Starbound exits Steam Early Access on July 22

I played too much Starbound too early, and as we inch closer to the next major update -- the one that'll push it out of Steam Early Access at long last -- that sentiment keeps coming up. A bunch of us want to give the extraterrestrial sandb...   read

You can try Killing Floor 2's Sharpshooter class right now with an opt-in beta

I'm still down for Space Pirates and Zombies 2

Kirby's Dream Course holds a special place in gaming history. Despite releasing more than 20 years ago and featuring a unique gameplay hook, it didn't see many copycats. Sure, there have been other golf games, but nothing has been quite lik...   read

The studio behind Rust has a new Minecraft-style VR game

Welkin Road is like Mirror's Edge without the story

Parkitect nails that classic theme park sim vibe

To my ridiculous mind, Parkitect sounds like a parakeet mech action figure, but it's actually a theme park simulation game -- one that was cool enough to make it onto Patrick's big list of indie titles to look for in 2016. It's taking a ba...   read
