Volgarr the Viking is headed to PS4 and Vita with Cross-Buy

Volgarr the Viking is a prime example of how old-school design never stopped being fun. There are a bunch of cheaply-placed pitfalls and the difficulty curve is a lot more front-loaded than I'd like, but besting the game's obstacles is an i...   read

Duke Grabowski is my kind of SCUMM

Allow me to introduce you to Duke Grabowski, mighty pirate. He's a lunkheaded, musclebound mouth-breather who used Int as his dump stat, and prefers punching to talking his way out of problems. He's also the protagonist in his own game...   read

Review: Super Rad Raygun

Super Rad Raygun is a game I’ve been following for a little while. I first saw it as plain old Rad Raygun at SGC 2013. It was sporting a Game Boy aesthetic and had gameplay reminiscent of Mega Man. It was a fun little title that wasn&...   read

Paradigm is the surrealist point-and-click adventure that I didn't know I needed

Owlboy released today and you probably want in on that
