We had the amazing opportunity to review a boat-load of awesome indie games for the forth-coming Taipei Game Show 2016 and here are some of the standouts!
The Coma: Cutting Class
Part Visual Novel, Part Survival-Horror and Part Adventure game, The Coma: Cutting Class is a modern day survival-horror gem coming out of Korean Developer, Devspresso Games. The game takes place in the prestigious Sehwa Highschool, where a student by the name of Youngho falls asleep during final exam and wakes up to find a dark and twisted version of his school where all sorts of horrors roam about and there is a murderous version of his hot teacher on the loose.
You can find The Coma: Cutting Class on its Steam Page here
Just Beats and Shapes
Just beats and Shapes is a fun and charming little bullet hell-type shooter set to awesome music. Dodge the various shapes and laser blasts to the beat of infectious electro and tracks! This refreshing take on the genre even features boss battles and other interesting mechanics to keep you on your toes.
The game is still not out yet but here is where you can find out more:
Somewhere between Towerfall Ascension and Nidhogg lies Arena Gods. In this top down deathmatch-type fighting game, you play as Gladiators (something were quite partial to) trapped in an arena as you battle up to 4 players to the death. With a ton of different weapons and randomly generated colosseums, Arena Gods offer hours and hours of fun and bloodshed for you and your mates.

Skyhill is a rogue-like, zombie survival horror game set in a post apocalyptic world.
World War III has come and gone. You managed to survive it at the penthouse atop the illustrious Skyhill Hotel. However, you can’t stay up there forever. As food and shelter become scarcer by the minute you must descend down the randomly generated floors of Skyhill and dodge or defeat the grotesque mutants roaming about to find supplies. Skyhill also features a crafting system where you can piece together different items to create weapons, better tasting food and safer accomodations.
Addictive, Innovative and surprisingly deep, Skyhill will have you coming back for more everytime.

Super Hot is what you get when you cross a First-person shooter and a puzzle game and throw it in the world of the Matrix.
The main gameplay mechanic is that time is frozen moves only when you move. You have all the time you need to aim but when you fire or take a step time move correspondingly forward. The levels are similar to Hotline Miami where its one hit kills both ways and you have to kill everyone in the level to progress.
It’s certainly an interesting mechanic that puts a new twist in the first-person shooter genre.
Check it out on Steam here:
