We already reported on the Rocket League themed Hot Wheels cars, but it looks like that product merger will be going in reverse, as well. Coming on February 21, you'll be able to buy Hot Wheels themed cars for use in Rocket League. The 'Twi...   read

Yeah, I'd take a first person Castlevania dungeon crawler

Turning classic games on their head can be a lot of fun. Genre flipping is always a risk, but if it pans out, it can create a whole new fanbase. The creator of the Evan Yeti webcomic wants to do just that, tweeting out a work in progress sc...   read

Human: Fall Flat hilariously bumbles its way onto PS4 and Xbox One

Human: Fall Flat is one of those games that has an incredibly on-the-nose title. It's a ragdoll puzzler, the kind of thing where your "human" will fall flat over and over again. Chances are that it's only through partial fault of your...   read

Review: Dungeon Souls

I have conquered the first level of Dungeon Souls. Its boulders and explosion-traps were ineffectual; its skeletons and bats (who are also skeletons!) have been reduced to glaringly bright coins and shards of bone. I have activated the last...   read

FTL team reveals new strategy kaiju game Into the Breach

It feels like it's been forever since we last heard from Subset Games (or as you may know the studio, "those people who made FTL: Faster Than Light.") FTL Advanced Edition came out in 2014, and since then I just assumed Subset's employees t...   read

Snake Pass brings David Wise on board, days after its Switch announcement

Snake Pass, revealed late last year, always looked like a neat little modern take on Snake Rattle 'n' Roll for the NES, but it never really grabbed me -- until this week, that is. The team over at Sumo Digital just announced that David Wise...   read

No Code and Devolver team up for horror compilation Stories Untold

I'm glad I came across this trailer, because if I hadn't, I might've overlooked Stories Untold. On the surface, this is a text adventure game, but that simple descriptor doesn't quite encapsulate it, as evidenced by this intriguing teaser....   read

Review: Bleed 2

When Bleed came out in 2012, it was a great throwback to run-and-gun platformers of the late '80s and early '90s like Contra and Metal Slug. The sequel looks a lot better, builds on the foundation established in the first game beautifu...   read

Review: We Are Chicago

Movies often base their plotlines and characters on “true events” to try and elicit a cheap emotional reaction in audiences. When one learns that the events unfolding before them actually happened to someone, it should become a ...   read

Nidhogg creator's Flywrench comes to PS4 next week

Before the crazed fencing game Nidhogg and its divisive-looking sequel (that's genuinely growing on me), there was Flywrench, a game "about piloting an aerobatic ship through the depths of space." Some of you will know about Flywrench from...   read

Party Hard 2 has a new psycho killer protagonist

I probably should've watched this debut trailer for Party Hard 2 with an eye on the scornful new protagonist or any potential stray details that might've popped up, but I was too distracted by the vibrant lighting and colors to take notice...   read

Kimura keeps it real part 2: 'Killing is part of humanity, just as is being in love'

In part one of our interview series with Yoshiro Kimura, I asserted that Kimura-san is the game dev equivalent of Bob Ross. Before announcing that opinion, I should have remembered that not everyone thinks the image of a boy kissing a frog ...   read

Wandersong will assuage our eardrums with its melodious gameplay in 2018

I once had a college professor who would call on someone, and when they were hesitant to answer he would say "c'mon, assuage our eardrums with your melodious and canorous voice!" Well, actually, he only said that to the women in the class....   read

The Binding of Isaac on Switch comes with cutesy stickers

Oh shit, there's stickers. We had heard that The Binding of Isaac's physical Nintendo Switch version would come with a little "something special," and that set Brett off into a whole Se7en routine. Now, upon finding out that first-run copi...   read

Kimura keeps it real part 1: Square Enix, Dot Art, and Dandy Dungeon

Monster Boy is a medium-sized glass of room temperature tap water

Monster Boy and the Cursed Kingdom is a "spiritual successor" to the Wonder Boy franchise. It's a cute platformer where you can switch between animal transformations as the situation demands. You can butt-stomp enemies. It's set f...   read

Review: Divide

Old-school point-and-click adventure games often left the player without the faintest of clues as to where to go next. You had a relatively small area to move around in with a bunch of items to pick up. Sometimes you could combine certain i...   read

Physical Switch edition 'beyond the scope' of Yooka-Laylee Kickstarter, but they're considering it

Did you pre-order Yooka-Laylee on the Wii U, the system it was basically born to be on given that it's an homage to the Rare-led platformers during the Nintendo 64 era? Too bad! It was canceled a few weeks ago. But if you're so incline...   read

Rime will seem very familiar to anyone who's ever played an indie puzzler before

Rime takes place in a quiet, mysterious world (that just might have a hint of danger!), contains no spoken dialogue, stars a young boy and his mystical animal companion, and has an ambiguous story that will be left up to interpret...   read
