The games lineup for GDC 2016's Alt.Ctrl.GDC showcase has been announced, and the control schemes sound crazy as heck, if not tasty.  Hello, Operator! has players acting as a telephone switchboard operator in the 1930s by physical...   read

Escalator Pitch: Nina Freeman argues for perpetual Sailor Moon cosplay

Indie developers make some cool as heck games, but they're not always so great at selling them. We want to them work on their pitch game until they're at Bumgarner levels and we want to take advantage of the the horrible, horrible GDC esca...   read

Woolfe: The Red Hood Diaries is a dark reinvention of classic fairytale fiction

Over the last three years, Kickstarter has totally changed the game for many developers. With the option to crowdfund projects, cut out the middle-man (publishers), and communicate directly with fans to help create the game, we've seen a nu...   read

Escalator Pitch: Funktronic Labs sells me on some all-time classics

It may not be as enthralling (or wacky) as a cat cafe timeshare, but Funktronic Labs has something it wants to sell me.  You see, these two guys heard I was wandering around GDC last week with a satchel full of money, just looking to ...   read

Let Ashes of the Singularity change your notion of large-scale RTS

Real-time strategy titles often feel large-scale by design. There are a whole bunch of units on the battlefield, and the player's tasked with directing them all simultaneously. Even if there aren't that many actual parts in the faction, con...   read

Terraria: Otherworld's GDC trailer drops more hints about its alternate universe

The Homestuck videogame isn't as dense as the comic

You know where you stand when it comes to Homestuck. Even if you don’t know what Homestuck is, you’ve already taken a side. The infamously dense webcomic has more than its fair share of rabid fans, avid haters, and egregiously a...   read

Heat Signature is the best game I saw at GDC

Gunpoint ultimately had very little to do with guns. It was a smartly designed puzzler with an immensely satisfying core set of mechanics and witty dialogue. But the title never came into play; pointing guns at people always went poorly for...   read

Escalator Pitch: Ska Studios talked me into a cat cafe timeshare

Hands-on with Cuphead: Equal parts charming and challenging

Cuphead has existed in a state of unreality to me since its E3 reveal. Despite seeing footage of the game, it remained in my mind a concept. One that I was in love with, mind. 1930s style animation. A character whose head is a cup. I love i...   read
