Luckslinger blends 2D shooting, westerns, and hip-hop

Luck is a concept rarely addressed directly in games. Sure, there are tons of games that use random number generators for everything from environment generation to damage calculation, and luck does factor into those. But the...

Project Scissors coming to PC pending Kickstarter

NightCry (Project Scissors, if you're nasty), has taken to Kickstarter with new ambitions. The point-and-click horror title was originally planned for just Vita and mobile devices, but Nude Maker has now set its sights o...

Point-and-click shoot 'em up Starr Mazer now on Kickstarter

A couple days ago Steven told us that Mega Man composer Manami Matsumae would be contributing to Starr Mazer, and that she would not be alone in that endeavor. Indeed, the huge list of composers on the Starr Mazer Kickstarte...

Moonman looks like the appetizer to a Starbound entrée

It feels like Starbound has been in development for a long time now. Sure, it's playable, but it is not complete. Perhaps a similarly styled game that is not quite so ambitious may tide us all over. Perhaps we want to contro...

LyteShot Kickstarter aims to take gaming outside

Some recent Nintendo games have had little messages gently suggesting that the player take a break and go outside, but LyteShot wants to take that a step further. Built to take outside and play games in actual space with act...

Hollow Knight has about a day left to hit some stretch goals

Hollow Knight's Kickstarter enjoyed a healthy beginning, keeping up a pace to hit the base funding goal of $35,000 AUD well within its run. For the final week of the campaign, developer Team Cherry has released the above tra...

Devil's Bluff turns to Kickstarter for its online-only murder mystery

One of my favorite mechanics that is prevalent in tabletop games but not so much in videogames is having hidden roles. Battlestar Galactica's concealed Cylons and Werewolf's bloodthirsty lycanthropes induce real paranoia bec...

Ironically, the Kickstarter for Hollow Knight looks solid

I have had my eye on Hollow Knight for a few days, but had not yet pulled the trigger on highlighting it. It is a pretty 2D action game (though the color palette is a bit muted for my taste) starring some sort of insect-pers...

Devolver Digital's new title Crossing Souls looks like an '80s cartoon

Part of me wishes that a game called Crossing Souls would be an Animal Crossing/Dark Souls crossover, but I am still pretty pleased with how Crossing Souls actually looks anyway. Will we ever get sick of the totally tubular ...

Convoy: if FTL were about driving through the desert

Back when consumers were more willing to put money toward projects on Kickstarter, FTL: Faster Than Light was one of the first big indie videogame success stories on the crowdfunding platform. It set a modest goal of $10,000...

When You're Gone tells its story of love lost in painted comic style

In life, everybody deals with love, loss, and regret. When You're Gone's premise is built on the relatability of its story: A middle-aged man reflects on his life and comes to terms with "the one who got away." Protagonist S...

Uncanny Valley: Playing videogames can get you killed

Uncanny Valley, that promising survival horror game with the medical posters on the wall, has released a fun little Halloween video. There is a game within the game, an arcade cabinet called Anarchy Man, which you can totally play while you're playing the game. Of course, this may not be the best idea in a horror game...

Concrete Jungle combines city planning and deck building

As diverse and varied as games have become (particularly the independent scene), it can be easy to fall into a routine of only trying out titles with established gameplay. Part of what caught my eye about Concrete Jungle is ...

Laser Fury looks like Diablo but neon and radical

I do not mean to suggest that Diablo is not good, but the dreary look never really grabbed me, even with Diablo III's improvements in that respect. Laser Fury, on the other hand, takes a hold of my eyes immediately...

Fangamer is going all out for this EarthBound project

Fangamer has come a long way from its beginnings at Starmen.net. What started as a Mother/EarthBound-focused fandom now sells all sorts of videogame-related merchandise. With this current project, titled You Are Now EarthBou...
