Science doesn't screw around I might have never touched Kerbal Space Program had it not been offered as a review assignment. What a tremendous shame that would've been.
From a comfortable distance, I had seen enough of this hardcore rocket-building and ... read feature
Zombies are coming to Goat Simulator and absolutely no one is surprised. The zombie-filled GoatZ expansion calls itself "the only survival game on Steam that isn’t in Early Access," which is only a little untrue. ... read
It seems like these are being pushed out more frequently now. The last stable update to Starbound came out about three months ago, but before that it had been nearly a year. That said, this update seems much less substantial ... read
[Update: A separate source reached out to us privately to independently verify that these images and the number of discs are accurate.]
If a post that appeared on reddit earlier today is to be believed, the physical version o... read
Atari has taken a break from bullying indie developers to release Asteroids: Outpost, a gross and twisted cash-in on the beloved space shooter that first delighted arcade patrons in 1979.
The "open world sandbox survival game... read
State of Decay was one of those pleasant surprises back in 2013. Sure, the sandbox/RPG-lite horror game was a little rough, but it was an intense experience full of free flow situations, base building, and likable survivors.... read
Oh, right, Goat Simulator is coming to Xbox One and Xbox 360. That's happening in April.
This short new trailer says as much, but there's another reason to watch: a real goat stands on an Xbox One. It tickles me knowing they... read
When Terraria: Otherworld was announced, it was difficult to tell from the trailer what makes it stand apart from its big brother Terraria or futuristic half-cousin Starbound. Developer Re-Logic's description gave some insig... read
Whoa. What's this? A new game in the Terraria universe? I have just recently been getting back into the similar-but-unrelated Starbound, so this is especially interesting news right about now. Re-Logic released the above alp... read
To a sailor, a ship represents freedom. It grants the ability to go anywhere and do anything. In Windward, players take on the role of a captain, dropped into a tropical archipelago sandbox. True to theme, there are many opt... read
Good to go for a second term Saints Row IV is absolutely crazy. It is, without a doubt, one of the most off-the-wall sandbox experiences you can have on a console or otherwise. It's an excellent cooperative adventure as well, and it delivers the franchis... read feature
Wow. It has been a long time. I thought that maybe I had missed a stable update somewhere along the line, but by Chucklefish's own admission, this is the first one since last March.
To take a step back, development on Starbo... read
Word of Besiege has gotten to me slowly, but now that it's here, I feel obligated to pass the message on. This is a physics-driven medieval puzzle game about building killer contraptions, like this ingenious windmill on wheel... read
I liked the idea of Lucius. Not enough games place children in the leading role, much less children who happen to be the devil's offspring. But good games aren't built on potential alone.
In his review for Destructoid,... read
Oh, right, State of Decay is coming to Xbox One. Rough as it is in spots, the third-person zombie survival game is worth experiencing (though preferably during a Steam sale). Running around town with your crew, fortifying bas... read
Like a sinner before the gates of Heaven There’s something about a series that doesn’t feel the need to make a ton of social commentary, or really feel grounded in reality. The Saints Row series is like if the worlds of The Naked Gun and Grand Theft Auto... read feature
Keen Software has built a million-person-strong audience for Space Engineers, but I've stayed away from the work-in-progress construction sandbox game so far. Steam Early Access often has that effect on me. The studio's next... read
There's no stopping Terraria. I played, and I do mean played, the 2D sandbox game years ago on PC, and it was quite the time sink. Back then, I didn't imagine it'd come to any other platforms, but it has -- to consoles, handh... read
I don't know when I'll be in a state of mind to play another "sandbox survival experience," but I do like the look of GRAV and its vibrant alien worlds. The dancing is a nice touch, too.
This is a PC game in development at B... read
You know what Minecraft is, your parents know what Minecraft is, and your grandparents just don't understand why that younger family member is on the iPad all the time. It's everywhere, but why has it never received a proper ... read
There might not be Minecraft for Wii U, but there is U Craft. Close enough?
This is in the works at Nexis Games, the studio behind some games I'm also not familiar with -- do BrickBlast U! or The Dance of the Damned ring any ... read
Coffee Stain Studios has brought Goat Simulator to iOS and Android. It's $4.99.
While the game is surely best controlled with something other than a touch screen, the make-your-own-fun sandbox experience is suitable for mobil... read
The Tomorrow Children was one of the more intriguing, albeit overlooked announcements out of this year's gamescom and the more I hear about it, the better it sounds. And there's plenty left to hear -- the team at Q-Games had ... read
