I love taking a chance on indies. They don’t always work out, but more often than not there’s some gems in the mix. One such game was by developer 2Awesome Studio, called Dimension Drive. It wasn’t perfect, but I respected the amount of creativity and ambition on display. So when I heard they had a sequel in the works, I was excited. That excitement hasn’t abated, though there’s a few things different between the games. Whereas Dimension Drive was a SHMUP, Aeon Drive is a fast paced platformer, with you literally racing the clock.
