Just about a month ago we got our first look at Dyscourse, which has not only a distinctive art style but also a pitch that could potentially demonstrate the strengths of interactive narratives over the more linear stories that most games, books, and movies can provide. Having branching paths with truly unique consequences and important decisions is a tall order, but Owlchemy Labs made its case well on why Dyscourse should be able to pull it off.

Those anxious about whether the title would see funding can breathe a sigh of relief now; Dyscourse met its funding goal with a day to spare in the campaign. With the game funded, we can expect to see the Indie Plane Crash bonus story as well, without us having to help hit a stretch goal or pay extra for the content.

Gone Home coming to Wii U

Gone Home. It spawned the worst debate since, "Is it art?" the dreaded, "Is it a game?" Thankfully it lead to more thoughtful writing, too, outside of that human centipede.  It was previously announced for undisclosed co...more

Shovel Knight looks great in 16-bit, Aegis Defenders just looks great

Oh my goooddd. How did I miss this until now? It's like a Nausicaa game. Thank you sir Shovel Knight for making a cross over appearance (above) in Aegis Defenders, which is how it came to my attention.  The Kickstarter already passed its initial funding goal and its PS4 stretch goal. Local co-op and a Wii U version are up next. Here's hoping. This looks amazing. more

PS4, Vita getting psychological romance adventure Alone With You

 Alone With You, presumably the prequel to "Stuck in the Middle With You," comes from the man behind 2D horror Home and its spray can pastel world seems cool. You're the only remnant of a failed terraforming outfit...more
