You can play Crypt of the Necrodancer with a DDR mat

The infectiously rhythmic Crypt of the Necrodancer (I hardly even know her!) was one of our games of the show last year at PAX Prime. It's back at PAX East, so Holmes tried to do an interview while playing. On a DDR mat. Whi...

Below is a hardcore game that you'll want to take your time with

Ever since Below was teased at Microsoft's E3 press briefing last year, it's been one of the titles that I've been most intrigued by. The art style and the fact that Capy Games was the developer were the two main reasons...

Yup, Capy is also bringing Below to Steam

Capy never said its Xbox One roguelike Below would come to Steam -- but it also didn't deny that it might, noting back in August that the game was a timed exclusive on Microsoft's platform.

Rogue Legacy became profitable within its first hour on sale

Rogue Legacy was one of my favorite games of 2013, so I had to attend the postmortem talk on its development at the Game Developers Conference this year. Their main point of focus was developing games on a budget. Brothers Te...

The Hero Trap lets you play as a berserk luchador bear

"Lightning fast dungeon crawler" may seem like an oxymoron, but the trailer above for The Hero Trap shows what it means by that: frenetic action gameplay within an ever-changing combination of dungeon arenas. To be honest, I...

Laser-filled The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth .gifs bring me joy

The official Tumblr for The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth has been rolling out regular, punchy updates for a while now -- lots of blurbs that, while exciting, haven't necessarily been worth a full post here. Being the fan of .gif...

Proven Lands explores colorful, procedurally generated planets

Exploring space is awesome. It always has been, and it always will be. With the rise of procedural content generation, the potential for utterly massive universes to explore has been unlocked, and a flood of titles are showi...

Review: Tower of Guns

As a combination of the first-person shooter genre and the modern-day roguelikes, Tower of Guns is being pushed as a “lunchbreak FPS.” After playing, I can say this is a pretty accurate description, except I only ...

Review: Sorcery Saga: Curse of the Great Curry God

With the amount of role-playing adventures I’ve journeyed through in my life that culminate in apocalyptic showdowns, I’m a little tired. Save the world, rinse, and repeat. It’s so rare that a Japanese RPG d...

Review: Soul Fjord

Ouya users have not had a lot to be excited about for a while now. Excepting a few titles like Towerfall, there is not much worth owning on the microconsole, and especially few games that are not available elsewhere. As one o...
