Ultra-Indie Daily Dose: LimEx Is The Coolest And Strangest Work In Progress You’ll See Today
Hello, you glorious gluttons for all things indie horror! Are you just starving for the newest of the new, the most unknownest of the unknown? If so, you’ve come to the right place. Welcome to the Ultra-Indie Daily Dose! In this series, we’re going to pick a new game every day from an indie horror creator you’ve probably never heard of. No million-dollar budgets or factory productions. This is the space for the little guy with not but a developer toolkit and a dream. So if you’re down to roll the dice on something different, then stick around and check it out!
I don’t know what to make of this one, only that it’s extremely cool. I think. Regular readers will know that I am a consumer of Weird Shit,™ and this one is some top-shelf stuff. Today’s Daily Dose is a demo for a game called LimEx. Created by itch.io user TM Necro, this is version 0.4, an extra early “Instability Build.”
LimEx about as rough around the edges as you can get. I spent around 10 minutes trying to figure out what the hell is going on. You spawn in a strange warehouse, where a person requests that you turn off a radio. After that, I can’t really explain what else happened, or what was supposed to happen.
I walked around this bizarre area. This dose is half to gain some recognition and maybe support for this dev (the definition of ‘ultra-indie’), and half to crowdsource some help understanding just what I was supposed to see here. But I know this guy has something interesting in mind. You spawn with a Just Cause 2 style rope gun, and the controls have keys for “attach/activate thrusters.” I couldn’t get either of those to work, but I was content with just playing around and looking at the cool sights.
As I said, this is about as early a build as you can get. LimEx, especially in this state, will not be for everyone. But it’s definitely something you should consider trying and keeping an eye on for future updates. You can try it out yourself by clicking here.
