Indie Excavation No. 2: Post-Sale Madness
On display — Godstrike, Ultra Space Battle Brawl, My Night Job
Christmas is now behind us, and that means a lot of people out there are staring down the barrel of a really questionable Steam backlog. I hope that among the discounted AAA titles that all of you found it in your hearts to spare a few nickels for a deserving indie, but if you didn’t, then here are three more to consider for the next sale.
Today’s features are a bit of an odd blend. Opening the showcase is a recent release that I think has a real chance of breaking out in the future. Following that, we have two titles that have been sadly buried — one a console-styled multiplayer gem, the other an odd arcade throwback.
As always, if you want to clue me in on an overlooked indie title, you can leave a comment here or send me a message on my site.
Watch the games in action:

Meet Talaal, last of the Heralds. For the moment, it’s not too important to know what that means. Just know that the other Heralds have been acting up, one of them in particular has gotten too big for his britches, and now it falls to Talaal to clean up the mess. And how will she accomplish this? Through firepower, that’s how.
Godstrike is a twin-stick bullet hell shooter. By writing that I’ve probably already either won you over or turned you away, but I hope you’ll stick around because this title brings a few twists to the formula. The game is a boss rush featuring ten multi-stage fights, available in either a straight down the line story mode or a semi-randomized challenge mode. As you defeat the bosses, Talaal gains access to a range of both passive and active powers, the latter of which can really help you clear a fight in a hurry.
