SNES-style battle music album Boss Battles for the Soul is out now

Last year, electronic music creator Mark Reichwein ran a little Kickstarter campaign for his pet project: to produce an album of boss battle music in the style of various 16-bit era games. The catch is that these track would ...

TerraTech lets you build heavy machinery to ravage and plunder some alien world

Tormentum sure looks like a messed up adventure game

It seems that both horror and adventure games are in rude health in 2014, so it's no surprise to see a game combine the two. The trailer above is for Tormentum, a new indie point-and-click game from developer OhNoo that has ...

Icarus Proudbottom takes control of a spaceship in Starship Captain

Last we saw Icarus Proudbottom, he was teaching us typing, and before that he was demonstrating his chocolate fountain. Suffice it to say, the Icarus Proudbottom franchise is all over the place, in the best way possible. Now...

Bullet hell Zenzizenzic takes to Kickstarter for the final stretch

Zenzizenzic may have a ridiculous name, but it has a genuinely interesting story behind its development. Ruud Koorevaar would not have been called a game developer when he began work on the twin-stick bullet hell shooter; he...

Red Goddess: Inner World Kickstarter hits funding goal

Just a couple months ago, Yanim Studio launched a Kickstarter campaign for its pretty platformer Red Goddess, but it failed to meet its goal of $50,000 by about 20%. Earlier this month, the studio relaunched with updated ass...

Amplitude Kickstarter adds Anamanaguchi, Freezepop, Danny Baranowsky, and more

Harmonix's Amplitude Kickstarter campaign is four days away from ending, and it is only about halfway to its $775,000 goal. Some of the trepidation that potential backers have expressed has been regarding the soundtrack. Rath...
