and artists of all sorts get together to mingle, so I’d highly recommend swinging by for the after party!
