Tales of Cosmos is a point-and-click starring a space corgi

Sure, there is also a chimpanzee named Professor Gagayev, but we all know that Perseus the Dog is the star here. He's got valor! He reminds me of Missile from Ghost Trick, except I'm pretty sure Perseus is a corgi rather tha...

Rogue Wizards has a bad name but it looks like a cool dungeon crawler/city builder

Many of us have crawled through dungeons hundreds of times, so it takes some special kick to get us to notice. Rogue Wizards has two: a city-building component that seems like it could be addictive and a cool visual effect r...

The Ouya's best game is finally coming to Steam

Before Goat Simulator, there was Amazing Frog?, a physics-driven make-your-own-fun sandbox game that's so damn funny I'm willing to put up with the irksome question mark in the name. It's a game most of us have not actually ...

Reflex is a new challenger in twitch FPS gaming

Watching the cycles that the game industry goes through over the years is interesting. We have previously seen adventure games and horror games peak in popularity, wane, and then come back through the indie scene. It seems l...

Bad dog! Outpost 13 basically lets you play as The Thing

2D survival horror Uncanny Valley has a demo out now

Way back in April, we first heard about Uncanny Valley, and we all had a nice juvenile moment of pointing and snickering at pixelated medical diagrams of human genitalia. The trailer also showed slightly less funny stuff: da...

Warlocks takes its cooperative fantasy brawling to Kickstarter

Risk of Rain was pretty cool, so anything that reminds me of that catches my attention. Warlocks looks to have a similar feel in some ways, bringing frantic 2D battles to a fantasy world. I typically shy away from fantasy in...

Super III is worth a look for fans of Super Meat Boy

Games like Super III remind me that, no, I haven't had enough pixel-art platformers yet and probably never will. As you'll see in the video above or .gifs on Kickstarter, the main mechanic here is protagonist III's ability t...

The Testament of the White Cypress is out now and free photo
The Testament of the White Cypress is out now and free
by Patrick Hancock

David O'Toole, developer of 2x0ng, has just released his newest game, The Testament of the White Cypress. Inspired by games like Ultima and Zork, Cypress follows a monk named Geoffrey as he explores a strange and dangerous world while getting caught up in something much bigger, which maybe includes some time travel? Cypress is a one man show, as David O'Toole did everything. The watercolor art, original soundtrack, writing, and the programming are 100% David which makes this game a labor of love through and through. 

The game is a blast to explore and a great way to enjoy an afternoon. David considers this to be episode 1 of a "three episode thing," and if people show interest, more episodes will come. So give it a go! Make sure you read everything, especially the tutorial in the beginning. You won't get an objectives screen blatantly telling you what to do, so be sure to pick up on the hints from the various writings you encounter.

Oh, and if you enjoy it, don't forget to give it a vote on Steam Greenlight!
