The next game from the makers of Monday Night Combat and the upcoming Planetary Annihilation is going in an altogether different direction. Toy Rush is a card-centric tower defense title built for mobile devices. If, like me, this is one of the first things you're seeing to kick your day off proper, be prepared for an overwhelming amount of cute.

The one thing that does jump out at me here -- besides who's developing the game, of course -- is the ol' asynchronous multiplayer hook. In Toy Rush, players have their own individual base and can go on the offensive to steal resources from others as well as take a more defensive position. I'm also admittedly a sucker for the premise of toys mucking about.

Look for this among the 80+ games featured in the Indie Megabooth at PAX Prime. Jeez!

Conflicks has a great alternate history setup with anachronistic space colonialism

Did you know that Leonardo da Vinci discovered MetaMatter? Well, not in real life, but in the universe of Conflicks he did. It turns out all it takes is to separate a chicken egg's yolk from its albumen, and to heat up the y...more

I'm afraid not enough people will play Hohokum

Hohokum isn't an easily described game. It's one of those cases where it's not until you try it for yourself that you fully grasp the appeal, which can be a tough sell. Yeah, the whimsical art direction is terrific, but the ...more

Review: Sokobond

Chemistry is governed by a definite set of rules. Opposite charges attract, like dissolves like, matter is always conserved. There are more rules than just those, but one of the great things about the study of matter and its ...more
