You need to play Super Amazing Wagon Adventure

Many of us can agree that Oregon Trail is pretty great, even if it isn't the most terribly exciting game all these years later. Even still, we have fond memories and independent developers have been able to capture that spiri...

21st Games saving Techno Kitten franchise via Kickstarter photo
21st Games saving Techno Kitten franchise via Kickstarter
by Brett Zeidler

I love Techno Kitten Adventure. I don't just love it, it's one of my favorite things ever and is among the few games I actually paid for on my Windows Phone without even trying out first. Techno Kitten Adventure is one of the most bizarre, hilarious, surreal, and rewarding experiences I've ever had in gaming. Yet it's so simple. And it may be the end of the Techno Kitten franchise forever, unless Super Techno Kitten Adventure can get funded on Kickstarter.

21st Street Games sent us an email earlier explaining the real story behind their Kickstarter. You see, the silly investors of 21st Games want the developers to ditch Techno Kitten in favor of boring, uncreative games that are more commercially viable (even though Techno Kitten Adventure has a total of over 700,000 unique downloads and they've made more money on that than any of their other projects combined). The investors simply will not fund the other projects 21st wants to do anymore.

They Bleed Pixels is a streamlined bloodbath

On first glance, They Bleed Pixels comes off like a cross between classic Castlevania and Super Meat Boy. In reality, the game isn't quite as punishing as either of those two titles, thanks in part its innovative c...

Penny Arcade's Rain-Slick 3 reboots the series
by Darren Nakamura

It's difficult to believe that it has been nearly four years since the last game in the Rain-Slick Precipice of Darkness series released. Many were heartbroken to hear that the original plan of four episodes would be cut short, leaving the rest of the story untold.

Fortunately for Rain-Slick fans, the long awaited continuation of the series was teased at PAX Prime 2011, and was shown in playable form at PAX East 2012. A lot has changed with the switch from Hothead to Zeboyd as the developers, but this long-awaited continuation does not look like it will disappoint.
