I just recently found out about Ripple Dot Zero, quite possibly the first free to play indie game effort developed by the fine folks at Pixel Truss, comprised of Tommy Salomonsson and Simon Stålenhag. While giving this game a spin I realized that the developers had chosen to go down a very unique direction, choosing to emulate the 16-bit Sega Genesis era visuals and sound, ultimately creating a game that feels like an awesome mix of Sonic The Hedgehog and Strider. The game follows a penguin who awakens in a dystopian world and sets out on a quest to free his comrades across 20 amazingly well designed levels, using a mixture of upgrades that allow him to power up his gyro-blade attack or jetpack across levels.
