As a citizen of fairly small state, I am proud with every videogame made in my homeland. I compiled a list of the best ones, found in various resources like gamedev.lv (if your not a citizen of Latvia don't even bother going to the website) , spoki.lv and others. Hopefully you'll find it mildly interesting ;)
1. Moustache Mountain
Probably the most successful one from Latvia. Passed the barrier of Steam Greenlight and made it to Steam! Gg, fella!
2. There was a Caveman
A very fine looking platformer with loverly graphics and dinasaurs. Classic, but finely crafted indie.
3. Funky Karts
An odd 2d/3d karting/platformer publicly acclaimed mix. Very nice to see latvian guys on summit in San Francisco.
A huge ambitious project (especially in a country were gamedev is as popular as absinthe), but seriously lacking graphics. Game is only at it's alpha, so that has all the chances to change.
5. Burning Wings
A 3d sidescrolling shoot-em up is a rare guest in 2016, but that doesn't mean it is less welcome.
http://war-sim.ga isn't as advanced graphically (it technicaly isn't a game at all) but it's a project I developed, so here it is on the list :D The strongest point here is an idea and player's imagination, so check war-sim out of you want to clash two states together.
7. Lust (weird name, ikr)
Why is it called Lust I have no fucking clue, and , like most 3D unity based indies it is suffering from heavy lack of good graphics. Still, the developer has time to make it work until release.
One of the most finely crafted trailers for an indie game I've seen. A multi-level puzzle game with lots of customization, what's not to enjoy?
9. Tower Clash
Trailer might look a little disappointing compared to the previous one - but the game itself is rather sweet. It has tactics with card-based gameplay, graphics and a new idea. Fine work, Latvians! (Game is currently being converted from Greenlight to real Steam store!)
Thats all folks!
Sadly, there really isn't much else to see in Latvian gamedev market that would look remotely applicable for a worldwide market, Most of the projects are labeled "first project" and are essencially really bad platformers/topdown shooters w/o ideas,
My only advice to developers on the list - if you're making a video on your game, don't call it "game test 01", instead of that make a gripping trailer with music and something flashy. That'll get you some well deserved attention. Valete!
If I accidentally left your made-in-latvia game without a spotlight, let me know in the comments and I'll gladly fix it ^_^
