Collective indie with the best name in history, Texans games ranchers, have returned to mount this year its traditional Fantastic Arcade, the corner videojuerguista that sits within the Fantastic Fest, a festival of horror, fantasy and science fiction that takes place in Austin, Texas, almost always during the last week of September.

This year the thing seems somehow more purely indie: of time not is offers through the shop of Humble Bundle but are have gone to our glorious sanctuary of marcianadas itch.io, and in this occasion the bundle offers exclusively them five games of the Fantastic Arcade that concludes today same.
Perhaps to some them seems that pay 15 dollars by five indies unknown and low-fi is risk your money, but only makes lack take a look to them authors for start to excite is with this half dozen of pet projects. Alert:
It new of Moppin, the Japanese mysterious that is pulled out of the sleeve the supernal Downwell without have made a game in his life, in collaboration with other illustrious Nippon, the artist Nemk.

Perhaps the game more Texan of all, despite be work of the collective Dutch Sokpop (that, helmed by Tom van den Boogaart has made stuff well fine as Bernband or Digital Bird Playground), and that us invites to launch ties for catch to some fugitive that can redeem by the money of the reward.
