Woah Dave scratches the manic arcade itch

One of the most common questions one gets asked when visiting a show like PAX East is, "what's the most fun game you've played this weekend." Woah Dave was my automatic response to any such query this past weekend. An arcade game that draws inspiration from the original Mario Bros. and Hot Potato, players kill strange cyclops creatures with the eggs that spawn them, hopefully before the egg hatches in their hands.

It's a strange, quick game with fantastic music that kicks in when you start getting the hang of play, followed by a puzzling Game Over screen to make you reconsider your actions... just long enough to hit the button to start a new round. Check out what happens when Jonathan Holmes encounters this odd treat and talks to its creator Jason Cirillo.

Now I know why Devolver picked up A Fistful of Gun

It takes a certain kind of appeal for Devolver Digital to add a title to its stable of games. While the indie-friendly publisher doesn't necessarily have an underlying style that unite all of its games, there is a common them...more
