Minecraft-inspired Lords of Uberdark looks delightful

[Update 8/7 Noon EST: Donation goal surpassed at $21,375 of $20,000 with 9 hours to go.]

Minecraft has been a quickly rising hit over the past year. The game centers around mining, and building, and more generally, simply surviving. This has led to one of the few complaints of the game to some people, with the lack of any clear cut goals. My attention was recently brought to the work-in-progress Lords of Uberdark, which seeks to take the mining and building aspects of Minecraft and apply them to a team-based real-time-strategy formula.

A lot of work seems to be done so far, and a lot of donations have been acquired though Kickstarter. The terrain deformation seems to be in place, and looks really smooth based on the teaser videos. The art style also looks nice with its cell-shaded look.

Developer Aaron Bishop has a small list of what he wants to add to the game though, including grappling hooks, an item-making system, Dorfs, Goblins, better collision detection and resolution, and multiplayer support.

So far he's received $17,145 out of a goal of $20,000. Unfortunately, this puts him short for the Kickstarter deadline of August 7th. On the bright side, a single-player alpha is intended for release on August 10th even if the mark isn't met. Donations of at least $10 to the Kickstarter will receive a licensed copy of the game when it is finally completed.

[Thanks, Oskari]

Review: Gunman Clive 2

I don't think anyone, including the game's creator, expected Gunman Clive to be such a massive hit. 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
