This week’s Indie Freebies are Little Bug, an enchanting twin-stick puzzle platformer, and Chester Cornfield: Old Timey Detective, a delightfully silly point-and-click adventure.
As far as proof of concepts go, Bela Messex’s Little Bug is as polished as it gets. And what an enchanting game it promises to be. Rendered in gloriously gloomy low poly 3D, it’s a rather unique puzzle platformer in which you take control of a little girl and her companion firefly. The game begins at the site of a night-time car crash, which presumably you survived. In search of your momma, you head into a mysterious mountain forest. But as the Red Lady says in Game of Thrones, “The night is dark and full of terrors”.
