It seems like only an hour ago that I talking about how cool it would be to play a game featuring Fran Krause's reinterpretation of Pokemon. Well, what do you know, there's already something like that. The designs aren't by Krause, but they share a similar sensibility, and work wonders to scratch my itch for cute and weird 2D monsters. 

The game is currently in Kickstarter mode, and it's already brought in a fair amount of dough. With music by Disasterpeace of Fez and Krunch fame, it's sure to get it's fair share of supporters. They've also done a great job with the backer's rewards. I could see those shirts selling for $25 at Urban Outfitters. 

Most importantly, the game looks really nice, like 2D Zelda mixed with Adventure's of Lolo, all served up in Domo-flavored sugar sauce. Sounds like a great thing for fun-havers.

Monsters Ate My Birthday Cake is not as simple as it looks

Monsters Ate My Birthday Cake saw success on Kickstarter, and it's coming along nicely as evidence by our interview at PAX East. It looks super cute and simplistic, but there's way more depth than you'd imagine here. A deep ...more

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

Ghost Song is an unsettling Metroid-like adventure

Nintendo may not be working on a new 2D Metroid, but we've got creators like Matt White and Tom Happ out there filling that void with Ghost Song and Axiom Verge, respectively. I come away feeling like we're in good hands eve...more
