From Randomized Ruminant References to Iconic Videogame Crossovers

 - Mar 24, 2018
With the rise of the gaming industry, developers have more leeway than ever to create edgy and interesting titles, as the March 2018 games trends show. In the always-wise words of The Game, the popular rapper from the early 2000s, consumers might hate it or love it, but the dev is on top, and those creators will keep making fascinating games until consumer interest in the industry stops.

Naturally, smash-hit game franchises have still been leveraging their universal popularity. For example, 'Pac-Man Sonic Dash' combines the two SEGA heroes into a single mobile game, which is far from an indie title. That said, perhaps the most exciting area of the industry is out on the fringes, where games like 'David Lynch Teaches Typing' and 'Level 99 Axe Rage' are redefining video game concepts.
