Space. I love space games, and we can always use more of them. Drifter: A Space Trading Game looks like it's going to fill that little place in my heart for games like Elite. Drifter is a random- and procedurally-generated open sandbox that hopes to give players the freedom to do anything they choose. The game had a successful Kickstarter last year, so we can expect to see it come out later this year on PC, Mac, Linux, and iOS.

The art style, while simple, is stylish and captivates me. I would love to just stare at that screen for hours while I amass a fortune in space bucks. If the graphics aren't enough to get you hooked, the soundtrack is by Danny Baranowsky, the dude behind music for Super Meat Boy and The Binding of Isaac. It's a trance-inducing electronic symphony that perfectly matches the mood of flying around in space. 

Drifter is now available for pre-order from the Humble Store for $10, and you can vote for it on Steam Greenlight.

This seems like a bad title for a game, but it's Snot

I'll admit: I very nearly deleted the email about Snot without a second thought. How could a game named after nasal mucus be worth even a few seconds of my time? Still, I did my due diligence and played the video attached, a...more

GRAV is a survival sandbox set on alien worlds

I don't know when I'll be in a state of mind to play another "sandbox survival experience," but I do like the look of GRAV and its vibrant alien worlds. The dancing is a nice touch, too. This is a PC game in development at B...more

If you wish to kill this fly, you must first destroy your house

I didn't expect much from Fly in the House. Its creator emailed our tips line overnight with a nondescript subject line -- "Exploration and destruction game !" -- which is not normally something I'd feel compelled to investi...more
