Gravity Bone‘s Brendon Chung has released his first commercial title, Flotilla, on PC and XBLIG. Let’s check it out together, as a family.
RADAR: Flotilla Review
Blendo Games, Turn-based strategy, Windows/XBLIG, $10
Remember Gravity Bone? Yeah you do, because it was awesome. A stylish, fun, way outside-the-box mod of Quake II, it totally stole our hearts when we covered it last year. Now Brendon Chung, the man behind its development, is back with Flotilla, a turn-based strategy game for Windows and Xbox Live Indie Games. Was he able to transfer all the charm and style to a different genre?

Feedback: Free Indies that deserve console releases
Cave Story made the jump to consoles last week and it got us thinking: there are probably a ton of other free indies that deserve the same treatment. We asked for your input. You gave it. SYNERGY.
