Mushroom 11's world is beautiful desolation

Every so often a game comes along that lends itself to a big ol' screenshot gallery. To fit the bill, a game obviously needs to look good, but it also helps if it has a simple control scheme that allows easy access to the F12 key. Typically...   read

At last! The Witness releasing in January 2016

EA could stand to put out more games like Unravel

You Must Build a Boat has been in the works for a while. Originally planned as a free update to hit match-three puzzle game 10000000, it eventually ballooned into something big enough to be its own thing. That was more than a year ago. Aft...   read

Affordable Space Adventures is the Wii U experience I imagined in 2012

When Nintendo first unveiled the Wii U, my mind raced with ideas for games that could be created with the two-screen interface. A lot of the cool stuff that the DS did could be transferred to the big screen. Better yet, titles like those th...   read

Planet of the Eyes is a treacherous place for Polaroid robots

Crash landing on an alien planet is the worst. There's hazardous flora, deadly fauna, and even rock formations that seem to have some sort of blood lust. That just piles on top of the existential crisis of being a robot with an unknown purp...   read
