Paipa on Xbox Live Indie Games is a decent dollar game

I just played the demo for this XBL Indie Game, Paipa, and it's pretty fun. A steampunk-themed puzzle game where you're trying to keep Her Majesty's ship afloat. Her Majesty's ship that's on a non-stop flight to Mars, that i...

Edge of Twilight developer issues statement on layoffs

The long and tumultuous saga of Edge of Twilight continues. Yesterday, developer Fuzzyeyes told Destructoid that rumors concerning the game's cancellation were untrue, but it did confirm that there were severe issues at play....

Edge of Twilight NOT canceled!
by Jim Sterling

Yesterday there were rumors that Edge of Twilight had been canceled, and today we bring news that is kind of good and kind of bad. Fuzzyeyes has stopped production of the awesome-looking steampunk game, but the news is not as grave as you might think -- the game is postponed due to development issues, not canceled.

Contrary to reports, Fuzzyeyes has not closed down, and the game is very much alive, albeit in stasis. The good news is that development is scheduled to start again in the second week of January 2010. Currently, outsourcing teams are hard at work on keeping development ticking until the main studio can take over again, so hopefully things will be back on track early next year.

This is a huge relief, as we are huge supporters of the game at Destructoid. We will keep you updated on the game's progress.

Rumor: Edge of Twilight canceled

Edge of Twilight is a game we've been following a lot on Destructoid, but if recent rumors have any truth to them, the coverage may be ending without reward. The release of Fuzzyeyes' steampunk adventure game is in severe dou...

Edge of Twilight is still called Edge of Twilight

Don't panic, anybody! Edge of Twilight, the steampunk action game that Destructoid has been anxious for since forever, is still called Edge of Twilight. Developer Fuzzyeyes was apparently involved in a bit of legal nonsense, ...

Reminder: We're giving away this beast of a computer! photo
Reminder: We're giving away this beast of a computer!
by Colette Bennett

Just a reminder to those of you who weren't around when I posted this contest in the first place: the insane computer above is UP FOR GRABS in a contest here on Destructoid that ends on June 19th. It was custom made for the release of Damnation by artist Jake Hildebrandt, is valued more than just about anything you own (well, except your car, perhaps), and can be won by simply showing us what your idea of steampunk is.

How can you enter? Simple: go to the original contest post here (please DO NOT post your entries in the comments of this post, but that one!) and follow the instructions. You can submit a picture, a video, art, a song you wrote, anything, as long as it expresses your love of all things steampunk. The contest is open to residents of the United States and Canada. If you live anywhere outside of those areas and happen to be chosen as the winner, you can pay for shipping yourself, but expect it to cost several hundred bucks -- this thing is heavy!

There are some more videos after the jump from Jake, the creator, giving you a better look at the PC. Maybe they'll help to inspire your entry. Good luck and don't be intimidated -- anything from a Photoshop entry to a simple photo could win!

Show us your love of Steampunk and win this custom PC photo
Show us your love of Steampunk and win this custom PC
by Colette Bennett

Remember that sick, sick PC that we posted about a few months back that was being specially created by artist Jake Hildebrandt for the release of Damnation? Well, it's finally complete, and you can see pics of it from every angle on Jake's Flickr account. The PC inside the custom case was built by Falcon NW and sporting an Intel Core i7 965, 12 gigs DDR3 RAM, an X57 chipset motherboard, a Dual Radeon 4870X2 card, and 1 Terabyte of hard drive (5k worth of goodies!), this baby has more to offer than just good looks. Would you like to display this in your office?

Well, I can hardly believe I'm about to say this, but we are giving this beautiful PC away. The estimated value of a work of art like this is hard to put a finger on, but it's meaty. To get a chance to win this behemoth, I need you to show us in the comments what you think steampunk is. Dress up in your favorite garb. Show us something you made that fits the theme. Make a video of you and your friends. Take some cues from sites like this. Whatever, you do, make sure you're holding a Destructoid.com sign in your photo, video or art installation!

The contest will run through June 19th and is open to US/Canadian residents only. Sorry people, but this thing is heavy -- we can only ship it so far without fear of damage, and we can't have that. I wish the best of luck to all of you and thank you in advance for your participation: this is definitely the biggest contest we've ever had the pleasure of launching on Dtoid, and I hope to be able to award this in a month to the most impressive contestant ever. Godspeed!

Neo Steam launches today with new promo and more photo
Neo Steam launches today with new promo and more
by Colette Bennett

Every MMO is a gamble in my opinion, regardless of who is behind its creation: a lot of them are pretty shabby clones of other MMOs. Neo Steam: The Shattered Continent, the first offering from Atlus' online portal, looks pretty cool concept-wise though, and today marks the start of a campaign that allows players to get their first crack at the game.

Starting today and running through May 12th, Atlus Online will randomly distribute golden tickets to people who have joined the Atlus Online community. These will grant early access to the game. This will be the first of many promotions throughout the month of May. Everyone who has signed up and plays in the beta this month will also recieve a pair of the google you see above, which might be one of the coolest freebies I've ever seen. Nice work, Atlus Online!

If you haven't signed up to register yet, you can go here to do so. I have no golden ticket in my inbox, but maybe one will appear today. I hope. There's a new trailer after the jump if you'd like to see more about Neo Steam. I want to play a Pom!
