Here in Japan there is a series of PS2 games called the Simple Series which would basically be described as low budget games.
This week I guess is the first time one of those games made it to the #1 sales position. The game is called “超最速!族車キングBU” which translated I think means “Super High Speed Family Car King, Vrooom!!!” which features this screen
There are some treasures in the series. For example “The Earth Defense Force” is a pretty awesome game about fighting off giant ants, monsters and aliens. There’s also lots of funky ones like “The大美人” (The Giant Beautiful Woman) or “ラブ★エアロビ♪ (Love Aerobics)
Lots of people complain about the fact that there is no place for indy games for consoles. I don’t know how these games are created but it sure seems like they are indy games. Maybe they should try this in other markets as well.
