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.

Conflicks has a great alternate history setup with anachronistic space colonialism

Did you know that Leonardo da Vinci discovered MetaMatter? Well, not in real life, but in the universe of Conflicks he did. It turns out all it takes is to separate a chicken egg's yolk from its albumen, and to heat up the y...more

I'm afraid not enough people will play Hohokum

Hohokum isn't an easily described game. It's one of those cases where it's not until you try it for yourself that you fully grasp the appeal, which can be a tough sell. Yeah, the whimsical art direction is terrific, but the ...more

Review: Sokobond

Chemistry is governed by a definite set of rules. Opposite charges attract, like dissolves like, matter is always conserved. There are more rules than just those, but one of the great things about the study of matter and its ...more
