Storm takes a natural approach to downloadable puzzling


4:40 PM on 06.29.2011




This first trailer for indie game Storm shows off the Spring season, in what looks to be a very calming puzzle game. Using three main elements -- rain, wind, and lightning -- and four 'secondary' elements, you have to guide up a seed to its destination in order to let it instantly grow into a tree.

It looks really good already, although I'd like to see more to be convinced that it won't have the same type of puzzle gameplay over and over again throughout the game's 49 levels. There are three more trailers to be released, each centered around one of the other seasons, so let's give it the benefit of the doubt for now -- if only because it doesn't involve manic shooting or jumping for a change.

Storm is set to bring you some inner peace with a "Summer 2011" release for PC, Xbox Live Arcade, and PlayStation Network at the cost of $10/800 MS Points.

La-Mulana 2 aims to be more 'intuitive,' still hard as heck

La-Mulana was regarded by some as the hardest game ever. This isn't going to change, though Nigoro's Takami Naramura wants it to be slightly more intuitive so perhaps all those deaths don't lead to warranted frustration and ...more

Open world platformer/space shooter A.N.N.E is a retro buffet

Really, why even play clearly deficient retro games? I mean, where are the shmup segments in Metroid? Where are the open world segments in Contra? Where are the line segments in a bisected triangle? A.N.N.E. is one part platformer, one part shmup, one part RPG. And this year at PAX A.N.N.E. has all its systems in play. Maybe we'll all get to play it this year.more

Boy, The Hong Kong Massacre sure looks like Hotline Miami

Hotline Miami by way of Stranglehold or any other John Woo flick, at least. Which is appropriate for the setting. Though I'm also reminded of Michael Mann's Miami Vice movie for some reason. I guess it can't exactly be Hotli...more
