Remember I Wanna Be The Guy? Oh God, the memories haunt me to this day! Thankfully, creator Michael O'Reilly's newest game is not going to be as outrageously emasculating. He officially revealed it last year, but I haven't heard any outlet make mention of it since.

Entitled Brave Earth: Prologue, it's an homage to old-school Castlevania, when the series was all about tight platforming and minute-to-minute challenges as opposed to wandering expansive hallways on an open-world map. According to Michael's earliest remarks, the game was supposed to be a "Metroidvania," but from the screens, it's shaping up to have more in common with the classical style. Not that I mind either way, but it'll be refreshing to go back to basics.

Despite being rendered in "8-bit," the art is very detailed and the sprite animations are very fluid. I'm excited to give this one a spin, and I hope all of you can keep your eyes peeled. Brave Earth: Prologue ought to eventually appear on Steam and other services for $5.

That Banjo-Kazooie spiritual successor 'fell to bits'

Too good to be true, I worried, when first hearing about a spiritual successor to the Banjo-Kazooie series that was to be made by former Rare staffers. "Mingy Jongo." Perhaps that name still rests in your memory. I had forgot...more

Aaru's Awakening is all about movement

I’ve been interested in Aaru’s Awakening ever since its announcement captivated me with its hand-drawn art style. It’s pretty hard to pass up playing a game that looks the way Aaru’s Awakening does. Fr...more
