Indie dev Surprised Man created its game The Wager as part of the 72-hour Ludum Dare game jam in December, and has since been expanding on it for an official release.

It's an exploration game in which you explore islands in the open sea with a ship, which translates some of the magic that Colonization used to give you at the start of every game. It also has some great -- and very British -- writing.

As you explore islands, you go on text-based adventures while managing your supplies. It's great fun and can easily eat away hours of your time once you get into it. Old community member SurplusGamer, who is now a writer at Nukezilla, is half of Surprised Man's team and The Wager is free, so go download it here!

Combo Queen brings jiggle physics to an SNES aesthetic

It's not that animated breasts are all Combo Queen has going for it. They're just the first thing I noticed clicking around the trailer and ending up on a bouncy idle animation.  The pixel art here is rather lovely...more

More games need cupcakes as playable characters

I'm a jerk who totally forgot about The Behemoth's Game 4 despite playing a fun chunk of the tactical role-playing title alongside its narrator, Will Stamper, and loving every minute of it. So to selfishly put it back on my ...more
