Indie Games: Millennium Sequels (#2-5)

This review is for all the sequels following Millennium: A New Hope by Indinera Falls. The reason why I thought I should place them all in one space is that I played Millennium 2 to 4 for two days straight. In fact, I finished 2 to 4 in one day. Millennium 5 took me quite a few days of grinding, though.

The sequels are:
Millennium 2: Take Me Higher
Millennium 3: Cry Wolf
Millennium 4: Beyond Sunset
Millennium 5: Battle of the Millennium

Indie Game: To The Moon

In a nutshell? Video games as ART. 
And I'm not talking about graphics art.

I confess: this review should have been written 8 months ago. But it had inspired me so much to work on my own game that I had completely forgotten to blog about it. To The Moon's creator, Kan "Reives" Gao, has just released a short game A Bird Story, and I was immediately reminded to write about this beautiful indie title. (Because apparently, the protagonist for A Bird Story is going to be in the sequel of To The Moon.)

Mobile Game: Run Run Super V

This is one of the three Pinoy games I had been looking forward to in the next two years (also because the second book I'm writing is related to it, har har). When Altitude Games first announced the formation of their company, I was ecstatic. If you had grown up watching sentai shows, you'd see why:

The project's name is Run Run Super V. As a game developer myself, this looks like a dream project. I hate free-to-play (F2P) games with a passion I can't even begin to describe, but this is one of those rare F2P gems I would not mind creating or playing. One look at the title screen and you can definitely see that the devs had a lot of fun making this game.

Indie Film: Sundalong Kanin (Rice Soldiers)

Movie as described by its studio: Sundalong Kanin is a film about four young children during the World War II who wanted to be soldiers in order to fight the Japanese Army. What started out as play, starting off as “sundalong kanin,” (a sort of toy soldier, "saling pusa”) they quickly learned the difference between a real gun and the toy they use to play with.

Every Cinemalaya season, I'm always one of those who'd just pick randomly and think, "Surprise me." Truth be told, when I was picking a movie last Monday, I was looking at the title with less people in the theaters. Probably because part of me likes rooting for the underdog, while another part of me just hates crowded theaters. So when I picked Sundalong Kanin, I wasn't quite sure what I was in for.

Indie Game: Millennium: A New Hope

Where do I even begin raving about this title by Indinera Falls and published by Aldorlea Games? Millennium: A New Hope is yet another RPGMaker game that first appeared in casual game portals like Big Fish Games and then later Greenlighted by Steam. As of this writing, I am patiently awaiting a Steam sale (Halloween?) and the release of the last 3 Millennium titles because right now, only the first two are available on Steam. (It costs $5.99 in Steam, but $9.99 in Desura. Strange.)

Anyway, I was just browsing through Steam and stumbled upon this last week. The story is about a young peasant girl who aims to change her country's leadership. Basically, she goes around looking for strong warriors to champion her cause.
