Orb Farm, an algae-growing aquarium game, is so relaxing

Growing up, I never had guppies or goldfish. Weirdly, I never even bothered to ask my parents for permission even though, in retrospect, they probably would've said yes. (I once had a pet turtle.) But I did get super into freshwater aqua...

Nugget Royale is my new lunchtime browser distraction

I'm not above spending a sleepy lunch break on browser games, even when I could be out for a relaxing stroll, reading a book, meditating, or accomplishing something else – literally anything at all – instead. And so I bring you ...

Why be an untitled goose when you can be a lovely duck?

With the release of Untitled Goose Game and the reveal of Sirfetch'd, it seems that waterfowl are having their video game moment in the sun. But geese are arrogant dicks who will attack you and Pokemon Sword isn't out for almost two months....

Type stuff, see stuff in Terry Cavanagh's new game

Show, don't tell is the easiest way to convey what Constellation is about. Found at the perfectly appropriate JustTypeStuff.com, this free browser-based game-like thing has you typing words to make objects appear. It's a neat little ex...

Yep, Line Rider is still good as hell

A few days ago, YouTube recommended me some video for Line Rider, a monstrously effective time-waster I haven't thought about in close to a decade. Like most of these automated suggestions, I only gave the video's title a glance before movi...

There's going to be a Clicker Heroes 2

I escaped the clutches of Clicker Heroes once, and I'll do it again. It was my favorite of the time-wasting, dopamine-releasing idle games. It got me real good. Now, a sequel is underway for next year. It's a substantial step up, visually ...

Runescape headed to mobile devices next year

RuneScape's been around forever. Since first releasing in 2001, Jagex's browser-based MMORPG has quietly built a huge player base. To many, months (or years) spent adventuring across RuneScape are a defining experience; an introduction...

Terry Cavanagh releases his next game, Tiny Heist

Terry Cavanagh is the man behind VVVVVV and Super Hexagon. Even if you've never played those games, you've probably heard about their extreme difficulty. While I love VVVVVV and have since surmounted most of its challenges, I'm still perple...

Dead or Alive Xtreme is coming to PC

DMM Games, ever heard of them? Before this morning, neither did I. Apparently it's a Japanese game publisher that focuses on browser games. Some of its titles are published in English at Nutaku.com, another website I'd never heard of until ...

These retro X-Men games are truly terrible

Bless 'em for trying, but the retro inspired mini-games 20th Century Fox cooked up to promote X-Men: Apocalypse are pretty damn terrible. Tenuously tied to the film as a throwback to the '80s when the movie is set, Retro X: Arcade is a set ...

Nintendo pulls plug on fan-made Zelda browser game

Remember that voxel Zelda browser game we told you about? The fan-made tribute crafted without Nintendo's permission? The one all the game websites were talking about? Surely you know where I'm going with this, right? It took just a couple ...
