Heart Forth, Alicia is the best Kickstarter I've seen in ages

There's been a resurgence of Metroidvania games in recent years thanks to crowdfunding but not all of them have lived up to our lofty ambitions for the genre. Many haven't. As such, I hope you're not so skeptical as to avoid...

Welcome to The Weird Story of Waldermar the Warlock

When a developer emails you and says "Well, yet another Kickstarter," you have to smile. At least Paco at Spanish indie studio enComblot has a sense of humor about the state of crowdfunding. His team is currently working on ...

Still Alive is a PVP survival platformer

It seems like the the genre of "survival games" is well and truly established, what with the likes of DayZ, Rust, et al being pretty popular. So it's no surprise to see newer games take the core ideas but tweak the gameplay ...

Atlus picks up EarthBound-inspired Citizens of Earth

It's been said before that a "failed" Kickstarter isn't the end -- that every dollar matters even if the total amount raised ultimately falls short. That's true for Eden Industries' Citizens of Earth, a role-playing game whi...

Sup Holmes kickstarter offers free game, dancing idiot photo
Sup Holmes kickstarter offers free game, dancing idiot
by Jonathan Holmes

The Sup Holmes kickstarter is less than 60 hours away from completion and we've almost prestigued 3 times already. Thank you so much! We're going to stretch that funding towards creating as many extras as we can. There's a lot in the planning stages at the moment, including a new show with Caitlin Cooke, a new show with Samus and Sagat, a new intro song by Jake "Virt" Kaufman, and a load of other sweet surprises. That's all on top of the additional 50 episodes that we've committed to doing on top of the initial proposed season 3.

We did it, guys.

In case you missed it, we've also got the announcement that Gordon Midwood of Different Cloth/Different Tuna is offering a code for Derrick the Deathfin on Mac/PC to anyone that backs at the $20 level. That's on top of the Steam code for Retro City Rampage and the weird comic book that I'm going to draw for backers at the $15 level! So many things!

And on top that, James Montanga has created a free game for all to love called Holmesball 64! It's like a cross between Pong, Bit.Trip CORE, and a conversation. It's so great. I love it a lot. And on top of even all that is a free digital toy/app/thing by Mike Lambert (Binding of Isaac Rebirth, Cave Story 3D, 1001 Spikes) that simulates what it's like to stare into my face and make the face do things while the body dances forever. My life is great and I wish I could make you all feel great too.

See the ugly side of football in Dirty Sexy Soccer

Football sure has its ugly side, whether it's match fixing, hooliganism, and John Terry's wandering hands. Football Manager, for all its accuracy, never takes into account any of these things, but Dirty Sexy Soccer does. It'...

I met League of Geeks' Trent Kusters at GDC a few weeks back. We just missed each other at Bitsummit just a week before, but I'm glad we were able to finally meet up as I would have missed seeing a really cool game. 

Kusters' elevator pitch: imagine a game that mixes Magic the Gathering and Final Fantasy Tactics...

I stopped him before he could finish and told him that this game sounds right up my alley. Like, right up my alley.
