Sunset  



Sunset is a first-person revolutionary thriller starring a housekeeper


9:00 AM on 06.24.2014



Will you be a lover, a traitor, a spy, or an ally? Sunset takes place in, "a luxurious penthouse apartment against the backdrop of violent revolution in a fictional South American metropolis." As a housekeeper, you get to snoop, and in snooping you start to discover things that draw you into "a rebellious plot against a notorious dictator Generalísimo Ricardo Miraflores." 

The '70s as a decade should probably be explored more in games. So too should the idea of not being the man with the gun, but a regular person amid the turmoil. Of course, the whole point of Sunset is that you still have influence, and whether you choose to use it or not, and how, is going to color the story. 

Oh, and Austin Wintory (Journey, Banner Saga) is doing the music. Lovely.

Review: Axiom Verge

It seems like a foregone conclusion when looking at Axiom Verge that comparisons are going to be made to Metroid. It is, without doubt, similar in more ways than it differs from Nintendo's iconic franchise. The differences matter, though, and Axiom Verge merges classic environment design with new mechanical twists, producing a game that feels both familiar and fresh at the same time.more

Whoa, Myriad looks like no other twin-stick shooter

It takes a lot for a twin-stick shooter to get my attention these days. I like the genre just fine, but it's so saturated that it's hard to muster any excitement for the next one that looks just like the last one. Thankfully...more
