Why aren't more people talking about Bacon Man?

People are still trying to figure out why some games do incredibly well on Kickstarter and others barely scratch by. Games like Hyper Light Drifter and Aegis Defenders look fantastic and deserve all the success they've ...

Boston FIG had over 2,000 attendees this year

It felt like at least half of the videogame side of the show floor at PAX East 2014 was made up of indie games. The Indie Megabooth used to be a tiny side show. Now its pretty much a show unto itself. It was easy to think th...

This is the most jubilant videogame developer I know

Videogame enthusiast culture isn't always a feel good thing. Between the cold, calculating marketing tactics of publishers, the increasing hostility between different gamer subgroups, and fears of certain publishers, develop...

Battle Chef Brigade looks like the actual best game photo
Battle Chef Brigade looks like the actual best game
by Steven Hansen

I love cooking, as you hopefully well know. The initial inspiration for A la cartridge was Iron Chef, though it ended up something completely different. And so here is a game that speaks tenderly to my soul.

Battle Chef Brigade, now doing some crowdfunding, is what you'd get if Iron Chef contestants had to go out and kill their own food to serve. It looks gorgeous, which just makes me hungry. It's just like how food always looks so damn good in Ghibli films. And the idea -- have a variety of chefs go out into a persistent environment to get the freshest of ingredients to cook up -- is amazing. 

Dragon's Crown's cooking minigame was not enough. This is what I need.

Kentucky Route Zero is half off (and you should buy it)

Kentucky Route Zero fought hard in a number of categories in our 2013 game of the year awards despite only the first two of five episodes having been released. It is very good. Even if Act IV isn't out yet. You can get the season pass (Acts I-III now, IV and V whenever they come out) on Steam for $12.50 at the moment, half of the usual $25 asking price. Well worth it.

Reflex is a new challenger in twitch FPS gaming

Watching the cycles that the game industry goes through over the years is interesting. We have previously seen adventure games and horror games peak in popularity, wane, and then come back through the indie scene. It seems l...

Poncho is a cute robot in a lovely open-world platformer

It always hurts my heart a little bit to see what looks like a great game failing to gain traction on Kickstarter. Certainly, the crowdfunding community is more cautious these days than it used to be, and with good reason in...
