Drifter: A Space Trading Game  



Drifter: A Space Trading Game is available for pre-order

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.

Cuuute: A weapon shop game about potatoes

Games about managing weapon shops are still novel enough conceptually and satisfying enough mechanically that they don't need much window dressing to draw me in. Holy Potatoes! A Weapon Shop?! has a cutesy art style and offb...more

Hahah what: Don't Be Patchman is a 'sneak-and-grow' game

As I watched the first video of Don't Be Patchman (below), I thought I had an okay feel for what it is. Plant apples, get an apple tree, shake it for more apples. Got it. I'm no Animal Crossing slouch. Next video, ...more
