Thirty Flights of Loving now on Steam, GO BUY IT

You've played Gravity Bone, right? If not, you really should. It's the kind of game you don't get to play very often. Until, that is, the same creator makes a sequel and releases it unto the world. Thirty Flights of Loving is that sequel, and it's now out on Steam for five dollars.

Touted as a first-person "short story," Thirty Flights of Loving will make you realize just how terrible other games are at storytelling. I'd be lying if I said I wasn't jealous of Brendon Chung's ability to tell such a smart and intriguing story in 15 minutes that most games have a hard time tackling over an eight-hour campaign. I think the word I'm looking for is "distilled." It's a distilled experience that in no way suffers from its brevity. After playing it, I don't think I'll look at storytelling in games the same way ever again.

Do yourself a favor and buy Thirty Flights of Loving from either Steam or straight from the developer

Extrasolar does exoplanet exploration, but it is more than meets the eye

When I was talking to one of the developers of Extrasolar on the show floor at PAX East, I said something that I now regret. "This looks like something I would really like, but might not appeal to a ton of other people." He r...more
