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!

Crawl is back with a new release date and an 'IRS MAN' monster

I absolutely loved the way Powerhoof handled its delay of Crawl due to some untimely tax issues that needed to be resolved before the game was released. The studio wasn't sure how long it would take to get back on track, but...more

Mighty Tactical Shooter is a rad looking turn-based shmup

Usually when one thinks about shmups, precision motor skill and quick reaction are what come to mind. Mighty Tactical Shooter turns that completely on its head. Though precision movement and shot placement is still required,...more
