Did you remember to adjust your clock(s) on Sunday? I just slept in as always. Some game designers used the end of daylight saving time as an excuse to, get this, be productive.
There's this thing called the 0h Game Jam in wh... read
At first, Transmission looks like a pretty standard Eulerian path-based puzzle game. That is not a bad thing; I was pretty hooked on Lyne for a while. But as Transmission progresses, it follows the history of electronic commu... read
Idle gaming is anything but They did it. Someone finally made an "idle game" that stuck with me and now here I am, almost two weeks later, still obsessing. Clicker Heroes has succeeded where Cookie Clicker failed.
Granted, it's the same basic premise: c... read feature
Dammit, it's Cookie Clicker all over again. Clicker Heroes is the new game that you won't be able to stop clicking (or at least paying attention to because you've got people to click for you).

I do not envy Lazy 8 Studios with the balancing act it has trying to market Extrasolar. By revealing too little, only a relatively small demographic will ever try out the exoplanet rover simulator. By revealing too much, a t... read
This animated trailer is absolutely stunning, but it does not do much to enthuse me for Breath of Fire 6.

Aside from videogames, music is my other big passion in life, whether it's just listening to it, going to gigs or reading about various bands or periods in music history. So when I got a message from the developers of No Wave... read
Need a crushing reminder of the frailty and futility of life? Markus "Notch" Persson has your back. His web-based experience Drowning in Problems does a pretty fine job of making sure you don't forget.

Much like 2004's Collision Course album, a mash-up of Jay-Z and Linkin Park songs, Flappy Bird and 2048 have been remixed together in a wonderful marriage of things that a lot of people love, but a lot of other peop... read
Come for the control of a rover on an alien planet, stay for the [REDACTED] When I was talking to one of the developers of Extrasolar on the show floor at PAX East, I said something that I now regret.

The Raid is a great action film. It's sequel comes out this Friday. I assume it's also good. I saw a "making of" GIF where they pass a camera through a car window to the passenger seat, which is actually a disguised person, w... read

This game looks amazing. Duelyst, which I'm too in awe of to poke at the "y" in the title, started as a tabletop game that the team at newly formed Counterplay Games decided to turn into a videogame.
That vision has come stu... read
Browser based gaming just took a giant leap forward with this demonstration of the Unreal Engine 4 running in Firefox at near-native speeds. The demo you see shows Epic's Soul and Swing Ninja, and this is the first glimpse o... read
Looking for something to do today? How about be (rightfully) poked fun at by Douglas Adams for thinking you could pick up your dressing gown without getting out of bed? You can't reach it from the bed. The effort almost kills... read
Hamza happened upon Titanfall Arcade, an official browser-based mashup of Titanfall and classic Atari games. Wondering why anyone would create such a thing, I couldn't help myself. I clicked.

I'll admit it: the "Hotline" part of Hotline Trail is what got me to click. My brain must associate the word with good feelings after one too many hours spent playing Hotline Miami. Not that it really matters either way. This... read
