So, I've known about this game for a while, and man do I like it! I've talked with one of the Indie Pogo developers quite a bit, and he seems like a really nice guy as well.

What is Indie Pogo, you may ask? Well, it's a 2D indie-crossover fighting game with an auto-jump mechanic. Yes, this means you're constantly jumping, which reminds me a lot of certain mobile games. From what I hear, Indie Pogo actually started out as a mobile game, before becoming a game for PC/consoles.

There are both characters you may recognize, and some you may not know of, which is common for commercial indie crossover games.

Here's some videos:



And here's a link to their Steam page:

Lastly here's the developers' Twitter:

Of course, this game isn't for everyone. I know some people dislike the auto-jump mechanic, or that Zorbie character (some people find him disturbing, others find him hilarious, I personally find him weird, but cool). Still, it would be nice to hear everyone's thoughts on this!

Understandable. I personally fail to see that, but maybe if you're used to games like Melee it's more visible. It could just be due to the auto-jump mechanic, as it seems difficult to make that type of gameplay fast-paced. Still, maybe they will adjust it, or maybe it just takes some getting used to. As much as it may not look it, I do feel the game has competitive potential, as there are actually quite a few moves that are available per character.

I guess I've just been really hopeful for this game, as there aren't many options for a good indie crossover fighter. I've already shared some my thoughts on Indie Game Battle, and there's also Indie Assault (which was released in a very unfinished state, then removed, and now they are making improvements, but still) There's also Bounty Battle, and while it looks good to me, I prefer this game.

I love how all the 200$ cameo slots are now gone already, there go any chance of me wanting to donate to this rip.

Surprised to see you here! I would still donate a little bit if I were you (assuming you were actually going to donate $200), but it's your money. I will say, beta testing in particular I feel is priced way too high. Actually surprised so many people donated the $200 (not a bad thing though, as they really need the money).

Worth mentioning they also recently got permission for Octodad, Bleed, Awesomenauts, and likely others.

I really want this game to succeed, so I highly suggest checking it out, and maybe donating to the Kickstarter if possible. I get it's not for everyone, but I hear you get used to the auto-jump pretty quickly while playing.

Also, if this game fails for whatever reason (not their Kickstarter, but in general), I probably won't trust the concept of an indie crossover fighter again (though, there's also Bounty Battle, I suppose).
