In the most recent backer update for the Kickstarter-funded metroidvania Ghost Song: a Journey of Hope, developer Matt White details some of the in-game systems and the decision to move from Unity to a different engine. The juicy bit comes at the end of the update, with a work-in-progress video that intends to show not only Ghost Song's Metroid influence, but also its Dark Souls influence.

The video shows off the combat, which is meant to be fast and exciting while remaining difficult. Later on in the video, the protagonist pulls a bit of a dick move by trying to crash a potluck without even having a dish prepared, and when he is called on it, he murders the robot doorman. Not cool, man. Not cool.

Ghost Song is currently on Steam Greenlight, awaiting approval.

Gone Home coming to Wii U

Gone Home. It spawned the worst debate since, "Is it art?" the dreaded, "Is it a game?" Thankfully it lead to more thoughtful writing, too, outside of that human centipede.  It was previously announced for undisclosed co...more

Shovel Knight looks great in 16-bit, Aegis Defenders just looks great

Oh my goooddd. How did I miss this until now? It's like a Nausicaa game. Thank you sir Shovel Knight for making a cross over appearance (above) in Aegis Defenders, which is how it came to my attention.  The Kickstarter already passed its initial funding goal and its PS4 stretch goal. Local co-op and a Wii U version are up next. Here's hoping. This looks amazing. more
