Games aren't cheap: It cost $1.4 million to make Monument Valley and its DLC

With so much crap out there, it's pleasant to see the mobile-games marketplace value quality. Ustwo Games has released a bunch of data for its delectable iOS and Android puzzler Monument Valley, including sales and revenue fi...

WWE Immortals looks like Mortal Kombat/Injustice meets wrestling

I'm not into wrestling but, conceptually, I'm feeling WWE Immortals. It's a fighting game from Mortal Kombat studio NetherRealm and Phosphor Games that imagines real-world wrestlers in a fantastical alternate universe. Thin...

Project Scissors dev: 'Working with a renowned film director could easily become a nightmare'

We're closing out our Project Scissors: NightCry pre-release interview series with director Hifume Kono by bringing the focus back on the historic pairing between developer Kono-san (Clock Tower) and his new partner in horror Takashi Shimizu (Ju-on, The Grudge). This was the second biggest paring of a horror film director and a game developer that I heard about in 2014. The first was Guillemo del Toro and Hideo Kojima, who are currently working to develop Silent Hills.

I asked Kono-san what he thought of the pairing between Kojima and del Toro, how his collaboration with Shimizu-san might work to combine the best aspects of Ju-on with Clock Tower, and for a final word on what makes Clock Tower/Project Scissors so special.

Thanks again to Kono-san for sharing his one-of-a-kind insights and inspirations with us. He has left and indelible mark on the evolution of the survival horror genre. It will be exciting to see what fascinating, nail-biting tour of doom he takes us on next.

I feel personally victimized by the fact that there is a Mean Girls mobile game

I took a look at the official Princess Bride mobile game the other day and it was garbage. Granted, I don't like that movie, but I know plenty of people who do. It was a terrible, uninspired amalgam of boring minigames that h...

Ever wanted a game based on The Princess Bride? As you wish

The Princess Bride is one of my all-time favorite movies. I have probably seen it a couple dozen times over the years. I have never thought that it would be great if I could play touch-based minigames based on the film. Rega...

Download Crossy Road from Google Play and wonder where the day went

Hipster Whale's endless mobile hit Crossy Road was previously only available from the Apple App Store and Amazon, but now Android users can play the game through Google Play, too. I like Crossy Road, but not as much as some p...

Monument Valley apparently has a 95% piracy rate on Android, 60% on iOS
