Kickstarter for sci-fi platformer Orphan underway

And before I knew it, Windy Hill Studio's attractive-looking action platformer Orphan had jumped from Greenlight approval on Steam to being over halfway through its Kickstarter campaign. So it is sometimes in the games writi...

The only game about mechanical wallabies you have to pay attention to this year

Five Nights at Freddy's sort of has a monopoly on mechanical animals in the gaming space right now, but there's an up-and-coming title that will give it a run for its money, albeit in a very different way. That game is ...

After five long years, Portal: Outside Influence nears completion

Monochromatic puzzle platformer Renoir coming to PC

Okay, we have seen grayscale puzzle platformers before, but the film noir style is still largely underused in the gaming space. Renoir wants to fix that. I'm down with the idea, but developer Soulbound Games has a long way t...

Deception IV: Another Princess adds a school and hospital setting

I can't contain my excitement for Deception IV: Another Princess. While everything shown off so far has been great, including the first playable character with direct physical attacks, these new settings are the best fea...

Impact Winter's post-apocalyptic squad survival goes to Greenlight

Impact Winter looked cool when it showed up last year on Kickstarter, but potential backers gave it an icy reception; it only made about 22% of its initial funding goal. Any who were worried that it may not see the light of ...

There's a new Warhammer game about shooting and slicing rat-men with your friends

It's not a day-making new Space Marine or Dawn of War, but as far as Games Workshop adaptations go, Warhammer: End Times - Vermintide (PC, PS4, Xbox One) seems neat. As a cooperative first-person shooter / melee-combat game ...

Luckslinger blends 2D shooting, westerns, and hip-hop

Luck is a concept rarely addressed directly in games. Sure, there are tons of games that use random number generators for everything from environment generation to damage calculation, and luck does factor into those. But the...

In Darkest Dungeon, what doesn't kill you only makes you more peculiar photo
In Darkest Dungeon, what doesn't kill you only makes you more peculiar
by Rob Morrow

“If I am mad, it is mercy! May the gods pity the man who in his callousness can remain sane to the hideous end!” – Howard Phillips Lovecraft, The Temple

As you might be aware by now, Darkest Dungeon is a visually striking, turn-based role-playing game featuring roguelike elements with a very clever twist. Unlike conventional RPGs, Red Hook's incorporates a unique system of psychological pressures and their subsequent side effects that run parallel and eventually intertwine with your party's development, creating an entirely new experience each time that you roll a new game.

As your party gains in experience by adventuring through these darkened and harrowing lands, you'll follow the familiar routine of periodically upgrading their particular abilities and equipment, making each character a little more effective at what they do as you progress. What makes Darkest Dungeon so singular is that second set of mechanics I mentioned: the Affliction system.

Rico Rodriguez's not a man that acts in moderation. We're not likely to see screenshots of him grabbing brunch at that great spot down the street, or hanging laundry to dry. He'd probably dry his laundry by blowing up the ent...
