    Boston Festival of Indie Games
  2. Boston Festival of Indie Games

    ***Update*** They are asking for a list of volunteers so they can supply us badges. You'll have plenty of time to wander and play games though. The show runs from 8am to 9pm, but as you can see below, Extra Life won't be there all day long. Also keep in mind we can have as many people as we want on shifts, since we're buying our own badges, but ideally we'd like at least 2 volunteers per shift. Tickets availabe for pre-purchase here. 9-2 9-2 1-6 1-6
  3. Introductory Board Games

    Sometimes the people you talk to think that the only board games that exist are Monopoly, Sorry, and Trouble. Because of this, it can be hard to get people interested in board games. I've been lucky enough to work with people who have relatively large game collections, so we've found games that work for our group. We've also tried getting other coworkers interested in gaming with us. A good way to do that is to start off with some quicker, lighter games. Since we typically play at work, the only real time we have is our lunch break. We're blessed with a full hour, but we still try to find games that can be played in 30-45 minutes. That gives us time to get food, eat, set up the game, play it, and then tear it down. Sometimes, the games are short enough that we can play multiple rounds. Here are some (quick) games that I'd recommend to get others interested in games even when you don't have much time: Celestia A fairly simple push-your-luck game. The premise is that you're going through a series of adventures and the more fulfilling (read: longer) your adventure, the more points you can get. Everyone gets to take a shot at being captain and passenger, and it's a good time all around. Codnames / Codenames: Pictures Another simple game where you can work in teams. Each team has a Code Master that is trying to get them to guess the correct cards and reveal all of their agents. The Code Master is only allowed to give a one-word clue followed by a number, which is the number of cards that the clue can point to. The first team to correctly guess the location of all of their agents without accidentally picking the Assassin wins. Saboteur / Saboteur 2 This game is one of my favorites. Everyone is a mining dwarf trying to get to some hidden gold. There are also some Saboteurs in your midst that are trying to prevent you from reaching that very gold. Everyone plays a card, then draws a card, ideally building a path to the other side of the board. I highly recommend picking up Saboteur 2, which is actually an expansion, because it adds teams and several new roles. Good Cop, Bad Cop Everyone in this game is either an Honest cop or a Crooked cop. Two players are the Agent and Kingpin respectively. This is a deduction game where players are trying to find and kill either the Agent or Kingpin, depending on your allegiance. The game gets fun when either one is found and suddenly cards come out to alter the allegiance of the other players. I recommend picking up the Undercover expansion as well. BANG! One person is the Sheriff, several players are Deputies, one person is a Renegade, and several people are Outlaws. Another deduction game that we love to play. This game involves shooting first and asking questions later while you try and figure out who is on your team. The Sheriff and Deputies are trying to get rid of the Outlaws, the Outlaws are trying to get rid of the Sheriff, and the Renegade is trying to get rid of everyone except the Sheriff until the very end. Tsuro / Tsuro of the Seas This is a very casual board game. Everyone has their own piece and all you do is play a card and follow the path. The goal is to stay on the board as long as possible. If you run off the edge of the board or crash into another player, you're out. Love Letter / Love Letter Premium This is a personal favorite. The idea is that you're trying to get your letter to the princess by having it passed along through the many people she interacts with. Each card has a special ability such as making you immune to other effects for the round or comparing your hand to another player's hand. If two (or more) players are left when the deck runs out, the player with the highest value card in their hand wins. I recommend the Premium edition because it adds support for four more players and adds a lot of exciting new cards. Mascarade This is another deduction game, but it's not quite the same as games like The Resistance or Werewolf. Everyone has a card that has an ability on it. Throughout the game, you will be swapping cards with other players and trying to keep track of who has what ability. Some abilities give you gold, while others let you add some chaos by moving other cards around. The first person to 13 gold wins. Spyfall / Spyfall 2 Spyfall is a good game if you're looking for something you can play in 5-10 minutes. A bag of cards is picked, and all but one of the cards in that bag has a location (each card has the same location) as well as a role on it. For example, you might have a set of cards that say Bank and one of the roles could be Banker or Thief. You go around asking each other questions, but you don't want to give too much information away. Ideally, you get answers that let you know who else knows where everyone is located. If the Spy, who does not have the location on their card, figures out the location, they win.

  5. Hi Everyone, I received my first Extra Life Donation! (really Happy) during my stream Yesterday but I realized when I checked my emails. I was using an overlay from strexm.tv. I love their overlays but they don't have Extra Life alerts. I was using streampro.io in the past, it has Extralife alerts and tracking goal but last time wasn't working well for me so I switched to Strexm. My question is: is there any other overlays system with Extra Life Alerts to use or to request to add these alerts?. I don't want to lose the opportunity to thank when someone is donating while I'm streaming, I didn't find out much alternatives. Thank you in advance.

