Independent game developers from around the world have been kidnapped and it's up to you to save them. Explore a strange alien base loosely guided by your commander, a hairless guinea pig named Bean. Unlock power-ups and rescue the indies as you find out who's behind it all.
Originally an homage to the 8-bit cult classic "The Guardian Legend," The Indie Game Legend 3D has taken on influences from other famous titles to create a unique but nostalgic experience.
"The project is actually based on a friend's freeware game that he put on TIGSource as a joke," said Jeff Lindsay, programmer and producer of the game. "That people will make a full game for free in their spare time just for fun, maybe to include some jokes about their friends, is what I love about the indie game scene. I wanted to celebrate that."
Progrium Games is developing The Indie Game Legend 3D in the open on Twitch, and invites anybody to watch and participate. More information can be found at http://tigl3d.com.
