Ackk Studios, creators of the Game Boy-influenced, color-themed RPG Two Brothers has revealed a few screens of their next game, currently codenamed Project Y2K. Details on the game remain scant, but a little Twitter digging revealed a few incidental details, such as influences like David O'Reilly (Her, Adventure Time, Eat My Sharts), Takashi Marukami (Jellyfish Eyes, Superflat First Love), Killer7, EarthBound, and the "Hipster" stereotype. Seems like a dream come true, though I hope the game doesn't give hipsters too hard of a time. Out of all the fashion-obsessed groups in modern culture today, they seem to get the most flack, while sexy male models and the real housewives continue to get away relatively unscathed.

Right now the game is running on the PS4, though its likely coming to Wii U and PC as well. We've got Ackk Studios scheduled to appear on Sup Holmes on January 26th. Hopefully we can squeeze some information from them about this promising new game on that date.

Combo Queen brings jiggle physics to an SNES aesthetic

It's not that animated breasts are all Combo Queen has going for it. They're just the first thing I noticed clicking around the trailer and ending up on a bouncy idle animation.  The pixel art here is rather lovely...more

More games need cupcakes as playable characters

I'm a jerk who totally forgot about The Behemoth's Game 4 despite playing a fun chunk of the tactical role-playing title alongside its narrator, Will Stamper, and loving every minute of it. So to selfishly put it back on my ...more
