Romero and Carmack put Kickstarter for new FPS, Blackroom, on hold

The recently announced Kickstarter for Blackroom, an FPS from Doom co-creators John Romero and Adrian Carmack, is already on hold. Fundraising has been suspended and the campaign clock has been set back to zero. An update posted on the pr...

Blackroom is a new FPS from Doom co-creators

Last week's tease was building up to Blackroom, a fast-paced, mod-friendly first-person shooter from id Software co-founders John Romero and Adrian Carmack. It's seeking $700,000 on Kickstarter, with additional funding support coming from ...

Friday the 13th The Game

There's no point hiding in these Friday the 13th: The Game teasers

Friday the 13th: The Game has a new trailer.  The horror game - which secured $700K on Kickstarter last year - is back with a couple of blink-and-you’ll-miss-it teasers showcasing what Jason has in store for you. Pro ti...

Dark Souls

Well dang, the Dark Souls board game crowdfunded half a million dollars real quick

I imagine the Venn diagram of people who play Dark Souls and people interested in board games has a fairly significant overlap. So of course Steamforged Games' Dark Souls board game was always destined to make a bunch of mone...

Sentinels of the Multiverse dev wants to add in all current tabletop expansions

Sentinels of the Multiverse is an interesting game for a couple of reasons. For one, cooperative card games can be a good time no matter the subject matter; just chill with some friends while you see if you can collectively best an inanimat...

Arcadian Atlas

Arcadian Atlas is just the Final Fantasy Tacticsiest thing

Just last night, I was chatting it up with the Podtoid crew and we got onto the topic of Final Fantasy Tactics. That's not unusual; I think we mentioned it last episode too. Look, I still think about it a lot, nearly 20 years later. I'm not...

Heart Forth, Alicia sure is looking nice in these gifs

I'm not the only one on staff who's down for the metroidvania Heart Forth, Alicia. Darren graciously popped into chat today with a gif from the latest backer update and I was so enamored, I forgot to cull the post for notable tidbits. Hour...

 
NightCry review

Review: NightCry

It seems lately we're in the Renaissance period for nostalgia and reimaginings of successful properties from the '90s. NightCry is one such game among this movement, the spiritual successor to the Clock Tower horror series wh...   read

Fear Effect: Sedna

Fear Effect is returning with Square Enix's permission

Over two years ago, Square Enix announced its pitching-and-publishing platform called The Collective, where it encouraged other developers to take a swing at IPs such as Gex, Anachronox, and Fear Effect. Today, French studio Sushee has anno...

 
End of the Mine photo
End of the Mine

End of the Mine Kickstarter looks like a creepy good time

"End of the mine" sounds like something an '80s beefcake action star would say before tossing a vaguely European villain into a mine shaft for trying to steal bearer bonds or something. But, it's actually a new game on Kickstarter. The 2D a...

 
Life is Strange photo
Life is Strange

Unofficial Kickstarter for Life is Strange sequel canceled in record time

Well, there's that. Much like the fabled Star Wars fangame, another one bites the dust. While most unofficial projects are usually worked on in secret and then torrented into the world (even if only in demo form), some go public immediately...

 
HLD review
The post-apocalypse is the new WWII -- the overused, thoroughly played-out, exhausted setting that too many games and movies muck around in. We've seen it all: zombies, mutants, raiders, and hell, even dinosaurs. It's hard to...   read

It's still super early, but hey, it's Bloodstained in action

Taking a break from sharing shaders and the like, Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night's Koji Igarashi has something else for this backer update: footage of the game for our prying eyes! It includes Miriam wielding a katana, kicking, and runn...

Days of War

Day of Defeat spiritual successor Days of War is on Kickstarter

World War II games are like buses: you wait a decade for one, and then two show up at once! Hot on the trail of Battalion 1944, Driven Arts’ Days of War hit Kickstarter last week with a goal of $100,000. At the time of writing, the g...

NightCry's Scissorwalker will be coming for you this Spring

Nude Maker's NightCry (which you may remember as Project Scissors) has a dream team behind it that should excite fans of Japanese horror. Hifumi Kono, creator of the first two Clock Tower games, is directing. Masahiro Ito (Silent Hill'...

Strafe is going to make 2017 feel like 1996 all over again

Steven Hansen... Steven Hansen. Where do I know that name from? Eh, maybe it'll come to me later. Developer Pixel Titans has teamed up with Devolver Digital for its mid-'90s-feeling first-person shooter, Strafe, and that makes a whole lot o...

Bloodstained development update offers 3D model glamour shots

Look, it's Bloodstained. While Ritual of the Night isn't quite the same when Iga himself isn't demonstrating the gameplay to you, I suppose it's nice to see tangible evidence of the game as a work in progress rather than heady ideal. This ...

Knights and Bikes

Heck yes, Knights and Bikes is happening

I should've taken Darren's advice. He told us to watch the pitch video for Knights and Bikes, an action-RPG from some of the talented folks behind Tearaway and Ratchet and Clank, but instead I only read a bit, then glanced at a few (rather...

Battalion 1944's stretch goals include a full single player campaign

World War II shooter Battalion 1944 has been doing really well for itself on Kickstarter: it got funded in three days, and in a week it had doubled its goal. Now with three days remaining, developer Bulkhead Interactive has announced stret...

Hyper Light Drifter might not make it to Wii U

Thanks to a prosperous run on Kickstarter, Heart Machine brought in enough funding for its slick action-RPG Hyper Light Drifter to target a good spread of platforms. But one of the planned versions, the Wii U port, might not pan out. It is ...

Pinstripe

Hell has never been prettier than in Pinstripe

Normally, thinking about Hell conjures up images of fire, torture, and torture by fire. Pinstripe goes more for the Inferno ninth circle look; this place is cold. But in addition to that, it is hauntingly beautiful. The wistful piano backin...

Battalion 1944 hits 200% funding on Kickstarter with three weeks remaining

I’ve been having a bit of a binge on World War II FPS games recently. Mainly Valve’s massively underappreciated Day of Defeat: Source, but also a bit of Medal of Honor: Airborne here and there. It’s a shame the genre kind...

Is it about time to revive the WW2 shooter?
