Tokyo Jungle's animal outfits are too much

The PlayStation 3 game in which a humorously diverse population of animals has taken over a human-less Tokyo just got slightly more absurd. It's not enough that there are Pomeranians fighting lions in Tokyo Jungle; no, we need a cow dressed...

Offspring Fling is all about throwing babies

Do you guys remember playing Depict1 on Newgrounds? It was a puzzle platformer that fed you inaccurate instructions, so you had to ignore those directions in order to clear the game. It was made by indie developer Kyle Pulver, and now he's...

HAWP: Why is there a bird on your shoulder?
