The studio behind Natural Selection 2 has started talking about its next big project, Subnautica. Described as "an open world, underwater exploration and construction game," this wonderful-sounding game is very much in its early days. "Subnautica is not in 'alpha,' it is an idea that is just starting to be mouled into its first playable incarnations," writes the team.

Concept art and selections from the soundtrack are being shared, as are descriptions of what's sounding like a highly ambitious title. Players will be able to "design, construct, and crew submarine vessels" that can withstand harsh underwater environments and the bizarre creatures that are able to thrive in such areas. Gosh, it all sounds so great, though admittedly much is being left to our imaginations at this point in development.

That said, I'm glad to know such an interesting game concept is in capable hands.

Limited run, 20th anniversary PS4 is a PS1 throwback

Just for a second I thought this was colored like the silver PS2 I always thought was kind of sucky (or the recent Dragon Quest PS4), and then I saw those PlayStation Japan live stream pictures (via Kotaku) with that ma...more

Splatoon might just be Nintendo's most promising new game

When Nintendo announced its wacky four-on-four shooter Splatoon at E3, I thought it looked cool -- spraying ink on the battlefield and then swimming around in said ink is cool -- but I didn't freak out like some people. Havi...more

Shovel Knight looks great in 16-bit, Aegis Defenders just looks great

Oh my goooddd. How did I miss this until now? It's like a Nausicaa game. Thank you sir Shovel Knight for making a cross over appearance (above) in Aegis Defenders, which is how it came to my attention.  The Kickstarter already passed its initial funding goal and its PS4 stretch goal. Local co-op and a Wii U version are up next. Here's hoping. This looks amazing. more
