Scram Kitty is an anti-gravity war against mice in mechs

You thought all that talk about paying attention to indies was just lip service, and that Nintendo wasn't going to follow through on support? You thought wrong! Nintendo is loving the indies at its E3 booth this year! Mario ...

Super Mario 3D World is so catty

No, it's not Galaxy 3 -- and I would have been upset if it was. Rather, Super Mario 3D World is taking the 2D-3D hybrid platforming of Super Mario 3D Land on 3DS, incorporating the multiplayer chaos of New Super Mario Bros. W...

Me-OW! Gaslight Catwoman and Poison Ivy mean business

If you're looking for your weekly MOBA intake, look no further than WB Games and Turbine with their newest update to Infinite Crisis. You can take in all of Gaslight Catwoman's glory and ferocity in the above video. Her mainly melee skill set coupled with stealth abilities can make her a deadly opponent in any game.

Mew-Genics music reveals hints on the game's secrets

Mew-Genics, Team Meat's next game, has been shrouded in secrecy from the start. We still don't know much about the game other than it's coming to Steam and iPad, has some gray-scale art direction, and it involves at least one...

CatWalkOnce is a neat little free in-browser puzzle game

CatWalkOnce, an awesome puzzle platformer game for PC, has taken control of my morning. The object of the game is to walk over each blue square once to complete a level. Walking over a square will turn it into a red trap, whi...

Mew-Genics is the newest official Team Meat game
by Tony Ponce

Edmund McMillen of Team Meat has just announced that he and Tommy Refenes are hard at work on their follow-up to Super Meat Boy. It's about cats.

Mew-Genics was conceived during a game jam session, but the duo felt it had potential as a full-blown project. Aside from the teaser image above and the news that levels will be randomly generated, there are no other details right meow. Not even a target platform.

Development is speeding along, so more info ought to trickle down soon.

This ThunderCats DS trailer is ultimately pointless

[Update: Not game-related, but it looks like DC Nation is now being postponed to January for no reason whatsoever. What a crock of sh*t.] I was digging the 2011 reboot of ThunderCats, and I was under the impression that othe...

21st Games saving Techno Kitten franchise via Kickstarter photo
21st Games saving Techno Kitten franchise via Kickstarter
by Brett Zeidler

I love Techno Kitten Adventure. I don't just love it, it's one of my favorite things ever and is among the few games I actually paid for on my Windows Phone without even trying out first. Techno Kitten Adventure is one of the most bizarre, hilarious, surreal, and rewarding experiences I've ever had in gaming. Yet it's so simple. And it may be the end of the Techno Kitten franchise forever, unless Super Techno Kitten Adventure can get funded on Kickstarter.

21st Street Games sent us an email earlier explaining the real story behind their Kickstarter. You see, the silly investors of 21st Games want the developers to ditch Techno Kitten in favor of boring, uncreative games that are more commercially viable (even though Techno Kitten Adventure has a total of over 700,000 unique downloads and they've made more money on that than any of their other projects combined). The investors simply will not fund the other projects 21st wants to do anymore.
