Belated Father's Day: Throw babies in Dad Beat Dads

True story: my dad used to be quite the brawler. At a stocky 5'5" (165 cm), he was often underestimated. What he lacks in height and reach he makes up for in tenacity. What I'm trying to say is that I'm pretty sure my dad could beat up you...

Mechanophiles rejoice, Stick Shift is on greenlight

Remember that time Laura jacked off a car? Yeah, it’s the reason she’s banned from every Kwik-Fix and car dealership in Britain. [Editor's Note: I was only banned from a couple of Michelin Tyre Centres, okay?] Well now...

Sym review

Review: Sym

Forget games as art -- games as emotion is the new wave of the indie industry. Exploration of inner feelings and thoughts manifesting through a screen and a keyboard is probably one of the most difficult things to build, ye...   read

The Aquatic Adventure of the Last Human has awesome underwater boss battles

It's starting to feel like underwater adventure games are set to become the next big thing. With upcoming titles like Subnautica, ABZÛ, and Neptune, Have Mercy, it looks like we're going to be spending a lot of time diving into digit...

Homophobic and transphobic game pulled from Greenlight

Congratulations, we have a new winner for most offensive game to appear on Steam Greenlight! Skaldic Games, run by christian game developer Randall Herman, yesterday put a game up on Steam Greenlight called Kill The Faggot. In Kill The Fagg...

We Are the Dwarves!

We Are the Dwarves! searches for stars in the depths of the earth

I kept coming back to the We Are the Dwarves! email that was sent in to Destructoid a few days ago. On the one hand, it isn't especially clear what kind of game it is or how it plays. The Steam Greenlight page lists action, adventure, and ...

Little Devil Inside Greenlit, gameplay details slip out

Little Devil Inside's sudden appearance on Kickstarter was a pleasant Early April surprise. What isn't a surprise is how quickly people supported it on Steam Greenlight. Steven had a hard time tempering his excitement but his skep...

Earthtongue lets you grow shrooms on April 27

Games are often too hectic with all that blood, gore and babies crawling out of a dead woman’s nipples (thanks, Dante’s Inferno). Sometimes I consider taking up another hobby like gardening, or magic mushrooms. Unfortunately bot...

Circa Infinity

I'm trying to wrap my head around Circa Infinity

At a base level, I think I understand what's going on in Circa Infinity. While on the outside of a circle, the player character needs to get to a wedge to move inside. While on the inside of a circle, the player character needs to jump to ...

Garbage Day does the ol' Groundhog Day time loop

Garbage Day is an open-world sandbox title on Steam Greenlight that sticks players in a seemingly endless time loop that can in fact be broken. (But how?) The basic premise is similar to the hit Bill Murray comedy Groundhog Day except, you...

Battlefield's top modders making 100-player hardcore shooter Squad

The folks behind popular Battlefield 2 mod Project Reality, which my Arma and Battlefield-loving lawyer assures me is super cool, are making their own original online, team-based military themed first-person-shooter, Squad. Another Unreal ...

Myriad

Whoa, Myriad looks like no other twin-stick shooter

It takes a lot for a twin-stick shooter to get my attention these days. I like the genre just fine, but it's so saturated that it's hard to muster any excitement for the next one that looks just like the last one. Thankfully, Myriad has a ...

Shower With Your Dad Simulator 2015 washes up on Steam Greenlight

Laura first reported on Shower With Your Dad Simulator 2015 last week, but we didn't know many details about the game yet. A few days ago, the dad-showering simulator went up on Steam Greenlight with a trailer and new info, awaiting the ap...

 
Planet of the Eyes
Crash landing on an alien planet is the worst. There's hazardous flora, deadly fauna, and even rock formations that seem to have some sort of blood lust. That just piles on top of the existential crisis of being a robot with ...   read

Cuuute: A weapon shop game about potatoes

Games about managing weapon shops are still novel enough conceptually and satisfying enough mechanically that they don't need much window dressing to draw me in. Holy Potatoes! A Weapon Shop?! has a cutesy art style and offbeat premise goi...

Don't be Patchman

Hahah what: Don't Be Patchman is a 'sneak-and-grow' game

As I watched the first video of Don't Be Patchman (below), I thought I had an okay feel for what it is. Plant apples, get an apple tree, shake it for more apples. Got it. I'm no Animal Crossing slouch. Next video, ladybugs are fo...

Teddy Diefenbach's Alphabeats is up on Steam Greenlight

Last year when Alphabeats was originally announced, I lamented that it was only on iOS, with no word of an Android release. Though it might not have ever released for the superior mobile operating system, it looks like the rest of us may g...

Sorry, Greenlight developers, no more offering Steam keys for votes

It seems as though developers pushing games through release via Steam Greenlight have been promising keys as a means of amassing votes from prospective buyers. Not that this notion is surprising in any way, but it's certainly a shady practi...

Windward: RPG lootin' on the high seas

To a sailor, a ship represents freedom. It grants the ability to go anywhere and do anything. In Windward, players take on the role of a captain, dropped into a tropical archipelago sandbox. True to theme, there are many options for how to...

Impact Winter's post-apocalyptic squad survival goes to Greenlight

Impact Winter looked cool when it showed up last year on Kickstarter, but potential backers gave it an icy reception; it only made about 22% of its initial funding goal. Any who were worried that it may not see the light of day can chill o...

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 way Luckslinge...

Medieval contraption builder Besiege looks splendid

Word of Besiege has gotten to me slowly, but now that it's here, I feel obligated to pass the message on. This is a physics-driven medieval puzzle game about building killer contraptions, like this ingenious windmill on wheels, to lay waste...

My brain can't handle this 'absurdly high-speed arcade shmup-like'

Not ten seconds into watching this video for Aerobat, a shoot-'em-up about "reckless self-endangerment," I fired off a staff email to call dibs on posting it. Holy shit! Gimme. Your pilot's ship doesn't have enough power to juice its weapo...

Smack a naked mole rat in the face in Slasher's Keep

Anoxemia finds horror at the bottom of the sea

The thought of dismemberment and/or mutilation freaks me out, for sure. The thought of instead being stuck at the bottom of the ocean with a dwindling oxygen supply evokes a different kind of terror. Sure, there will probably be much less ...
