WayForward is nearing the end of its "very long development cycle" for Shantae: Half-Genie Hero, a game that first graced Kickstarter in September 2013, and I think some celebratory hair whips are in order. Shantae is "done" as of this week...   read

Agony turns to Kickstarter to help bring its hell to life

After a back-to-back Hellraiser binge over the weekend, my mind is suitably warmed up to enjoy seeing more of the horror adventure game Agony. It looks and sounds so fleshy! Between the heaps of discarded bodies, the teeth-lined walls, and...   read

This is probably the funniest look at game development I've ever read

Those of you who grew up in the late '90s and early 2000s might remember Sean "Seanbaby" Reiley from his comedy website where he reviewed awful Nintendo games and comic fruit pie ads. Or you might recall some of his articles in EGM or on Cr...   read

Star Citizen's single-player campaign won't make it out this year

For a while now, Star Citizen has existed in my mind as this nebulous, far-off thing. That doesn't change today. Cloud Imperium Games has once again pushed back the space sim's single-player, story-driven, Gary Oldman-having Squadron 42 mod...   read

Igarashi doesn't sound confident about a Wii U port of Bloodstained

When we first reported Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night had been pushed back into 2018, I openly wondered about the fate of the Wii U and Vita ports. As a backer of the Kickstarter campaign, who only backed it after the Wii U stretch ...   read

Publisher 505 Games picks up Bloodstained

Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night should be a good fit for 505 Games, and vice-versa. The publisher, known for repping titles like Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons, Terraria, and Abzu, has secured worldwide publishing rights for Iga's metroidv...   read

It's up to us to save the space whales in Blubber Busters

The proper way to save a space whale from space-whale disease? Why, hop inside the magnificent beast and melt the parasitic sickness away with a flamethrower, of course! Just as nature intended. This is Blubber Busters, a PC action-platfor...   read

The spirit of SCUMM returns in Thimbleweed Park

PAX this year was a little strange for me. I was brought on to Destructoid just as the deadline to apply for media badges expired, so I went to the show as a regular attendee, and didn't take appointments like Brett and Jordan did. I still ...   read

Whoa! These Steel Assault gifs woke me right up

It wasn't until after Steel Assault's Kickstarter campaign had wrapped up and its developers had decided to shift the art direction that I became familiar with the retro-style action-platform game. This could well be your first time hearin...   read

Have you ever wanted to kickstart a game that was already out?

Usually shady developers don't make it easy to figure out who they are. Some will create fake accounts to bolster "review" scores and others will upload their games with entirely different studio names. I've yet to hear of a developer put a...   read

Review: Tahira: Echoes of the Astral Empire

Two of my favorite games of all time are strategy games: Final Fantasy Tactics and Shining Force II. I have such fond memories of these titles, and others like them, from when I was growing up. I'm always chomping at the bit to sink my...   read

Longing for more Castlevania? Chasm could be our best bet

In recent months, I've lost track of Chasm. I was on-board with the action-platform game when it was first coming through Kickstarter but, wow, that was actually back in 2013. Making games, even simple ones, takes lots of time. Making metro...   read

Battle Chef Brigade: two tastes tasting great together

Sometimes we joke about genre blending, as if some games are designed by shuffling a deck of cards with mechanics written on them and then choosing two at random. At first glance, Battle Chef Brigade looks like it could have been a result o...   read

Review: Tadpole Treble

If I had to pick one word to describe Tadpole Treble, that word would be "charming." It's a simple premise, and it seems to have been inspired by the musical tadpole pond minigame in Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars. The creative ...   read
