Meet Chasm, an upcoming indie 2D dungeon-crawler inspired by the likes of Ys III: Wanderers From Ys and other old-school RPG-slash-platformers from the 16-bit days.
Chasm, when it grows up, will be a Diablo- and Zelda-inspired side-scrolling action-RPG/Metroidvania for the PC. Currently, it's a wee demo attached to a $150,000 Kickstarter project. 15 days and a bit over $50,000 to go for this one.
Take Arms is a 2D multiplayer side-scrolling combat game destined for the Xbox Live Indie Games Channel. And it looks pretty great.
