Mega Man fan game will let you create your own levels

Mario Maker was an amazing game, in fact, it's the only reason my Wii U is still hooked up at my desk. If you're like me you've spent a lot of time thinking about what other franchises deserve this sort of level creator fare.  At ...

Review: Oceanhorn: Monster of Uncharted Seas

It isn't often here at Destructoid that we don't review a game that has been released for almost four years across seven platforms, but Oceanhorn is one of those cases. This Zelda-like started out as an iOS game way back in the age of Obama...

A Halo fan game lives on with the approval of 343 Industries

Fan games are always just a cease and desist away from being dashed into oblivion. We see it all the time. Companies have a legal interest in protecting their properties, and unilaterally shutting down fan games is often the only plausible ...

Black Mesa suffers another delay, Xen to be added in December

The development path of the fan made Half-Life remake, Black Mesa, has been rocky. Being greenlit on Steam years before actually appearing on the service, Crowbar Collective, the dev team behind the game, has been promising to add the infam...

Fan made Breath of the Wild inspired 2D game gets shut down

A little over a week after I posted about a fan made Breath of the Wild demake, it looks like Nintendo's lawyers have gotten on the scene. According to the game's developer, WinterDrake, Nintendo has issued a DMCA take down on his project f...

You can now date Leon Kennedy in a fan-made dating sim

I can't say I've ever thought about Leon Kennedy in a romantic light, but apparently there is a group of Resident Evil fans who have. Enter Resident Evil 4: Otome Edition, a fan-made dating simulator based on Resident Evil 4 from the perspe...

Yoshi in Sonic 2? Sure, I'd play that mod

All the way back in 2010 a user named Xenowhirl created a fantastic mod that put Yoshi into Sonic 2 -- seemingly a match made in heaven. It was only recently released online, but you can experience it with the link below. I'm amazed that pe...

Play as Roll in this Mega Man Game Boy mod

After quite a bit of work, modder Zynk Oxhyde has finished his Roll sprite hack for all five Game Boy Mega Man games. The hacks use custom sprite work in addition to the original source material, and Rush has been replaced by Tang...

This Xen teaser for Black Mesa is a promising start

The last time we spoke about Black Mesa, the fan-made Half-Life remake, it had to do with Xen. This time, we're also talking about Xen. And next time, I'm willing to bet, we'll still be going on about Xen. Today's news is a progress update ...

Fan project Pokemon Prism is dead, long live Pokemon Prism

This year hasn't been kind to Nintendo fan games. Project AM2R was killed, as was Uranium, which were both high profile re-imaginings of the Metroid and Pokemon universe respectively. Due to the latter's popularity there's a lot of pro...

ZeniMax Media is targeting a Doom fan game

The lasting legacy of Doom shouldn't only be attributed to the quality of the main game. Creator id Software had such a lax approach to fan creations that it eventually bought a few for a full retail release (Final Doom) as well as licensed...

Xen will be added to Black Mesa in summer 2017

Fan project Half-Life remake Black Mesa is mostly done at this point, but still on Steam Early Access. That's because it's missing the game's final chapter, the one that never went over well in the first place: Xen. In an update o...

Undertale 'little buddies' toy commercial has a lot of heart

Indie sensation Undertale is getting some new figures courtesy of Fangamer, and to promote the launch, it has released a trailer. It reminds me of an '80s commercial with little boys playing a little too roughly with their toys. You ca...

Fan-made Sonic Utopia might be the best 3D Sonic game ever

For all the efforts Sonic Team has made, it's never quite nailed the 3D Sonic formula. Fans have fond memories of Sonic Adventure, but anything even resembling the Dreamcast classics hasn't been made since 2003 (Sonic Heroes). Maybe Generat...

The creators of Pokemon Uranium are moving on

Last we heard from the developers of Pokémon Uranium, the fan game was "more alive than ever before" despite official download links being voluntarily taken down after it was made "clear" to the team that Nintendo wasn't cool with th...
