Rad Rodgers 1.5 patch is a major improvement

In the comments section of my rather scathing review of Rad Rodgers, one of the devs behind the game, a man named Fred, was wondering what happened. In a rather refreshing show of humility, he wasn't upset that I disliked the game, but ques...

King of the Hat is my favorite game from EGLX

No Truce With the Furies gets new name and gameplay trailer

Fossil Hunters' casual co-op is perfect for parties

The cornucopia of games making up the show floor of EGLX is a mix of old and new, with arcade classic rubbing shoulders with the indie hits of tomorrow. There are a lot of inventive ideas here, but what I'm looking for are games I can play ...


Helltown is a special mix of low-poly horror

If you've been paying attention to the games I write about here, then you've probably noticed that I gravitate towards low-poly games with weird art. If it looks like it was created twenty years ago, I'm in. I love that chunky stuff; I can'...

Review: Into the Breach

How do you follow up a game like FTL? The game became such a huge hit in 2012 and showed what a successful Kickstarter could look like. Many people fondly look back at the countless hours lost in space, watching crew members and s...


H1Z1 is going free-to-play today

H1Z1 is now going free-to-play, which you may find odd considering just last week, H1Z1 finally had a full release. The history of this game is a very turbulent one, but the short version is that it once ruled the Steam charts in 2015 befor...


Pizza Titan Ultra is a game about delivering pizzas in a mech

Pizza Titan Ultra is a frantic video game about piloting a mech to deliver pizzas and oh my goodness, how has this not been done before? It's just one of those ideas; I immediately understand the appeal. This is in production at Breakfall,...

I can’t say I’ve ever heard of CHUCHEL before I accepted this review. A code appeared for us describing a cool soundtrack and hunting for cherries, but it wasn’t until someone replied saying Amanita Design was behind the g...


Co-op action-RPG The Swords of Ditto out in April

We've touched on The Swords of Ditto's cheerful Saturday-morning-cartoon aesthetic before but I can't say enough good things. It's marvelous and rich in detail. I kept pausing this trailer to take it all in. For those just catching up, thi...


It's time to put Way to the Woods on your radar

Way to the Woods is just the little pick-me-up I needed on a tired Monday morning. It's a game about deer exploring a world seemingly abandoned by humans, and simply put, it's lovely. I particularly like the giant cat's sewer lair. That's ...


Review: Fear Effect Sedna

Gaming's most unlikable protagonists are back. Yes, Hana, Rain, Deke, and Glas have returned from an extended hiatus to wreak havoc and steal stuff in their own inimitable way. Lock and load folks because, some 17 years later, Fear Effect i...


You'll prey on humans in the sci-fi horror game Carrion

We're so often the ones fighting against monsters in games that whenever there's an opportunity to change roles, I've got to relish it. Carrion from Phobia Game Studio is pitched as a "reverse horror game," and it calls to mind a short but ...


Review: Pit People

I really admire The Behemoth. The studio has found success time and time again without resorting to sequels, charting a varied course from Alien Hominid to Castle Crashers to BattleBlock Theater. The team's latest, Pit People, lives in yet ...
