Indie studio Grapefrukt has been quietly working on games since at least 2009, and it definitely has a distinctive style, opting to design with the "less is more" philosophy firmly in mind. After making Tektonik for the recent Humble Bundle Mojam, the studio is releasing Rymdkapsel on PlayStation Mobile tomorrow for $4.99.

"Rymdkapsel" is Swedish for "space capsule," (or so Google Translate tells me). Players are put in charge of a space station populated by various colored cubes. Each of the different rooms in the space station are represented by single color, and each has the form of a Tetris shape.

The interlocking rooms reinforce a central idea behind the base building in Rymdkapsel: large bases attract more enemies, so it "leaves you with the task of balancing your quest for expansion with the safety of a small, tight, structure." Neat.

Rymdkapsel is one of those names that stands out but, at the same time, I can never seem to remember it well enough to spell the word correctly mere moments after I turn my attention elsewhere. A fair amount of people were cu...more

Ridiculous Fishing headlines Humble Mobile Bundle 3

I previously said that I was a little disappointed with Humble Mobile Bundle 2, so my expectations for the future of Humble Bundle's Android spinoff have been tempered. Today, the Humble Mobile Bundle 3 was announced, and I ...more

The Humble Jumbo Bundle includes Terraria, Deadlight, and more

The Humble Bundle is always good value for money but it differs for person to person; is it worth buying a bundle that includes several games you already own? Maybe, but I know I'll be getting the new Humble Jumbo Bundle for ...more

Crookz puts a '70s heist movie spin on tactical gaming

A tactical game with a '70s heist movie theme? Finding something like that at gamescom is about as unlikely as finding a videogame trailer with porn star Ron Jeremy in it. But here we are with both. more

Invisible, Inc.'s tactical espionage action hits Early Access August 19

Invisible, Inc. is going to be one of my obsessions this year. Enough that I am actually going to play a game while it's in Steam Early Access (PC, Mac) rather than waiting for the hard launch. Plus, it will be priced at $16 while in Early Access before bumping up to $20 at launch.more
