Back at GDC earlier this year, I sat down with Andrew Goulding of the Australia-based indie developer, Brawsome Games to talk about its upcoming project, Jolly Rover. Let me back up for a second, and clarify what I mean by "its." You see, Brawsome is a smaller developer. And by small I mean it's mostly just Goulding.

A labor of love, Jolly Rover is a point-and-click adventure heavily inspired by the Monkey Island series, which Goulding is a huge fan. It follows the tale of a dog pirate named James Rover. Yes, a dog who is also a pirate; Jolly Rover's world is populated with odd, off-beat characters like this -- a swashbuckling bulldog captain, or a sloshed golden retriever in a local tavern.

While Goulding was the main brains behind the project, he did have a little outsourcing help; the game features thousands of lines of spoken dialogue, for instance.

The game is available today for $19.99, via Steam, for both Mac and PC.

As an homage to retro platformers it was a joy to play, and the ridiculously cheap base price made it easy to take the plunge. Gunman Clive 2 delivers pretty much everything you'd want out of a sequel, even if it doesn't push the envelope.more

February's Xbox One Games with Gold is already out

February's the shortest month of the year, but Xbox is artificially lengthening it by spilling it over into January. That's the only way to explain this month's Xbox One Games with Gold already popping up for free on the Xbox...more

1996-style shooter Strafe looks like the start of something great

I've greatly enjoyed the promotional work that's gone into Strafe, also known as STRAFE®, also known as "the goriest shooter of 1996." But beyond the head-exploding live-action throwback trailer, wonderful as that was (h...more
