Review: Little Inferno (Switch)

The rise of Facebook in the late '00s shifted how people use the internet. With the gradual shift away from simply being a networking site, game developers were given a new platform to create games on. Sadly, most of these developers (*coug...   read

Serial Cleaner makes hiding bodies fun

Murder is messy. Think about it; dropping even a single body means a pool of blood, evidence, and potential witnesses. To get away with murder, you have to either think quick or know someone willing to get their hands dirty. In Serial Clean...   read

All the way back in February 2015, developer Playtonic invited YouTube personality Jon Jafari, aka "JonTron," to be in their game Yooka-Laylee -- which is about to launch next month. It was as simple as Jon giving the studio a "callout...   read

Joining the absurd list of games coming out soon is Shiness: The Lightning Kingdom, a pleasant-looking action-RPG with a combat system not unlike what you might find in an arena fighting game. Previously penciled in for a 2016 release, Shin...   read

Review: Macbat 64

I've never pitched a game to someone with a prototype, but I'd imagine Macbat 64 isn't far off from what publishers would have seen when looking at prototypes for Banjo-Kazooie and Donkey Kong 64. That is to say, bite-sized levels...   read

Double Fine-published GNOG is tactile, satisfying, indie as hell

When I first saw GNOG at IndieCade a few years back, I wasn't quite sure what to make of it. The game reminded me of those Fidget Cubes people seem to like so much -- more of an oddity to poke at than a traditional "game." And that's f...   read

Tripping through Songbringer's spiritual adventure

Songbringer exists at the intersection of nostalgia and innovation. Within the game's pixels are millions of unique worlds. It's The Legend of Zelda by way of Hyper Light Drifter, with one important distinction. Every player must input a si...   read

Review: Everything

At first glance, a game with a title like "Everything" seems like it might be difficult to describe. Like trying to pitch a show about nothing. Fortunately, things get quite a bit easier if you break it down a bit. Everything is a game abou...   read

Review: World of Goo (Switch)

Wait long enough, and everything old can start to feel new again. That's the happy accident of a situation I found myself in with World of Goo, the near-universally well-liked puzzle game about plucking and plopping down living bits of gooe...   read

Death isn't the end in Super Rude Bear Resurrection

I'm standing on the PAX East convention center floor with a controller in my hand. On the screen in front of me is a pissed-off bear wearing nothing but a backward, purple hat. He seems poised and ready for me to guide him through a room fu...   read

Review: Poi

What if I told you there is a game you can play right now that combines some of the best mechanics of 3D Mario games with a bunch of cute original characters, locations, and enemies? And what if I told you that very game also failed to be c...   read

Nidhogg 2 might look strange, but it plays like a dream

Nidhogg 2 makes a funny first impression. The game's new look is a bit brutish compared the sleek minimalism of its predecessor, and the expanded arsenal -- which includes a dagger, bow, and broadsword -- steers away from the elegance of ra...   read

Outlast 2 banned in Australia for rape scene

Human or not, Australia's Classification Board has decided Outlast 2 is too obscene for sale even with an R18+ rating, thus making the game impossible to sell in its current, unedited form. The scene in question suggests, but does...   read

Crawl's Early Access exit and console debut are set for April 11

With the news that Crawl is nearing a full launch on April 11, 2017, I'm left wondering if I had even realized, until just now, that Powerhoof was still doing its dungeon-based friend-slaying thing on Steam Early Access. Well, either way, n...   read

SteamWorld Dig 2 dev: 'This was the game everyone wanted to work on'

Image and Form had been teasing a new SteamWorld game for months before finally announcing SteamWorld Dig 2. All that teasing turned out to be a bait and switch. SteamWorld Quest, the game they had soft announced, was a red herring. The nex...   read

Love on winning her first IGF award: 'I guess I proved sex is maybe real after all'

PAX East is an event of extremes. Either you're in the midst of an overstimulating herd on the show floor, in a special, one-of-a-kind event room, or lying on a beanbag chair half dead on the floor. This year, Christine Love, creator of Lad...   read

Snake Pass is a relaxing, legless take on 3D platformers

It took me a few minutes to wrap my head around Snake Pass. The 3D platformer seems to have all the trappings of a golden era Rare joint. From enchanting environments, right down to a duo of goofy-looking animal heroes, almost every part of...   read