  12. You can scour the land for a century or more, but you’ll never find a better place to get your hands on amazing indie games than at PAX. Between the appropriately titled Indie Megabooth and the PAX 10, there are enough titles to choke a large chocobo. These are the most awesome indie games from PAX West 2016. Echo Platforms: PS4, PC Release Date: Q1 2017 Stare long enough into a void of mystery, and it might start looking back at you. Echo tells the story of En, a woman attempting to revive someone through the mysterious powers of a seemingly sentient palace. All goes well enough until the palace, activating its own defenses, begins to create violent and aggressive clones of En. The kicker? The palace only learns as much as you’re willing to teach it. En’s unwanted copies are ultimately a benign obstacle until she’s forced to adapt, opening doors, launching over barriers, and utilizing weapons. The clones slowly but surely adapt to every new maneuver you employ, dramatically increasing the likelihood of detection and death. Employing a sort of rapid “day and night” cycle to indicate when the clones will begin to employ your own tactics, Echo quickly becomes an exercise in risk versus reward and stealth versus desperation. Knowing that your own mistake is about to make things even worse is powerful, and allows players to choose their own play style. The team at developer Ultra Ultra might be commanding their corner of the Indie Megabooth, but the game stands as a technical and visual marvel in its own right, right alongside anything more highly funded. Old Man’s Journey Platform: Android, iOS Release Date: 2017 Fun fact: Roughly a quarter of all gamers are over the age of 50. So yes, you should keep trying to get your old man to play American Truck Simulator, even if it kills you. But if he’s not jonesed about a trip down spreadsheet lane, then perhaps the more serene Old Man’s Journey will be his cup of tea. Old Man’s Journey, developed by studio Broken Rules, captures the lengthy, meditative travels of an old sailor, on a mission of unknown intent, stopping only occasionally to enjoy Austria-inspired scenery. Gentle rolling hills turn into cobblestone roads. An old woman badgers you from her second floor window. A sly cat leads you along the path, and all the while the aura of a small town whispers through the streets. It’s every bit as peaceful as it is artsy, evoking a painterly style that’s both warm and embracing. Thankfully, gameplay seems to maintain a similar level of approachability. On mobile, players bend and layer the environment to line up with the area they want to reach, gently rearranging the landscape. Each segment is capped off with an impeccably illustrated still frame, capturing a moment in time of the protagonist’s storied life: A chance meeting with a girl, a gentle kiss to his pregnant bride at the summer harbor. At an estimated 90 minutes of playtime, you have no excuse not to find time for this game. Dog Sled Saga Platform: PC, Android, iOS Release Date: September 22, 2016 (full game, early access currently available) The onslaught of overly charming 2D “retro” indie games is inescapable. Many retro-inspired games seem to take the framework of a more recognizable era of gaming, but forget to put their own modernized twist on the end product. I don’t know with what else I’d compare Dog Sled Saga, because while its visual style invokes an entirely retro aesthetic (developer Trichotomy Games even rigged their demo to play on an NES controller), its gameplay comes across as both oddly personal and challenging at all times. After making the drastic decision to start a new life in the frozen Alaskan wilderness, the player finds themselves managing a rotating crew of sled dogs, qualifying for tournaments and maintaining their wellbeing over a season. It reads more like the back of a Football Coach Simulator 2016 box than any personal narrative, but each victory and failure along the way is an intensely intimate and earned one. You’ll need to precisely throw rations to your dogs in order to maintain their energy, while also ensuring they don’t injure themselves in tangled sleigh lines or due to lack of rest. The journey becomes just as much yours as it is theirs, and within a tight ten minute window I was already drawing a connection to my loyal steeds. Dog lovers need not miss this. Thimbleweed Park Platform: PC, Mac, iOS, Android, Linux Release Date: January 2017 LucasFilm’s 1987 hit Maniac Mansion set the bar for all future point-and-click games, establishing more than just a simple control scheme, but also the very nature of a video game narrative. Gone were the ultra-linear paths and obfuscated motivations for saving a block-shaped princess, replaced with a full cast of characters and player choice. Almost 30 years later, Maniac Mansion co-creators Ron Gilbert, Gary Winnick, David Fox, and their team are returning to the roots of what makes a great point-and-click narrative with Thimbleweed Park. Sardonic wit, whacky yet engaging characters, and inventive puzzles that play out across the entire cast all come together to craft an engaging mystery. Ignore the obvious parallels to The X-Files. Gilbert and Fox say they didn’t even realize it until the first playtesters made a mention of it. It’s just a good old fashioned murder mystery with clashing FBI agents – until it isn’t and the amateur game programmer/factory heiress and depressed clown show up. Battle Chef Brigade Platforms: PC, Mac, Linux Release Date: 2016 If you have even the slightest interest in the indie scene, you've more than likely heard of Battle Chef Brigade, and for excellent reason. After a successful Kickstarter campaign and three years in development, the cooking action puzzler is shaping up like few other games of its kind. Merging side-scrolling platforming and combat with Bejeweled-esque culinary puzzles, Battlechef Brigade challenges players to whip up the best darn dish in a fantasy world inhabited by your unusual assortment of heroes and devilishly handsome orcs. Wrapping it all up is an art style evocative of famed Studio Ghibli director Hayao Miyazaki, or the more recent Mamoru Hosoda, but with enough of its own unique flair as to be entirely unique. With a wonderfully colorful cast and cooking competitions that would make Top Chef look like Julia Child, Battlechef Brigade is a dish best served on every gamer's plate. If there's one thing all PAX attendees can agree on, it's that the number of games at PAX is far too vast to play all of them. Make sure to check out the rest at both the Indie Megabooth and PAX 10 web pages and beyond, and to let us know what your favorite game from PAX West was. View full article

