The next indie game on my list is Rock of Ages, by ACE Team. They’re the Chilean studio who made the bizarre first-person brawler Zeno Clash, which I can wholeheartedly recommend. Rock of Ages is a bit different though. It’s a game about rolling giant boulders down tracks in order to smash the gates of your opponent’s castle. Between rolling, you and your opponent hastily construct defenses, manned by little 2-D cut-out soldiers clearly inspired by Terry Gilliam’s Monty Python animations. Oh, and you do all this while traveling through five distinct periods of art history.

Video games are amazing.
