Behold 'Medium,' from the fine makers of 'Sadness'

In the glorious pantheon of vaporware, Sadness stands at the tippy top. The hype behind the game -- if it ever truly existed in some playable capacity at any point in time -- was only matched by the curious insistence of its Polish developer Nibris to never share anything tangible aside from concept art or vague gameplay ideas. Having absolutely nothing to show for their years of silence, Nibris closed up shop in 2010, and nary a tear was shed.

But the story doesn't end there! Members of Nibris were welcomed aboard Bloober Team, where they surprisingly succeeded in releasing a small handful of games. With confidence back in their stride, the children of Sadness sought to return to the realm of over-promising and under-delivering by quietly announcing Medium, a new IP unrelated to Sadness and scheduled for release on Wii U, PS Vita, PS3, Xbox 360, iOS, Android. and PC.

One Twilight_Prince, who has been in contact with Bloober Team for the past month, was able to score the first "screen" from the soon-to-be ironically legendary Medium. The image tells us nothing other than that the game may take place in Japan and star a gravity-defying Niko Bellic, apparently wearing the red amulet from The Secret of NIMH.

I could be wrong, though; the game could be released to critical acclaim and a mountain of apologies for ever doubting Bloober Team's ambition. I may also grow a second set of nuts and become a new Batman villain who calls himself "The Testicular Torsionist." I'm giddy with anticipation.

This KLab-developed strategy title will hit iOS, Android, and Windows Phone in the summer. It's called Age of Empires: World Domination. Commit that name to memory, and stay away.more

Monument Valley looks a bit like Fez x Echochrome

That soothing music was nice before I go drive to the middle of nowhere to do my taxes. I don't have anything that will play Monument Valley (iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch), which is out now, but if I did, I would. Thankfully an ...more
