Ink is like Super Meat Boy if Meat Boy's blood were a rainbow

Today is a good day to celebrate rainbows, eh? I mean, every day is a good day to celebrate rainbows, and even if that weren't the case, I'd still highlight Super 91 Studios' Ink. It started as an entry to Ludum Dare 32, whose theme was "A...   read

Belated Father's Day: Throw babies in Dad Beat Dads

True story: my dad used to be quite the brawler. At a stocky 5'5" (165 cm), he was often underestimated. What he lacks in height and reach he makes up for in tenacity. What I'm trying to say is that I'm pretty sure my dad could beat up you...   read

Review: Sym

Forget games as art -- games as emotion is the new wave of the indie industry. Exploration of inner feelings and thoughts manifesting through a screen and a keyboard is probably one of the most difficult things to build, yet here we are. ...   read

Garbage Day is an open-world sandbox title on Steam Greenlight that sticks players in a seemingly endless time loop that can in fact be broken. (But how?) The basic premise is similar to the hit Bill Murray comedy Groundhog Day except, you...   read
