Super Rare Mixtape Vol. 3 bundles 30 indie games on one tape – GameSpew

0

Super Rare Games has released Super Rare Mixtape Vol 3., a Hulk-green cassette that contains 30 indie games and 6 demos.

No, you haven’t traveled back in time to a time when you put a game in a tape deck and stood way back while it yelled at you. Super Rare’s super rare mixtape, although packaged like a cassette tape, is actually a cassette-shaped USB flash drive. But it’s undeniably cool and now Super Rare has released its third tape in the series.

There are thirty indie games on the tape and while you could technically download them from Itch.io or another indie site, half the fun is just checking out the titles Super Rare has picked out. Unlike the old Shareware discs of yore, this is not shovelware – the titles on offer have been carefully selected.

So what does this latest band offer? And why is it the color of peas? We can’t answer that last question, but we can confirm that the following full games are included:

After Midnight, Birdsong, Bonkers, Commuting, Dank Tomb, Die in the Dungeon CLASSIC, Dink Smallwood HD, Estigma, Interior Decorator, FurnCap, Gone Wandering, Hot Pot Panic, Inferna, It’s Paper Guy!, Jayce, liminal ranger, Only Cassette Coloring!, Palmystery, PEN GUNS, Pocketon Peak, RETICLE_STAR, Saucy Boy Adventures, Seaway, SHOTDOGS, Slide in the Woods, SpaceScape, Spectrum Valley, Tap Tricks, The Telwynium, and Ugby Mumba 3.

Dink Smallwood HD especially worth checking out – it’s a weird little RPG that mixes humor with Diablo-esque monster-slaying shenanigans. Released since 1998, the original is said to have inspired several developers, including BioWare, who gave the game a nod in their Baldur’s Gate: Tales from the Sword Coast expansion.

There’s also developer audio commentary, concept galleries, and more. In the interest of full disclosure, we purchased the previous two tapes and had fun digging through their respective contents. Vol 1. also let us demonstrate the excellent grappling dogputting him firmly on our radar.

You can pick up Super Rare Mixtape Vol 3 right now; 2000 copies were initially available, but they are now over halfway. Don’t try to rewind it with a pencil, it won’t end well.

Share.
