The quasi-prequel to 2007's relentlessly difficult platformer I Wanna Be the Guy is finally released and ready for your *ahem* enjoyment. So, how hard is it? Considering I died 15 times in the first minute on the map screen, I'd say pret-ty pret-ty hard!

This follow-up, showed off at EVO earlier this month, is a three stage game that is supposed to be part of an episodic series. Not that it matters since you won't be able to get past the first stage. Developer Kayin hasn't overlooked his masochistic audience, however. He has added in trophies and time trial leaderboards. Hell is other people, right?

For those wanting a more thorough explanation of the game's story, this is as close as you'll come:

Gaiden is an episodic side story following The Lad in his search for The Kid/Guy. Why does The Lad seek The Kid? Who cares!

The developer said more content for the game is unlikely but shouldn't be ruled-out entirely. He is focusing on finishing up his other project Brave Earth.

You can download I Wanna Be the Guy: Gaiden for free at Gamejolt right now.

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
