Vagante  



Vagante is a tough, promising 2D action-platformer


5:30 PM on 08.19.2014



Nuke Nine has launched a Kickstarter for its action-platformer with RPG elements Vagante and the best part about the pitch -- well, besides several attention-grabbing .gifs -- is the included demo.

Vagante has permanent death, randomized levels, and a willingness to unceremoniously kill you in the blink of an eye. It reminds me of Catacomb Kids -- but since some of you won't be familiar with that game, think of this as a sort of Spelunky in a dark fantasy world.

For me, the biggest draw here is the mage class because heck yes I want to shoot lightning like a madman and see a bunch of damage indicators pop up. The team has been working on the game full-time for over eight months and is using Kickstarter to fund its remaining development.

Makes it look so easy.

Review: Blackhole

There certainly have been a lot of creative 2D platform games releasing over the last couple of months, enough that there seems to be some genuine competition in the genre. If you're finding yourself in a position where it has become difficult to choose, allow me to make it easier.  Get Blackhole. Problem solved.more

It has been a long time since the original Trine came out. Heck, in the years since Trine 2's release, the series has faded from the spotlight. Frozenbyte has still been at it, and it shows with this announcement trailer for...more