  14. Game Day with the Kids!

    until
    Nashville Gamers, we have exciting news! September 7th (and once a month after that) we will be having an on-site game day with the kids at the Children's Hospital. Our first date is September 7th! SIGN UP FOR GAME DAY HERE!!!!! Use the link above if you're able to come help! We have a group that will be coming to visit that day, who is potentially looking to sponsor our Guild and Extra-Life. They will have people on site, reviewing the event, and potentially sponsoring our guild! They could potentially help in two ways: First: There is a possibility they could give us a fairly sizeable financial contribution to our Extra-Life Fundraising. Second: If they like what they see, they may begin assisting with hosting our events! They have a great employee base that could potentially just us alongside with Extra-Life! We could definitely use the additional member base and participation! Let's make this September game day great, and do something great for the kids!

  16. Favorite Games

    Hi everyone, I'm curious what everyone's all time, favorite, top 10 games list would be. I always have trouble ranking mine so I am interested in seeing what everyone else' lists look like. This could be old games, new games, console, PC, boardgames, card games you name it. I'll try to list mine here to get the ball rolling but in no particular order. Bioshock 1 Portal 2 Half-life 2 Final Fantasy 6 Final Fantasy 7 Chrono Trigger Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time Diablo 2 Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Fallout 3 And that's my list, at least for now. Your turn!
  17. Hey everyone, I've been following Extra Life for a few years now and decided to try and form together a team in my area: Erie, PA. You can find that group here: http://www.extra-life.org/team/heartoferie Whether I get team members or not, I will be streaming for my first time ever and raffling off games on November 5th. I will be streaming every now and then up until that day, but Nov 5 is when I'll be playing the most and hopefully raising money for Saint Vincent. Feel free to check out my donation page which has all the information about what games I'll be raffling off and where you can find my stream! http://www.extra-life.org/participant/kevinjmay

  20. STL PixelPop Festival

    until
    PixelPop Festival is a two-day festival celebrating games and game development. http://pixelpopfestival.com/
  21. There has been an ongoing Redbox game sale that will continue until May 8. Depending on availability at each individual kiosk, there is the potential to snag copies of Until Dawn for $18.99, The Order: 1886 for $5.99, or even Bloodborne for $8.99. The way to get in on the sweet deals pointed out by is a bit out of the ordinary, so bear with me. Not all kiosks that rent games are a part of the sale. In order to find out which ones are selling games, head over to this Redbox page and look up which ones are closest to you. There doesn't seem to be a way to see the inventory of these Redboxes individually, so those interested in finding something specific on sale will have to go to each Redbox in person. Prices are subject to vary by location as well as selection, so be prepared to swing by a few to see what they are offering.

  22. There has been an ongoing Redbox game sale that will continue until May 8. Depending on availability at each individual kiosk, there is the potential to snag copies of Until Dawn for $18.99, The Order: 1886 for $5.99, or even Bloodborne for $8.99. The way to get in on the sweet deals pointed out by is a bit out of the ordinary, so bear with me. Not all kiosks that rent games are a part of the sale. In order to find out which ones are selling games, head over to this Redbox page and look up which ones are closest to you. There doesn't seem to be a way to see the inventory of these Redboxes individually, so those interested in finding something specific on sale will have to go to each Redbox in person. Prices are subject to vary by location as well as selection, so be prepared to swing by a few to see what they are offering.

  24. What is everyone playing?

    I'm still catching up on a massive, MASSIVE backlog of games that I have wanted to play, though I am so looking forward to the new HomeFront game. I loved the original game, as well as the unique multiplayer. I played the closed Beta of the game and it was awesome, making me more excited for the release of the full game. They've thrown out the linear approach from the last game to make it an open world game instead. What Games are people playing right now? What games are looking forward to play?
