Watch first-person puzzle game Parallax bend gravity

Parallax showed up on Steam Greenlight late last year, with gameplay tasking the player with navigating a stark, monochromatic space and traveling between two parallel universes. It looked mind bending before, and now Toasty Games has upped the ante.

In addition to traversal between the two universes via portals, Parallax also features areas where gravity is not absolute, but appears to act relative to the player's position. Check out the above video to see it in action.

Concrete Jungle combines city planning and deck building

As diverse and varied as games have become (particularly the independent scene), it can be easy to fall into a routine of only trying out titles with established gameplay. Part of what caught my eye about Concrete Jungle is ...more
