SCUM, a prison riot survival game, is a-comin' early next year

I'm pretty sure we all know that we're just a few short years from seeing actual bloodlust integrated into our reality television. Croteam (Serious Sam and The Talos Principle) and Gamepires (Gas Guzzlers Extreme) want to explore that with ...   read

Okhlos is the mythological mob simulator I didn't know I wanted

Okhlos from Coffee Powered Machine is the next wacky and wild game out of indie publisher Devolver Digital. Have you heard about it yet? You should hear about it. How does right now work? In theory, it's a game that fundamentally gets me. P...   read

Hotline Miami 2's level editor is ready at last

The level editor for Hotline Miami 2 is no longer in beta, and to celebrate, I think a Carpenter Brut playlist is in order. If it seems like this rollout has taken its sweet time, I agree -- the game is over a year old and, initially, I tho...   read

Absolver reminds me of God Hand (so I need it right now)

I lucked into my Absolver appointment at E3. I had wanted to see it since I watched the reveal trailer, but Steven Hansen was booked for the appointment. Sure, I questioned the idea of him playing a game that takes inspiration from Dark Sou...   read

Downwell is great on PlayStation, with one major caveat

During the waning hours of a Montréal game jam, I spied a developer playing Downwell on his laptop. Unlike the rest of his comrades, mostly female designers making last-minute adjustments to their projects, he was enjoying someo...   read

Devolver Digital hints at Serious Sam 4 or Talos Principle 2 at E3

It's not just AAA outfits that will be heading up E3 -- there's plenty of small or medium-sized publishers involved as well, which includes Devolver Digital. It's just recently announced its involvement, which includes Shadow Warrior 2...   read

Absolver's tactical action hits all the right notes for me

Devolver Digital is coming into E3 in a few weeks with a couple of unannounced games. Absolver, an "online combat RPG" for PC and consoles, is one of them. Definitely watch the trailer to get a feel for how it flows. "Battles between warri...   read

Downwell should be great on PS Vita and PS4

I'm starting to feel overwhelmed at all of the games coming out this month. Should I plan to set aside time better spent with other, newer stuff for a chance to double dip on Downwell? Phrased like that, probably not. But then again, Downwe...   read

Steam has a whole bunch of Devolver Digital games on sale

Watch 12 minutes of Shadow Warrior 2 gameplay

I love long gameplay trailers. Cinematic trailers are nice and sizzle reels can be exciting, but when you want to know how a game is shaping up, nothing is better than just seeing some extended gameplay. And Shadow Warrior 2 is shaping up n...   read

Ruiner is a slick-looking cyberpunk shooter

Devolver Digital's Humble Bundle is tempting

"Too bad I own most of these games." There. Saved some of you the effort of having to type that comment out. The new Humble Bundle is a nice mix of Devolver Digital titles, but I'll likely sit this one out as someone mostly caught up with t...   read

What was the last game to surprise you?

I did not doubt that Enter the Gungeon would be good, but given my current roguelike fatigue, I had mentally committed it to being something I'd "get around to eventually." For me, that could have meant playing tomorrow, or four months from...   read

Fans of Nuclear Throne and The Binding of Isaac will love Enter the Gungeon

Strafe might be the Spelunky of first-person shooters

Review: Broforce

I'm all for sittin' down and drinkin' one with the bros. I usually call co-op games bro-op games. I can laugh at silly, referential humor that mostly amounts to "remember that this movie existed?" I love '80s action movies just as much as t...   read
