Long time DC forum readers who enjoy casual 2d style indie adventure games are in for a real treat this week.  First came news that one of the favorite games we've discussed, Samarost 2, can now be had along with the brand new game Machinariumfrom the same developer, for $10.

And now comes news that the author one of the other clear favorite example of this genre (Knytt and Within a Dark Forest), has released a brand new indie game called "Saira".  (It's $17 for the full version -- a bit steep for this type of game but you can get an additional license for a friend for $2 so that makes a nice purchase for teams of dc people).

Saira teleported herself to Mars, but when she reached the planet all other humans in the galaxy had mysteriously disappeared. Now, how does something like that happen?
Saira is a two dimensional puzzle platformer for Windows 2000 or later.

Sounds great.

I've noticed a trend. You always call it Within a Dark Forest, but it's really called Within a Deep Forest. Even the post you made three years ago you call it a Dark Forest.

That makes it hard to Google. (c:

Anyway, I thought I'd also mention that Nifflas is working on a port of Cave Story to the Wii. It should be great!
