This is most likely the most bizarre concept you'll come across today. Danish indie game 1916 - Der Unbekannte Krieg (The Unknown War for those who were not invaded during WWII) is an award winning project released last spring by a small team at the Danish Academy of Digital Interactive Entertainment. Yes, that one.

Apparently David Adler, the game's director, "envisioned the juxtaposition of two universes that seemed equally unreal to him: the horrors of World War I and the brutality of the age of dinosaurs." And who can argue with that? Macbody Games has picked up the project for a console release, so more people will get a chance to play it sometime down the line.

You can play the browser version of the game right now, which is pretty tense. There's just something about traversing trenches while a raptor can lurk behind any corner. Give it a try!

Review: Gunman Clive 2

I don't think anyone, including the game's creator, expected Gunman Clive to be such a massive hit. As an homage to retro platformers it was a joy to play, and the ridiculously cheap base price made it easy to take the plunge. Gunman Clive 2 delivers pretty much everything you'd want out of a sequel, even if it doesn't push the envelope.more

February's Xbox One Games with Gold is already out

February's the shortest month of the year, but Xbox is artificially lengthening it by spilling it over into January. That's the only way to explain this month's Xbox One Games with Gold already popping up for free on the Xbox...more

1996-style shooter Strafe looks like the start of something great

I've greatly enjoyed the promotional work that's gone into Strafe, also known as STRAFE®, also known as "the goriest shooter of 1996." But beyond the head-exploding live-action throwback trailer, wonderful as that was (h...more
