I will admit it: dubstep is one of my guilty pleasures. It just makes me want to ride on top of perilously fast elevators while firing magic missiles at monsters and dodging their seeping maws. Oddly specific, I know, but apparently D-Pad Studio has a similar reaction, as shown above in the psycho dubstep Castlevania-esque fever dream Savant.

The project is a collaboration between the development studio best known for PAX 10 2013 finalist Owlboy and dubstep artist Savant. The title releases today for PC, with Android, iOS, Linux, and Mac releases planned for "later," with an Ouya release as a possibility.

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
