This new trailer for The Splatters makes it look so easy

On the surface, The Splatters might look problematically straightforward. But that really isn't the case, and thankfully, SpikySnail Games has a new video to help prove this point.

With the "Flip" mechanic, you're able to reverse directions. At first glance, it looks like a mere time rewind, though it's more complicated than that in practice. Watch the video to see what I mean. Or read SpikySnail's blog post, which delves into some of the design theory behind the move.

I'm still greatly anticipating this game, and hopefully more of you will join in as we move closer to The Splatters' release this spring.

Review: CounterSpy

CounterSpy's stylized Cold War re-imagining is on point. It looks good, with its spindly spy running, rolling, and leaping like a jumping spider. It sounds good, with its jazzy soundtrack that reminds of James Bond.  Unfortunately, the rest of it feels half-baked. more
