Tormentum sure looks like a messed up adventure game

It seems that both horror and adventure games are in rude health in 2014, so it's no surprise to see a game combine the two. The trailer above is for Tormentum, a new indie point-and-click game from developer OhNoo that has ...

Voice-controlled adventure game Bot Colony now on Early Access

Last year, I got the chance to play an early build of Bot Colony, an ambitious adventure game that you'll control with just your voice. The game has now been released on Steam Early Access, letting you play the first two epi...

Boo! Torment: Tides of Numenera now delayed futher into 2015

Torment: Tides of Numenera is one of my most-wanted games in development, so it's disappointing to hear that it will now be released in "late 2015." The release date had already been shifted to "early 2015" and now there will...

Back Catlateral Damage on Kickstarter, get some indie games

When we first saw Catlateral Damage earlier this year, I thought it was a fun little game, a kind of spiritual successor to the Katamari series only instead of cleaning up, you're just a cat wrecking stuff. Because that's th...

The roster for Super Smash. Bros. keeps growing and growing as we found out at the end of Nintendo's E3 Digital Event. Reggie snuck in a little teaser that showed a cartoon of Palutena arriving to help out Pit as he battles L...

Journey composer facing $50,000 fine from Musicians Union

If you've played the likes of Journey, Monaco, or The Banner Saga, then you'll have heard the wonderful music composed by Austin Wintory. Unfortunately, the Grammy-nominated composer is under fire from his union, the America...

FIFA 15 promises a more vibrant experience

The FIFA franchise has been built on the iteration of previous year's installments, so it's no surprise to see FIFA 15 offer a more dynamic environment over any gameplay changes. In EA's press event today, we saw a bigger fo...

Criterion's new IP is all about speed and multiple vehicles photo
Criterion's new IP is all about speed and multiple vehicles
by Alasdair Duncan

Criterion's Need For Speed: Hot Pursuit was one of my favorite games of the last console generation, so the news that the team is working on a brand new IP that goes beyond racing is really exciting.

At EA's press conference, very early alpha footage was shown of the still unnamed title that showed players using all kinds of vehicles from speedboats to helicopters in what looks to be a huge open-world, racing playground.

This could be really cool as some of the concept art we saw was neat, from jet skis flying down a water slide to a player diving from a crashing helicopter onto an ATV.

The Witcher 3: The Wild Hunt looks great in motion

As much as I've been impressed with the CGI trailers for The Witcher 3: The Wild Hunt, I've been keen to see how the game actually plays. Well, it looks like a Witcher game for sure. During Microsoft's E3 briefing, we saw se...

Yep, Sunset Overdrive still looks some over the top fun photo
Yep, Sunset Overdrive still looks some over the top fun
by Alasdair Duncan

They gotcha, right? "Oh no, another cover-based shooter!" Nope, it's Sunset Overdrive which seems to be the antithesis of the dull drab shooters we're sadly used to. Presented by Ted Price, founder and CEO of Insomniac games, Sunset Overdrive looks like some pure, straightforward action thrills. 

Arriving on October 28, I'm already looking forward to the eight-player co-op mode, especially with the ability to customize my character. Hopefully the game has the same sense of fun as its cheeky trailer.

No Pineapple Left Behind is the most bizarre game I've seen

Stop me if you've heard this one before: an evil wizard has appeared and turned all the school children in Boston into pineapples. That's the idea behind No Pineapple Left Behind, a very weird game that looks to combine a bu...

Unreal Tournament 3 and S.T.A.L.K.E.R. saved from GameSpy shutdown

I've found it really encouraging that developers are willing to make their multiplayer games playable after the shutdown of GameSpy. There was quite a list of games that were going to be going offline but after some big names...

Star Citizen Arena Commander dogfighting update delayed

As gamers seem to be more and more willing to play games in an unfinished state, it feels surprising to me when a developer decides to delay an update because of bugs. Of course unfinished games are buggy -- we expect that --...

See how two indie devs made a game in 48 hours
