The Powerpuff Girls return in Defenders of Townsville

Powerpuff Girls: Defenders of Townsville is heading to Steam for Windows, Mac, and Linux on March 14, 2014. Huh? Where did this come from?

Radiangames, a developer known for its line of Xbox Live indie games, was in need of contract work last summer and pitched ideas to various companies, including Cartoon Network.

"It turned out that Cartoon Network would have a Powerpuff Girls special TV episode coming out in January, and [one of the pitches, a "Metroidvania+Defender game"] would be a great fit," wrote Radiangames. "Just had to give it a little dose of Gunstar Heroes-esque mixed melee+shooting action to arrive at the final gameplay combination."

Wild! The aforementioned special, The Powerpuff Girls: Dance Pantsed, featured a new art style (and Ringo Starr, amazingly enough). The art direction has been replicated in Defenders of Townsville, as shown in this trailer, however there's an option for "classic" visuals.

Sugar, Spice, and Everything Nice! [Radiangames]

Wow, a Humble Indie Bundle I'm going to buy

It's been some time since I've last gone in on a Humble Indie Bundle. These days, if a game is around long enough to wind up packaged at a discounted rate, it's already made its way into my library, or I'm just not interested...more

Laser Fury looks like Diablo but neon and radical

I do not mean to suggest that Diablo is not good, but the dreary look never really grabbed me, even with Diablo III's improvements in that respect. Laser Fury, on the other hand, takes a hold of my eyes immediately...more

SteamWorld Heist's first screenshot leaves me wondering

While I tend to get annoyed when studios put out a lone screenshot, I can tolerate the practice depending on the circumstances. Image & Form doesn't have much in the way of assets for SteamWorld Heist, its turn-based foll...more
