Kill your friends with ghost traps: Crawl coming to Early Access

Also, the Coven is going to turn you into a toad.

I have been super excited for Crawl since last year. It's a four player dungeon crawler. The twist in Crawl is that your friends play as the assorted monsters and traps in the game, and killing the hero lets you take their place. 

I'm pretty good about avoiding Early Access games until their final release, but I may end up testing Crawl out on July 17.

Crawl is back with a new release date and an 'IRS MAN' monster

I absolutely loved the way Powerhoof handled its delay of Crawl due to some untimely tax issues that needed to be resolved before the game was released. The studio wasn't sure how long it would take to get back on track, but...more

Now this is how you delay a game

We only just got word that Crawl would arrive on Steam Early Access on July 17, but that's no longer the case. The four-person dungeon crawler is going to be late -- "it could be a couple days, it could be a couple weeks," re...more

Slay the hero to become him in Crawl

Last year we got a brief look at Crawl which has the most ingenious multiplayer system I've seen in a long time. One player will take on a courageous hero, hacking and slashing his way through a dungeon whilst the other play...more

OlliOlli grinds perfectly onto PS4 and PS3

Minimalist skateboarding game OlliOlli first kickflipped its way into our hearts this January when it landed on PlayStation Vita, and now it's rolled onto PS3 and PS4. The console version is every bit as gnarly as its portable predecessor. Plus, it features cross-buy and cross-save functionality, so experienced shredders needn't stall jumping back in.more
