Heroes Reborn gets two games, Gemini and Enigma

I’d forgotten Heroes was even a thing. The first series was great, but then I remember Netflix had problems with the subtitles in the second season so I stopped watching. Apparently that was a good idea, as no one liked how it went f...

Phosphor: PC gamers more willing to embrace new ideas

Phosphor Games' Project Awakened may, at one point, have been viable for the console market, but the studio is now looking to exclusively target the PC crowd. This seems true of a lot of gaming's best new projects lately, and there's a reas...

Phosphor: Unreal Engine 4 'the best engine available'

In our exclusive look at the reawakened Project Awakened, Phosphor Games revealed the Kickstarter-backed sandbox game will rock Unreal Engine 4 in its final build. It already looked promising in UE3, but the team hopes to be more "futurepro...

Phosphor: Influence of major publishers is waning

Awakened is one of many projects turning to crowd funding after dealing with fearful and unreceptive publishers. The independent scene is only growing as major "AAA" creators shy away from new ideas, and according to Phosphor Games' Chip Si...

Project Awakened REawakens courtesy of Kickstarter

It's been a long time since Destructoid last got to speak with Phosphor Games about Awakened, the incredibly promising superhero sandbox game that caught our eye nearly two years ago. In that time, Phosphor's made a living with some high-pr...

Review: Horn

Phosphor Games knocked it out of the park with The Dark Meadow, providing a genuinely enthralling mobile game that had an interesting story and one Hell of a primary antagonist. Nevertheless, the Unreal-powered combat crawler still stood a ...

Phosphor talks Horn, mobile gaming, and touch controls

While many "hardcore" gamers continue to look down on mobile gaming, there are a number of studios who view it as a legitimate gaming platform, capable of the kind of "AAA" experiences we're used to. Phosphor Games is one of the front-runne...

Horn's dev tackles the 'mobile replacing console' claims

Horn developer Phosphor Games won itself some enemies when it announced its new iOS game by saying mobile phones were "replacing" consoles. During an interview with game director Chip Sineni, we asked about the reaction to this statement, a...

Horn gets its first trailer, RAWR LET'S HATE IT RAWR!

Ever since Phosphor Games announced that mobile gaming is replacing console gaming, it's become something of a villain. While its last game, Dark Meadow, was excellent, any talk of the upcoming Horn has been flavored with vitriol and disgu...

Preview: Horn could be an admirable game

So, there certainly was a reaction to the newly announced Horn when Jim posted a little clip a few days ago in which the game was shown off and Phosphor Games’ Chip Sineni made some innocent claims about the mobile and tablet spheres ...

Horn announced for iOS, will prove consoles are DEAD

The headline are the developer's words, not mine. Well, they're not even really the developer's words, but they've gotten at least three angry people reading, and that's the point. What Phosphor Games' Chip Sineni did say, however, is that...

The Dark Meadow now on sale for one pathetic dollar!

If you were interested in The Dark Meadow but felt its original asking price was a bit too steep, you've got no excuse now. Phosphor Games' darkly humorous slash 'em up is now a measly dollar on iTunes, so if you've got a buck to spare, it ...

Review: The Dark Meadow

Phosphor Games is a studio pulled together from the ashes of Midway. When the company went under, it left behind an open-world superhero game, one that the developers didn't want to see die. They reformed as Phosphor, and rebuilt the game a...

PSA: Dark Meadow out for iOS, it's good stuff!

Phosphor Games' Dark Meadow released last night for iOS, and I'd like to remind you all of that. I played it extensively last night and was thoroughly absorbed. It has melee combat similar to Infinity Blade, but spices things up with ranged...

The Dark Meadow gets spooky trailer, spooky screens

Here's a slick little teaser trailer for Phosphor's The Dark Meadow, an iOS title I'm pretty excited about. The video is really nicely done, and seems to indicate that this will most certainly be a more involving type of mobile game. ...

The Dark Meadow screens are all spooky n' stuff

Here's a gallery of creepy screenshots from Phosphor's The Dark Meadow, which was announced yesterday for iOS devices. It seems that more studios are getting confident enough to put what some would call "proper" games on iOS, and I couldn't...
