I see what they did there: Full Bore stars a wild pig

As it turns out, pigs are a lot smarter than we typically give them credit for. That could be the inspiration behind the open-world puzzle platformer Full Bore, which stars a digging boar as it journeys through ancient ruins to discover the secrets behind its civilization's past. Or perhaps developer Whole Hog Games just wanted to go for maximum pun output. Either way, I'm pleased.

Upon further inspection, Full Bore looks very cool. It almost seems like a nonlinear SteamWorld Dig or Super Motherload. It looks like it focuses more on deliberately designed areas rather than procedurally generated ones, but still connects them in a fully explorable world. Full Bore releases tomorrow on Steam for PC and Linux.

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
