"I was given the opportunity to play a multitude of amazing games this past week at E3 2018. Most of which were big third-party titles like Resident Evil and Spiderman. But as spectacular as those games are, there were quite a few indie titles that stuck out amongst the rest, one of which is a game called Little Bug. I happened to come across the game at an event known as The Mix and at first glance, it didnt seem all that special. I watched one of my colleagues play as the developer was explaining the mechanics of the game to us. Once I started to understand how the game worked and was able to play it my self, and I instantly I fell in love." -- PC Gaming Enthusiast
