Bleed 2 is the best Newgrounds game you never played

I annoyed robots until they went insane in The Fall Part 2

I'll be honest, I didn't expect to ever hear news of The Fall Part 2: Unbound, let alone play a demo on the PAX West show floor. Not just because the first installment ended on a perfect thematic conclusion, although I could understand...   read

In VA-11 HALL-A, our troubles are all the same

As someone who doesn't really gel with alcohol on a physical level -- my head aches and then I need to sleep -- I've never quite experienced the full extent of the bartender/patron relationship. I "understand" it the same way I "understand"...   read

GDC 15 DLC #1: Chicken shawarma wrap

We're at the Game Developers Conference all week. GDC is pretty cool, but also a convention, which means gross convention center lunches. We want to have nice lunches all week. Not too nice. Downtown food is overpriced, even for San Franci...   read

The Flock is an intense, scary game of flashlight tag

With so many horror titles out, it's difficult to keep things interesting for players. While some focus on throwing countless monsters at you, others seek to make players feel nearly powerless against a limited number of foes. But what abou...   read

Titan Souls is my PAX Prime 2014 game of show

Confession time: I'm pretty out of the loop when it comes to the indie game scene. I love me some Nidhogg, Samurai Gunn, and Crawl, but it's not uncommon for me to have only heard about these games just before release or later. With that tr...   read

Unlike with most fungi, I enjoyed Mushroom 11 growing on me
