I wrote recently on New York indie devs, Golden Ruby Games, and their new space-themed runner game, Worm Run. Since then. the Golden Ruby team has been pretty busy, developing a new game, Hermit Crab In Space as part of a Sony-sponsored game jam at IndieCade East. The game jam asked developers to create a mobile game, specifically for play on the Vita, and gave developers the theme of “evolution” to spark game creation.
Golden Ruby created an 8-bit game about a hermit crab, in a detailed universe where hermit crabs in space totally make sense. (That is, um, not exactly my understanding of how evolution works, but the game looks like a space shooter with a cute retro aesthetic.)
