Punishing platformer Cloudberry Kingdom is out this week


6:00 PM on 07.30.2013



Wow. I had completely forgotten a) Cloudberry Kingdom, that brutal-looking platformer with randomly-generated levels, even exists and b) that it was originally funded via Kickstarter -- with a $20,000 goal, no less. Guess what? It's out this week! On PlayStation Network (today), Xbox Live Arcade/Steam (July 31), and Wii U eShop (August 1). There's also a PlayStation Vita version planned for "later this year."

This should appeal to those of us who enjoy the challenge of, say, Super Meat Boy with the unpredictability of recent roguelikes. I still think the art style is a bit gross, but it's better than the original pitch for Cloudberry Kingdom and it does get the job done. More than anything, I'm dying to give the co-op a try. There's going to be lots of yelling. Sorry, neighbors.

Preview: Never the same levels in Cloudberry Kingdom

The challenge in creating a platformer is figuring out what you could do differently from everyone else. While the same could be said about any genre, you have to admit that it's especially challenging for plaformers, a genre...more

New Fossil Echo trailer shows off its Oddworld influence

When we first saw Fossil Echo earlier this year, all we really had to go on was its sharp cartoon art style and a list of influences: Shadow of the Colossus, Studio Ghibli films, and Oddworld. Some of those influences were a...more

Hot Sticky Mess is the 'hardest' Electronic Super Joy DLC to date

Sci-fi 2D platformer Orphan looks like a mashup of Limbo and H.G. Wells

Let’s go ahead and get this out of the way, shall we? Yes, Orphan immediately brings to mind Limbo. That’s perfectly fine by me, though. I have enough room left in my heart for more games that can leverage the de...more
