Amazing Nuclear Throne teaser inspired by Doom 4


Fish can lol
May 18
Rami Ismail of Vlambeer was inspired by today's super hot, extra informative Doom 4 teaser to whip up a little something for Nuclear Throne. This tantalizing glimpse of the frenetic early access title (that you can play right now) is a conundrum wrapped in a riddle. I know I'll be spending the rest of the day breaking apart this teaser frame by frame and comparing my findings on reddit. read

Anything to hear that narrator's voice again

Mega64's latest video is about one of my favorite interactive experiences from last year, The Stanley Parable. But, these people look confused. Maybe they don't share my enthusiasm for it. Alternatively, maybe they're confus... read

OH MY GOD! I am dying, you guys! I'm dead! This isn't the only parody that YouTuber SMNtoob slapped together (OH SNAP! It was our own Genki-JAM the whole time!
