It was only a few weeks ago that we first heard about the stylish stealth Metroidvania Paradise Lost: First Contact. Since then, the project has gained a ton of momentum, getting approved on Steam Greenlight earlier this week, and passing its base funding goal of $70,000 on Kickstarter with 16 days left in the campaign. In addition, it is shaping up to be one of my most anticipated titles of 2014.

In other cool Paradise Lost news, the team hooked up with Octodad developer Young Horses, and will be featuring the bumbling orange cephalopod as a custom skin in place of the default alien plant. The animated GIF that Asthree Works made to announce the tentacle partnership is just delightful.

Paradise Lost shows off plant-based 2D stealth action

Stealth action just seems to work better in 2D than in 3D. Games like Gunpoint, Mark of the Ninja, and Stealth Bastard are testaments to that. Perhaps Paradise Lost: First Contact will be another title to add to that list in...more

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
