The studio behind Minecraft and Scrolls is set to publish Cobalt, a game about cyborgs blowing each other to bits by independent developer Oxeye Game Studio.

"This is more of a team effort than the usual developer/publisher combo, and the first experimental attempt for Mojang to help another indie game developer to launch their game."

I remember seeing Cobalt on Reddit or somewhere a long way back and immediately getting the dev's site on my feeds. It looked promising back then and continues to today.

Channel your inner rock star and smash up a hotel in Check-in, Knock-out

Conflicks has a great alternate history setup with anachronistic space colonialism

Did you know that Leonardo da Vinci discovered MetaMatter? Well, not in real life, but in the universe of Conflicks he did. It turns out all it takes is to separate a chicken egg's yolk from its albumen, and to heat up the y...more

I'm afraid not enough people will play Hohokum

Hohokum isn't an easily described game. It's one of those cases where it's not until you try it for yourself that you fully grasp the appeal, which can be a tough sell. Yeah, the whimsical art direction is terrific, but the ...more
