Tangiers is one surreal stealth game


7:00 PM on 05.28.2014



I had heard the name "Tangiers" before but wasn't aware of what kind of game it'd be. I'm still not entirely sure, even after watching this new trailer. It's labeled as stealth, though the genre connections aren't super clear in this latest unsettling, dream-like footage.

Here's more to go on from developer Andalusian: "While following the roots of the stealth genre, the game sits firmly in the leftfield. A love-letter to the darker avant-garde of the 20th century. A world built in the shadow of Burroughs, Ballard, Dada, Early Industrial and many, many others. Navigate a dying landscape searching for shards of a broken city. Steal language, re-use and corrupt it to further your goals. Journey through a fragile reality where careless actions will direct the world to fragment and rebuild itself. A unique collage every playthrough."

With all of that said, I'm not afraid Tangiers will be interesting, conceptually -- I'm confident it will succeed in that respect. Rather, I have to wonder if it'll be enjoyable as a well-rounded game. Windows, Mac, and Linux players can find out later this year. It's already gone through Steam Greenlight and Kickstarter, so that stuff is thankfully out of the way.

I am Bread is just delightful

How did that bread get up on the ceiling fan? Very carefully, I'd imagine. Bossa Studios' I am Bread is a game in which you literally play as a sentient slice of bread. And, get this, it looks fun! Challenging, too. The cont...more

Leave 'em Laughing attempts to make a game out of comedy

Comedy ain't easy, especially in this medium, so a title that tries to game-ify creating a stand-up comedy routine sound a tad ambitious. Leave 'em Laughing from Australian developer Oscar Brittain is a mashup of adventure g...more
