Roundabout has one of the most tedious Achievements imaginable

Roundabout, the quirky FMV game about a constantly revolving limousine, came out on Xbox One today. I've been playing it for review (coming soon!), but upon reaching the end, I found one of the most tedious, mundane, and dia...

Not a Hero's BunnyLord promises a violent today for a better tomorrow

Not a Hero, from the OlliOlli developers, impressed the heck out of us at PAX last year, yet I'd almost forgotten about it completely. Bad on me, because damn, it still looks fire.  An anthropomorphic purple r...

Early Access game The Stomping Land may be extinct

In another Kickstarter heartbreaker, it seems as though The Stomping Land is stuck in the tar pits. After a very successful crowdfunding campaign in June 2013 totaling $114,060, it was released on Steam Early Access almost a ...

Hand of Fate mixes deckbuilding with action combat

It's always fun to see what new mashups developers can come up with. Hand of Fate combines a card game with third-person action combat. Sure, why not? It calls itself a deck-builder, though it isn't entirely clear from the t...

Greedy Guns fires out fast-paced metroidvania action

Independent developers have really been delivering with metroidvanias lately, though with titles like Chasm or Paradise Lost on the horizon, it seems like they lean toward slow, methodical gameplay. Greedy Guns goes in the o...

STARWHAL brings neon space narwhals to PS3, PS4 next week

When I last wrote about STARWHAL, it still had the subtitle "Just the Tip." That's since been jettisoned. The floppy local multiplayer game about narwhals in space has made it on to Steam proper, and it's hitting up PS3 and ...

If this is what a 'rhythm violence' game looks like, I'm all about them

While watching this trailer for THUMPER, a self-described rhythm violence game from current Harmonix artist Brian Gibson and former lead programmer Marc Flury, I didn't want to blink. I also let out a confused "what?" follow...

Starr Mazer has gradually turned into a massive crossover

At last count, the Smash Bros. series has featured characters from 21-24 different series. That number fluctuates depending on if you count R.O.B. as part of a "series" and if you think of Super Mario, Donkey Kong, and ...

Hotline Miami 2 digital comic series free on Steam
by Rob Morrow

Devolver Digital and Dennaton Games have teamed up with Italian art collective Dayjob Studio to bring you an early taste of Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number in delicious, digital comic book form.

The free, five-part comic series digs into the backstory of the brutal events of the first game and introduces some of the new playable characters and factions that will appear in the gore-encrusted sequel, due to release in Q1 2015.

Each comic is viewable in the application on Steam and readers can turn through the digital pages as select music from the game's soundtrack plays in the background. The remaining three issues will be updated to the application leading up to the release of Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number.

Race through ten Chipzel songs on a laser track in Spectra

"F-Zero meets Audiosurf" brings some vivid imagery to mind, but after watching the above trailer, I'm not sure I agree with that tagline for the indie racer Spectra. Sure, it's set to some bumpin' Chipzel tracks, but it look...

This demo for Strafe didn't make my head explode

I liked the look of Strafe, a 1996-style first-person shooter. As of today, I like how it plays, too. In the final hours of the game's Kickstarter run, a PC/Mac demo has come out for backers and non-backers alike. Can it help...

Wind Waker-esque Oceanhorn moving from iOS to PC next month

Watching the trailer above, it's difficult not to see immediate parallels with The Legend of Zelda, specifically Wind Waker. The young boy hero bombs open secret passages, sails between islands, shoots target switches with a...

Terraria: Otherworld trailer shows an alternate dimension to the sandbox

Whoa. What's this? A new game in the Terraria universe? I have just recently been getting back into the similar-but-unrelated Starbound, so this is especially interesting news right about now. Re-Logic released the above alp...

Artemis Spaceship Bridge Simulator is getting its own convention

I have always been interested in playing Artemis Spaceship Bridge Simulator, but have never had an opportunity. A team had it set up at Phoenix Comicon a couple years ago, but the room was booked for the whole weekend, so I w...
