Um, yes please: Interstellaria looks fantastic

"Explore alien worlds." That's usually all it takes to get me a little bit interested. It's enough to get me to watch a Kickstarter video, and in the case of Interstellaria, I'm really glad I did. Go ahead; click the video above. Watch it. You'll be pleased that you did.

Viewers are immediately hit with some nice, chunky pixel art and an energetic chiptune crescendo, care of Chipzel, of Super Hexagon fame. Then the gameplay is shown, which looks like half Metroid-style 2D exploration and half spaceship management simulation. I want this game now.

Thankfully, Interstellaria has already reached its initial funding goal of $15,000, and with about two days left in the campaign, it looks likely that it will hit its first stretch goal at $27,500, adding more worlds to explore and more alien races to take on as crewmen. Unfortunately, the title isn't set to release for about a year; we pseudo-space explorers will have to tide ourselves over with Starbound until then.

Crookz puts a '70s heist movie spin on tactical gaming

A tactical game with a '70s heist movie theme? Finding something like that at gamescom is about as unlikely as finding a videogame trailer with porn star Ron Jeremy in it. But here we are with both. more

Invisible, Inc.'s tactical espionage action hits Early Access August 19

Invisible, Inc. is going to be one of my obsessions this year. Enough that I am actually going to play a game while it's in Steam Early Access (PC, Mac) rather than waiting for the hard launch. Plus, it will be priced at $16 while in Early Access before bumping up to $20 at launch.more
