Review: Never Alone

A cursory glance at Upper One Games' Never Alone, while sure to impress, won't do it justice. Its appeal is obvious, but its intention is buried shallow under a light dusting of snow. But, it's that intention that transc...

Inside My Radio is a rad rhythm-platformer

There are things to consider when it comes to playing music in public. Are you in an open space, perhaps a park, with enough distance between you and others so that your tunes don't dance on over into unwilling ears? Are you...

This seems like a bad title for a game, but it's Snot

I'll admit: I very nearly deleted the email about Snot without a second thought. How could a game named after nasal mucus be worth even a few seconds of my time? Still, I did my due diligence and played the video attached, a...

When You're Gone tells its story of love lost in painted comic style

In life, everybody deals with love, loss, and regret. When You're Gone's premise is built on the relatability of its story: A middle-aged man reflects on his life and comes to terms with "the one who got away." Protagonist S...

Fan recreates Symphony of the Night in LittleBigPlanet 3

We're just two weeks away from LittleBigPlanet 3's November 18 release, but it doesn't feel that way. I think it's become its own thing, propped up by a community that has created millions of levels, all of which are grandfa...

Electronic Super Joy: Groove City coming to Wii U and Xbox One

Eletronic Super Joy and its Groove City expansion have done pretty well so far, but I can't help but shake the feeling they could go farther. "Quirky and challenging platformer fatigue" is a problem for a lot of good ga...

Another de Blob isn't totally out of the question

Nordic Games has picked up yet another property from the defunct publisher THQ. This time, it's de Blob, a cute 3D puzzle-platformer about a blob who paints a drab city with its body. "We are excited about what the future hol...

Earthworm Jim 2 scares me to this day

Leading up to Halloween, I've been wanting to write about horror games because that's what you do in October, right? I still might; I'm playing the oft-recommended Fatal Frame II for the first time now and am planning to revi...

More Slugcat gifs? More Slugcat gifs

What's that? You didn't get enough Rain World gifs this week? What's that? Timmy is trapped in a well, rehabbing from that awkward back spasm in mop up? What's that? Old Man Tim is going to be lights out tonight in his s...

Beating Spelunky on a dance pad is quite the remarkable feat

Spelunky players are always finding new and interesting ways to torture themselves. Let's face it -- besting Spelunky's unforgiving randomly generated mazes is an accomplishment unto itself. Learning to do it with your feet ...

Forward to the Sky looks like a fun platforming romp

Every once in a while a game will come along that reminds me of the Dreamcast era, filled to the brim with great looking games like Skies of Arcadia. Forward to the Sky looks like one such title, an action platformer that ju...

Review: Shantae and the Pirate's Curse

I've always thought that Shantae is a bit of an underrated series. While WayForward can be hit or miss these days, I can always rely on their ability to craft a good platformer. Shantae: Risky's Revenge for the DSi ...

Risk of Rain's new engine should mean less slowdown

Risk of Rain is a great little action platformer that'll make you feel like garbage before building you up into an unstoppable force of destruction. Try it, sometime! You can even bring friends along. Developer Hopoo Games ha...

Slugcat gifs? Slugcat gifs

It's been a while since I've espoused my love for Rain World. It looks even smoother in this interesting Kickstarter update, as the game has transitioned to Unity. The update is a good read, but if you're just here for the gifs, well, I feel you. Ain't nothing wrong with that.
