Here's the new cast of Aban Hawkins & the 1001 Spikes

Jonathan and Tony were able to play some Aban Hawkins & the 1001 Spikes at PAX Prime 2013, including testing out guest characters in the new cooperative mode. The original release on Xbox 360 was tremendously fun in that familiar masochistic way, and based on how this video went, I'm utterly convinced co-op will be the way to go.

There's fun to be had, even in death. Nicalis' Tyrone Rodriguez was there to tell us about the new characters -- there are going to be more than a dozen in the final version, with varying abilities -- and offer a bit of moral support. Eventually, they brought Tyrone (and PlayStation's Shane Bettenhausen) on to show us all how 1001 Spikes is done. Dibs on Nyx of NyxQuest fame, is all I can say. Or maybe President Thompson -- I adore Tempura of the Dead.

The game's coming to Wii U, 3DS, PlayStation Vita, and PS4, so no excuses. We need to play this.

Preview: Aban Hawkins & the 1001 Spikes

Aban Hawkins & the 1000 Spikes was a great concept. It launched way back in 2011 on the Xbox Live Indie store for a whole dollar, and remains one of the best games on the marketplace to this day. But the folks over at Nic...more

Aban Hawkins and the 1,001 Spikes' level editor in action

We haven't heard anything from Nicalis about their forthcoming 3DS/Wii U/and-maybe-other-consoles title Aban Hawkins and the 1,001 Spikes in a while. That's probably because they've been busy with stuff like Ikachan, Guxt, Ra...more

Aban Hawkins and the 1,001 Spikes aims for the big time

Aban Hawkins and 1,000 Spikes (by 8BitsFanatics) didn't get a fair shake. The game is better than 99% of the stuff on the Xbox Live Arcade marketplace, but sadly, that's not where it even ended up. Instead, it launched on XB...more

Aban Hawkins & the 1001 Spikes coming to eShop, Wii U

Despite the oh-so-punishing nature of Aban Hawkins & the 1000 Spikes, it's still one of my favorite games to grace the Xbox Live Indie Games channel. Against all odds, the title is being reworked for release on both the 3...more

Not a Hero: Get a rabbit from the future elected mayor with murder

An anthropomorphic purple rabbit from the future wants to become mayor and you're his campaign manager, which means murdering all of the competition and their supporters. "I think that's how politics works." Well, it's close...more

In BaraBariBall you lose your balls when you jump

I played BaraBariBall over a year ago at GDC 2013 and it was fun as heck. I liked it BaraBari much. But it's still not out. Not yet, anyways. It's coming this year to PC, PS4, and PS3 as a part of the amazing Sportsfriends. ...more
