Thanks Mate. I already pre-ordered it while it was discounted on steam so I'm set and waiting for the official release. :) Same price though so no love lost. hehehe.

Superhot has been in heavy development since the kickstarter and they're busting their asses to make sure the control and gameplay is tight as hell, but there is a lot more to the game past the initial alpha and footage. I am psyched to see where it ends up in the release.

Catlateral damage is.. just silliness. Like katamari but with less of a point, if that is possible. :) since you could support it and get a digital copy for fairly cheap early, i snagged in on it, the fact it seems to be developed by a lot of true cat owners/lovers means it's going to have that special something.

Road Redemption is in it's alpha/beta on steam and I got to try it and watch my friend test it on his system for a while. VERY fun, even at this level. it is tricky and I died more than I'll want to admit but when you managed to pull off something amazing it feels so satisfying (like getting kicked off the road, using your boost to jet pack up and back over the road and gunning down the gun from the air as you fall... oh yeah.

and sticky bombs.. hell yes to blocks of c4 and their familiar beeping death!

A Hat in Time is one I am getting the physical copy of because they're trying so hard to emulate an old school collect-a-thon platformer from the N64 days they're packaging it in a pseudo N64 type box. :) I am really hoping the final game is fun. and it does couch co op. YAY.

I have signed up a couple months ago for Indiebox. The first one I got was Luftrauser, which had some fun little goodies and the game. I hadn't set the game up yet, but I guess it is the ps+ freebie on psn for ps3 so my friend grabbed it and I got to see it in action. pretty nifty arcade like shmup with some fun music. is hard, for sure, but I imagine with practice on the stick it could get really fun and exciting. I don't even mind the minimalistic approach. though on ps3 it had some issues (audio bugs).

@EvilKing... definitely lots of food for thought. I did look at Luftrausers as a prospect a while back because I've read really interesting things about Vlambeer, the studio, and their Radical Fishing was entertaining. Overall though, I've tended to steer away from pixelated and naïve-art indie titles unless the concept blows my mind (Enviro-Bear 2000) or the gameplay is terrific (which Luftrausers might be) :D

The daft humor of Catlateral Damage appeals to me (which is also why I bought Goat Simulator). As a cat lover (there were two terrific cats at my last home)... there are quite a few fun things to do with a typical cat's activities like knocking things down, eating things, chasing things, barfing, acrobatic leaping, tripping people, etc. (though I'm not sure how one would make a game mechanic from their absolute favourite activity... sleeping). It looks like it will be a combination of hand-made levels, with procedurally-generated levels which I think offers the best of both worlds. A solidly playable campaign, and the longevity of infinite number of new levels.

I'm not as up on new games as I used to be, mostly because I have quite a backlog to work through. These are the few that I am aware of and looking forward to.

Ghost of a Tale (is it 2015 yet?)
Shroud of the Avatar - Kickstarter game based on the old Ultima games and Ultima Online.
New Mass Effect - I loved the series and I'm excited over the new art that was just released.
Batman Arkham Knight - The gameplay for the series has been very enjoyable.

I just caught word of this and it looks really kool. Coming to Xbox One and PC and I figure the style and approach might appeal to you GOAT fans.
