Review: Rick and Morty: Virtual Rick-ality

I don't know how I stumbled upon Rick & Morty, but I'm glad I did. More so, I'm glad it's getting a decent amount of play considering how bleak it is, and that it's branching out into more than just one series that we have to wait forev...

This week's Rain World update addresses common complaints

It's a shame about Rain World's brutal reputation, but I'm still keeping an eye on it to see how things progress from here. Videocult has already responded with a patch "intended to accommodate some early player feedback and polish assorted...

Rick and Morty pays Pokemon homage with pixel art battle

There's already an entire, supposedly good Pokemon parody Rick and Morty game you can play -- Pocket Mortys -- but perhaps the stealth April 1 premiere of season 3 of the show has you jonesing for a full minute of Mr. Meseeks mayhem as ani...

Review: Rain World

I have a known fondness for difficult games. When applied correctly, adversity and challenge can raise a game to another level. I've gleefully lapped up the absurdities and frustrations of titles like Darkest Dungeon and the Binding of Isaa...

Rain World is ready for a March 28 release on PC and PS4

You know we're getting close to Rain World's launch when Videocult is trading in gifs for a trailer. Sure enough, the ecosystem-survival platformer is headed to PC and PlayStation 4 on March 28. We'll soon be sneaking and leaping for dear ...

Kingsway is a neat-looking RPG in an operating system

Andrew Morrish's Kingsway looks like a good time. It's a fantasy role-playing game set within a familiar but probably-legally-distinct-enough faux operating system, and this trailer nails that vibe. Things like your health and mana status,...

Review: Glittermitten Grove

You may think you don't want a game about building huts in trees to house fairies while they collect sunlight and shoot off fireworks. You may be wrong. Developing a functioning fairy society might be exactly what you want.

Rain World looks riveting in this new batch of gifs

Rain World, a game about not getting eaten, is still coming along. I've got the gifs to prove it! But first, writing on the PlayStation Blog, artist and programmer Joar Jakobsson put into words why this title continues to captivate us (and ...

Review: Rise & Shine

Have you ever fallen head over heals for someone extremely beautiful only to find out that what is at their very core is just not good, and may even be downright bad? It gives me no pleasure to say that is how I feel about Rise & Shine,...

Adult Swim-backed run and gun Rise & Shine looks slick

Rise and shine: it's not just something I put off doing each and every morning. It's also a video game -- an eye-catching run-and-gun published by Adult Swim Games, in fact -- that's coming to PC and Xbox One on January 13, 2016. "Rise" is...

Been a while since we've seen Rain World's good ol' slugcat

Rain World met its Kickstarter funding goal almost three years ago, and it has been largely out of the spotlight since then. Heck, the last time we wrote anything about the oppressive, waterlogged world was like a year and a half ago. But i...

Volgarr the Viking is headed to PS4 and Vita with Cross-Buy

Volgarr the Viking is a prime example of how old-school design never stopped being fun. There are a bunch of cheaply-placed pitfalls and the difficulty curve is a lot more front-loaded than I'd like, but besting the game's obstacles is an i...

Review: Small Radios Big Televisions

I can't help but think that living in a world where entertainment is readily available without the tether of actual physical media has made analog devices retroactively desirable once again. There's something powerful about the physicality ...

How will the AT&T / Warner merger change games?

In case you hadn't heard, AT&T announced Saturday that it intends to purchase Time Warner, Inc. for $85.4 billion. The deal is far from final, and if approved, wouldn't take place until sometime in 2017. It's an absolutely enormous merg...

Swery gets naked for Peter Panic

Peter Panic -- don't worry, this article is safe for work -- is a Broadway musical minigame compilation from Adult Swim Games wherein you, "pack peanuts, accidentally worship demons and save the theater." Today's second act also features gu...

Battle Chef Brigade: two tastes tasting great together

Sometimes we joke about genre blending, as if some games are designed by shuffling a deck of cards with mechanics written on them and then choosing two at random. At first glance, Battle Chef Brigade looks like it could have been a result o...

Adult Swim is helping bring back ToeJam & Earl

You were aware that a new ToeJam & Earl game is currently in production, right? If not, I'm happy to be the bearer of good news. Series co-creator Greg Johnson took to Kickstarter last year to crowdfund ToeJam & Earl: Back in the G...

Review: Headlander

Headlander knows what it is but doesn't know what it wants to be. The tutorial gives you a singular impression -- this game is a puzzler with light action elements, à la The Fall (a comparison I was unable to shake, even as...

Who is your favorite 'indie publisher?'

The last few years have seen a huge influx of indie games on consoles, PC, and handhelds, providing potential players with more choices than many know what to do with. While the struggle to sort through tens of thousands of game releases a ...

Ghost Song blew away my expectations, made me die a lot

I have to be honest, I've been a skeptic of Ghost Song since it was announced and then crowdfunded. People around the internet have reacted as if it weas God's gift to gamers and the second coming of Samus, and I just thought it l...
