Blasphemous is another action-platformer to watch

Having seen a few early gifs here and there, I've been waiting for a good opportunity to talk about Blasphemous. The now-live Kickstarter campaign will do just fine in that respect. This is a brutal-looking 2D action-platformer from The Ga...   read

A Hat in Time is set for a fall 2017 release

Shame on me for hibernating on A Hat in Time these past few years, because it's looking fantastic -- not just as a 3D platformer inspired by the greats, but as one that seems to be doing its own thing. Along with today's trailer, which sho...   read

Eagle Island has one of the best demos I've ever played

I've been following Eagle Island for a while after seeing some awesome looking GIFs of it on Twitter. It's a procedurally generated Metroidvania and/or roguelike about a boy and his pet owl that he has trained to attack at his will.&nb...   read

Fans mistake Wild West Online screenshot for Red Dead Redemption 2 'leak'

Earlier this week, a supposed leaked screenshot from Red Dead Redemption 2 surfaced online. It's a genuine image, as it turns out, but there's just one problem: it's not from Rockstar's coveted new open-world adventure. It's actually from s...   read

Shantae: Half-Genie Hero is headed to Nintendo Switch

WayForward isn't done with Shantae: Half-Genie Hero, and that's fine by me. The latest development? A Nintendo Switch version! It's in the works for a summer release, with "full details coming soon." Love that color palette. Unlike so many...   read

Back in 2015, a Kickstarter began for a 1990s-style first-person shooter that is now culminating in tomorrow's release of Strafe. Now under the Devolver Digital umbrella, the game is going live on Steam for $19.96 tomorrow, but bargain...   read

Sci-fi exploration game Exo One looks like a total trip

Exo One is the type of game that's better seen than explained. It makes total sense, then, that the first line under "About this project" on its Kickstarter page isn't a written summary, but a gif -- a short snippet of momentum-based gamep...   read

The composer of Jet Set Radio has new music for Hover

Two years ago, the future-set parkour game Hover: Revolt of Gamers rolled onto Steam Early Access, and to this day, it's still a work-in-progress on the platform. One of the things that put the project on my radar back when it was seeking K...   read

Shovel Knight: Specter of Torment dated on Wii U and 3DS

Shovel Knight: Specter of Torment is a fantastic expansion, and previous owners of the base game are getting it for free. The only problem is that given the (likely lucrative) timed exclusive deal with Nintendo, developer Yacht Club Ga...   read

Review: Shiness: The Lightning Kingdom

These days, it's unusual for me to actively seek out role-playing games. The allure of embarking on a grand adventure is still strong as ever, and I love assembling and growing attached to a crew of characters, but the sheer time commitment...   read

The Super Nintendo is next in line for a visual compendium

Review: Night in the Woods

I'm not sure how to describe Night in the Woods. Even after playing through the game twice, every attempt at defining it feels wrong. I want to say it's a silly 2D platformer almost as much as I think it's a soulful adventure game. Other ti...   read

Review: Thimbleweed Park

Thimbleweed Park was Kickstarted back in 2014 and promised a brand new game in an old genre, a return to the classic point-and-click adventure titles produced by LucasArts in the late '80s and early '90s. The title has an impeccab...   read
