Trion Worlds' newest game is Atlas Reactor, open alpha now live

More and more games are sporting a bright cartoony art style these days, and I can dig it! Trion Worlds is getting ready to launch the tactical game Atlas Reactor at some point this year, and is kicking off an open alpha event thi...

Making sense of Atlas Reactor's simultaneous turn-based combat

Atlas Reactor is a tactical multiplayer game about predicting your opponents' moves. The twist is that although combat is turn-based, everyone's "turns" play out simultaneously (albeit across distinct phases: prep, dash, blast, and move). I...

Rift's latest update is the biggest one since launch

Remember Trion’s Rift? I really liked it; it had a lot of excitement behind it before release, and then when it came out people seemed to forget all about it. The jump to free-to-play seemed to help a bit with getting players back, b...

Trove, a Minecraft-like MMO, is out today from Trion Worlds

I know it's tough to see "MMO" and "Minecraft clone" and not roll your eyes, but bear with me here. Trion World's free-to-play Trove is out today, and I gave it a spin this morning to see what it could do -- personally, I th...

Take a chance on Defiance now that it's going free-to-play

To me, Defiance always looked like one of those games I'd probably enjoy a lot more if I didn't have to pay a monthly fee for it. The show didn't strike me as too great, but I figured I'd give the game a go if it ever went down in price or ...
