The weirdos behind Starr Mazer are eating peppers to raise last minute funds for Potions: A Curious Tale

Remember Starr Mazer? I previewed it at GDC and found it incredibly entertaining, but found game designer Don Thacker's charisma to be overwhelming, terrifying, and ultimately charming. Dude's weird as heck, but the fun kind of weird. Speak...   read

Bloodstained will take the good Shovel Knight content delivery route, not the bad Mighty No. 9 one

It's been roughly a year since Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night was Kickstarted, and you know what? Development seems to be going rather smoothly. So smoothly in fact, that the team has decided to ensure that the game isn't delay...   read
