Lust for Darkness is Lovecraftian BDSM horror

One of the last ever games to make it onto Steam Greenlight (an alternative program is coming next week) is Lust for Darkness, a first-person psychological horror game with "with erotic and occult themes" set in "the Yelvertones' victorian...

Half-Life 2: VR made it through Steam Greenlight

A virtual-reality makeover for Half-Life 2 sounds like a terrific new reason to revisit the iconic game, and with Valve prioritizing other initiatives, fans have taken it upon themselves to make it happen. The community-built Half-Life 2: V...

Fight not for but as lingerie in Pan Pan

Hoo boy, this one's a doozy! Recently put up on Steam Greenlight is a game made surprisingly not in Japan, but by a guy in Taiwan. While most soft-core hentai games like Senran Kagura or Akiba's Trip focus on seeing and collecting...

Review: CASE: Animatronics

I went into CASE: Animatronics with an open mind. Yes, as a Steam Greenlight game featuring evil animatronics, there was some obvious cause for trepidation. That it would turn out to be a shameless copy cat, a thin experience riding another...

Konrad the Kitten may very well be the killer app for VR

After having waded through far too many dull games for HTC Vive that all just want to make the controllers a gun, I've finally found a truly innovative game in Konrad the Kitten - A virtu-real cat. Instead of shooting the bad guys with...

 
 
Double Kick Heroes photo

Double Kick Heroes' multi-eyed demon train is metal as heck

Taiko Drum Master is good, clean fun, but you know what it isn't? Metal. I mean, not just the material the game is made out of (plastic) or what actual taiko drums are built from (wood). But also the chipper J-pop just doesn't appeal to the...

I'm keen on Keen, a Zelda-inspired puzzler

During GDC I met with a couple of lovely Brazilian gents from Cat Nigiri, a studio whose logo is a kawaii-looking kitty draped under slab of raw fish. The duo was showing off its commander-less Keen, a Zelda-inspired game that's basically o...

Bannerman photo

Bannerman is on Greenlight, and it looks great

I’ve never looked at a trailer that was almost entirely footage of a dude walking slowly across the screen and thought “Wow, that looks rad!” before, but hey, there’s a first time for everything. Meet Bannerman, a s...

Cat dating sim is trying to get on Steam

I love cats. I love every kind of cat. I just want to hug all of them but I can't. I can't hug every cat. So, there are a bunch of weird dating sims out there, and I consider myself a bit of an aficionado of the stranger ones. I've dated Jo...

 
 
Bubsy on Greenlight photo

#SaveBubsy

Almost did a spit-take when I saw this slide into my inbox today. Apparently, Retroism is on the quest to save Bubsy (yes, the platforming feline with radical CATtitude) and wants your help to do it. They're re-releasing two of Bubsy's &ldq...

Feast your eyes on sci-fi platformer-RPG Wanderer

When it comes to pixel art, there is good stuff and there is bad stuff. Recently launched on Kickstarter, Wanderer falls easily into the former category. I just love the look of the pixelated characters on the more painterly backgrounds. On...

 
 
Unbox photo

I like the look of this 3D platformer about, uh, boxes

If we can be bread, we can be anything. Looks like sentient boxes are next. I don't pay much attention to what's happening on Steam Greenlight these days, but the occasional game still rises from the depths and onto my radar. Unbox is a 3D ...

 
 
 
Roll Playing Game photo

Roll Playing Game gets the ball rolling this fall

We might just be in a new renaissance of "roll the ball to the goal" games right now. Super Impossible Road showed us the benefits of breaking the rules. Polyball took it to a trippy otherworld. Now we have word about Roll Playing Game, whi...

 
 
 
Big Fish Legend photo

Game on Steam rumoured to have been stolen by seller

[Update: It appears as though this may well have been an unfortunate misunderstanding, as the save location on the version of Big Fish Legend available from Alawar actually mentions Igry.ru. This screenshot showing the location has been twe...

Suffer through economic recession in indie RPG Family Man

Papers, Please released a couple years ago, but it struck a chord with many who played it. One of the most discussed elements was the decision-making process between doing what is right and doing what is necessary. First-person role-playin...

 
 
Ink photo

Ink is like Super Meat Boy if Meat Boy's blood were a rainbow

Today is a good day to celebrate rainbows, eh? I mean, every day is a good day to celebrate rainbows, and even if that weren't the case, I'd still highlight Super 91 Studios' Ink. It started as an entry to Ludum Dare 32, whose theme was "A...

Belated Father's Day: Throw babies in Dad Beat Dads

True story: my dad used to be quite the brawler. At a stocky 5'5" (165 cm), he was often underestimated. What he lacks in height and reach he makes up for in tenacity. What I'm trying to say is that I'm pretty sure my dad could beat up you...

Mechanophiles rejoice, Stick Shift is on greenlight

Remember that time Laura jacked off a car? Yeah, it’s the reason she’s banned from every Kwik-Fix and car dealership in Britain. [Editor's Note: I was only banned from a couple of Michelin Tyre Centres, okay?] Well now...
