That Dragon, Cancer is releasing January 2016

Around two years ago at the Develop conference in Brighton, I played a short demo for an indie game called That Dragon, Cancer. Sat by myself with a set of headphones on, I slowly explored the hospital room of a father and his young son. Hi...

Asshole cat simulator Catlateral Damage out next week

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 played, though,...
