Evoland release date is sooner than expected


12:30 PM on 03.20.2013



The Evoland Facebook page has just announced the release date for the overhauled and complete version of the game: April 4, 2013 -- a mere two weeks away.

Evoland began as a Ludum Dare entry, a game made in 48 hours. The now "Classic" version of the game has some nice commentary on videogames as a whole, and is a quick little jaunt through videogame history.

The updated standalone version is way bigger and even ventures into 3D territory. There's a Steam page up now, though no price is shown. I'm really glad that the developers decided to turn this into something bigger than a LD entry, since the premise is great and the original execution was flawless, if a bit brief.

Matador is now Brigador, still a cool looking mech shooter

I decided to do some checking on Matador, which won me over early this year. This proved confusing, briefly, as some legal issues have pushed the isometric mech shooter to be renamed Brigador. I kind of miss the name, but al...more

U Craft seeks to fill the Minecraft void on Wii U

There might not be Minecraft for Wii U, but there is U Craft. Close enough? This is in the works at Nexis Games, the studio behind some games I'm also not familiar with -- do BrickBlast U! or The Dance of the Damned ring any ...more

I had a good time watching Monsterum scare people
