Indie Wonderland: The Final Station

As a Dutch person, particularly one without a driver’s license, I can’t help but like trains. They get me where I need to go. As someone who started video gaming in the late 90s, I like pixel art. A blast from the past turned established cool art form of the future, what’s not to like? As a lover of the unknown, I like games that focus on mystery and uncertainty. And as a nerd in general, I think I’m supposed to be into zombies and the concept of a zombie apocalypse. I don’t make the rules here, I just follow them, shambling-like and groaning about brains.

So what happens if you put those four together? Trains, pixel art, uncertainty, and zombies? Would you maybe get something like Do My Best Games‘s The Final Station, a pixel-art game about driving a train through a mysterious zombie-infested landscape?

And, follow-up question: how long do you think it would take from me hearing about that game, to me playing it forever and always?

Might I even be playing it… right now???

(Spoiler levels: Narrative, low. Mechanical, low-medium.)

(Game source: Patreon funds. I love you guys.)

After the break: The Final Station. If this game starts with a broken train and you never actually get to ride it — because it’s at its final station, you see — I am going to be some form of pissed.
