The Floor is Jelly looks like an utter delight

"What if everything you touched was made of jelly?"

Ordinarily, I'd say much like a pool full of jello, that's an idea which sounds fun on paper but would in all likelihood be a nightmare to clean up. Practicality is such a buzzkill. But when that concept is the premise of a game, in this case The Floor is Jelly, I'm all for it.

The moment when the house started wobbling every which way was the exact moment I became sold on designer Ian Snyder's world of jelly. Then he went and got Disasterpeace.

The Floor is Jelly was a Student Showcase finalist at the Independent Games Festival back in 2012 but it's only now nearing release. It'll be out on Thursday, January 30 for PC and Mac via the Humble Store and the game's official site.

Addiction allegory Spate's soundtrack is available now

Spate made a bit of a stir with its release last month, if not for its attempt to tackle themes more mature than shooting bullets at beefy dudes, then for its dated representation of absinthe as it exists and is understood to...more

Rain World has competitive slugcat multiplayer and bat attacks

Rain World is still the best. And it's coming to Vita (and more). Jonathan Holmes went and chatted with Rain World's developers at PAX. In the background you can see a very early alpha multiplayer sandbox that looks to be in the vein of Samurai Gunn and Towerfall. You get points for eating flies and lizards and killing each other. Did you know lizard only has one "z"? That's weird.more
