Team Indie from Brightside Games has characters from Bit. Trip Runner, Braid, Knytt and more team up to save a cat inside a computer – New trailer released

First, I love Brightside Games, the developers of Team Indie, for letting me write the headline to the article. Which, by the way, is entirely accurate. More specifically, Team Indie is a game where:

Commander Video from Runner 2 by Gaijin Games / Choice Provisions
Clunk from Awesomenauts by Ronimo Games
Super Crate Box guy from Super Crate Box by Vlambeer
“Black Fluff Ball” from Badland by Frogmind
Tiny from Tiny & Big: Grandpa’s Leftovers by Black Pants Studio
Mi from Knytt Underground by Nifflas’ Games
J. Jitters from The Great Jitters: Pudding Panic by Kunststoff
Dustgirl from Dustforce by Hitbox Team and
Tim from Braid by Number None

team up to save Marvin the cat (an original character) who is trapped in a computer after a more evil cat cuts its necklace off. Other than that, just a normal day, you know? In any case, Brightside Games has released a new trailer for Team Indie, which you can see above. It’s a pretty epic affair. So what is Team Indie you ask? Well, primarily it is a puzzle platformer where, from what I have played, you use successive runs of different characters to collect all of the gems in a level and get to the end. So, Commander Video sliding on one run might cause a door to open for Marvin on a second run, as an early example. It all looks rather nice and the cast of characters is impressive (and used with permission). Team Indie is set for release on October 9, 2014 and will be available for both PC and Mac through Steam. It all looks like a very promising puzzle platforming mashup and I’d really like to see how deep they can take the character swapping mechanic, which has some serious potential.
