Meet the mind behind gaming's weirdest playlist

It's easy to take video games for granted. There's just so many of them. By May 2017 alone, over 50 games have had physical releases, in addition to the thousands of titles launched digitally on platforms like Steam. A staggering amoun...

The wonderful Maldita Castilla headed to consoles

I have a special spot in my heart for Locomalito. For years, the independent designer has been putting out great freeware games in his spare time, including Hydorah, Maldita Castilla, L'Abbaye des Morts, and The Curse of Issyos. Those first...

No Friday plans? How about a Hot Date (with a dog)

I covered and played the heck out of the MERCILESS pug speed dating sim Hot Date when it was released this summer, but maybe you didn't. So already we're doing good: reminding you of a cool game you could be playing right now! But wait, the...

 
 
 
Plan Be photo

Plan Be is a free, voice-controlled stealth game

You’d think a stealth game that relies on you making a lot of noise would be pretty counter-intuitive, but that’s exactly what Valentina Chrysostomou is doing with her upcoming free game, Plan Be. Plan Be is controlled predomina...

Snake? Snake! is Snake but with Metal Gear Snakes

Grab a friend (or brother!). Snake? Snake! is competitive Snake starring Solid and Liquid Snakes. The rules are slightly different from the cellphone game you remember. There is a taunt button. Matches last 30 seconds. You can cross your ow...

 
 
Ennuigi photo

Luigi walks, smokes, and ruminates in Ennuigi

This is one of my favorite jokes. I just did this joke about that John Wick VR shooter (Johnnui), though that mostly stemmed from pronouncing John Wick with a bad French accident and just happened to be appropriate. Ennuigi (playable here) ...

Freeware metroidvania A Mini Falafel Adventure playable now

Look, we're all still a little peeved that Nintendo has neglected to make a 2D Metroid game in more than 10 years. However, while Nintendo has consistently jilted its Samus fans, we have been spoiled for choice in terms of off-brand entiti...

Hot Date is a MERCILESS pug speed dating sim

Dates are sweet. The fruit. Dating? Hit or miss. So many games with dating elements boil down to easy win conditions, wooing success. It's very easy to pick out what you're supposed to say to these fake, digital people to make them love you...

Mega Man Unlimited gets super tough Omega bosses and more

Your eyes do not deceive! Tony Ponce is writing about Mega Man on the front page! I want to talk today about Mega Man Unlimited, the fan game I reviewed nearly two years ago that made me cry manly tears. You remember that tasty jam, right? ...

 
 
 
Transmission photo

Play free puzzler Transmission and maybe learn a little

At first, Transmission looks like a pretty standard Eulerian path-based puzzle game. That is not a bad thing; I was pretty hooked on Lyne for a while. But as Transmission progresses, it follows the history of electronic communication, and i...

 
 
 
Mibibli's Quest photo

Freeware game Mibibli's Quest looks pretty mental

There is a lot to take in with this trailer for Mibibli's Quest. It starts with what seems like a standard Mega Man-like, but soon after it introduces elements from Dance Dance Revolution, VVVVVV, shmups, and Street Fighter. For a title co...

Foiled is another head game fueled by fencing

Last weekend, I dropped in on IndieCade East to have a look at some of the new games being shown off. Foiled is one such game and I can't get it out of my mind. Designed by first-time developer Gabe Cuzzillo, it puts two players in a s...

Pale Machine is a playable mouth and eyeball music video

What did you get on Christmas last year? If you're a daily Destructoid reader, then the answer is "a free weird videogame" in the form of Beokay, a music infused space shooting romp. Beokay was the first release in the Pale Machine Exp...
