About

Indie Game Battle is a multiplayer fighting game for up to 8 players inspired by the Super Smash Bros series. However, IGB features indie characters instead, and the game is open for all suggestions!We've all seen other Smash Bros-like games before. So what makes Indie Game Battle stand out?Indie Game Battle plays much like our very own version of Smash Bros. However, some core differences are the team-based gameplay, the status effect system, and the PP meter.

IGB is intended to work especially well with team battle, which few other Smash Bros or Smash Bros-like games have put the same amount of focus upon. It works just as well with free for all and 1v1 matches, but some movesets and mechanics are designed to work in teams and create new strategies you may not see elsewhere. If you believe team battles aren't popular enough in other games, IGB could be the game for you!
The PP meter decides how much you can use certain moves on some characters, and the bar will refill over time. Maybe the move is especially powerful and therefore uses the PP bar to simulate a cooldown? Some characters depend on having PP left for using some of their moves. Using this wisely can win you the battle!
The status effect system makes Indie Game Battle more based around strategy. Sometimes, only hitting your opponent enough isn't the best strategy to beat them. Some characters can cause fire damage, poison opponents, drain them of the PP they need to use certain moves, slow down their movement speed, and more. Making your opponent disadvantaged and exploiting their weaknesses can turn a battle around!

We aim to interact with our community as much as possible. All suggestions will be considered, and we never ignore ideas! Anyone interested in the project can feel free to message us about their ideas whenever. if achievable, you might be lucky enough to have your ideas accepted.

Indie Game Battle is a game we want to continuously support and update for as long as possible in the future. We do not have set goal of content for the game for this reason, but we can guarantee that it will continue to grow for a long time as new characters, stages, modes, etc are added to the game.
Right now, the game consists mostly of smaller indie games and less known developers. But we hope to get bigger names into the game in the future if possible, too!Some features
  • IGB features lots of playable characters from various indie games. Each character has their own unique moveset and special moves. Later on, we aim to have a roster of 60 characters or above, too!
  • Over 10 stages to fight on. Each stage has a different design, different music, and different hazards.
  • Various gamemodes. Right now the game only has one, but later we expect to add several more to keep the game fresh!
  • Lots of settings! You can tweak settings to suit the way you prefer to play the game. Turn off healthbars or the damage percentage if you wish, toggle super attacks on/off, enable damage text, and more. You can even toggle things like stage hazards on/off, too!
  • Competitive mechanics such as wavedashing, l-canceling, and more to discover!
  • A story mode, featuring levels from the games involved! The story mode will come in a later part of development once we got the base game working best possible!
  • Lots of third party indie games! IGB includes the games we at Blob Games Studio are developing ourselves, but lots other indies can join in, too!
Are you an indie developer? If so, feel free to contact us if you'd like to see your own characters in IGB. Maybe you'll be lucky! If you aren't a developer, you can always suggest a game, too!

Indie Game Battle reviews and comments

Early Access Review Nothing Against the Game, but it's just not mature enough (my Opinion), the Menu control is dreck. Have tried out with 4 Friends themselves and all rated negatively (we were ingame quite small-how is that then with 8 Players???. I recommend the free Game "Brawlhalla," because this is more Fun. Indie Game ... Like "Super Smash Bros Brawl" for "wii," you can also get for your FREE PC and Mac. Simply type: "Super Smash Bros Brawl pc/Mac free download" then on Videos and after make. Tip: Admin Rights needed.

Early Access Review I Think I'm the only one to do an analysis in Spanish PD: For the date that publishes the analysis. GOOD:-It Has gameplay like Smash Bros. -The Music is independent (They themselves do) (I Think T. T)-Has a variety of levels. -At least you can jump in the corners of the walls. BAD:-Very basic movements. -Very inactive gameplay. -Few ideas, There one can recognize: Megaman, Ness, Lucas, Kirby, Probably a link and several more...-Could be more original when creating that game. -Very simplistic the menu you title and the rest. I Just give it Good to support this game in development. I hope that in the future this game is incredible. :D [PD: As a sage said: It Was Good while It lasted:, C]

Early Access Review Actually, I wanted to give the Game a Chance despite the bad Reviews. First negative Surprise: In the Menu you need a Mouse, the Controller moves at most the Mouse Pointer (!!!). Ok, real Mouse taken, clicked through a ridiculous Tutorial (in the Style of: "Under" Practice "you can practice," "about" Finish "you finish the Game") and then try to play a Fight. After a long tedious try (where was the Tutorial there?) finally got into a Fight. Unfortunately, though, my Character just stands there and doesn't react the Bean to any Input from my Gamepad. Verdict: Doesn't Work properly. Rather throw the GamePad three times into the Air and catch it again. There you have a lot more Fun with it ...

Early Access Review-get free (Lots O Network/Facebook)-Currently (stand 10.01.16) there is only the Battle and Training Mode. This means that there must be at least 2 Players in Battle mode. The Training Mode is good for starters, where you just fight against a Bot (which just stops) for as long as you like. So at the Moment the Game is only suitable for the Multiplayer Player. Who can play together on the PC, like the other with the Controller etc. Adventure mode is not yet unlocked and hopefully brings more Content. + Graphic + achievements + many Maps and Characters + Character Selection is well developed-no online Multiplayer-Map Selection menu seems somewhat cheap At the time you get for €10 still quite little content, so the Review is currently negative. I hope for a lot of Updates
