Insomniac may have had some big publisher backing over the years, but it considers itself to be indie at its core. That's why for its next game, Insomniac's going to experiment with an open development process, much like other independent studios like Double Fine have done in the past.

The title that Insomniac's testing this out on is called Slow Down, Bull. The idea behind the game sounds like a literal bull in a china shop. The player plays as Axel the bull who tries to collect items as delicately as he can. However, bumping into things upsets him and gives way to his aggressive nature, which causes him to break everything around him. Basically, Axel needs to keep his cool.

Apart from the premise, Insomniac hasn't shared a lot about the game. That's because it doesn't yet know a lot about the game. It's being developed for PC in Unity by a small team, and they'll livestream every Friday on Twitch at 2:00 p.m. PDT beginning this Friday. In due time, we'll get to see the direction of Slow Down, Bull, along with new art, videos, and all the other good stuff.

A free roguelike with music by Banjo-Kazooie's Grant Kirkhope? Yes, please!

I'm struggling to stop playing The Enchanted Cave 2 for long enough to tell you about it. Unassuming name and overabundance of roguelikes aside, this browser-based game is terrific. You delve into a cavern in search of gold, ...more

Axiom Verge does speedrunning and gifs right

I had Axiom Verge on my mind earlier today when writing about Ghost Song, another promising Metroidvania. This slick gif ensures the game will remain there for the rest of the day. Designer Tom Happ included it in a blog post...more
