Review: MouseCraft photo
Review: MouseCraft
by Darren Nakamura

At first glance, MouseCraft reminds players of two classic puzzle games: Tetris and Lemmings. The pieces are there on a superficial level. Three mice walk blindly forward under a specific set of rules; meanwhile, the player rotates and places tetrominoes to aid in reaching the goals.

That is where the similarities end. The mice themselves never take on any special roles, and the tetrominoes do not disappear when fit together in a line. Indeed, a lot of the puzzles require that the blocks do not fit snugly together, which runs counter to conventional play with them. MouseCraft is very much its own puzzle game with its own puzzle premise, and that premise is pretty good.

Kill your friends with ghost traps: Crawl coming to Early Access photo
Kill your friends with ghost traps: Crawl coming to Early Access
by Steven Hansen

Also, the Coven is going to turn you into a toad.

I have been super excited for Crawl since last year. It's a four player dungeon crawler. The twist in Crawl is that your friends play as the assorted monsters and traps in the game, and killing the hero lets you take their place. 

I'm pretty good about avoiding Early Access games until their final release, but I may end up testing Crawl out on July 17.

Cuphead is 40% done, going to be a trilogy

This Thief Town trailer is exactly what I'll mimic if I ever create one

Tempting: Temporus is a squat little time traveling platformer

Look, a 2D platformer on Kickstarter, Temporus. Who would've thought we'd see one of them. It looks pretty great, though, thanks in large part to the art of Peter Queckenstedt. "The main premise of the game is time trav...
