Here and Now Indie: Fotonica

Cost: $4.99
Buy it (or try it) here

We’re on a bit of an arcade running kick as of late, what with the indie greatness that is Runner 2. But there’s another running game out there that deserves your attention--one played from the first-person perspective, with vector graphics akin to Rez. It’s called Fotonica, and it’s one of the best one-button running games around.

This futuristic runner plops you into a stark wireframe world, making you sprint across segmented train tracks and through polygonal forests at incredible speeds. All the while, your ears will be caressed by driving synth music. Watch the trailer, download the demo, buy it, whatever--just make sure you see it in motion, because it’s truly a sight to behold.

We want to make your Saturdays better, and the best way to do that is recommend a great, easy-to-acquire indie game. If you’re looking for something fun to play, Here and Now Indie marks the end of your search.
