Hive Jump will make its way to Wii U this very week

As an August 2014 Kickstarter, Hive Jump was eventually able to make it to PC earlier this year, but there was just one more platform that needed to be hit -- Wii U. It's been interesting to say the least to see which developers are co...

Review: Kingdom: New Lands

Kingdom takes strategy and distills it down to its simplest systems. There's one currency to keep track of, it's either going out to expand and upgrade capability, or it's coming in from workers and exploration. The original game had one go...

Review: Tokyo Dark

You're looking at a nervous girl. She has a hostage and holds a knife in her hands. There's a gun in yours. You're the only character that isn't in danger, but despite that the situation is as tense as it can get. The main character is neve...

Review: SteamWorld Dig 2

I was pleasantly surprised by 2013's SteamWorld Dig, a 2D throwback that borrowed some of the best bits of Spelunky and Terraria and combined them into a charming, snack-sized platformer. The main gameplay loop is more fun than it...

STRAFE is getting a massive update with extra content

Say what you will about the hugely divisive STRAFE, but I thought the game was a total blast. It certainly can be obtuse and definitely isn't an old-school shooter, but developer Pixel Titan's take on on first-person Spelunky was a challeng...

Review: West of Loathing

West of Loathing is a point-and-click adventure that doubles as a turn-based RPG. The artwork consists of crude stick figures, drawn in a typical western setting, with a stubbornly black and white color palette. If you’re looking for ...

Wine-making sim Terroir looks delightful

Confession: I spent a solid 10 minutes researching terms that wine enthusiasts and sommeliers use to describe alcoholic grape juice. I don't drink wine unless it comes in a cardboard box and up until today, I thought everything Paul Giamatt...

Don't let Cuphead's art overshadow its soundtrack

Cuphead is out next Friday, and I can hardly believe it's almost here. I've been so obsessed with the exquisite art and animation that Kristofer Maddigan's big-band soundtrack has gone under-noticed. Nothing like a behind-the-scenes look at...

I've been flying through Fugl's voxel world to relax

I often play horror games, and while I enjoy them, they tend to leave me feeling tense and in need of something much lighter to take away the stress. After the crazy WTF-filled ride that was Observer, I was itching for something I could jus...

Review: Hiveswap: Act 1

I used to read a lot of webcomics, and one of my favorites was MS Paint Adventures, particularly the Problem Sleuth series. The comic is drawn and animated by Andrew Hussie, and has explored several different themes and genres over the year...

Super Fancy Pants Adventure lands on Steam next week

Fancy Pants, Fancy Pants... oh my gosh, Fancy Pants! I had forgotten about these Flash platformers up until now, but they served me well as time-wasters years ago. Brad Borne is back this month with the long-awaited follow-up, Super Fancy P...
