The Dead Linger is a real ringer

I'm pretty sure that everyone who plays games has an idea of their perfect zombie game. Mine has always been about fortifying an area and living in terror of the undead. Fortunately Geoff Keene and his team from Sandswept Studios are there to fulfill my fantasies.

Gone Home coming to Wii U

Gone Home. It spawned the worst debate since, "Is it art?" the dreaded, "Is it a game?" Thankfully it lead to more thoughtful writing, too, outside of that human centipede.  It was previously announced for undisclosed co...more
