Boo! Torment: Tides of Numenera now delayed futher into 2015

Torment: Tides of Numenera is one of my most-wanted games in development, so it's disappointing to hear that it will now be released in "late 2015." The release date had already been shifted to "early 2015" and now there will...

Little house of horrors: FranknJohn is one adorable roguelike

FranknJohn has to be one of the cutest Kickstarter projects I've seen, especially given the fact that it's a roguelike set in a haunted house full of nods to B-movies. Plus, the titular FranknJohn himself has a stake going t...

Reading Rainbow wants to fly to consoles like PlayStation and Xbox

Confession time: Ever since the Reading Rainbow Kickstarter was announced earlier this week, we've been looking for a reason to write about it. It's a formative relic of our youths, how could we not want to discuss it? With ...

Last we saw Icarus Proudbottom, he was teaching us typing, and before that he was demonstrating his chocolate fountain. Suffice it to say, the Icarus Proudbottom franchise is all over the place, in the best way possible. Now...
