A sequel to classic NES brawler River City Ransom? Hmmm... now where have I heard that before...? That's right! Back in 2011, a Japanese studio called Miracle Kidz was working on just such a project for PC and home console digital storefronts, including WiiWare. Turns out development was suspended indefinitely in October 2012, leaving the door wide open for others to try their luck.

Bearing the torch currently is Combit Studios, a small Canadian team that has obtained a license from RCR IP holder Million Co. to produce this currently unnamed sequel -- it won't just have a "2" tacked on to the end. Combit is aiming for an August 2014 release on PC and home consoles, and it will be announcing a crowdfunding campaign in the near future to get the ball rolling. If you want to stay abreast of updates and such, keep your eye on the game's web page.

Oh, and I'm sure you're wondering about those toys in the header. Yes, they are totally real.

Ironically, the Kickstarter for Hollow Knight looks solid

I have had my eye on Hollow Knight for a few days, but had not yet pulled the trigger on highlighting it. It is a pretty 2D action game (though the color palette is a bit muted for my taste) starring some sort of insect-pers...more

Solve your own murder in Why Am I Dead At Sea

You have been murdered, and you are now a ghost. It is up to you to solve the mystery of your own death. No, not like that. No, not like that either. Okay actually, it is sort of like Ghost Trick. It looks like the spirit in...more
