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.

Review: Sneaky Sneaky

Stealth is a tricky game mechanic to pull off well. If it is too slow it can be dull, but if it is too fast it is more action than stealth. If it is too predictable it becomes mundane, but if it is too random it requires more...more

Warning: Girlvania is not a very good Metroidvania

When I see the faux suffix "vania" at the end of a word, I have a Pavlovian reaction. Visions of whipping flying decapitated Medusa heads in mid-air, exploring a Victorian mansion that defies all concepts of sound architectur...more
