Ashen Rift: A man and his dog  



Roam the wastelands with your dog in Ashen Rift


5:30 PM on 03.10.2014



I'm a sucker for a post-apocalyptic wasteland (I grew up in Glasgow, go figure), so Ashen Rift: A man and his dog looks to be the type of game I'd like to play. Set after a cataclysmic event, a lone survivor heads to the middle of America in an attempt to shut down the thing he believes caused this damage, something called The Rift. 

Whilst I was a bit bummed out to hear this isn't a videogame sequel to the 1975 cult hit A Boy and His Dog, developer Barry Collins has put together an impressive-looking demo in just five months and he's looking for $45,000 CAD to work on finishing the project.

Any game that gives me a canine companion gets the thumbs up in my book, so I'll be keen on seeing if Ashen Rift hits its goal.

Slender: The Arrival is out on PS4 and Xbox One today

Do people still think Slenderman is scary? I don't really know; it seems like the well-dressed humanoid has faded from the collective consciousness lately. Maybe it's just that I don't visit meme websites any more. Slender: ...more

State of Decay: Year One Survival Edition debut trailer, releases April 28

State of Decay was one of those pleasant surprises back in 2013. Sure, the sandbox/RPG-lite horror game was a little rough, but it was an intense experience full of free flow situations, base building, and likable survivors....more

Resident Evil Revelations 2's extra episodes are fun, but non-essential

As you might be aware, Capcom is taking a really weird approach to Resident Evil: Revelations 2. In addition to bringing in an episodic format, they've also hitched two secretive "extra episodes" to the package, exclusive to ...more
