Band Saga looks like the Audiosurf of isometric shooter action

Generating gameplay using music might be one of my favorite things to happen in videogames in the last ten years. Though Audiosurf released six years ago, there still are not many games that utilize the functionality. Soon enough, Band Saga will give us another to add to the short list.

Though it sounds like Band Saga's design does not allow for simple importing of music, the included soundtrack does generate stages, enemies, and items, and part of the gameplay involves altering the music in order to effect changes in the levels. Advanced players can compose their own audio tracks, and effectively create their own levels through that.

Band Saga just started its Kickstarter campaign with a goal of $29,000. In its first days, it has raised about $2,500.

Hotline Miami 2 might not be done until early 2015

Hearing that Dennaton Games is taking more time to polish up Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number -- it's now looking like late 2014 or early 2015 -- sits well with me. Totally okay with waiting. I know that should be the default r...more

Geometry Wars 3 releasing in late November

I didn't want to stop playing Geometry Wars 3: Dimensions at PAX Prime. Part of that was due to the years-long gap since the last one released, admittedly, but more importantly the game ended up being a lot of fun. There's no...more
