Indie Wonderland: Freaky Awesome

Much as the Steam store front page is slowly devolving into a Newgrounds-esque burning trash heap, it’s still occasionally possible to find cool games just by browsing. For instance, two weeks ago I found Mandragora Games‘s Freaky Awesome, a game that impressed itself on me (via trailers and screenshots) as ‘what if The Binding Of Isaac, but about weird ooze mutations instead of dead babies and poop’. Which… I dunno, that seems like a kind of game I could see myself enjoying, if I gave it a shot.

And here we are!

(Spoiler levels: Narrative, none. Mechanical, medium-high.)

(Game source: Bought it myself.)

After the break: Freaky Awesome, or ‘what if the develops of classic Duke Nukem applied their talents to refining other game formulas’?
